A dream-like island of tropical blossoms, swaying palms, leafy jungle foliage and the softest of white sand, Filitheyo is located on one of the Maldives’ most untouched and serene atolls. Reached by a seaplane flight from Mahé, followed by a 10-minute dhoni ride, the Filitheyo Island Resort is an utterly tranquil island paradise, perfect for a honeymoon or a romantic holiday. The stunning coral reef surrounding the island protects a shimmering lagoon, teeming with colourful marine life.
Through the lush interior of the island, under the canopy of dense tropical vegetation, small sandy trails wind their way to the beautifully appointed accommodation. There is a choice between clusters of thatched-roof villas overlooking the beach, or stunning water villas suspended over the ocean. All rooms have four-poster beds with romantic white curtains, and the water villas have sun-decks furnished with udolis, the traditional Maldivian swinging chairs.
The main restaurant is a beautiful and spacious pavilion under a coconut-thatch roof, with chefs on hand at the live cooking stations to tailor their menus to your exact wishes. Another romantic venue, the Sunset Restaurant, is right at the tip of the island for the best sunset views, or you can choose a private dinner on the beach. The romance continues at one of the Maldives’ most exquisite spas, deep within verdant foliage, with treatments in glass-walled rooms, or in the open air under a pagoda.
