Finolhu, a luxury island resort, surrounded by breathtaking azure waters, pristine white beaches and a fun filled atmosphere where you can experience an adventure of a lifetime.

The Maldives resort of Finolhu offers you such experiences. Just imagine that you’re sitting on the terrace of your private villa at sunset and a manta ray suddenly swims by. Or you’re snorkeling in the sea in the morning and are greeted by a colorful and curious turtle. In Finolhu you’re living on the verge of a very distinctive world: the sea is the world’s largest natural habitat. And here in Baa Atoll – which is protected by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve – the colors of the corals and fish unfold their very special magic. Finolhu is a place of dreams, both on the beach and in the water.

Those who are looking for tranquility can surrender to the music of the waves and the brilliant blue of the sea.  The tropical plants line the sandy paths of the main island like a botanical garden. In Finolhu, you can choose to immerse yourself in different worlds not just underwater.

So, come and share your dreams with us! We look forward to welcoming you!
