Maafushivaru, Maldives

Maafushivaru, Maldives

An experience uniquely Maldives ...
Maafushivaru is an idyllic island epitomizing all that one dreams of when thinking of the Maldives. With its small island charm, lush vegetation surrounded by powder-white soft sand, and a house reef that a myriad of tropical fish call home, the island is just over 500 metres in length and can be walked in just 10 minutes and a bit! Thatch-roofed villas inspired by local architecture are set amidst verdant gardens or are poised over the turquoise lagoon. Deceivingly modest exteriors hide worldly comforts and indulgences and all villas offer direct access to the beach or to the sea. Designed for couples seeking to rekindle their romance or for families looking to spend quality time together, Maafushivaru offers an experience that elegantly combines a Maldives from times-gone-by with the contemporary luxuries of the present. At Maafushivaru, let us help you make memories that will be forever cherished

A Retreat Of Your Own

Sited in the next lagoon, just a few minutes away, is Lonubo, a stunning deserted islet where you can choose to while away your days. A visit to this beautiful island is a must! Guests can choose from daily visits for basking in the sun and snorkel the beautiful reef, or book and enjoy an overnight stay on an island just for you and your beloved. Several times a week, set inside a ‘Dhoni’ or a Maldivian boat, you can enjoy tropical cocktails with fiery sunsets in the backdrop, and continue on to dinner with a menu that features our best grills.

Maafushivaru Spa… the truly natural well-being experience. Situated on a quiet corner of the island on its own jetty, the spa is the place where we blend inner beauty with the beauty of the landscape. Each treatment we offer at our spa resort in Maldives is individually designed to help you realise your ultimate state of well-being. The Maafushivaru Spa is set on the water with a unique and privileged view to the lagoon.
