This island retreat brings you a myriad of interesting and innovative things to do such as stargazing from the island’s observatory, sandbank dining or even sleepovers and a serene open-air cinema; there are numerous water sports as you might imagine however even for the Maldives this place, with its UNESCO recognition is pretty special. The island is close to Manta Point for the graceful Manta Rays whilst at certain times of year a visit to Hanifuru will give you sightings of the remarkable whale shark.


‘This is a staggeringly beautiful island which is 1.5km in length and surrounded by exotic jungle on one side and blue lagoons on the other; if you like to snorkel on a whim then the marine-rich house reef is ever-present, dining is organic and simply delicious and with villas and suites capacious enough to impress the most demanding visitor it will be hard to find any downside to this superb property and glorious location!’
