The best thing about this restaurant is the bountiful breakfast. The food is of good quality and included both Maldivian and continental items.

Breakfast is value for money and really good compared to the size of the Hotel. If you ask from the chef, they will make some special dishes.

We arrive nearly midnight to check in at the Beehive hotel...and of course..we are famished... ordered some maldevian fish and it tasted fantastic.. the breakfast buffet (eventhough it is not extravagant) is great and what matters the food are actually tasty combining some western fare with some traditional curries and maldevian breakfast.

“THE HIVE”, offering an A LA CARTE Menu with fusion of local and International dishes. A rich breakfast buffet is offered daily. We, at Beehive Nalahiya believe that a productive day could only start with a nutritious breakfast.THE HIVE is located on the top floor of the hotel with a panoramic view of Male and surrounding ocean. This unique restaurant is known for its food quality, ambiance and atmosphere. It is now accepted by many businessmen and representatives of established businesses as the ideal place to meet their counterparts and invitees if it is to be in a quite undisturbed environment. Furthermore, a wifi connection with very excellent signals is available at THE HIVE.The hive accepts small to medium sized parties, receptions and functions celebrating special occasions. The assurance is to provide a hygienic, clean environment with quality food and service without any compromise.
