Soneva Fushi resort in the Maldives has unveiled a "world-first" dining experience, which will take guests high among the treetops.

Called Flying Sauces, the new eating option will offer guests the opportunity to combine culinary excellence with views across the resort.

Guest will embark and soar along a 200m (656ft) zipline, before reaching a specially constructed dining platform, suspended 12m (40ft) in the air.

Once at the platform, visitors will sit down and the resort's chef, Rasal Jayawardene, will prepare a seasonal menu in an open treetop kitchen, paired with a selection of the finest wines from Soneva Fushi's cellars.

The dining experience will be available to book for breakfast, high tea and dinner, with dishes inspired by ingredients freshly picked from the resort's organic gardens – accompanied by seafood that has been sustainably caught by local fishermen.

All Flying Sauces diners are required to wear a safety harness and the zipline trip takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes to complete.

"We're very proud to introduce our new Flying Sauces zipline dining experience," said CEO, Sonu Shivdasani.

"A first-of-its-kind concept, it is set to become a true bucket list experience and combines a thrilling zipline trail through our jungle with an exquisite seasonal fine dining menu, served at our elevated treetop dining platform by Chef Rasal."
