Bars: After dinner fun
We liked going to the pool bar in the evening and relaxing on the loungechairs while looking into the ocean and swallowing as much rum as possible.
The Akiri bar is also nice, a very romantic atmosphere. Comfortable chairs grouped in 2s or 4s around little glass top tables with oil burning lamps. Nice memories of a couple of afternoons there drinking Tiger draft and talking about nothing important but having a great time doing it.
The Babuna bar is the biggest, with a large u shape bar, plenty of tables and chairs, darts, table tennis, and a dance floor. Any entertainment is held in there. While we were there they had crab races which was great to watch even if you are not a gambler. They had a magician which was very funny, and plenty of disco nights.
We found all the bar staff to be very entertaining and friendly.
Dress Code: Only dress code is no wet bathing suits at the bar......other then that you can spend your entire trip barefoot!

The Babuna Bar: A bit "Samey"
Between the two restaurants for the beach bungalows and villas is the Babuna Bar, a massive area which has a stage and recreation area for games, loads of tables, and of course the bar.
Evening entertainment mostly consisted of various live acts from nearby islands singing their hearts out. Now, I'm not one for commentling on other cultures music, but once you've heard one lot of maldivian singers, you've heard them all.
Other nights had quizzes, and one Maldivian night (more local music) but with guys doing demos of various local crafts and coconut-splitting gizmos. All good fun!
But remember always - pick the drinks from the front of the bar and not from the back shelf - and it's all inclusive! Wahey!
Dress Code: The only rule in the Babuna is no swimwear. . .
. . .or nudity!
