« Upon my arrival at Constance Moofushi, my first reflex is switching to a Robinson mode by taking off my shoes and diving in the blue lagoon surrounding the hotel. The change of scenery is guaranteed! » - Patrice, Islandian Expert
The Constance Moofushi, an all-inclusive beach hotel, encapsulates a Maldivian dream. The moment you step off the hydroplane, a sign instructs: “No shoes beyond this point”. There’s a good chance you will remain barefoot for the duration of your stay, save for neon-coloured flippers, given to each guest along with mask and tube – the resort boasts one of South Ari Atoll’s best coral reefs. As far as the eye can see, the blue expanse stretches unending. Beneath the surface, a dizzying variety of exotic, multicolour sea creatures swims about, while rays, sea turtles and baby sharks drift by. From the deck of your over-water villa, descend into the vast swimming pool that surrounds you. The real swimming pool abounding with sun beds, can be found not far from the hip Totem Bar.
Embellished in rustic style, the Water and Beach Villas come with all the amenities you could possibly need on a desert island, including a fully-stocked mini bar. Manta, the main restaurant, is sand-floored, and invites you to dine barefoot – Beware, This is Paradise! In spite of the apparent simplicity of the setting, you will still find one of the Maldives’ finest wine lists for the Constance hotels pride themselves on their exquisite cellars – Moofushi is no exception.
Here, motorised boats are not allowed, which affords the luxury of setting sail in full tranquillity. At sunset, embark on a cruise in a traditional wood dhoni before dining on the beach to the sound of waves unfurling gently on the sand.
You will rapidly grow accustomed to the feeling of sand between your toes, the salty air, the lukewarm sea – which, even after dark, remains calm and inviting under the moonlit sky. Moofushi is one of those earthly paradises you will never want to leave.
