An award-winning retreat of Per AQUUM Retreats • Resorts • Residences, Huvafen Fushi is where the Maldives gets a little bit funky. It’s where you come for cutting-edge design and the world’s first underwater spa, yet it’s also delightfully chilled-out with plenty of thatch and timber balancing out the modern furnishings and fibre-optic lighting effects.
The retreat stands in the North Malé Atoll, its ‘naturally modern’ bungalows ranked amongst the largest rooms in the Maldives and set either on the sands or over the water. They fuse contemporary lines with traditional charm, all of them boasting their own plunge or ‘infinity’ pools, as well as modern comforts like plasma TVs and iPods loaded with 12,000 songs. Go for a split-level Lagoon Bungalow if you want mesmeric views or a slightly larger Ocean Bungalow if you’re big on privacy. A further 100-metres out in the water wait the Ocean Pavilions which come with Thakuru (Butler) happy to do your bidding 24-hours a day.
Fresh produce is flown in daily, the master chef creating eclectic dishes served in a variety of venues ranging from beachside to over-water. Enjoy the seafood dishes of Salt, innovative 100% raw cuisine at Raw or international favourites of luxe-but-laid-back Celsius before treating yourself to a designer cocktail at UMBar on the water’s edge.
Leisure facilities tend to focus upon relaxation, the non-motorised water sports, yoga pavilion and salt water flotation pool complemented by a gym and PADI dive school. Totally irresistible, however, are the rejuvenating applications of LIME Spa, an holistic haven with over-water and underwater treatment rooms. Pure bliss!
