With some of the best white sand beaches in the world and the shiniest coral walls you’ll ever see, The Maldives sit comfortably on the top of the list to offer you the trip of a lifetime. This Indian Ocean paradise consists of nearly 1,200 islands, where pretty much every island is a resort. With over 100 very different resorts to choose from we decided to spend our days at the beautiful and secluded Fushifaru.
Your trip starts with a 35-minute seaplane ride from Velana airport, with incredible views of the atolls and turquoise waters from above.
As a guest, you will be able to enjoy their whiter than white sandy beaches, a variety of incredible dinning options and most importantly, you’ll be able to pick from its range of luxurious rooms, overwater bungalows, and beach villas.
After a breathtaking 35-minute ride by seaplane, we were welcomed with drums, music and a seashell horn by the entire Fushifaru team. What an incredible and unique way to escort us to reception!
Our first thought: never leaving this island!
We had the pleasure of staying at 2 of the most beautiful rooms they offer: the Sunset Pool Beach Villa and the Jacuzzi Water Villa.
Combining Maldivian design with modern décor, these rooms have a wonderful tropical vibe, direct access to the pool and ocean, and feature air conditioning, a private bathroom that could be indoor or outdoor, cable/satellite TV, hairdryer, free Wi-Fi, telephone, minibar, coffeemaker, and a safe.

OUR FAVOURITE THING
The hammocks, swings and palm trees that make the island the most unique and picturesque in the Maldives!
From the moment we were welcomed to the beat of drums and music to the unforgettable sunrises and sunsets overlooking the Indian Ocean from our pool, our overall experience was remarkable! We spent six memorable days literally in HEAVEN!
