Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort 

Crisp and chic villas in a dreamy setting

Contemporary architecture with clean lines and designed with a palette that mirrors the sparkling blue surroundings.

Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort is a small and romantic resort with wide white-sand beaches and a glorious lagoon. There’s a house reef for snorkelling, and if you board one of the dive centre’s boat trips, there’s a great chance of spotting turtles, manta rays, and whale sharks nearby. A real highlight of the resort is the private island Lonubo, which is reached by a 200-metre boat transfer across the almost-impossibly-blue lagoon. The island has sun loungers, inviting bean bags and light refreshments and you and your loved one can spend a few hours here lapping up the off-the-beaten-path vibes. For the ultimate experience, you can order an gourmet picnic or a star-lit beach barbecue and while away the evening in style and complete privacy.
