Overview

A desert island dream of plunge pool bungalows with an underwater spa, big name DJs and a reef teeming with fish

The Look

Barefoot luxe. Since its launch in 2004 (and 2012 refresh), PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi has consistently remained in the top strata of Indian Ocean honeypots. International A-listers from Kate Moss to George Clooney have visited the island, in the North Malé Atoll, for its reinterpretation of Maldivian architecture — think sweeping thatch roofs, open-plan lounges with glowy tables — and its effortless, laid-back cool.

Bed and Bath

Starting at 1,345 square feet, the 43 bungalows sitting on the beach and on stilts above the water are self-contained hideaways with private gardens, plunge pools, outdoor showers and a full suite of high-tech gizmos (including iPods with music selected by resident DJs). The muted color scheme of oatmeal, cream and honey woods keeps the focus on the lagoon views.

Beyond

Huvafen has some of the country’s best food, including the superb natural preparations of Asian fare at Raw and the gourmet seafood at Salt, lubricated by an extraordinary range of wines from the Vinum’s underground cave. International DJs spin, sometimes with such artists as French graffiti master Lyès-Olivier Sidhoum creating work on the spot. Things are more chill under the water, thanks to the sub-aqua spa, where you can get treatments as reef fish and manta rays glide overhead. The hotel pioneered the use of resident marine biologists, so you can be sure of the reef’s health (and you can help out by adopting coral).

a true dream island
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Me and my husband escaped for a few days on this dream island after dealing with all our wedding. Our short honeymoon was so well taken care of. Our thakuru Chainy took such a good care of us and even brought me medicines after spending too much time in the sun on our sandbank trip. The staff is so attentive and genuine and makes every interaction so unique. Jyoti is a gem, she always took such a good care of us, and even when we were not staying in her area, she always came and talked with us.
The resort is so beautiful, adults 16+ only, and gives you the privacy that you need. You have so many activities to do there that you cannot get bored: snorkeling, stingray feeding, beach and water activities. We stayed at a ocean bungalow and the snorkeling was so diverse just a few meters from our villa.
The food on the island is so delicious! And loved the idea of an a la carte breakfast. You can chose what you want and at the same time there is not so much wasted food like at a buffet. And having those chefs specials changing everyday brings a diversity to the menu.
There are sooo many more things to say! We had a blast here. Thank you JC for your welcoming and it was a pleasure meeting you! Hope to see you again soon!

relaxation and luxury at it's finest.

Everything about HuvafenFushi is amazing. Breathtaking views. Great Snorkeling. Rich vegetation. Professional, friendly and attentive staff.
Watching marine biologist feed and interact with stingrays at stingray beach is a magical experience, followed by a stunning view of sunset.
The food and beverage team of huvafenfushi just takes it to another level. Every meal is to die for. Just when we thought the food can't get any better, we were spoiled by Feeling Koi. If you ever visit huvafenfushi, never miss the Feeling Koi experience. Jameel and his team are most definitely master chefs... and thnx afey ;) !!. oh, and I should have finished the Juice in the room!! damn, that was good!!
Words and pictures can not do justice to this amazing resort. Just book it and experience Maldives at it's finest in HuvafenFushi.

Completely exceeded our expectations. Unbelievable resort- do not have enough good things to say. A very quite and small island (adults only), and very exclusive. The Ocean View over-water bungalow was a dream. Let's not forget it's only a speedboat away from Male airport which is great since some seaplanes do not make the flights because of weather etc.

Don't miss the 6:30pm sting ray feeding every night!

The wine selection was incredible as was the dining in general. We got the half-board with the breakfast and dinner included which I would recommend.

The dive center was excellent. We had amazing diving (sharks, sting rays, huge schools of fish, Napolean Fish) and the entire experience (boat, equipment) was top notch and the best we have seen. Even the boat ride to and from the dive site was stunning!

We were lucky enough to come upon schools of dolphins and our instructor allowed us to jump in and snorkel with them. It was a once in a lifetime experience! Thank you Sam & Renaud!

Dinner on the beach the last night was the perfect send off and beautiful setting that was set up just for us!

My husband and I will DEFINITELY be back. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Very good

We stayed here for 10 nights in May and booked a sunset ocean villa . Unfortunately the weather was unusually unkind to us which restricted the advantages of the over water bungalow and even stopped us snorkelling. The snorkelling we did manage was good with plenty of fish to see just off our villa.Having travelled to the Maldives several times over the years we were not disappointed with the Maldivian welcome and service...the staff were lovely and to name but a few ..Jyoti, Ki,Hambey, Feeling Koi Sam(!), Roger, Manos......we can’t thank you enough .
The breakfasts in Celsius were special - the a la carte in the evening was for us good but not great . We understand however the menu is currently being reviewed so we would welcome that as a positive change . Totally amazing however and the Jewel in the Crown of our whole holiday was Feeling Koi. Chef Jameel ( it’s all about the sauce !) you are incredible - your food,attention to detail, and your very personal and attentive interest in us as guests was truly special.The setting and overall ambiance of the restaurant is first class and we had no qualms at all of having to pay a supplement to enjoy your very special food....and of course the very personal Teppanyaki experience is one we shall always remember.
As others have said , it is expensive here and whilst we were aware of this we would have expected more attention to finer detail - for example , canapés with your evening drinks rather than just a bowl of cashews every time ,varied fruit platter in your room rather than 3 apples , hot/ cold towels in Celsius.....nothing major , but such touches would have made a big difference.
Overall a lovely island with lovely staff...and apart from Feeling Koi , we would recommend you need to enhance the overall experience with detail in order to warrant the additional cost of staying here.
