The flight in by seaplane provides glorious views of the Baa Atoll in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, recognised for its unique harmony between man and nature. At Amilla Fushi – which literally translates as ‘My Island Home’ - guests will experience a luxurious ‘homecoming’ feeling the moment they set foot on the island’s pristine white sands. Here, it’s all about maximising on space and privacy with 67 contemporary accommodations sympathetically constructed in idyllic locations. Choose from water villas overlooking the turquoise blue lagoon with spellbinding views of the ocean, beach houses surrounded by lush tropical foliage or, for those who want a completely unique experience, there is the one bedroom Wellness Tree House; tucked away amongst the island greenery, this gem is the epitome of serenity. Having featured on the Condé Nast Traveller Hot List in 2015, this family-friendly hotel offers quintessential relaxed island living complemented by high end amenities and delectable cuisine. Distinct dining experiences have been carefully curated to cater for all tastes, ranging from Asian specialities, grills and seafood at Baazaar to chic overwater dining with global wine pairings at Feeling Koi. Further delights await at the Emperor General Store with its evocative café-cum-deli and selection of fresh items that your butler will be pleased to cook up into something special in your island home. There are dive butlers, too, along with unlimited non-motorised watersports and the opportunity to experience therapies in the beguiling Javvu Spa. Set in a lush secret garden shaded by Banyan trees, ten wooden treatment pods, a yoga pavilion and a fitness centre offer a mix of wellness, movement and spa treatments to encourage tailor made holistic approaches to revive both body and mind.
Experience freedom as you cruise through the UNESCO Biosphere of Baa Atoll on your own private chartered yacht. Choose between the luxuriously appointed and traditionally hand-crafted 20m Maldivian dhoni, named Sloop John B, or the state of the art luxury 13m cruiser Vismara. For an even more unforgettable expedition, request access to Amilla Fushi's exclusive collection of motor cruisers, yachts and superyachts. Conclude your time at sea by docking into the three-berth marina and taking a speedboat transfer to Feeling Koi - the overwater signature restaurant.
Amilla Fushi’s two floodlit tennis courts are perfect for an action packed match with friends or family. If you really want to enhance your skills you can also book a private lesson with Jim Courier Tennis Pro, an expert tennis player that will make a difference in your tennis game.

The Maldives has a hot, tropical climate with sunshine all year round. The most popular months to visit are between November and April during the north-east monsoon when it is dry with very little wind. Whilst there may be rain during some of the summer months, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, this is becoming an increasingly popular time to travel.
