Amilla Fushi debuts new SkyHouse with Bubble
Bubble tent concept is being elevated to a whole new level in the Maldives this year, as luxury resort trendsetter Amilla Fushi debuts its new Skyhouse with Bubble accommodation — tranquil treetop eyries with their own private transparent Bubble, breathtakingly suspended 12 metres up between a canopy of lush palms and the vast Maldivian skies.
The first Skyhouse with Bubble was officially opened by the Maldives tourism minister Ali Waheed, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at ITB Berlin on March 6.
Encircled by swaying palms, and measuring four metres in diameter, the bubble’s interior will feature custom-fitted wooden floors, a rotating daybed, telescope, Bang & Olufsen sound system and bespoke furnishings. A removable cover provides solar protection during the day – and come nightfall, unfettered views of the star-studded heavens above.
In addition to this spectacularly heightened hideaway, the enchanting 220sqm Skyhouse also boasts serene living spaces; a private infinity pool cantilevered out amongst the treetops; and a spacious bathroom. Formerly known as Tree Houses, Amilla’s five Skyhouses are available in one- or two-bedroom configurations, providing an ideal treetop hideaway for families and couples alike.
Conceived and custom-designed by Eye In The Sky, the transparent inflatable bubbles are constructed with super-strong, high tech polyester fabric using exclusive Précontraint Serge Ferrari technology. UV-protected, fully waterproof and climate-controlled, the Bubbles create an inspiring environment where guests can enjoy a uniquely immersive, closer-to-nature experience — without compromising on high-spec design and luxurious creature comforts.
Rates for Amilla Fushi’s new immersive SkyHouse with Bubble Experience are available on request, including accommodation; specially designed destination dinner; and breakfast served in the SkyHouse with Bubble, based on two adults sharing.
Located just 30 minutes by seaplane from Velana International Airport, Amilla Fushi offers a choice of 59 Houses that sit gracefully over crystal clear waters, nestle among lush tree tops or hug the shores of pristine white sand; plus eight spectacular four- to eight-bedroom Beach Residences ideally suited to large families, groups of friends and VVIPs seeking the ultimate in space and privacy.
Amilla’s innovative restaurants range from the diverse, informal foodie hub Baazaar to the relaxed yet sophisticated overwater dining at the signature Feeling Koi. Guests can even drop in to gourmet café and deli The Emperor General Store or The Wine Shop & Cellar Door to treat themselves to lighter snacks, a favourite bottle or a gourmet selection of artisanal cheeses.
With an unrivalled range of purpose-designed multi-bedroom accommodation options, and an exciting, inspiring and active Kids’ Club, Amilla Fushi is putting the Maldives on the map as a destination not just for couples, but for families and friends.
