A unique Maldives resort, Maafushivaru is an island that epitomizes 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 350 metres in length and can be walked in just 10 minutes and a bit!

Thatch-roofed villas inspired by local architecture are either set amidst verdant gardens or 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.

At Maafushivaru, let us help you make memories that will be forever cherished.

For evening dining, in addition to the buffet, we offer an à la carte selection or a choice of private dining experiences for that ‘special occasion’. Another à la carte option is ‘135° East’ our Teppanyaki and Sushi restaurant.

Outdoor À La Carte Dining

Our options for outdoor dining in Maldives are a mix of both exquisite food and natural settings. In the evening, there is an option to select from the à la carte menu instead of the buffet. If you prefer, you can book your table for this option on the sundeck looking over the sea or on the beach.

Cuisine Gallery, Main Restaurant

Our main restaurant, puts on a wonderful buffet selection, that will be sure to leave you tempted to ‘try just a little bit more’. This chic restaurant in Maldives features airy, open seating and an additional terrace that overlooks 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 à la carte menu which features a selection of our favourite dishes.

This coffee shop serves a range of teas, speciality coffees such as cappuccino and espresso, or hot chocolate during the day. High Tea is available here between 15.00 and 17.00 for our guests on the All Inclusive package. In this lounge there is a supply of books and magazines which you can borrow and read at your leisure or board games to while away a few hours.

Romantic Private Dining

For the ultimate experience in romantic dining in Maldives, we present a range of options for that very special occasion or even just to spoil your loved one. Why not book an intimate dining experience with us in a private setting for just the two of you?

Lobster dinner

A five-course set dinner on the powdery white sand with the waves gently breaking beside you.

Romantic dinner

Celebrate romance with a candle-lit four-course dinner in a secluded spot right on the beach. Revel in each other’s company whilst we provide that extra special romantic meal.

Lonubo dinner

For the crème de la crème romantic experience why not hire your own private island for the evening? Your personal chef and waiter will prepare a sumptuous meal before leaving you to relax alone, together under the stars.

Evening Entertainment

On other evenings the range of entertainment is on offer at the Water Bar or discotheque and includes live music, movie night and mellow chill-out sounds. A schedule for the week’s entertainment is posted in the reception area.

Water Sports

Our water sports centre has a range of windsurfing equipment, catamarans, canoes and pedaloes. If you are new to windsurfing or sailing, our staff will be happy to ‘show you the ropes’.

We have something for everyone from an hour on the water or a full day away. Select from the list below.

While away a quiet afternoon on the deserted island of Lonubo.

Visit one of the local islands, Dhangethi, with its typical Maldivian village, for a taste of local lifestyle and culture and maybe do a little souvenir shopping.

Take a full day island-hopping trip with a beach barbecue for lunch.

The sunset cruise is a must! Enjoy a special cocktail while watching the fiery sun disappear and the sky turn that wonderful shade of pink ….so romantic! If you’re lucky you might even see a few dolphins…

For fishermen (and women!) go Big Game Fishing for Wahoo, Barracuda or Sailfish on one of the half day or full day trips. Alternatively, go trolling, another popular recreational sport in the Maldives, where a fishing line is drawn by a local Dhoni through the bountiful waters. Common catch includes Rainbow Runner, Wahoo and Yellow Fin Tuna.

Another great sunset experience is to go fishing from a dhoni which will take you out to the reef as the sun sets. Hopefully you will catch your own fish for lunch the next day.

For a more private experience you can hire a dhoni for the day and explore the islands to your own schedule. Hop on and off as the mood takes you. Stop and snorkel whenever you want.

Snorkeling

Snorkeling is a must in the Maldives. If you don’t want to dive, or in addition to diving, you can see so many different vibrant corals, colourful fish and even turtles just from the surface of the water.

Our team is available to help beginners gain their first taste of the wonderful underwater world in the lagoon before progressing to the house reef and even a boat trip to snorkel at the Coral Garden.

For more experienced snorkelers there is a range of full morning snorkel safaris by boat to other reefs, all guided by a marine biologist who can help you identify what you see. Choose from spotting manta rays at Manta Point (seasonal), swimming with whale sharks at Ocean Reef, turtles in Boli Thila and a whole range of colourful fish and corals at Bodu, Kuda, Clementhila or the Sandbank.

What better way to more fully experience the abundant marine life and colourful corals than to be right there amongst them?

Our fully equipped PADI dive centre with enthusiastic multi-lingual instructors offers a wide range of underwater adventures catering for all levels from beginners to experienced divers. Beginners will become ‘hooked’ when they discover the amazing underwater world, while experienced divers are sure to see something new among the many types of sharks, mantas, turtles, napoleons, tuna and other smaller, but maybe more colourful, dwellers on the reef.

There are two dives each day, morning and afternoon, from on board a Maldivian dhoni. Night dives, half day and full day trips to sites further afield are organised regularly. In addition, a range of courses leading to PADI certification is on offer.

For more information regarding diving, snorkeling and water sports available on Maafushivaru, please visit Dive Maafushivaru, our dedicated website.

The wellness centre of our celebrated beach resort in Maldives, also has a fully equipped gymnasium to help you keep fit whilst on holiday.
