If you’re in need of a getaway, look no further than the glamorous Maldivian hideaway Huvafen Fushi. Here guests can immerse themselves in a world of luxury, marked by stunning seascapes and vibrant tropical reefs. This adults-only resort is a secluded paradise on North Malé Atoll, just 30 minutes by speedboat from the Malé international airport. At Huvafen Fushi, you’ll drift into a whole new level of relaxation with tempting plunge pools, an underwater spa and picture-perfect stretches of white sand.
The island includes modern villas with private pools and an underwater spa, as well as culinary experiences like contemporary Japanese cuisine with a Latin twist at Feeling Koi and drinks by mixologists from London’s PURL. Complimenting the mouth-watering cuisine lineup is alfresco Italian Forno, subterranean wine trove Vinum and relaxed deck dining at Celsius. For those looking to take their Maldives experience one step further, The PlayPen villa is the ultimate indulgence.
Marked by a truly unique design, The PlayPen is a clever mix of vintage nostalgia meets modern living. It features an eclectic collection of handpicked vintage decor for a stay that you’ll remember. Opened in early 2018, the two-storey, 800 sqm PlayPen starts from USD $16,800 per night, breakfast included, for a minimum four-night stay. A popular destination for romantic getaways, The PlayPen is perfect for couples looking for a luxury escape. This breathtaking resort will certainly impress even the pickiest traveller.
Upstairs, an open-plan bedroom/playroom features a centrepiece bed, oversized ocean view jacuzzi bath, steam room and sauna. A panoramic balcony looks over the floodlit black lava-stone infinity pool as the sun sets over the house reef.
A dramatic staircase leads down from the inner Playpen Chamber to the open plan living, lounge and dining areas, with a culinary gallery and cocktail bar for you to indulge. The glamorous Maldivian hideaway includes a Bang & Olufsen sound system and plasma TVs, as well as a bespoke intimate gift box from Maison Mika. You’ll find blissful relaxation out on the private deck- think daybeds, an outdoor shower and upon request, a romantic private 5-course dinner prepared by renown chef set at the pool gardens and the beach.
Those staying in the PlayPen arrive via Huvafen Fushi’s luxury Italian speedboat Veloce. A stay at the PlayPen includes CIP airport lounge arrangements at Velana International Airport for both arrival and departure. Once settled in the private paradise, guests can expect to be pampered 24/7 courtesy of the resort’s signature thakurus.
Enjoy a luxurious massage in PEARL – an underwater spa with stunning views of the coral reef. The new vitalisation spot features wet areas and steam and sauna rooms. Plus, you can relax amongst the marine life as it floats around you. PURE Massage takes inspiration from therapies and techniques from all around the world, with exclusive treatments from world-class facialist Teresa Tarmey. The new signature massage is the Dhimaali, a 90-minute treatment where guests are scrubbed with island sand and salt. Then, they are sent into the sea to rinse it off, leaving the skin feeling refreshed. There’s even a cushion filled relaxation room in the aquarium.
A new addition to the spa is RAW, a café specialising in organic food and fresh juices. There’s also UMBar, a laidback beach bar hangout, around the resort’s main infinity pool. Or you can book in at Vinum, the most formal dining option, an underground cellar home to more than 6000 bottles of international wine.
Guests will be delighted by the variety of activities available, each guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Snorkel, parasail or wakeboard in crystal clear waters if you’re the adventurous type. Or if you’re after something calmer, the resort’s luxury speedboat, Veloce, is available for rent. The traditional Maldivian dhoni can be booked privately to explore nearby reefs and spot marine life. No matter your personal needs, the crew are there around the clock to look after guests. Float around Lonu Veyo, a salt-water pool surrounded by the ocean.
Dine at the starlit Cardamom Lounge or at a table looking over the infinity pool. Enjoy a rich culinary experience on a private sandbank in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The rest of what you do is up to your imagination. If you’re after pure indulgence and luxury, then the PlayPen Villa at Huvafen Fushi is the ultimate choice.
