Best New Plant-Based Eats in Maldives Resorts

In recent years, the trend of vegan and plant-based diets has been on the rise, driven by concerns over animal welfare, environmental impact, and the health benefits. This shift towards plant-based eating has not only impacted the food industry, but also the hospitality industry. The Maldives is not an exception. More resorts are introducing new menus to vegan travelers in Maldives. Vegans in Maldives can enjoy their stay without compromising their dietary preferences.
