Among resorts in Maldives, Maafushivaru is the typical island epitomizing all that one dreams of when thinking of the Maldives. With its small island charm, lush vegetation surrounded by powder-white soft sand, and a house reef that a myriad of tropical fish call home, the island is just over 500 metres in length and can be walked in just 10 minutes and a bit!
Thatch-roofed villas inspired by local architecture are set amidst verdant gardens or are poised over the turquoise lagoon. Deceivingly modest exteriors hide worldly comforts and indulgences and all villas offer direct access to the beach or to the sea.
Designed for couples seeking to rekindle their romance or for families looking to spend quality time together, Maafushivaru offers an experience that elegantly combines a Maldives from times-gone-by with the contemporary luxuries of the present, distinguishing it from other Maldives all-inclusive resorts.
The main restaurant at our Maldives luxury hotel puts on a wonderful buffet selection, sure to leave you tempted to ‘just try that little bit more’, and features airy, open seating. There is an additional terrace overlooking the lagoon. Seating is on a first come – first served basis.
Our chefs have creatively designed sumptuous buffets which successfully combine international fare with local flavours. Breakfast offers a wide choice of cereal, fresh pastries and breads, fresh fruits, juices and a ‘cooking station’ where eggs, waffles and pancakes are freshly prepared to your liking. Lunch consists of lighter foods with a variety of salads, soup, hot dishes, pasta and fresh fruit. At Dinner there is a wide selection of courses from the wonderful Mediterranean-inspired buffets which are regularly infused with local flavours. Tuesday night is ‘Maldivian Night’ when you have the chance to experience some of the local dishes.
In the evening there is also an option to order from the `a la carte menu which features a selection of our favourite dishes.
