Embrace barefoot elegance at the all-inclusive Constance Moofushi. This Maldivian island hideaway is surrounded by the aquamarine waters of the South Ari Atoll, close to some of the world’s most magical dive sites. It boasts a selection of chic villas, along with two fabulous beachside restaurants and bars. You can spend time stretching in the yoga pavilion, cooling down in the ocean view pool or nurturing yourself at the Constance Spa. There’s also a fully equipped gym and a host of non-motorised water activities on the dazzling waters of the Indian Ocean.
The resort is set on the western edge of the South Ari Atoll in the Maldives, encompassed by pristine beaches and a spectacular house reef. Whilst snorkelling in the lovely lagoons, you will likely spot native blacktip reef sharks, manta rays or hawksbill sea turtles among the coral reefs. You can book diving excursions at the on-site dive centre for a supplement to explore one of the 32 dive sites within 30 minutes of the resort. The local culture of Himandoo village is also a short boat ride away. From Malé International Airport, it’s around a 30-minute seaplane transfer to the resort.
Villas are decked out with rustic materials, such as wood, wicker and bamboo. They feature rope, pearl and driftwood accents that reflect the natural beach setting, and all have ecological thatch roofing. In-room entertainment amenities include a Mac mini with free Wi-Fi, and a TV with movies on demand. Beach Villas are situated along the scenic shore with an outdoor furnished terrace and hammock. Water Villas are set along two jetties, with steps down into the shallow lagoon, while the more spacious Senior Water Villas provide additional amenities such as an outdoor, free-standing bathtub and a Nespresso coffee machine. These villas can also accommodate an extra bed for larger groups or families.

There’s plenty to do at Constance Moofushi, whether you fancy a quiet stroll along the wide beach or an aquatic adventure. Complimentary non-motorised water sports are on offer, such as kayaking, pedal boating and snorkelling. Although the resort does not operate motorised water activities, for conservation purposes, it does have an excellent dive centre with a fully trained dive team. Various diving experiences, catering to all abilities, are available for a supplementary charge. For an extra charge, you can also book a variety of excursions in resort, so you can sail off in a dhoni boat to a private island, embark on a sunset cruise and more.
You can keep active at the yoga pavilion, work out at the indoor-outdoor modern gym or play beach volleyball. Elsewhere, you can listen to special talks from an expert marine biologist, or take a back of house tour to see how everything is run around the property, from the on-site bakery to the production of renewable energy. You can also read in the quiet library or head to the entertainment lounge to play cards, darts, table football and pool. Live evening entertainment includes DJs and traditional Boduberu dancing shows.
You’ll want to reserve some days to relax around the pool, which curves around the beach. This peaceful spot features wooden decks with sun loungers, overlooking the tranquil Indian Ocean. Quench your thirst at the beachside bar nearby, which serves tropical smoothies, iced tea and a variety of alcoholic beverages. You can always withdraw to the Constance Spa for an indulgent facial, massage or body treatment, all of which incorporate natural plant products from the Indian Ocean. The serene treatment rooms, including two double rooms for couples, are ideally set on a jetty above the water with glass floors.
High-quality cuisine underpins the dining experiences at Constance Moofushi. Baked goods are freshly prepared at the on-site bakery each day, and restaurant sommeliers are at hand to pair your dishes with the finest wines.

The international dinner buffets have a daily theme, featuring dishes such as woodfired pizzas and Maldivian curries. Otherwise, you can dine on a white sandy beach at the a la carte Alizée Beach Grill. This al fresco venue specialises in freshly caught seafood, fish and meat dishes, some cooked over a charcoal grill.
You can head to Totem bar for hamburgers, sandwiches and smoothies at lunchtime, or to savour a romantic sundowner on the beach. Manta bar has a friendly atmosphere, where you can enjoy tropical daytime drinks or dance the night away.
