The island—located in Lhaviyani Atoll—is uniquely positioned between two channels connecting the atoll’s inner lagoon to the vast Indian Ocean. The bigger of the two channels, Fushifaru Kan’du is a national Marine Protected Area teeming with marine life and is home to three iconic dive sites including the renowned Fushifaru Thila, one of the Maldives most popular dive spots.
Merging quintessential Maldivian design with modern aesthetics, adventurists, conservationists and traditionalists will be spoilt for choice with the resort’s incredible overwater and underwater experiences, according to Fushifaru Maldives.

Fanihandhi Bar is perfect for catching some sun with a cocktail in hand or unwinding to a famous Maldivian sunset. Guests can also choose from a variety of dining experiences such as a private sandbank picnic, dinner on the deck of your own villa or even aboard the resort’s private yacht.The Heylhi Spa in Fushifaru Maldives will have five-treatment rooms.
