The Maldives is known for it’s luxury villas and resorts – but you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve stayed in one of the beach residences at Amilla Fushi on Baa Atoll from The Small Maldives Island Co.


It’s safe to say we all want the glossy magazine dream of island sunsets, infinity pools and sugar-white beaches. It would be hard to argue that there’s anywhere in the world that fits that dream better than the coral atolls and blue waters of the Maldives.

And it would be hard to argue that the resort and spa of Amilla Fushi on the Baa Atoll, with its beach houses, ocean lagoon houses and tree houses and superb dining options – the world renowned and critically acclaimed chef and restaurateur Luke Mangan is behind the food offerings – is not THE place to stay in the Maldives.

The beach villas, in particular, are spectacular. Every last detail, from the external design to sumptuous luxury interiors, has been created to highest standards. You’ve a choice between two-, four-, six- and eight-bedroom residences, all on the white sand beachfronts, overlooking the magical clear waters of the lagoon. The rooms are all suites with lavish bathrooms, soaking tubs, down pillows and comforters while the gourmet kitchen comes fully equipped and the private swimming pools is the stuff dreams are made of.

The expansive sundeck allows for superb entertaining, there are indoor and outdoor showers, while the open-plan interiors have been designed for ultimate relaxation in mind with exquisite high-end furnishings. The villas also have extra rooms for nannies or private security and playrooms for children. And when, or rather if, you get bored of viewing the incredible sights outside your window and under the sea head inside and lie back on the luxury sofas in front of the 42-inch TV with a Marantz Surround Sound system and watch whatever takes your fancy.
