Finolhu Resort Maldives
Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa atoll, this retro retreat can be reached by either seaplane in just 30 minutes from the main Velana International Airport or by a 20-minute flight to Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport in the atoll followed by a short speedboat ride.
Finolhu is a stylish and eclectic retreat with a buzzy bon-vivant vibe and a refreshing, retro-inspired burst of fun for the region.
The resort brings toes-in-the-sand relaxation to the fun-loving beach-erati alongside the best DJs, live acts and most fabulously chic parties in the Maldives.
Finolhu’s 125 villas come on the ocean, the lagoon or by the beach, with or without pool in either one or two bedroom options being the ultimate island experience for chic couples, fun-loving families and gatherings of friends alike.
There are four restaurants and two bars, from relaxed, beachside snacking to more formal dining: among the options are Asian-style Kanusan, Baa Haa Grill, which serves North African flavours, and the 1 Oak Beach Club, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while trying to spot dolphins in the sea.
The most spectacular restaurant of all is the Fish & Crab Shack, not least because you have to walk down the sublime sandbank to reach it. Once you’re there, it’s relaxed, unpretentious and simple, a rustic shack with plenty of delicious dishes and cocktails: you’d be hard-pressed to match these surroundings anywhere else.
The spa, named The Cove Club, is a real highlight and a unique spin on traditional spas in the Maldives where you’ll enjoy a pampering treatment in one of ten charming pastel huts, each of which celebrates a famous musical diva. Rather than typical spa music, you’ll have the choice of playing these divas’ hits which make a for quirky experience.
