Tout savoir sur l'expérience
This idyllic private island resort encourages one to escape to a simpler, more relaxed way of life, where palm trees are scattered along the tranquil beach, and the scent of dewy coconut floats through the air. Welcome to Huvafen Fushi, a chic nomadic retreat set on the island of the same name, in the Kaafu atoll of the Maldives, where appreciation for the state of bliss reigns.
Visitors will exult – even hibernate – in the palatial bungalows set aside the immaculate beach or atop the lagoon’s limpid turquoise waters. A wide range of accommodations suits travellers of every style. And when it comes to dining, the choice is equally varied. The lavish breakfast buffet is a dream come true, and we resolutely recommend the coconut crêpes; two above-water havens offer delightful health food or fresh-caught local seafood; and a laid back, beach side resto bar serves Mediterranean comfort food while you relax under a canopy of palms.
Did you say, diving? It wouldn’t be the Maldives without this virtually national pastime, and a number of nearby dive sites will tickle the fancy of adventure-seeking aficionados. Amateurs, too, equipped with masks and fins, will marvel at the multicolour house reef, brimming with innumerable species, just off the shores of Huvafen Fushi. There are kayaks and paddle boards, or you can take a cruise on a yacht, a speedboat, or better yet, a traditional Maldivian dhoni. After hours, Lime Spa will tempt you with its avant-garde treatments, performed in an underwater sanctuary that will leave you hypnotised.
It is easy to become accustomed to the salty, balmy air and verdant, leafy jungle that makes Huvafen Fushi a true tropical paradise – one that you will have difficulty leaving.
