Maafushivaru Island Resort .. Maldives

 

Maafushivaru is the typical 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.

 

Live your dream at Maafushivaru

Located in the southern tip of the picturesque atoll of Ari, Maafushivaru is the embodiment of ‘no-shoes-no-news’ that the Maldives is known for. The island was refurbished in 2010, and offers you villas in three distinct styles, each combining elements of Maldivian architecture with stylish and chic finishing touches.

 

As is typical in the Maldives, the Reception, Library Lounge walkway and Water Bar are all sand floored. Going barefoot is the only way on this island.

 

Located in the same lagoon as Maafushivaru, just minutes away, is Lonubo, a stunning deserted islet, exclusively for the use of Maafushivaru guests, where you can choose to while away your days or book a romantic lobster dinner for the evening, just the two of you, on your own private island for the night.

 

Transfer to the island is by seaplane and takes 25 minutes from Male’ International Airport.

 

The island is run in collaboration with Kuoni Travel, and can be booked from any Kuoni offices in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands, or via your travel agent. For the convenience of our mutual guests, two Kuoni representatives are based permanently on the island to assist with all guest requests.

 

There are 50 individual villas in a choice of three different styles. All are well-appointed yet simple in design and build, whilst assuring complete privacy. You will find everything you need for a relaxing holiday close to nature. All villas have clear views of the turquoise blue ocean and some look onto the colourful reef. The Beach Villas and Deluxe Beach Villas each accommodate 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. The Water Villas also have space for 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child, although these are not recommended for those with very young children.
