Maafushivaru is a luxurious island resort located in the Maldives.
A true natural gem, the island is the perfect a backdrop for a decadent getaway.
“Located in the southern tip of the picturesque atoll of Ari, Maafushivaru is the embodiment of ‘no-shoes-no-news’ that the Maldives is known for. The island was refurbished in 2010, and offers you villas in three distinct styles, each combining elements of Maldivian architecture with stylish and chic finishing touches.
As is typical in the Maldives, the Reception, Library Lounge walkway and Water Bar are all sand floored. Going barefoot is the only way on this island.
Located in the same lagoon as Maafushivaru, just minutes away, is Lonubo, a stunning deserted islet, exclusively for the use of Maafushivaru guests, where you can choose to while away your days or book a romantic lobster dinner for the evening, just the two of you, on your own private island for the night.
Transfer to the island is by seaplane and takes 25 minutes from Male’ International Airport.
The island is run in collaboration with Kuoni Travel, and can be booked from any Kuoni offices in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands, or via your travel agent. For the convenience of our mutual guests, two Kuoni representatives are based permanently on the island to assist with all guest requests.”
