Meridian Adventure Dive resort takes pride in their exceptionally high standards – whether it be diving, dining or simply housekeeping service.

Restaurant & Dining

The Meridian Adventure Dive resort offers a ‘fusion’ restaurant, with a menu is designed to embrace food in its natural form, allowing for clean, uncomplicated flavours. The menus compliment the local Waisai culinary style rather than attempt to compete with it. Much of their produce is sourced locally, and some even grown fresh at the resort.

The Meridian Adventure Dive resort has a fully stocked bar with Juice, Sodas, Beer and Spirits, an International Wine List, and cocktails.

The resort is an environmentally conscious organisation that aims to minimise negative environmental impact. Plastic water bottles are not supplied – instead each room is supplied with two stainless steel water bottles which can be refilled at the water station at reception.
