Opened in 2016, Finolhu is now firmly established as one of the finest resorts in the Maldives. Finolhu, which means “sandbank” in the local Maldivian language, is renowned for its two-kilometre white powdery beaches that stretch out across four islands, creating a barefoot chic paradise. With Finolhu’s 125 private villas, four restaurants and array of activities complementing the island’s natural beauty, every day on Finolhu’s island playground is as varied as the coral reef landscape of the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Under the water, surround yourself with the various marine life, whilst exploring an extensive coral system. Finolhu’s house reef is very accessible, making it safe and fun for even novice snorkelers. On land, take a relaxing stroll in the shade of tropical plants on the main island, or wander across the sandbank to chase the sunset or enjoy a few sundowners at Crab Shack. Nothing beats that ocean-breeze-on-skin plus toes-in-the-sand feeling.
For the adventurous, water sports, boat excursions and diving trips await. How about a 30-minute boat ride to the famous Hanifaru Bay to swim with the manta rays and whale sharks? From the opal waters of the lagoon to the turquoise blue shallows along the shore and the sapphire blue deep beyond, Finolhu is a slice of paradise in three shades of blue.
Here in Finolhu kids are simply referred to as “Oceaneers”. Their Maldives kids club is a world that enchants and encourages creativity – in playing, cooking and baking and of course duringguided excursions on and below the water.
At the Oceaneers Club well-trained staff are available for teenagers and toddlers from morning till night. Parents know that their children will be well looked after here for a few hours, and can spend some relaxing time on their own without worries.
