Medhufushi Island Resort

A tranquil, candid Maldivian resort ideal for honeymooners and couples.

Medhufushi Island Resort is an unobtrusive, tranquil and genuine Maldivian resort established on the unspoilt Meemu Atoll just 40 minutes seaplane journey from Male international airport. Only a small island the feeling of privacy and space pervades, the resort is popular with honeymooners and those seeking a quiet location there is however plenty of activities to indulge in including many water sports, sea excursions and the spa. The thick green lush vegetation typical of the Maldives is surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches and encircled by a crystal clear lagoon making it a wonderful spot to learn to dive. Medhufushi has a vibrant house reef that gently slopes down to 6 metres offering a variety of colourful marine life around large coral formations, you can easily access the 48 dives sites in the area and with mixture of easy and more difficult dives even the most experienced of divers will be blown away with what is waiting to be explored by you.

The resort consists of 112 elegant and beautifully finished villas with thatched roofs scattered around the island, some of these are built partly over the crystal clear blue waters of the lagoon. There are 14 semi-detached beach villas, 44 beach villas, 8 beach villa suites, 44 water villas and 2 lagoon suites. Dining options are aplenty, with half board, full board and all inclusive choices available in the main restaurant Malafaiy which offers the traditional buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner with culinary delights from around the world. Located right next to the pool you can dine whilst gazing out over the beautiful lagoon. Alfresco provides an a la carte menu with a wide range of beverages in an open air setting allowing you to soak up the mesmerising sunset and for those special occasions romantic celebration beach dinners can also be arranged. The Vilu Bar is built over the lagoon offering spectacular beach and ocean views, it has a wide selection of premium drinks and cocktails as well as an extensive snack menu.

Werner Lau is the on-site PADI dive school sitting next to the beautiful lagoon the experienced diver instructors are keen to share the 48 relatively untouched dive sites in the area. Many of the dive spots on offer are in and around the atoll and propose a relatively relaxing and easy dive, there are however a myriad available to the more skilled diver and the instructors will be happy to take you to the more challenging dives on the interior and exterior of the atoll. Guests will not be disappointed for example Grouper Cave is 30 minutes from the resort and offers a sandy plateau around 10 to14 metres covered in beautiful coral formations with huge schools of blues striped snappers and overhangs that drop down from 15 to 33 metres full of soft coral. On the sandy bottom you can often see sting rays hanging around! Half and Half as the name indicates is split into two halves, a wall and a sandy plateau. The wall drops from 5 to 23 metres with numerous caves and overhangs where glass fish, slugs and moral eels can be spotted. The reef then levels out to a sandy bottom where huge shoals of fusiliers, turtles and sting rays exist. There are also numerous outstanding channels to experience, including Mantas & More which is in the top ten of the Maldives channel dive sites. Here you can enjoy the larger pelagic such as groupers, dolphins, sharks, turtles, manta rays, whale sharks and countless grey reef sharks.
