Coconut products

Coconuts or Kaashi in Dhivihe grow naturally in the Maldives. At Jumeirah Vittaveli, this versatile fruit is collected from the ground and converted into useful products.

The juice is served as a refreshment, dried shells are crafted into souvenirs and coconut oil is extracted to make spa products. This practice was first established after a guest booked in for a massage with an allergy to commercially available products.

Our team made an alternative oil from the island's coconuts and ever since has held regular demonstrations. Guests gather round and watch as a machine is used to grate the coconut flesh, it is then placed in a net bag and the milk extracted. The liquid is boiled and as the water evaporates, the oil separates. Guests are welcome to buy the natural coconut massage oil in the resort's Talise Spa.
