Medhufushi in The Maldives
Medhufushi is a superb 4-star resort in the Maldives and is particularly popular with Couples and Honeymooners, and is also great for Divers with full PADI diving and certification.
Located in the unspoilt Meemu Atoll, Medhufushi Island Resort offers charming villa accommodation, extensive water sports facilities and a laid-back friendly vibe. It’s therefore no surprise that it is one of the most popular resorts in the Maldives.
The thatched villas are simply furnished in traditional Maldivian style, each with a large private veranda. Choose from a beachfront or overwater location. For maximum privacy book one of the two Lagoon Suites that stand alone in the ocean, accessible only by private ‘Dhoni’. The Family Villas are ideal if you’re holidaying with children and consist of two interconnecting Beach Villas.
Water Sports and Diving
The resort is set in a lagoon so the best diving is experienced away from the island and the Medhufushi dive centre, operated by the renowned Werner Lau, can arrange this. On the plus side, this means that you can walk into the lagoon without standing on any coral and the resort is able to offer an impressive choice of water sports: kayaking, kite surfing, water-skiing, wake boarding, tubing and even surfing. If you prefer a more relaxing holiday, head to the overwater spa. The main restaurant overlooking the beachfront swimming pool offers a changing menu of international buffets, with especially delicious Asian cuisine; or treat yourself to a meal at the overwater à la carte restaurant.
Restaurants & Bars
Malaafaiy – the main buffet restaurant has a sand floor and spacious dining area under a lofty roof, several live cooking stations and serves all main meals in a relaxed environment.
Al Fresco – is the a la carte option located on the jetty over the water for full ocean views, offering snacks and light meals, salads and international favourites including burger, pasta, mezze, tapas style dishes.
A weekly Beach Barbecue is also popular when fresh local fish and international cuisine is served under the stars.
Vilu Bar – also located on the jetty adjacent to Al Fresco, has a menu for many snacks during the daytime to accompany cool cocktails and refreshing smoothies, beers and wines.
