Elevated Pan-Asian cuisine and elegant interiors informed by its precious gemstone namesake take centre stage at Jade, the resort’s new fine-dining establishment. Led by Head Chef Adesta Ginting, new signature dishes featuring the finest and freshest ingredients, complete with complementing saké pairings, include octopus curry, Singapore chilli prawns and pad thai – sitting alongside sashimi platters, chirashi sushi and Khmer Fish Amok. Dramatic Teppanyaki displays as well as a variety of yakitori skewers are also available.

WAVES, a beachside brasserie channels the essence of coastal living and offers stunning panoramic ocean views alongside a sustainably sourced seafood and reimagined BBQ, Creole-inspired menu. Created by Head Chef Tetarie Nitish, signature dishes include grilled lobster with fresh turmeric and coconut paste, red tuna carpaccio and Mauritius-style ceviche featuring palm heart, mango and octopus. As the sun sets, the casual yet stylish restaurant shifts into a lively lounge with live music and resident DJ sets alongside a tropical cocktail menu for a memorable evening.

What’s more, Le Méridien Ile Maurice’s sister property JW Marriott Mauritius Resort is delighted to welcome INDYA,offering a modern spin on traditional Indian cuisine under the guidance of Executive Chef Malik Basha. With an international culinary background and a recent Michelin Bib Gourmand award, Chef Basha brings a contemporary and refined approach to crafting modern and innovative Indian dishes. New menu items include paneer tikka with coriander pesto and Thai crispy noodles, duck chaap tandoori with korma curry and peri-peri sweet potato, and beef short ribs with confit chili, crispy garlic, and ginger—rooted in the Champaran region of India. The restaurant’s vibrant decor complements its modern Indian aesthetic.

Jade and WAVES join the other restaurants at Le Méridien Ile Maurice, as well as those at JW Marriott Mauritius Resort and The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa, Mauritius in forming an exciting, new ‘Destination Dining’ proposition.
