Located in the southern tip of the picturesque atoll of Ari, Maafushivaru is the embodiment of ‘no-shoes-no-news’ that the Maldives is known for. The island was refurbished in 2010, and offers you villas in three distinct styles, each combining elements of Maldivian architecture with stylish and chic finishing touches.

As is typical in the Maldives, the Reception, Library Lounge walkway and Water Bar are all sand floored. Going barefoot is the only way on this island.

Located in the same lagoon as Maafushivaru, just minutes away, is Lonubo, a stunning deserted islet, exclusively for the use of Maafushivaru guests, where you can choose to while away your days or book a romantic lobster dinner for the evening, just the two of you, on your own private island for the night.
