Womens dress code at Thudufushi/Athuruga restaurants

Hi,

I have a few sun dresses that are a respectable length but are either strapless / halterneck - is this going to be a problem as my shoulders would be uncovered? If so I have plenty of shawls :)

Thanks

Hi roz, your sundresses will be just perfect, it is only when you visit local islands/male that you are required to cover shoulders/knees,

(no swimwear in restuarants!)

I always really worry about this too...but always relax when I get there,,,it's always fine, you can tell as soon as you get there, that its ok. However I always pack a case full of pashminas just in case, never used them yet! Don't know why I do it really.

We are staying at Meeru. Will it be ok to wear my bikini under a sleeveless t shirt and shorts?

Have not been to meeru, but for breakfast and buffett lunch this is normally very ok, as long as not see through. I dress like this also, or with a beach dress over the top. Not for dinner though as you have guessed:))

However if not see through...whose to know!
