What We Love
- An ultra-luxe retreat with a private pool in the Maldives, with breakfast, lunch and dinner Opting to stay in an Ocean Reef house and watching the marine life swim below
- Paddleboarding in the shallow lagoon of the island
- Soaking up the sun on your private deck after taking a dip in the pool
What To Know

- Check in starts at 7am so you won't have to wait around or kill time if you get in early
- Free WiFi is available in public areas
Leave the real world behind as you step onto the jetty of Amilla Fushi. The island is exactly how it is pictured – practically perfect in every way. But despite all the Instagrammable moments, we beg you to tuck away your phone and instead take in the miraculous sight of aquamarine waters that take a sharp drop to sapphire blue as the reef gives way to deep ocean. Guests in the over-water Ocean Reef Houses (complete with sundeck and private plunge pool) will have a front row view, and access to the waters.
Less castaway and more James Bond sexy, the villas here sport brilliant white interiors and sleek, geometric architecture that contrast beautifully with the stunning natural beauty of the island. It is ridiculously luxurious, and oh-so indulgent. Adding to the extravagance is its line-up of restaurants. Dine at pop-up Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen and Bar, Feeling Koi, modern Japanese cuisine with a Latin-influenced twist and a World Luxury Restaurant 2017 Awards nominee and other world class establishments.
To top it all off, the resort sits within the UNESCO-protected Baa Atoll. This kaleidoscopic underwater playground is packed with over 250 species of coral and 1,200 species of fish – any diver’s dream. The resort’s Hub offers plenty of diving opportunities and learning opportunities with their marine biology team. But if you’re here more for barefoot living, Javvu Spa will help you unwind and kick back in style.
How to Get There
Great stay, but room for improvement over the many other 5 star Maldives resorts I've experienced. This is based on holding a very high standard for the amount of money paid. Location and house reef very good, despite the coral bleaching affecting all of the Maldives. Room and bed were fantastic, although not perfectly clean. Stray hairs in many spots from previous guests. I went specifically for good vegan food. Despite many emails to be prepared, they were not ready and it took quite an effort to get more than the usual salad or risotto. Once the head chef got onto it an amazing menu was offered and all was good. But the lack of preparation despite much prior communication gave a very poor start.Dive centre was amazing, great team and very good dive sites. Coral and fish life are still great below 5-10m once past the bleaching zone. Butler service was fantastic. My butler Teddy was amazing and always ready to help.I would recommend the resort if it is priced atleast 30-40% less than Anantara or Four Seasons, as much better overall experiences in organization and resort facilities.
Our holiday was great, the whole week we had a wonderful weather, we had our privacy in the beach house with a pool, the room was really big and had everything in it and the staff helpful and nice! I had problems with sleeping because of the sound of the birds on the Island and the wind (was really strong) but I have a very light sleep - but I would go again!:)
What a wonderful resort. We have visited the Maldives many times and rate this among the best we have stayed at. The ambiance of the resort just suited us - relaxed and friendly. We were made to feel like family. We spent a blissful two weeks and didn't want to come home.There is a good house reef and we were lucky enough to swim with turtles when we went snorkelling. The range and variety of fish is truly amazing.Our 'house' and ocean reef house, was nearly just that - it had anb enormous floor space - and every amenity you could think of.All, in all, good choice of restaurants on a standard half board package with a discount on the signature restaurant, Feeling Koi, which is well worth a visit and you must try the WOW platter for dessert, it really is amazing.A wonderful experience, so much so that we've already booked for next year.
We have visited many top resorts in the Maldives, the value you get for the money at Amilla Fushi is unbeatable. The size of any of the villas is huge, not to forget the design and interiors. Hussein our room boy did a great job during our stay. We chosed to stay at a reef and a beach villa for 5 nights, and have not yet decided, which villa we will chose next time. The pool of the beach villa is almost as big as a standard hotel pool!Beautiful beaches, gorgeous island nature, unforgettable lovely sunsets at Fish&Chip.Good food with a variety of choice! Our favourite restaurant was Fishing Koi and Fish&Chip close to the beachThe snorkelling in this Atoll is fantastic, so no need to dive for us. Great hospitality! Thank you once again to all the members, especially to Jean NoëlWe hope to come back soon.
1.Describe the service you experiencedAisha is very kind and she always give us a hand while we just encounter some problem.Most important of all, we feel no pressure in interacting with her. 2.Tell us how you liked the roomThe furniture of the house is elegant and the whole building is just like a white piano standing on the ocean. Also, the scenery we saw from the ocean reef house was really like the heaven.3.Talk about the location Location of Amilla Fushi is great. Comparing with other resort, we could go snorkeling just around our house which is a special experience for us.4.Say what you liked best We thought the scenery is the best part of our journey.
