Welcome to the Filitheyo Island Resort Maldives. Filitheyo is the only island resort in the un-spoilt Faafu Atoll. A natural tropical Island, which is lush in vegetation and surrounded by a stunning house reef. The resort offers guests what can only be described as a barefoot luxury retreat. Geographically, the island is located approximately 120km south west of the capital island Malé and can be reached by a 35 minute sea plane flight followed by a ten minute dhoni boat ride. This lovely island is approximately 900m in length and 500m wide, with a total of 125 villas designed to blend in with the island atmosphere all of which have pleasurable outside bathrooms. Nestleling discreetly amongst the palm trees along the beach, they blend harmoniously with the natural habitat, with the resort exuding a relaxed charm.
Located on the beachfront, these semi-detached villas feature a king size four poster bed or twin beds, private sundeck with day bed and semi-open air bathroom with outdoor shower. Interconnecting rooms can be requested for families and groups.
The detached Superior Villas stand alone on the beachfront. Features include a king size four poster bed or twin beds, private sundeck with day bed and semi-open air bathroom with outdoor shower and bathtub.
Standing on stilts over the lagoon, the spacious water villas are furnished with a king size four poster bed or twin beds, a large bathroom with a jacuzzi, day bed and a private sundeck with a traditional ‘udoli’ (swing chair) and private steps leading directly into the water.
At Filitheyo you can experience one of the most beautiful spas in the Maldives. The jungle spa is nestled in the heart of the island, surrounded by lush foliage and stunning tropical gardens. Surrounded by verdant vegetation and exotic birdsong, the spacious air-conditioned spa treatment rooms have glass walls on three sides. From here you can take in the spectacular views and discover an array of treatments. Alternatively, you can have your treatment in the open air, under the shade of a pagoda.
Treatments include the signature 90-minute Filitheyo Fusion massage which combines the best of five international massage techniques to stimulate the body’s energy flow. The Hot Stone Massage is a popular choice involving the use of gently-heated basalt stones, inducing a deep sense of comfort and relaxation. Thai massage can be performed in the open-air pavilion, using traditional techniques and gentle stretches to help rejuvenate your body. Conclude your treatment with a refreshing drink of ginger tea in the al fresco relaxation area followed by an open-air shower in the private garden.
Filitheyo is one of the finest resorts in the Maldives for diving and the team of multilingual Werner Lau staff are waiting to welcome you.
The house reef is in excellent health and there are seven marked access points. Here on the house reef you can discover all kinds of exciting marine life including reef fish, rays, turtles, sharks, eels and lobsters. In the surrounding area, Faafu Atoll, you can explore by dive boat excursion more than 40 pristine reefs, thilas, channels, wrecks and caves bursting with vibrant marine life and healthy corals. As it’s the only resort in the atoll you won’t run into other groups of divers at the dive sites either.
There is a range of SSI courses for uncertified divers or anyone wanting to further their training, such as the drift speciality course. Another popular highlight is the UV night dive (fluro dive) on the house reef – an incredible way of seeing the remarkable underwater world.
The Water-sports Centre also provides further opportunities to enjoy the magnificent lagoon, with windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and catamaran sailing available. On land, you can enjoy volleyball, table-tennis, darts, billiards and board games.
Those who like to keep in shape can use the small but well-equipped air-conditioned gym, where a personal trainer is also available. There is also a small library adjacent to the ornamental pond; a peaceful spot for quiet reading.
