Having recently undergone a renovation project, Huvafen Fushi has revealed a general refurbishment of all bungalows and pavilions with new interior finishes and a fresh look, a new outdoor lounge area over the reef at Raw for sunset cocktails, a remodelled Celsius and a deliciously creative evolution of the restaurant menus. Already an award winning retreat renowned for its trailblazing concepts, these new touches reaffirm the retreat’s status as a leader in premium luxury and creative hospitality.

Huvafen Fushi is situated on the North Male Atoll, only a 30-minute luxury speedboat ride from the airport. Set within its own lagoon, Huvafen Fushi is a naturalist’s wonderland where the landscapes above and below the waterline are breathtakingly untouched. The 44 contemporary bungalows and pavilions come with plasma TVs, and each has its own plunge pool with private sunbathing deck. Some of the bungalows sit on the beach front, and others are above the tropical waters of the lagoon. There are four restaurants, a stunning infinity pool and the world’s first underwater glass treatment rooms in the LIME Spa.

There is a variety of wonderful dive adventures to be had during a stay at Huvafen Fushi, from seeing mantas and whale sharks (during season) to eagle rays, grey reef sharks and, of course, swirling schools of fish. The best dive sites of the North Malé Atoll are in Rasfari, where a large sloping wall that falls from 10 metres below the sea to 25, and levels out before dropping down 90 metres. Follow the sloping wall some 30 metres down to the reef and marvel at circling gray reef sharks, silver tip and white tip reef sharks, while a large family of eagle rays dances in the current. Completing this magnificent show of underwater magic are some giant barracudas, tunas and napoleon wrasses, as well as shoals of fusiliers, blue-striped snappers and surgeonfish.

In shallower waters, snorkellers can swim amongst butterfly fish, angel fish, parrot fish, rock cod, unicorn fish, trumpet fish, bluestripe snapper, oriental sweetlips and more.

When to travel

The Maldives has a tropical climate distinguished by two seasons, or monsoons: the dry northeast monsoon from December to March, and the wet southwestern monsoon from May to November, with more strong winds and rain. April is a transitional period noted for clear water and heat. The temperature remains remarkably consistent at around 30°C.

February to April is the hottest period and resorts are almost all operating at capacity during this period. Mid-December to early January comes at even more of a premium due to Christmas and New Year and prices are even higher. Easter and the Italian holiday week in August also attract peak prices at most resorts.

Storms are more likely from May to November, though it’s still warm, skies can be cloudy and the humidity is higher. This is the low season, with fewer people and lower prices, with the exception of August.

Diving is good year-round, although a basic rule is that life on the reef is more varied and visibility better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and from the eastern side of any atoll December to April.

The surfing season runs from March to October, which is when resorts are cheapest.
