Faarufushi Maldives - Luxury Hotel in the Maldives
Understated style meets over-and-above service at this contemporary Maldives island retreat
From the over-water villas to the endless horizons, Faarufushi Maldives has all the essential ingredients of a private island escape. This is somewhere for those who seek a stripped-back take on luxury. Where every element feels carefully interwoven with its surroundings, and lets the natural beauty of the Raa Atoll shine through. After all, it’s the island that’s the star – and this resort gives you front-row seats to enjoy the show.
Whether you’re staying beach-side or over the lagoon, your personal piece of Faarufushi Maldives is light and contemporary. Natural timber and floor-to-ceiling windows create a restful space that feels open, yet private. When you’ve settled in, search out the delights dotted around Faarufushi. Dip into the infinity pool. Find your way to Nika Spa, with its treatment cabins tucked away among the palm trees. Then wander out to Eclipse, to dine on modern European cuisine over the water.
When you’re ready to take the action up a notch, make for Athiri. This fitness, food and watersports centre is the place to set off on paddleboarding, deep sea fishing and guided snorkelling adventures. Or, just beyond the lagoon you’ll find Lonu PADI dive centre, ready to unveil a whole new underwater world. At Faarafushi Maldives, there’s always more to discover beneath the surface.

There are three different restaurants and bars at Faarufushi Maldives. And at each one, the views are as delicious as the food. Close to the main pool area you’ll find Iru restaurant and Sangu bar, for alfresco dining under the coconut palms. Beachside Athiri is made for laid-back lunches after a morning out on (or under) the water – serving up everything from pizzas and bagels to Tapas and Teppanyaki. Over the lagoon lies Eclipse, for modern European cuisine with an Asian twist. Then put nothing between you and the horizon with cocktails at Boli, which has private, ocean-facing booths.
Meals served: Lunch, Dinner
This casual beachside gathering place brings several island facilities together at the water edge- including a water sport facility and a gym overlooking the beach and ocean. Exclusive but laidback. Athiri has everything you need to work out- chill out and snack out in between.
Meals served: Dinner
Facing Faarufushi languid lagoon. Crescent-shaped- overwater. The perfect follow-on to a sundowner at Boli. Eclipse serves modern European cuisine with an Asian twist. Fine ingredients- fresh produce- memorable overwater dining.
At the furthest tip of Eclipse. This overwater bar welcomes free spirits with discerning cocktails and hand-picked wines that taste like summer.
Meals served: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Alfresco dining under wide Maldivian skies. Coconut palms for shade. Iru features a boundless buffet- supported by indulgent a la carte options. Drink in that horizon while you are at it.
Meals served: Lunch
Endless sea views natural decking and a prime location next to the pool. Toes in the water and eyes on the horizon. Settle in for some deep relaxation inspired by chill-out mixes. Sangu is next-door to Iru so pre-dinner drinks make perfect sense.
Follow a path among the towering palms and tangled greenery of the island’s heart, and you’ll come to Nika Spa. Set around a tranquil water garden, this is somewhere to utterly unwind. With relaxation areas, plunge pools, saunas and private treatment cabins, you could easily spend a day or two here. Back down on the Faarufushi shore, Nika Spa also runs a yoga pavilion. Greet the sunrise with open-air practice – either alone, in a group or guided by a yogi.
