MasterChef Sweden Latest Cook Out In Meeru Island Maldives

Several years ago, when MasterChef Sweden aired for the first time on Swedish National TV, nobody anticipated having a pivotal episode of the competition to be shot here in Meeru Island Resort & spa.

November 2021 saw the Sveriges mästerkock 2021, (MasterChef Sweden 2021) that airs on TV4, its production crew, judges ( from across Sweden such as Mischa Billing, Markus Aujalay, and Tom Sjostedt) and the contests arrive at Meeru for episode 12 of season 11 which was filmed on Meeru Island in the Maldives instead of the studio kitchen in Sweden.

To welcome the team, Meeru Island along with the Maldives Chefs Guild, hosted a Maldivian night themed dinner. The evening kicked off with the contestants arriving at Meeru Island via speed boat while the judges was flown in via domestic seaplane. The Meeru team members’ welcomed the MasterChef team in traditional Maldivian attire, music and drums, handing them delicious coconut-infused drinks.

This was followed by an elegantly prepared buffet dinner of authentic local cuisine, accompanied by the joyous sounds of Bodu Beru played by members of the Meeru team.

For the cooking segment, the team sourced their vegetables, salads, fruits and spices from Meeru’s Organic Gardens. Fish was caught by the contestants themselves using traditional Maldivian hand-reel fishing excursion they took the same day.

The team from Maldives Chefs Guild, along with the incredible multi-national team of chefs of Meeru explained to the contestants how each ingredient was used for their taste. Using the information and tasting, two teams prepared locally themed dishes for the competition at the oceanfront Asian Wok Restaurant. The testing session by the judges was held on the beach, where the gentlemen’s group won the round.

The following morning the elimination round was held at the Pavillion Bar. The contestants had to taste Meeru’s signature curry dish, ‘Kadu Kukulhu’ (a  fish-based dish named Sea Chicken) and write down the ingredients.

The Maldives cooking challenge ended with five contestants qualifying for the next round, where they ended the day sailing into the Maldivian sunset style in the timber yacht Kamana.

June 2021 is Ocean Awareness Month at Meeru Island Resort & Spa

Ocean Awareness Month Celebration at Meeru Island Resort & Spa, Maldives

We started celebrating the month of the ocean with an awareness session about coral reefs and our property’s Coral Restoration Project on World Reef Awareness Day on 1 June 2021. 

The day began with collecting broken pieces of corals, which were carefully attached to coral frames, and then placed in Meeru’s Coral Garden for the fragments to flourish. Meeru team members, guests, and staff from Euro-Divers Maldives joined hands to realise this eco-project.

The Coral Garden Project at Meeru Island Resort & Spa

Coral Garden Meeru Island Maldives

Meeru Island Resort & Spa’s coral garden is one of the most successful coral restoration projects in the Maldives. This reef care project started in 2016 in association with Save the Beach, a Maldivian non-profit organisation, after a coral bleaching event that affected most of the coral reefs in the country.

This project allows us to foster interest and awareness of coral reefs and the global threats facing them to inspire actions to conserve our resources when people visit the ocean.

Our aim has always been to help regenerate reef segments, promote coral growth, and provide guests with an enchanting underwater experience in Meeru’s lagoon whilst simultaneously creating respect and an understanding of the benefits of corals and their contribution to the ecosystem.

Today, more than 3,000 coral fragments of about 14 different species have been planted, with an average growth rate of 7 centimetres per year.

Many marine species have made Meeru’s Coral Garden their habitat, with the biodiversity of more than 22 fish types in the lagoon, including some rare species like ghost pipefish and tetralia crab, which is an excellent coral crab.

Other species such as turtles, rays, and small reef sharks can be spotted cruising in this area, an awe-inspiring sight for all marine life enthusiasts.

Coral Garden Monitoring


Coral Garden at Meeru Island Resort & Spa Maldives

The Coral Garden Project is looked after by our well-trained Meeru team members, who frequently monitor the area to clean the algae and check the temperature changes that affect the coral growth rate.

So far, five different ways of coral plantation have been researched and implemented in the coral garden itself.

Our resort team has also installed a web camera that sits underwater in the coral garden situated on the island’s eastern part.  The webcam feed can be seen live directly from the Meeru website – an enthralling aquarium as described by visitors to the nursery and viewers of the live webcam.
