Huvafen Fushi Maldives



Desert island dreams are made at Huvafen, where the team bend over backwards to make sure you experience your version of luxury. Private plunge pools, wonderful diving opportunities, spa treatments as you gaze into the underwater world, spontaneous private dinners: every day at Huvafen means more treasured memories..





A mid-size resort with a big reputation, Huvafen Fushi is perhaps best known for its underwater spa and musical credentials, having hosted numerous international DJs since its inception. Luxury and pampering are on tap, and there is an emphasis on bespoke experiences and personal service - mainly thanks to your dedicated host, or 'Thakaru', who will be on speed-dial and ready to organise excursions, private dinners or anything else your heart desires. The rooms themselves have plunge pools, private decks and nice touches such as pervasive Bose speakers - indoors and out - and mood lighting; while elsewhere the island provides all you need for a holiday that lives up to your paradise escape expectations. 



There is a choice of 44 Bungalows and Pavilions with one or two bedrooms located on the beach or over the water. All have a private plunge pools, while Ocean Bungalows feature mesmerising glass floors in the living room. The warmth of the design at Huvafen is well-known, and all of the accommodation is contemporary and bright. For families and groups of friends we would recommend CUBE, a two story property located in a lush, oceanfront garden enclave with direct access to the beach. Huvafen also offers an added perk: the opportunity to book one of the resort's three luxurious dhonis, allowing you to explore the coral reef at your leisure and even spend a romantic night or two on board.


Personalised luxury, music and maritime adventure. 


The resort provides cots free of charge and can also provide extra beds for a small fee. Families should choose one of the pavilions, which can comfortably accommodate two adults and two children under the age of 12. Family fun is not one of Huvafen's primary focuses, and there is no children's club, so we feel Huvafen is better suited to couples or families with older children.  


Romantic Huvafen makes a beautiful setting for a romantic occasion, though services are ceremonial rather than legally binding. You can choose to say your vows on the beach, over the water or even under the water should you wish. Honeymooners will love the sense of peace and privacy that each of the private pool villas provides, as well as numerous opportunities for personalised experiences - from staying overnight on a dhoni to private chef's table dinners and swimming right off your over-water deck.

Luxury maldives holidays - huvafen fushi spa treatment

Calendar_Maldives_Holidays.jpgWHEN SHOULD I GO?

  • Good weather year round
  • Dry, warm weather is more common between the months of December and April
  • May and September are transition months, typically with more unsettled weather 
  • April is traditionally the hottest month; February is the driest 
  • Global warming has affected the weather, meaning that the shoulder season (June to November) often has better weather than peak season 

Insider Viewpoint

Huvafen is understandably popular. It is super cool, with a buzzy and convivial atmosphere that makes you feel at ease and various chilled out lounge areas and hideaway restaurants. I particularly liked Cardamom Lounge - dug out of the sand with plush Indian cushions laid out to sit on. While the underwater spa is appealing, I tend to recommend the over-water treatment rooms instead, as there is no surcharge and the view out to sea is equally stunning.  Make sure you witness the daily Manta feeding on Manta Beach - an incredible experience.

Island cool with lashings of luxury.
