Luxury bepoke holidays to Amilla Fushi, Maldives

On an exclusive island fringed by the coral reefs, transparent waters, and powdery gold and white sands of the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Amilla Fushi Resort captures the luxurious, tranquil lifestyle of the Maldives. Couples and small families are well-suited to the Ocean Reef, Lagoon, Ocean Lagoon, and Beach houses. Each has an idyllically-placed private pool, steps into the sea if placed above water, and fully-furnished outdoor relaxation areas. Ocean Reef houses in particular offer sensational views and direct access to the sea from their raised position on over-water stilts. Lagoon houses capture perfect privacy, as well as panoramic soothing views across the lagoon. For views across both of these enchanting stretches of water, stay in one of the Ocean Lagoon Houses, where steps take you down into the sandy shallows. If you would prefer to be immersed in the tropical scenery of this Maldivian island, stay in a Beach House. With full-size swimming pool and outdoor dining, and the beach still only a few steps away, this is a haven for larger groups or those seeking maximum seclusion. For something truly memorable, stay in the Wellness Tree House 12 metres above the ground. This serene accommodation option immerses you in the tropical vegetation of the island, and affords you fantastic views through the trees. Large open-plan living areas are designed in the same fresh, light, and neutral style as the other rooms, with plush furnishings and soft, wooden window frames and doors. Outside, on your private terrace, is a treetop pool. Bodyism spa treatments, dining options, and fitness regimes are at your fingertips to ensure you have a truly revitalising stay. The culinary delights of Amilla Fushi are headed by Chef Luke Mangan, who brings his international acclaim and gourmet excellence to Lonu, a terraced restaurant that hovers above the sea. A sophisticated menu has been crafted out of fresh, local ingredients, and paired with exquisite wines from the island's own wine cellar. Seaplane and speedboat access is available for those looking to make the evening as spectacular as possible. Curated wine and cheese tasting events can be enjoyed at the Wine Shop & Cellar Door. At the centre of the island is the Baazaar; a collection of varied restaurants, serving everything from pizza and fish and chips, to Asian cuisine and seafood is clustered around the 1200sqm infinity pool. This is the hub of the resort, offering the gentle bubble of nightlife in the cocktail bars, the serenity of tranquil gourmet restaurants, and an enticing place to kick back during the day. An artisanal lunch can be had at the Emperor General Store and Beach Club. Select your own fresh produce, sample the deli light snacks, or choose something from the bakery, before settling down with a book in the library or unwinding in the games room. Finish off your stay at Amilla Fushi with treatments, a massage, and a dip in the Jacuzzi at the Javvu Spa, or a game of tennis on the island's own courts.

About Maldives

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Maldives is ideal for visitors looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in serene surroundings. The small republic of the Maldives is a luxury holiday destination that possesses some of the most astonishing and beautiful underwater life in the world. Consisting of over a thousand tiny coral islands, the Maldives is traditionally a fishing and trading nation which converted to Islam in the 12th century. Aware of its magnificent natural resources, in recent years the country has striven to maintain its traditional way of life and preserve the natural beauty of the islands whilst offering visitors a secluded and exclusive holiday experience. With turquoise seas, coral sand beaches, swaying palm trees and thatched huts and cottages, the Maldives represents for many the perfect picture of a typical deserted tropical island, a dream holiday destination offering peace and quiet with hotels which epitomise barefoot luxury. The Maldives hotels and island resorts we feature really are the very best. Whilst they all look idyllic, and clearly with the deluxe resorts we offer, you will receive luxurious accommodation and outstanding service, there are important distinctions that our sales team can draw your attention to: distance from Male and how you travel to the resort (speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight plus boat), the size of the island (some are very small and intimate, others are found on larger islands or connecting islands, beach or overwater villas (the overwater villas are usually, but not always, more expensive than beach villas) and the range of facilities (dining options, water sports and diving).

Highlights of the Maldives

For many, the Maldives offer some of the most fascinating underwater exploration available, from both snorkelling and diving. There are over a hundred different species of fish, from angelfish to flying fish, snapper and triggerfish, stingray and shark, as well as turtles and numerous corals of a multitude of colours. If your resort is near Malé then the capital is worth a brief visit with its mosques, traditional houses with rounded corners and tea shops with a selection of ‘short eats’ including rice pudding, curried fish cakes and small bananas.

Cultural highlights of the Maldives

Bodu beru traditional music and dance, traditional seating - the undholi (like a hammock) and the joli (a net seat hung from a wooden frame), local crafts including mats, lacquer work and jewellery, traditional dhoni boats.
