Fushifaru Maldives to reopen on Oct 1 with new water villas
Fushifaru Maldives is gearing up for its reopening on October 1, with a fresh look and a collection of brand new overwater villas.
During the resort closure in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Fushifaru is undergoing an exciting upgrade by adding 14 more stunning water villas, crafted with quintessential Maldivian design and modern aesthetics.
Located across the idyllic, aquamarine lagoon, the new water villas will be divided into sunrise and sunset categories. Eight of them will feature pools looking out onto the formidable horizon.
Since its opening in 2017, Fushifaru has been eager to meet travellers’ increasing demand for overwater accommodation options. With the upgrade, the number of water villas at the island will increase to 19 from five, bringing the resort’s total room inventory to 63, which includes a combination of beach and water villas.
“Fushifaru remains a small, boutique Maldivian chic resort and hopes to inspire more travellers to visit by providing more accommodation options,” an announcement read.
