First luxury 'Glamping' experience in the Maldives

Escape to a brand new island sanctuary. Located in one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives, Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is a luxury all-villa resort bordered by natural mangrove forests and soft white-sand beaches overlooking an endless turquoise sea. 

Relax and unwind in the natural elegance and rustic chic of the resort’s spacious beach and water villas, all featuring an outdoor bathroom, a private pool, butler service and a choice of either a stunning sunrise or sunset view. Or, for a unique tropical escape, be one of the first to try the Maldives’ first glamping experience in a luxury tented jungle villa. Sample the delectable cuisine in the resort's three incredible restuarants from fresh seafood at AZURE to Japanese tapas at KATA - complete with rooftop bar for artisan cocktails as the sun sets.

Discover a range of unrivaled experiences and activities to suit every kind of traveller. Couples will love sailing away on a champagne sunset dolphin cruise aboard the resort’s own private yacht, or having a dedicated chef prepare a private BBQ under a canopy of stars. Families can spend time together diving or snorkeling in the pristine 9km long house reef that surrounds the resort or kids and teenagers can spend time in the fantastically deisgned Kids Club / Teen Hangout while parents indulge in a traditional Ayurveda treatment in the Willow Steam Spa or simply relax by the a 200-metre long swimming pool which traverses the length of the island.

overall a good stay

Mumbai, India

Pro's 1. Amazing Property - clean and well planned. 2. Bunch of Actvities. 3. Extremely friendly professionals at the dive centre. 4. Kata Restaurant - Food was really good here. 5. A very warm welcome by the seniors of the hotel on arrival. Con's 1. 50 minute sea plane ride from male airport. Could be more if there are stops on the way. 2. Inexperienced waiting staff who have a tendency to say things which are not required and made us uncomfortable. They could do without frowning and be more welcoming. 3. Breakfast was the same for 3 days we were there. No change whatsoever. Special Mention 1. Flo and his team @ the dive centre - a real gem of a team. warm and welcoming and was always front row in assissting us. 2. Najah @ the arts centre was helpful and motivating. Overall a great stay but can definitely get better over time with better training and weed out teething issues. Thank you.

Beautiful place to stay

Surabaya, Jawa Timur, Indonesia

Me and My Wife stayed at Sunset Grand Water Villa for 3 nights (Honeymoon) and it was a beautiful memorable vacation. The Island was beautiful, the beaches were beautiful with very clear water. Our Butler was awesome of taken care of our needs, he even gave us souvenirs from his own creations. We had private dinner too next to the sea by ourselves, a butler and a chef plus a big Bluetooth speaker belongs to Mahil own property lent it to us. I enjoyed walking around the island because of its beauty forest in the middle of the island. To reach the island from the Maldives Velana airport, you need to fly in the seaplane that can be organize by the Fairmont people. When we need to check out the Fairmont people really took care of us until we check in. The villa was beautiful, big and clean. The Housekeeping was very creative with the towel, he made a crocodile shape from the toweland other thing. Really enjoy our stay overthere, only the weather was a bit unpredictable. The Breakfast was not bad at all, many choices.
