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
My daughter and i have just returned from Amilla Fushi after spending 9 nights there. I had to write a review to share how fantastic this place is. The ocean reef rooms are huge and beautiful, with an amazing terrace right on the beautiful ocean, where you can snorkel right there! Each guest has there own butler and nothing is too much trouble, they are on hand 24/7 to help with anything! Each villa has bicycles so you can ride around the island taking in the views. The food in all restaurants was fantastic. We had fun nights at the bar with the amazing Opal and Jo and team, they made us feel so welcome. There is a beautiful spa that is so peaceful and backs onto the beach and ocean. All the staff on the island were so kind and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble!
I have never seen water and sand like it! You can snorkel in so many spots in the island and great water sports are available. Everything was well organised on arriving and departing via the sea plane. It was such an amazing experience we will never forget! X
I visited the hotel early this month with my family and we enjoyed our time there
The House ( 4 bed rooms villa ) , the facilities, the restaurants and the staff all were great
Highly recommended for the families
Special thanks for our Butler Shaba she was very helpful and take care of us
It is a happy holiday in Amilla Fushi. The Snorkeling around the island is very good with many kind of fishes and baby sharks. The dinner food is very good, however, the dinner is not cheap. The cruise is not cheap too.
