As the focal point of incomparable luxury, it’s no secret that the Maldives are home to the world’s most exclusive and indulgent resorts. This week, we wanted to shift the focus to a decadent duo that offers everything from elegant lagoon villas to exclusive health and fitness programs and world-renowned restaurants.
Introducing Amilla Fushi and her naughty sister island, Finolhu…
Bordered by pure white sand, serene lagoons and coral reefs teeming with ocean life, one glance at the Villa Residences of Amilla Fushi and it’s easy to see why they are considered the height of lush living incomparable to anywhere else in the world. These unique abodes feel like home from the moment you walk in, carefully designed to encompass the luxuriousness of being on holiday with the comfort that comes with feeling right at home. Available in 4-bedroom, 6-bedroom and 8-bedroom options, these residences are perfect for a family getaway, couples retreat or a holiday with friends, while also providing a fabulous space for family gatherings, celebrations and special events.
But the magic of Amilla Fushi doesn’t stop at where you sleep. This island paradise truly leaves nothing to be desired, boasting something for everybody amongst its state of the art facilities and extensive array of unique activities. The health-conscious can take part in the exclusive Bodyism health program, specifically curated to rejuvenate your mind and body through a variety of tailored treatments. Or perhaps you’re a foodie, in which case you simply can’t go past the acclaimed Feeling Koi restaurant – just one of five spectacular places to eat in the resort – which combines authentic Japanese cuisine with a Latin twist that is as mouth-watering as it is unique. Follow this with a cocktail or two at the stylish 1 OAK Lounge to discover the sophisticated allure of the Maldivian nightlife.
Finolhu is Amilla’s trendy younger sister – just as extravagant and special but with a wicked side that can’t quite be contained. Characterised by a youthful vibrancy, this resort is perfect for those who seek a getaway that offers both fun-filled adventures and laid back luxury.
By day, take a stroll down the one kilometre long sandbar to the funky Fish and Crab Shack. Feast on platters of sumptuous, locally caught seafood and sip on a glass of your favourite champagne as you gaze into the distant horizon where clear skies meet the pristine ocean of infinite blue. By night, watch as this incredible island transforms into a thriving scene with endless opportunities. Make your way to 1 Oak Beach Club to sip on glasses of world class wine, cocktails and spirits and take in the incredible panoramic views surrounding the Baa Atoll as acrobats perform around you. And for the party animals among us, there are no shortage of memorable events to quench your thirst for revelry, with the Beach Club playing host to a variety of extravaganzas that feature the world’s hottest DJ’s.
But whether you tire from being the life of the party or simply want a place of your own to relax and unwind between activities, the sophisticated modern luxury of Finolhu’s villas are the perfect place to retreat to. The spectacular 2-Bedroom Ocean Lagoon Villa will feel like your home away from home, with its spacious rooms, direct access to the stunning turquoise lagoon below and all the modern luxuries you could ever ask for. All in all, Finolhu is the perfect combination of cool and calm that is simply unmatched anywhere else in the world.
