Although the Maldives is a favorite destination for newlyweds and all tourists seeking a magical and serene place for a vacation, this idyllic archipelago could disappear one day as a result of rising ocean water due to global warming. The time to act is now. Local authorities have been aware of the problem for a long time and impose very precise conditions on the hotel builders in the archipelago. This is why most tourists are fascinated by the fact that the natural landscape has been respected, and that the hotels on the vast majority of the islands are in perfect harmony with their environment. This philosophy, embedded in the minds of the local inhabitants, enables visitors to spend a vacation in the heart of sites where the flora and fauna are protected. To discover all the treasures of this archipelago, hotels propose numerous excursions to the virgin forest, cruises between islands on dhonis, the traditional local fishing boats, or days devoted to deep sea diving in the company of specialists, in order to unravel the mysteries of the coral reefs and the occupants of the Indian Ocean.
The Huvafen Fushi is a five star hotel which rests engraved in the memories of those who have stayed here. It corresponds perfectly to our maddest dreams of escaping to the tropics. The 43 bungalows and houses rival each other for their charm and especially their luxury. Built on stilts directly on the beach, they each have private swimming pool. On the outside, the residences are typically tropical with thatched roofs, whereas the interiors have a very design décor. Some bungalows have a transparent floor which allows its inhabitants to observe the underwater world below. The Cube, with its large gate is isolated from the rest of the hotel, and the two Ocean pavilions are the jewels of the hotel, thanks to their important high tech equipment, private access to the beach, a discreet, helpful butler available round the clock and everything else necessary to make you feel like a very special, exceptional guest. Another luxury in this five star establishment, its spa, is unique in the world and equipped with an underwater massage room. You can therefore take advantage of the highest quality treatments in a fantastic setting, face to face with passing manta rays and trumpet fish. For those who prefer to remain in their comfortable cocoon, room service is available. Other guests can choose among several restaurants which serve both local and Mediterranean dishes. Not to be overlooked is the Vinum, the hotel’s wine cellar under the sand, which invites you to try its incredible selection of fine wines to accompany your meal or to attend a food and wine tasting session.
“If you choose the Maldives, you must have a strong desire to be stranded on a desert island. You want the tiny islands of white sand to be yours alone, as well as the maître d’hôtel who serves your punch as you dip your feet into the water. Let’s be clear about his. The Huvafen Fushi will not disappoint you. Stick your toes into the temperate water of the lagoon, dine in incredible settings, and just when you think that nothing could possibly be better, you come across the first underwater spa in the world.” – Harper’s Bazaar travel guide
