Huvafen Fushi by Per Aquum, The World’s First Underwater Spa in the Maldives

Luxury 5* Hotel

Maldives boasts of several underwater treats and to that long list is now added the world’s first underwater spa.

Huvafen Fushi is a 30-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport. An alternative seaplane ride takes 15 minutes.

Huvafen Fushi

The Huvafen Fushi luxury resort on the island state has opened the undersea spa and has recently expanded its list of offerings.

The cutely names spa, ‘Lime’ has a new set of treatments christened Lose It, Tone It, Stress Buster and Cellulite Therapy.

It took over 12 months to create this underwater retreat. Five inches thick solid cast resin has been used. This material provides a sturdy structure and gives a much clearer view than the cheaper laminated glasses. The resin also causes least possible disturbance to the surrounding ecosystem.

For guests who aren’t too keen on getting a massage while looking at the marine life, there is a spa on the surface as well.

The other underwater attractions in Maldives include Ithaa, an undersea restaurant. It is located 15 metres under sea level and is surrounded by coral reefs. It is part of Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. It gives a stunning 270 degree view to the guests and the price range is around $120-$250. 14 guests can dine at a time. Then there is the underwater music club called Subsix, of the Niyama resort. It is located six metres below the water level. Here guests can drink like a fish, and be in their company too!

Your sensual escape in paradise to a waking dream of enviable accommodation, underwater spa treatments and an underground wine cellar begins with a 40-minute speedboat journey from Male international airport. Our airport representative will greet you upon immigration and customs clearance at the airport to guide you to our lounge and comfortable speedboats. From here you step onboard our fleet of LIQUID speedboats and glide across the jewel-coloured waters, past local fishing boats and islands of glowing reefs.

All domestic transfers* are booked by the resort and charged on arrival during the resort check in. To ensure your transfer is as smooth as possible, please share your arrival and departure flight details with us at least 48 hours before your arrival to Male by email to reservations.maldives@peraquum.com.

*Roundtrip transfers are priced at USD 200++ per person, with 50% discount for children up to 11yrs and complimentary for children under 2yrs. Our speedboat transfer service operates 24 hours and can accommodate early morning and late evening flights.

Poolside

The large lagoon-like infinity-edged pool bleeds into the watery horizon of the Indian Ocean and is surrounded by four-poster day beds; by night, it's romantically lit with fibre-optic lights and reflects the inky sky.

Packing tips

Every piece of swimwear you have; a dozen kaftans/beach cover-ups; flip-flops, thongs, sandals… but not stilettos; diving and medical certificates and log book if you want some underwater action.

Also

Minimum 10-night stays between 10 December and 20 January. The underwater spa – designed by the ever-innovative Richard Hywel Evans – offers award-winning treatments and one-off visits by top beauty consultants, including Anastasia Achilleos.

Children

This surrounded-by-water holiday haven is not ideal for kids – but they are welcome. Extra beds ($55–$100) or cribs (free) can be added to all bungalows; Beach/Ocean Pavilions can accomodate up to four adults and two under-12s.

Hotel Restaurant

So many options: fine fishy dining around the open kitchen at Salt, set in an overwater pavilion; spa cuisine at Raw; all-day low-key dining at sandy-floored lagoon-view Celcius; wine-matched meals at Vinum; pizza under the palm trees at Fogliani's…

Hotel Bar

Super-cool UMbar shakes up deliciously dirty martinis with its extensive vodka list, as well as champagne cocktails, mocktails et al. Try an Asian-flavour-packed Crouching Tiger, with lemongrass, lychee, gin sake, ginger liqueur and jasmine tea.

Last orders

Breakfast at Celsius, 7am–10.30am; Fogliani's and Raw open from noon until 4pm; Salt and Cardamom Lounge, 7pm–11pm. Reservations recommended. UMbar stays open as long as you can stay up…

Room service

A comprehensive in-room menu is available 24 hours a day. Definitely try the Maldivian breakfast (sambol, curry and chapatis); you can also have a private chef come and set up a seafood or mixed-grill barbecue on your sundeck.
