The newly opened Milaidhoo Island Maldives introduces mood dining, a specific combination of curated menu, designated location on the island, and spa elements to enhance the experience designed to change a person’s mood. Guests can choose from five different ‘moods’: ‘Deep Sleep’; ‘Getting into the Milaidhoo Mood’; ‘Sunrise Awakening’; ‘Curious Adventures’ and ‘Sunset Chill’. The theory behind mood dining is that certain foods can affect body chemistry and can therefore alter a person’s mood.  The location of the meal also helps shape the mood, which vary between a deserted island, sandbanks in the middle of the ocean, beach or simply on the private deck of the guest’s own villa.  The innovative concept is part of the luxury resort’s philosophy to offer guests authentic and meaningful experiences.
