A long-time Maldives favourite, and for good reason; Huvafen Fushi does island escapology well. So much so that it is consistently voted one of the best island paradises in the world, mostly due to its ridiculously beautiful beaches and delectable dining options. Recently re-branded as an adults-only hotspot, it is a barefoot paradise set within its own lagoon, sensitively developed to sustain the island’s unique ecosystems. Accommodation at Huvafen Fushi, Maldives is provided in enchanting contemporary bungalows and pavilions, all air-conditioned, with seven foot square beds, Frette linen and their own private oasis with a freshwater pool. Step directly from your deck onto the sand, or choose an Ocean or Lagoon Bungalow for the luxury of slipping straight into the crystal water. There is luxe-but-laidback dining at Celsius with its white sand floored deck and Feeling Koi for the ultimate overwater seafood culinary experience, accompanied by sommelier chosen wines. In the Huvafen Spa the world’s first underwater treatment rooms are the setting for deeply reviving therapies. A dedicated ‘Thakuru’ butler is on hand to ensure no wish goes unfulfilled. Sporting and relaxation opportunities abound. Swim in the fibreoptic lit infinity pool or relax in the Lonu Veyo outdoor salt water floatation pool, enjoy watersports and PADI-certified scuba diving, join a sunset fishing trip or simply snorkel around the sandbanks. Expeditions with the resident marine biologist are also available.

Across the Indian Ocean, Huvafen Fushi is renowned for blazing a trail when it comes to architecture and design. Not least in Huvafen Spa - the setting for the world's first underwater treatment space - where the signature rooms provide a uniquely surreal setting for treatments. The James Bond-esque Ocean Pavilions look out to miles of cerulean waters and boast a fibre-optic lit infinity pool, blending seamlessly with the horizon; but the pièce de résistance is the infinity edge Kohler bath that fills from the ceiling. Contemporary design at its most alluring.
Renowned skincare expert, Teresa Tarmey, has unveiled a residency at the re-launched adults only resort Huvafen Fushi, home of the world’s only underwater spa. From December 2017, guests will be able to experience Teresa Tarmey’s celebrated Signature Facial in the opulent Huvafen Spa treatment rooms situated in the lagoon, eight metres deep in the Indian Ocean. Guests can also experience the rejuvenating power of Teresa’s own hands during one of her periodic visits to the island – the first of which is confirmed for 29 March – 5 April 2018.
Enjoy relaxed dining with your feet in the sand at Celsius, or fresh seafood over the water at Feeling Koi. Italian comfort food is found in the form of wood-fired pizzas at Forno, and Vinu - a subterranean wine cellar - is popular with oenophiles. For a more relaxed dining vibe, UMBar’s handcrafted cocktails and savoury snacks are served up while you lounge on the oversized cushions on the white-sand beach.
Spot whale sharks, create new coral colonies and accompany the marine biologist on a Manta ID trip where you will learn how to identify these creatures by their bellies, that act as fingerprints. Find a manta that hasn't been ID'd and you can name it.
The Maldives has a hot, tropical climate with sunshine all year round. The most popular months to visit are between November and April during the north-east monsoon when it is dry with very little wind. Whilst there may be rain during some of the summer months, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, this is becoming an increasingly popular time to travel.
