Seeking a stunning absolute-beachfront residence on a spectacular tropical island ringed with pristine white-sand beaches, coral reefs and azure waters rich with marine life?
Travelling with a few friends or families as a large group? Insisting on ultra-luxury living but with a breezy laid-back vibe?
Yearning for complete privacy yet with easy access to top-notch restaurants, diving, water and land sports, spa therapies?
The 8-bedroomed Great Beach Villa Residence ticks all the boxes and so much more.
This is the largest of eight hyper-luxury residences on Amilla Fushi, on an idyllic coral-rimmed spec of an island sitting within a UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve on the eastern edge of the Maldives’ Baa Atoll in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
Contemporary in design with carefully curated interiors, it offers two palatial master suites, six further guest suites, and abundant living space for both entertainment and relaxation.
Two alfresco dining decks and two private beach-edge swimming pools are the focus of outdoor activities while within the residence there’s gym equipment, table tennis, pool table, a PlayStation 4, myriad board games, and more TVs and DVD players than one can count.
The kitchen and bar are both exceptionally well equipped – think range cooker, barbecue, coffee machine and wine fridges, and iPads and Marantz sound systems are among the high-tech gizmos.
Helping residents feel at home – Amilla Fushi translates as ‘my island home’ – is a friendly katheeb (house master) who takes care of each guest’s every need with grace and from-the-heart generosity in true island spirit.
A Rolls beach buggy and bicycles, pillow menu, and two extensive Providores (grocery) lists – one with complimentary items and the other with luxury items chargeable to guests, add to the at-home feeling.
The icing on the cake? Residents enjoy access to Amilla’s astonishing facilities: world-class restaurants; myriad diving, water and land-based activities; kids-&-teens club; and a world-class spa, gym and wellbeing center.
Called “the most idyllic and relaxing place on earth” by supermodel Kate Moss, Amilla Fushi can be reached by seaplane or a short domestic flight from Male International Airport (and ten-minute speedboat ride).
Alternatively private yachts are welcome at the resort’s marina.
