Re-sculptured by The Small Maldives Island Company
Baa Atoll: Sophisticated Maldives dreamscape Huvafen Fushi embarks on a journey of rediscovery.
Opened over a decade ago, Huvafen Fushi built a deserved reputation amongst dynamic connoisseurs, seduced by the sensuous embrace and creativity of this charming island rendezvous. The ‘seductive allure’ of Huvafen Fushi, a fashionable global icon that carries perennial stature, always fluid and forever pushing boundaries is recaptured.
Countless other luxury brands followed, yet the island retained its place as one of the leading lights in the luxury resort landscape. Now, as it looks to the future, Huvafen Fushi is once again embracing many of the team who were instrumental in weaving its hypnotic magic all those years ago.
The eclectic vision for Huvafen Fushi has evolved into a culture with four distinctive traits: ‘Fearless Imagination’, ‘Seductive Embrace’, ‘Passionately Discreet’ and ‘Dynamic Connoisseur’. Indeed, Huvafen Fushi is re-sculpted as both discreet yet vibrant, fashionable but secretive. Defining a bold yet sensuous and alluring sophisticated vision it became clear that the resort would be the ideal escape couples seeking intimate time together.
The allure begins before couples step foot on the island… the arrival can be made exclusively exceptional by a 30 minutes transfer to the island on a newly acquired 45’ air conditioned speed boat that caricatures a private jet. Plush interiors, comfortable seating and attentive staff guarantee the short transfer is nothing less than breath-taking. The existing fleet of speedboats is also being refurbished, with every detail and need considered. Even on this short journey to the enchanting seductress that is Huvafen Fushi there is a WiFi.
A perfect night’s sleep in enrapturing and chic accommodation is for every guest to relish at Huvafen Fushi. Although fully refurbished in 2012, new elegant levels of style have been reached with refreshed interior designs, enhanced by Bottega Veneta, creators of exquisite bathroom amenities.
Ocean and Lagoon Pool Bungalows are refreshed to maintain the integrity of the Villas, yet emanate the new sensual allure of the resort.
Culinary experiences, designed with passion are one of the essences of Huvafen Fushi’s sensory awakening. In breathtaking locations, refreshed and creative venues mean an abundance of choices and ambience.
Beginning the gastronomic discovery at UMBAR, cocktails are designed with imagination and precision. By the pool, guests enjoy freshly made drinks originally crafted by mixologists from PURL in London. Before and after dinner, chill to cool jazz and R&B, complemented with a youthful or dignified whisky or liqueur and fine cigar or novel shisha.
Located close by is a true haven for connoisseurs of fine wines: VINUM. A cellar eight meters below the ground it is an inimitable place to dine, truly magnificent yet somewhat secretive, with its collection of 7,000 bottles of perhaps the highest quality wines in South East Asia tempt the palate. Italian inspired cuisine from our alfresco restaurant FORNO satisfies the most discriminating of diners. As well as hosting the tables in the underground setting there is the Chef’s Counter and an opportunity to enjoy outdoor Mediterranean dining under shady palm trees or at UMBAR.
CELSIUS is the place to have a relaxing a la carte breakfast, select for the health conscious and the slightly more naughty options. In the evening dinner on the deck features South East Asian and European dishes.
Newest to Huvafen Fushi is FEELING KOI. Inspired by Mark Hehir, and born at Amilla Fushi this restaurant is best described as Modern Japanese with a flirtatious Latin twist. In a stunning overwater setting it is sure to be an exceptional and talked about addition to Huvafen.
The world’s first underwater spa, HUVAFEN SPA, created at the inception of the resort, has been re-sculptured to provide guests with indulgent rituals, all the time surrounded by the abundant tropical fish and marine, dancing over the clusters of coral.
Pampering continues with PURE Massage by Beata Aleksandrowicz, who brings her celebrated techniques, combining perfectly Eastern and Western massage traditions. The seductive journey continues with Teresa Tarmey, renowned facialist to the Stars, who brings from London and Switzerland her exclusive world class treatments, including signature “T T Facial” and best treatments for skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing. Atop the underwater HUVAFEN SPA, RAW features carefully crafted offerings that enhance the spa time. Fresh tropical juice mixes, snacks and small plates are healthy and nutritious to fuel a wholesome life … but sometimes topped off with a refreshing glass of bubbly or sparkles.
With fresh direction, and passion revived, Huvafen Fushi is now forging fearlessly ahead to a tantalising independent future. Bold, sensuous and sophisticated. Discreet and dreamlike; a whispered legend.
