Billed as the “naughty sister” of Amilla Fushi, since opening in June 2016 Finolhu has kept Maldives party-goers entertained with a non-stop roster of DJs and live acts that put the lie to the archipelago’s reputation for rest and relaxation. When the sun’s out it’s chilled tunes and poolside lounging. At night the action swings to Finolhu’s duplex beach-club bar, kept lively by a roster of event organisers including New York’s Butter Group. Expect mermaids and stilt walkers, weekly pool and monthly full-moon parties and six annual events featuring headline performers and DJs airlifted in to rock the tropics.
