Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 5 November 2014

The Small Maldives Island Co. will open two island resorts in the Maldives over the next twelve months.

Located in the UNESCO protected Baa Atoll, Amilla Fushi will launch in December this year, followed by a luxury beach club concept resort called Finolhu in late 2015.

Partner with The Small Maldives Island Co. in the venture is Coastline Maldives, one of the Maldives largest private companies and developer of the new Baa Atoll airport.

The words Amilla Fushi which are Maldivian for my island home describe the central theme of the resort. The resort will offer guests a choice of 71 rooms with the smallest measuring a generous 200 square metres, and the largest a palatial 3,000 square metres.

Amilla Fushi will feature an 1,200-metre pool, a spa with fifteen treatment rooms as well as yoga and fitness pavilions. Each guest will be offered a daily complimentary fifty-minute spa treatment.

A Kids Jungle is set among the trees as well as the Kids Zone and Teens games Area. A tennis court and range of water sports, including a Dive Centre will also be available to guests.

Amillas house reef even has its own Blue Hole dive site within snorkelling distance of the beach.

Director Tom McLoughlin, said, While we are unashamedly all about luxury, we want to be different by trying to avoid bill-shock. We charge a fair price for the accommodation, but wi-fi and breakfast are free, as are the water sports and we are very pleased to offer the daily spa treatment at no cost. And no expense has been spared with the generous supply of Aesop toiletries.

As for the F&B, Chef Luke Mangan, said, We will be a foam, gel and smear free zone, thank goodness. We will have caviar and foie gras and truffles if people want them, but my goal is to deliver the opposite of overcomplicated and stuffy food. Its all about fabulous fresh produce. Were blessed with local seafood. Fishermen will deliver straight from their boats to us and the lobster tank will actually be in the ocean under the signature restaurant, Lonu. And we are planning to have the worlds best fish and chips at The Fish and Chip Shop in Baazaar.

Rates start at US$2,000 per night at Amilla.
