MALDIVES WITH KIDS IN THE FANTASTIC FUSHIFARU MALDIVES…
Maldives with Kids? Of course!
There is no travel lover who does not think about visiting the Maldives!
We often mention that Maldives is one of those destinations that no photo, advertising poster or brochure can recreate, is always MUCH better than it seems.
We had already been there, but it was time to go back to Maldives with the kids.
It was with this idea that we began our research, how to get there, where to stay and what to do…
Maldives rarely appear on the world map, are 1191 small islands grouped in 26 atolls, white sand (like flour…), large hot and crystal clear water lagoons, fantastic hotels, good food, a hospitable and highly professional people when it comes to tourism.
The exclusive Maldives (or almost) for Honeymooners is also something that is no longer true, Maldives are now a family and child friendly destination.
It was one of the best vacations we’ve done to 4.
HOW TO GET THERE
Leaving Lisbon towards Malé is now easier. We still remember the 26 hours and 3 stops in the year 2004, what a dose!
Nowadays there are many companies flying from Europe directly to Maldives, we chose AIRFRANCE for the price and the average flight time (14 hours Lisboa-Malé).
It turned out to be a good decision, if they had not lost ALL of our luggage on the way there, SEE THE EXPERIENCE HERE.
Landing at Maldives International Airport is itself a memorable experience; try to stay close to the window, you will love it!
Depending on the chosen Hotel, the transfer can be via boat or Hydroplane.
In our case and for the wonderful FUSHIFARU, the transfer was by Hydroplane – the most beautiful flight in the world! LOOK HERE!
THE WONDERFUL FUSHIFARU MALDIVES RESORT
The FUSHIFARU Maldives is one of the most beautiful places we have been!
The photos speak for themselves, but we reinforce it… it’s even better than it looks!
Our Paradise is located 35 minutes from Malé via Hydroplane, a small island, 49 rooms, a wonderful lagoon, a private sandbank… and a personalized service at the level of the best hotels in the world!
So incredible on such a small island… it seems like we were always alone – and the Resort had always been 100% occupied!
For us, the real luxury in hospitality lies in the service personalization!
After a few minutes on the Island, everyone knew the names Tiago, Vasco, Rita and Edgar… and do not think it was just with us, this experience extends to all the guests of this wonderful place.
The magic begins even in the Hydroplane, the first images we have of Fushifaru do not deceive… we have reached paradise!
Fushifaru guests are welcomed by the entire resort team to the sound of “Boduberu” (traditional drum), and “Sangu” (sea urchin) that announce to all residents that some more lucky people are arriving to the Island.
Let’s get to know Fushifaru a little better!
Located in Lhaviyani Atoll, 35 minutes from Malé by Hydroplane.
The name Fushifaru was inspired by ‘Fushi’ which means ‘island’, and ‘Faru’ meaning ‘reef’ in the local language – Dhivehi.
The island is positioned between two channels that connect the inner lagoon of atoll to the vast Indian Ocean.
The largest of the two channels, Fushifaru Kan’du is a national marine protection area and houses three unique dive sites, including the famous Fushifaru Thila, one of the most popular dive sites in Maldives.
A short distance away we have the private sandbank of Fushifaru.
STRUCTURE, SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES
One Island, 49 rooms, 2 restaurants, 1 bar, a multi-activity field, a diving center, a water sports and leisure center, gym, Spa… and that sand, palm trees and water!
The Heylhi Spa is great, we enjoyed the single rainy morning and did not resist a Balinese massage for two!
The divind and nautical activities center – Best Dives Maldives
With some of the best dive sites in the world, and activities such as “Turtle Quest” and “Manta Diving”, it becomes an inescapable spot on Fushifaru!
Did not take your snorkeling gear?
The dive center lends this material at no cost to you!
Respect for Nature and sustainability
Fushifaru is self-sustaining, produces its own water and energy!
Plastic “zero”, renewable energies, culture and reuse of local resources are some of its mottos!
Maldives experiences for all…
Boduberu Class, Traditional Maldives Instrument.
The diversity of coconut utilities – all its applications, such as climbing the coconut trees, common uses, everything in a presentation full of smiles and unforgettable moments!
Picnic on a sandbank, alone in the middle of the immense Indian Ocean…
There are several options, quality and freshness is a constant; the Maldives have become a gastronomic destination par excellence!
Korakali & Raakani Grill Restaurant
Varied breakfast and an excellent lunch and dinner Buffet with local ingredients and influences, but adapted to the palate of any traveler!
We highlight the show cooking stations and the night of Maldives (Friday), not to be missed…
Raakani Grill is an à la carte, with lots of Asian delicacies and a seafood menu…
Snacks, ice cream, cocktails (we highlight the detox offer), nightlife, and that sunset that leaves you jaw dropped!
