Overview

Amilla Fushi is a serene and picture-perfect paradise island resort situated within the Baa Atoll, which is recognised as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve thanks to its rich biodiversity. Just half an hour by seaplane from Male, it’s the newest 5 star plus resort in the Maldives. The resort is highly contemporary and combines luxury with a laidback ‘local island’ feel. There’s a village-style general store and the option to self-cater, along with a range of restaurants and eateries offering fine dining to casual snacks and everything in between. The superb facilities include a water sports centre, tennis courts, football pitch, fitness centre and spa.

Accommodation options include villas by the beach, on the water or up in the trees - each one with its own private pool. All villas boast modern, chic decor, with large floor-to-ceiling windows and picturesque views. Bathrooms comprise a bathtub and a walk-in shower, with the toilet in a separate room. Bathrobes and complimentary toiletries are provided, as are tea and coffee making facilities along with crockery and silverware for anyone who opts to cater for themselves.

There’s a superb variety of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The ‘Barolo Grill’ serves up hearty Italian fare, while the award-winning ‘Feeling Koi’ offers relaxed Japanese pub-style options and ‘Wok’ offers a range of Eastern delights. Pick up breakfast at ‘Fresh’ and stop by the ‘Bodyism Café’ for healthier options. There are also several bars and an extensive wine cellar stocked with thousands of international wines to accompany evening meals. Destination dining is available for those wanting an extra special experience, be it a romantic meal for two on the beach or a picnic tucked away in a hidden cove.

There’s no shortage of activities at Amilla Fushi. There are several good snorkelling sites around the island, including two locations where turtles are frequently spotted. H.U.B. is the resort’s underwater exploration and water sports centre where boat charters, diving expeditions and the like can be arranged. On the island itself, there’s a full-service spa and fitness centre, as well as a stylish boutique, a tennis court and football pitch and even a photography studio where guests can go for a complimentary photo shoot and a keepsake 5”7 print.

The provision for families is impressive. The Sultan Village Kids Club has a range of eclectic activities and entertainment for younger ones, whilst the Emperor Beach Club offers plenty of games and sports for teenagers such as volleyball, billiards and badminton. There are giant inflatables for fun in the pool, and diving and snorkelling expeditions tailored specifically to families. Butlers and babysitters are on hand to help out and baby monitors are available for use within your house or residence (although note that the signal doesn't reach the communal hotel areas or pool). Parents are reminded that their children must remain under adult supervision at all times.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
