Located within the Baa Atoll, Maldives, Amilla Fushi will open on 21 December 2014. Accommodation ranges in size from 200m² to 3,000m², encompassing a series of beach, lagoon, ocean lagoon and ocean reef houses, plus 12-metre high tree houses, all of which come equipped with private pools.
But while the resort will be undoubtedly top-end, Amilla Fushi’s ‘island chief’, Tom McLoughlin said guests would not feel the pinch as much as at other luxury properties in the Maldives.
“While we are unabashedly all about luxury, we want to be different by trying to avoid the ‘bill-shock,” McLoughlin explained.
“Besides charging a fair price for the accommodation, Wi-Fi and breakfast are complimentary, as are the motorised and non-motorised water sports, and we are very pleased to offer a 50-minute daily spa treatment per person at no cost. And no expense has been spared with the generous supply of Aesop bathroom amenities,” he added.
The resort will also feature a series of F&B outlets overseen by famous Australian chef Luke Mangan. These include over-water restaurant, Lonu, the pool-side Baazaar, which includes a fish and chip shop, and a roof-top bar.
The resort’s facilities are completed by a dive and water sports centre, a fitness and yoga pavilion, and a spa featuring 10 private treatment rooms.
Amilla Fushi will become Worldhotels’ first member in the Maldives.
