After passing through the door, guests can immerse themselves in one of the Maldives’ most beloved stories about star-crossed lovers, Dhon Hiyala aa’i Alifulhu, as told by the resort’s grandparents and parents.
These beachfront villas make Oaga Art Resort one of the best resorts in Maldives for a honeymoon. They are also recommended for couples or families of three looking to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or have a relaxing holiday on the Maldives’ best beaches filled with new experiences.
The villa features brightly colored murals hand-drawn by local artists, depicting the epic story of the two lovers Dhon Hiyala and Alifulhu, full of splendour, magic, and wild creatures from the deep blue sea. To add color to the beach view, artist Mohamed Auzam (aka Keyolhu) hand-painted a circular pool inspired by “vevu,” the low traditional baths used by our forefathers.
Guests can also enjoy the ‘Gifili’ graffiti wall, which adds a modern twist to traditional Maldivian bathrooms. Ahmed Sobah (aka Toxicrew), a multi-disciplinary street artist, took inspiration from local animals such as the cat and rooster to transform each of the walls into one-of-a-kind works of street art.

The heart of Oaga Art Resort’s gastronomical journey, the main restaurant features food stalls with a variety of global cuisines and specialties. From Asian and seafood dishes to mixed grill, pastas, pizzas, and more, the menu has something for everyone. Kaa Kada, which translates loosely to “Food Stalls” in Dhivehi, is inspired by the comfort of food served on a busy street. Guests can watch the chefs prepare their meals and then enjoy them in a simple and comfortable island setting.
The specialty restaurant at Oaga Art Resort provides a one-of-a-kind dining experience that combines interactive literature and fine dining. Guests can journey through Chef Zuzu’s five-course meal, which tells age-old tales of lore depicting star-crossed lovers or mythical beasts, which is currently opening with Maldives folk tales. The restaurant, located in the island’s farthest reaches, is reminiscent of the intimacy offered by a traditional Fann’ge, a hut with palm thatchings. The resort hopes to provide guests with a culinary experience they will remember for the rest of their lives through fine art and movement. “Samaasaa,” which means “the action of providing or being provided with amusement or enjoyment” in Dhivehi, encapsulates the restaurant’s goal perfectly.
Raa Baa, located near the main pool, is the ideal place to spend an entire day lounging, playing games, or swimming. Guests can relax and enjoy the tropical atmosphere with a simple snack food menu available. The name “Raa Baa” is a playful wordplay on the Dhivehi word for alcohol (Raa) and an exclamation for wonder (Baa), both of which are also the names of two letters in the Dhivehi alphabet.
Situated at the corner of the island, Sobi Bar is a beach bar ideal for spending a tropical afternoon or evening. Guests can visit with friends, express their creativity, or reflect on their lives. The bar has a vinyl library, which is ideal for rediscovering favorite artists. Guests can also swim in the pool or on the nearby shores, or simply relax and enjoy the island atmosphere.
