“It is truly an honour for our little island Fushifaru to be recognised on an international scale, we feel even more determined to excel in all areas of hospitality and host guests from all around the world,” Fushifaru’s General Manager Ahmed Siaar said.

Through consistent five-star guest ratings on TripAdvisor, the Travellers’ Choice award is a testament to Fushifaru’s fantastic hospitality, activities, restaurants and entertainment — all of which have once again been recognised by the traveller community.
