Amilla Fushi featured in Carrier Magazine ‘Making waves on the Baa Atoll’ article
Exploring the vast warm waters surrounding Amilla Fushi affords you the opportunity to get up close and personal with mesmerizing marine life – you can spy turtles and manta rays amidst the coral formations of the Baa Atoll in a UNESCO protected biosphere.
Say goodbye to glass-bottomed boat tours and hello to an immersive underwater world experience. Resident marine biologist Lauren Arthur, who is known for wearing a mermaid tail on guided snorkelling tours, leads trips to the world renowned Hanifaru Bay and the Blue Hole – the latter, a natural submerged wonder which is an absolute must-visit. Spend an unforgettable night floating on the moon-lit ocean; keen sailors can charter Lady Thuraya, the hotel’s private yacht to get a taste of the beauty of the Maldives above the water. Aquatic and marine ‘Heroes’ are also regularly invited to offer their expertise in a variety of fields from free diving to watersports, photography to conservation.
This, alongside Miami-style beach huts and a youthful vibe, is what enables Amilla Fushi to stand-out as something rather unique in the Maldives. By night, savour modern Japanese cuisine at Feeling Koi – it is overwater of course and for
those who like to make an entrance you can seamlessly drift in by speedboat – and after, your personal katheeb (butler) drops you off at your overwater home.
