Few places on Earth look like they could only exist in our dreams, but although the sparkling turquoise waters, emerald green islands and overwater villas of the Maldives seem too good to be true, beach lovers seeking indulgent luxury can make their dreams a reality with Luxury Escapes’ most popular Maldives resort.
Located by a 1.8km sandbank that stretches across the Indian Ocean in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Baa Atoll chain of islands, Finolhu is a glamorous private island playground that needs no Instagram filter. This tropical wonderland looks perfectly airbrushed with its white-sand beaches, turquoise waters and sparkling coral-filled lagoon that provide the perfect backdrop for Finolhu’s ultra-stylish eateries and Ibiza-style beach club.
After a long day chilling out on the beach and sipping cocktails, guests can relax in one of the resort’s stylish overwater Lagoon Villas that offer private direct access into the glistening ocean. Featuring 145 sqm of bohemian-inspired space and unique furnishings including a ‘Press for champagne’ button on the retro telephone, sparkling crystal chandeliers, outdoor showers and funky cane seating, Lagoon Villas are the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the breathtaking views of Finolhu lagoon from the villa’s private outdoor sundeck or ocean view bathtub.
It’s all about chic dining and indulgent cuisine at Finolhu. The island is home to five unique eateries, including the uber-cool Baa Baa Beach Diner at 1 OAK Beach Club where guests can enjoy a gastronomic experience in a beach setting that features live cooking stations, monthly Full Moon Tribal parties and chilled tunes. The resort also features the Fish & Crab Shack, located at the halfway point of the sandbank and serving lip-smacking prawns and other fresh seafood. There’s also Asian cuisine at Kanusan, North African delights at Baahaa Grill and light snacks at the old-school tuckshop-style Milk Bar.
Most guests travelling to the Maldives travel via Singapore before a short four-hour flight to the Maldives’ capital city of Malé where guests visiting the resort will continue on by seaplane with a 30-minute scenic flight over the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
