Nestled between a national Marine Protected Area and three of the Maldives’ most iconic dive sites, Fushifaru Maldives is boutique Maldivian chic resort with an endless promise of adventure, excitement, discovery and serenity all in one diverse landscape.

Located on the far North East border of Faadhippolhu Atoll (Lhaviyani Atoll), it’s only a 35 minute breathtaking seaplane flight away from Velana International Airport.

The island is surrounded by healthy reefs, which are populated by confetti-coloured fish such as clownfish, triggerfish, parrotfish and trumpet fish.

A place where anyone is welcome to explore and relax in a journey of self-discovery.


Merging quintessential Maldivian design with modern aesthetics, Fushifaru Maldives’ 63 Beach and Water Villas exude a sense of cosines yet luxurious in space and amenities.

Each of the Villas feature open-air bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, private verandas with dining areas and breath-taking views of the surrounding area – some Villas feature private plunge pools.

Sunrise Villas look out towards “Maakandu”, the wild open Indian Ocean while the Sunset Villas look out towards “Etherevari”, the calm crystal clear lagoon and the Water Villas face “Kandu-olhi”, the vibrant channel.

The new Water Villas exude privacy and will be ideally placed for snorkelling the house reef and admiring the variety and diversity of colourful marine life. Wake up above the sea and walk out onto your terrace overlooking your private infinity pool and the turquoise colours of the ocean. Indulge in a jacuzzi bath ceremony under the blue skies, or as it turns gold with the sun setting. Relax and rejuvenate, unwind and reconnect with nature.


Flavours and fusion

Dining experiences focus on regional and international flavours to suit every taste and dietary requirement.

Scrumptious breakfast buffets and palate pleasing international cuisine are offered at Korakali.

Raakani, named after the Spider Conch Shell, exudes elegance and exquisite ‘surf and turf’ cuisine. Sit back and unwind with the subtle use of local materials such as palm-thatched dining platforms with panoramic views of the crystal clear seas and white beaches of Lhaviyani atoll.

Signature cocktails and detox-tails are complemented by the best sunset views on island whilst lounging by the pool at Fanihandhi.

A range of international dishes and snacks can be served straight to the privacy of your Villa, 24 hours. Pick a spot anywhere on the island or on the sandbank for a unique culinary quest of a lifetime.
