Endowed with a trio of fresh accolades that speak of a reputation for luxury, originality and exceptional service, Maldives icon Huvafen Fushi is delighted to announce its reopening to guests from 1 November 2020.

The reopening will coincide with the launch of a brand-new website, reflecting the resort’s continued evolution and rediscovery of the inimitable characteristics that made it the Maldives’ original private island idyll. Resuming its place in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World pantheon, Huvafen’s renowned standards of service and extraordinary, ethereal guest experiences have also received major award recognitions in TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Award 2020 and Organic Spa magazine’s Wellness Travel Awards.

Just 30 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport, Huvafen Fushi exists in a dreamlike bubble; beyond the banal intrusions of flight or boat paths, wreathed only by horizon. A sanctuary of iconic design and natural beauty, the resort’s 44 enrapturing, naturally modern villas – each with a private deck and freshwater infinity pool – are enhanced by the signature Thakuru butler service first pioneered by Huvafen Fushi over 15 years ago. An array of unique culinary experiences are infused with the resort’s customary serenity, from subterranean gastronomic adventures curated by renowned consultant sommelier Guillem Kerambrun at Vinum, the Indian Ocean’s only underground wine cellar; to laid-back Izakaya-style dining at Huvafen’s unmistakable overwater restaurant, now returned to its birth name, Salt.
