Overview

Finolhu is a vibrant and luxurious retreat, lying on the Baa Atoll in the Maldives. Uniquely positioned in a UNESCO Biosphere reserve, the resort promises laidback island experiences, with long white sandbanks and sublime waters. Stay in your own private villa – whether it’s perched over the water or on the beachfront – and enjoy first-rate service throughout your stay. The variety of facilities appeal to couples and families alike, and include a tennis court, kids’ club, golf studio, spa and lively pool area – in addition to an impressive water sports centre, providing endless ocean adventures. There are also four exceptional restaurants, each offering unique culinary experiences.

Baa Atoll is made up of four separate natural atolls, and Finolhu lies on the largest of them all. It boasts one of the longest sandbanks in the Maldives, surrounded by dappled, turquoise waters which are teeming with incredible marine life. The resort can be reached via a seaplane from Velana International Airport in about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can take a domestic flight to Dharavandhoo Airport and, from there, take a 30-minute speedboat ride to Baa Atoll.

There’s a tempting selection of 125 luxurious villas at Finolhu, starting with the entry-level Lagoon Villas which lie above the water, offering a private sun deck and direct lagoon access. Upgraded Ocean Pool Villas provide a private freshwater swimming pool, plus direct entry to the Indian Ocean, while Beach Villas lead out to a private section of beach. Private Pool Villas have their own tropical garden and sun loungers on the beach, as well as a private pool and a spacious terrace. If you’re a family or group travelling together, stay in a two-bedroom villa with a pool, either on the water or on the beach.
