An unforgettable tropical escape at a minimalist-chic Indian Ocean retreat, staying in a luxurious villa
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.
