Description


Enjoying a peaceful location in the heart of the Indian Ocean's Baa Atoll, the newly opened Amilla Fushi is destined to become an icon of contemporary luxury in one of the most spectacular locations in the world. The resort's lush green interior gives way to a ring of perfect white-sand beach, which shelves gradually into the tantalising crystal-clear blue waters that surround this idyllic piece of paradise - part of a UNESCO-listed World Biosphere Reserve. Here, the focus is about creating an authentic island home-from-home for each Amilla Fushi guest (in fact, the translation of Amilla Fushi is 'my island home'), complemented by attentive service and a genuinely friendly, laid-back ambience. While here, guests will delight at the culinary offerings available at the restaurants - all of which are deftly influenced by the vision of the island's critically acclaimed restauranteur, Luke Mangan - while Javvu Spa is a welcoming haven for guests who wish to unwind and recharge their batteries, whether they're having a spa treatment or not. The resort prefers to describe its stylish accommodation as 'homes and residences', rather than rooms and suites, underlining its wish to create a comfortable, intimate environment in which guests can truly relax, with a collection of beach houses and residences, lagoon and ocean houses, each with their own freshwater pool and replete with state-of-the-art technology and super-king-size beds. Perfect for a memorable romantic holiday or an action-packed family holiday, there is plenty on offer to keep everyone content, including a kids' club, dive centre and complimentary watersports.

Beach Facilities

The curvy, infinity-edge swimming pool at Amilla Fushi is one of the largest in the Maldives and nestles against the pure white sand that envelops this paradise island. Adjacent to the pool is Baazaar, social hub of the island during the day and a great place in which to indulge in the flavoursome, casual cuisine and refreshing drinks that are readily available. Spend the day around the pool or sink your toes into the warm sand as you head to one of the beach's sun loungers. Both offer the perfect locations in which to enjoy reading, sipping cocktails, swimming and snorkelling, chatting with new-found friends or simply doing nothing at all. 

Diving

Amilla Fushi is ringed by a collection of unspoilt coral reefs that teem with colourful aquatic life, making it an ideal location for scuba-diving and snorkelling. The house reef is home to The Blue Hole, which is part of a UNESCO-listed biosphere and boasts seasonal residents such as Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. Head out to the house reef by speedboat or take a short swim or snorkell to enjoy this incredible natural wonder. Alternatively, explore Hanifaru Bay on an excursion arranged by the resort's Dive Butler team. This uninhabited area is marine-protected and one of the best destinations in the world to feed the large groups of Manta Rays that frequent the bay from May to November.
 
The resort has its own dive centre, managed by Dive Butler International. A multi-lingual team of diving instructors lead guests of all ability on a range of tailored dives to over thirty spectacular dive sites, with the choice of novice divers being PADI-certified or SSI-certified.
