The Maldives has a tropical climate distinguished by two seasons, or monsoons: the dry northeast monsoon which runs 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 vacation 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 also when resorts tend to be at their cheapest.
To start planning your vacation to Amilla Fushi
A fresh and contemporary resort in the Maldives, Amilla Fushi offers a luxurious 'island home' for both couples and families. The resort has so much to offer, from inventive dining options, to stylish villas and amazing snorkeling and diving.
Amilla Fushi opened at the end of 2014, bringing an exciting concept to the luxury hotel offering in the Maldives. The resort aims to be 'Your Island Home', and this is reflected in the stylish and comfortable villas and the unique dining options.
There are a range of houses to suit both couples and families, with options over-water and on the beach. The villas are very spacious, and unlike many two bedroom options you might find elsewhere, the second bedrooms are large and so also work very well for families with older children.
For those looking for a longer stay, the Residences are ideal, with a chic, fashionable home feel, large pool and fully fitted kitchen. All of the homes have a decent sized private pool and the decor is fresh with a slight nautical theme. For something more unusual, the Skyhouses, raised 12 meters off the ground up into the jungle canopy are rather spectacular!
Guests can enjoy the service of their own butler, known as a Katheeb, who will help to enhance their stay with restaurant, spa and excursion recommendations and bookings.
There is a good Kids Club, as well as a Teens Games Area, with a billiard table, juice bar and table tennis. There is also a dive center, large main pool and a range of motorized and non-motorized watersports available.
Guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to dining. Feeling Koi is the resort's take on Japanese Izakaya dining style, taking influences from Mexican and French cuisine, using the freshest local ingredients. The restaurant is elegant but relaxed and there is a roof top bar which provides a wonderful location from which to enjoy the sunset with a delicious cocktail.
The Baazaar is a fantastic dining concept with a lively and fun atmosphere. There are five restaurants in the hub, but as they are relatively small in size each offers an intimate dining experience. There are plenty of choices to suit all palettes; the Fish & Chip Shop, Joe's Pizza, the Grill and Wok, and Fresh serves a range of hot and cold options for breakfast.
The Javvu Spa is a wonderful haven where you can enjoy a divine massage or a no-booking required sauna or steam. There is also an outdoor yoga pavilion. Massages are by Pure Massage, which offers a completely customized approach for each guest using both Eastern and Western techniques.
Amilla Fushi lies within the Baa Atoll, which is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, renowned for its amazing marine life. There is a good house reef which is also home to a Blue Hole, which provides an exciting experience for both snorkeling and diving. At the heart of the Biosphere is Hanifaru Bay, only a short boat ride from Amilla Fushi. In our summer months in particular, the high concentration of plankton attracts large groups of manta rays and even whale sharks!
There are 59 Houses with a range of over-water and beach accommodation, as well as the amazing Wellness Tree Houses up in the jungle canopy. All of the rooms are very spacious and each has a good size private pool.
There are a number of two bedroom options which are the perfect choice for families, including those with older children, as the second bedrooms in the Beach Houses in particular are very spacious.
For larger groups seeking a home away from home, the 8 Beach Residences offer the ultimate in luxury with 4, 6 and 8 bedroom properties on offer.

Amilla Fushi, or 'My Island Home', is a stylish and modern take on Island living. Far from the barefoot, rustic approach of many other hotels, this offers uncompromised luxury at it's finest. Even the entry level accommodation offers a really generous amount of space, but for those wanting to splash out, the private 4 bedroom residences are incredibly impressive!
For when you want time away from your villa, Amilla Fushi has a beautiful stretch of beach, and is home to one of the longest pools in the Maldives.
This is a place that could suit anyone. The surroundings, facilities and service levels make it an ideal honeymoon destination, but there's also a great little kids club and complimentary babysitting available for families.

I was really taken with Amilla Fushi. From the minimalist, spacious, contemporary villas to the wide selection of cuisines available within the Bazaar. The direct translation of Amilla Fushi is My Island Home and its not hard to feel at home as soon as you arrive. The staff are so welcoming and there is a really relaxed and tranquil atmosphere throughout the whole resort.
Their Bodyism Wellness Retreat Center is very unique and makes Amilla the perfect destination for a full detox, where you can enjoy delicious and healthy food whilst staying fit under the guidance of a professional, right on the beach front in a bright and contemporary air conditioned gym. You can even stay in one of their tree house villas, 12 meters above the ground and have a tailored clean and lean meal plan, personal training sessions on your own private terrace within the jungle and for those really wanting to, a complete digital detox.

A home away from home and your Amilla Fushi experience starts from the moment you arrive into Male. With the island being in the Baa atoll, it is just a 30 minutes seaplane transfer but if guests prefer not to take the sea plane you have the flexibility to take a domestic flight, the airport only being 10 minutes from the island.
All the villas are incredibly spacious, stylishly designed with oversized pools, privacy and the beach villas have a wonderful stretch of beach in front before you step into the ocean. The two bedroom beach villas are incredible - can easily fit four children in the second room with a bunk bed and two twin beds. Guests can enjoy 5 pieces of complimentary laundry each day, delivered back to your island home.
Staying over water is also amazing. The villas are open plan with beautiful pools, some just a paddle away from the reef and others conveniently located near by to the restaurants (lagoon side). If you want a completely different experience stay in one of the tree houses high up in the canopy listen to the birds and feel close to nature.
The dining options are great - dine at bazaar which is home to a number of restaurants but you can dine from any the menus, in any of the restaurants. Listen to the resident DJ who plays amazing music throughout the afternoon. Lie by the longest pool in the Maldives and soak the rays or enjoy the privacy of your own island home. The fine dining restaurant Lonu is a great spot for a sundowner and the island's fine dining restaurant in the evening. If you want to be cooked within your own residence you can go shopping in the General Store and your own chef can cook you up a storm!
There is never a dull moment on island and it really does cater for all. Children can enjoy the kids club and babysitting is complimentary. Plenty of water sports to choose from, whether that is parasailing, banana boating or snorkeling. You can even take a trip to a nearby island, Soneva Fushi or the Four Seasons and enjoy lunch there, taken by private speedboat.
I absolutely loved Amilla Fushi and think it is a great option for anyone and everyone!

Amilla Fushi is totally different from the run of the mill thatched over-water and beach bungalows of the Maldives. Amilla means 'my island home' and that is their ethos, their lovely island is your home. Arriving into their delightful harbor where their over water fine dining restaurant, Lonu sits suspended over the turquoise sea, you sense touches of European chic as the fresh white of the Dive Center and over-water Ocean and Lagoon Houses meld with the emerald green of the lush coconut palms and the sparkling aquamarine of their beautiful pool. Dine on Joe's delicious pizzas, taste the sea in their incredible fish 'n chips concept restaurant, graze on the Asian delicacies of Wok or just sip your martini on the sand by the bar as the sun sets whilst you listen to the wonderful live music drift over the waves. Their magical Javvu Spa is located on the 'quiet' side of the island where waves lap up to their white sandy beach and you quietly relax into blissful island life after one of their incredible massages. Something for everyone be it diving, snorkeling off the reef, enjoying their Beach Bar, trying their myriad of destination dining venues from their cheese and wine evenings in the wine cellar to watching the sun set into a blood red sea from the Sunset Bar. Either wade into the sea at night and sit under the stars from your Beach House or simply drift off to sleep with the waves lapping against your Ocean Reef House - Amilla is fresh, new and a wonderful place to call home. They call your beach, ocean, tree or lagoon residence 'house' for a reason - you feel like you are at home but in a very magical way.

I was very excited to see Amilla Fushi as I had already heard great things despite it only having been open a few months - and I was not disappointed!
The whole resort feels really fresh and unique, from the villa design to the dining concept.
The houses are so spacious, and the private pools are a really good size, even in the entry level category (the Lagoon Houses, which also enjoy sunset views). The Tree Houses are really fun and very private.
The staff are all so friendly, and our Katheeb definitely helped to make our stay as smooth as possible, even bringing snorkeling equipment directly to our house.
I really like the Baazaar dining concept. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was really nice and laid back.
The massage I had was one of the best, if not the best I have ever experienced. The customized approach means you really feel the massage is personalized just for you.
