Finolhu Maldives Resort opened its doors in 2016 and quickly became one of the best beach resorts in the Maldives. The resort hotel encompasses four islands, allowing guests to immerse themselves in different worlds. The Finolhu is a five-star resort hotel that recently became a member of Design Hotels, the first of the region, having also entered TripAdvisor’s 2021 Awards List.
The Finolhu Resort condenses selected European luxury with striking design finishes such as sheep sculptures, old-school telephones, record players and rustic signs. The resort is ideal for those seeking tranquillity and turquoise blue seas. The Finolhu island was acquired in 2019 by Germany’s Seaside Collection, giving it a distinctively European-style hotel philosophy that embraces the types of carefree, beachside gatherings.
Finolhu Maldives harmonises nostalgia with sleek contemporary surroundings in a paradise island with energy and feels that sets itself apart from other hotels in the same region. The resort recently underwent a renovation that brought luxury and lifestyle closer. This refurbishment was overseen by the award-winning London studio Muza Lab. The studio’s founder Inge Moore created a kaleidoscope design concept, taking influence from the fragmentation of light on the blue-toned water and the many purple, pink and apricot colours of the sunset.
The Finolhu has one hundred and twenty-five guest villas that also adopt the kaleidoscope concept that is featured throughout the resort, characterised by a mesmerising blend of colours and symmetrical patterns, complemented by the island’s natural beauty. The two-bedroom Rockstar Villas are bright and colourful and are perfect for big families or groups of friends.
The Beach Villas and the Beach Pool Villas are a great option for those seeking privacy, all of the villas have their own beautifully landscaped gardens, and many have their own private swimming pools. Another amazing feature of Seaside Finolhu is its iconic Beach Bubble. The first of its kind in the Maldives, the bubble is located in a secluded spot along Seaside Finolhu’s marvellous sandbank and is exclusively available for guests wishing to enjoy a uniquely romantic night under the stars.
The Fehi Spa consists of ten treatment rooms, individually surrounded by the lush greenery of the island. Guests can expect to journey back to nature with treatments using local ingredients, such as coconut oil and coconut milk including Fehi’s signature Maldivian Healing Treatment, which involves a coconut oil massage, a warm sand poultice and a coconut milk glaze.
The hotel’s Michelin-trained chef, Memo Hernandez, leads Finolhu Resort’s culinary experiences across the resort’s four restaurants, where every table comes with a spectacular view. The culinary team brings an exquisite mix of artisanship, individuality and international flair with fresh produce and ingredients being a key focus behind the cuisine.
The four restaurants at the resort take guests on a gastronomic journey with modern Japanese and Asian cuisine at Kanusan; flavours of the Middle East and North Africa at the Arabian Grill; Italian, Asian, Maldivian and fresh seafood dishes at Beach Kitchen; and fresh seafood platters at Crab Shack. The Beach Bar is the heart of the resort, bringing European beach club vibes, with laid-back beats and exotic cocktails that can be enjoyed throughout the day and late into the evening.
