The latest addition to the Maldives’ tourism industry has arrived, stirring from a happy slumber under the warm Indian Ocean sun to open the doors to its first guests.

Simple luxury is offered in beach villas, complete with outdoor showers, on the north of the tiny island, while garden rooms nestled in the island’s luscious green offer affordability as well as seclusion.
The first guests to the new resort can enjoy international cuisine over the crystal clear water at Maaga restaurant, on the beach at Bluu, or  they can hop over to explore the many options available on the larger Bandos Resort less than a kilometre away.

Malahini’s sports and recreation centre serves as a gateway to the underwater delights that surround the islands, with ocean activities ranging from glass bottomed canoes that take advantage of the transparent waters, to para-sailing, jetskiing and fun-tubing for those seeking a little more adventure.
Excellent spa and gym facilities back on dry land ensure that the Maldives’ newest resort will be welcoming its first visitors again and again.
