Medhufushi is one of only two resorts in the virtually untouched atoll of Meemu. Divers and snorkellers can discover a world of underwater beauty and for non-divers there is a host of activities, both in water and on land.

A beautiful resort in an unspoilt atoll, Medhufushi promises excellent facilities and accommodation combined with a friendly service, good cuisine and a relaxing atmosphere. Accommodation is in traditional Maldivian style villas with elegantly designed rooms of natural timber, blending well with the surroundings. This elongated island is fringed with dazzling white sandy beaches and the greatest care has been taken to develop it with as little disturbance as possible to the environment. The untouched tropical vegetation including palm trees, rubber plants and mangroves, provides welcome shade.

The Beach Villa Suites are similar to the Beach Villas but have the advantage of an inter-connecting door, making them ideal for friends and families.

All rooms are air conditioned and have flat screen TV, DVD player, IDD telephone and wi-fi, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities, mini-bar and personal safe.

Restaurants

Professional and experienced chefs provide an international cuisine of the highest quality and richest variety. There are two restaurants and two bars. The main restaurant, Malafaiy, is located beside the pool area overlooking the lagoon and serves buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner with culinary influences from around the world. Alfresco Restaurant at the pavillion serves a wide range of drinks and a la carte specialities in an open air setting with a view of the wonderful sunsets. The Vilu Bar is built over the lagoon, offering spectacular beach and ocean views. A wide selection of drinks and cocktails is available as well as snacks. Gourmet menus can be provided for those celebrating a special occasion and these can either be served on the beach or at the sunset pavillion on request.

Excursions & Entertainment

There is a variety of excursions offered by Medhufushi which includes sunset and morning fishing, deep sea fishing, island hopping, dolphin watch safaris, snorkelling and honeymoon excursions. There is a well equipped gym, beach volleyball, table tennis and billiards, while water sports enthusiasts can enjoy windsurfing, catamaran sailing, knee boarding, kayaking, canoeing, fun tubes, mono skiing and kite surfing. Meemu Atoll is also a surfing paradise with many locations within a short distance of each other and waves that will accommodate every level of surfing. Medhufushi Spa is built directly over the lagoon and offers many types of body massage, beauty treatments and hand and foot care. The choice of relaxing or invigorating blends using pure essential oils makes this an ideal experience for complete relaxation.

Diving

The new and spacious diving centre has been designed to meet every possible need of scuba divers. The school is generously equipped to the highest standards and PADI diving courses are continually offered throughout the year. In front of the diving school, the soft white sand of the lagoon slopes down to six metres, making it ideal for beginners and dive courses. For experienced divers there are between two and three diving boats offering daily morning and afternoon departures to the dive sites, many of which are situated within the atoll. Night diving by boat is also offered once or twice a week and trips are available to take divers to the spectacular channel sites to the west of the atoll. With around 30 different dive sites and only two resorts in this atoll, Medhufushi provides superb diving including the renowned sites Mantas & More, the Big Cave and Medhufushi Thila. Mantas and More is a site where, from May to December, manta rays can regularly be spotted with their offspring busying themselves around the numerous cleaning stations. It is not uncommon to see 8-9 manta swoop gracefully in the blue, together with numerous mobula and eagle rays. The Big Cave is located within the Maldivian Marine Park and the whole dive leads through a cavern which is approximately 10 metres high and at a depth of 15 - 30 metres. Inside of the cavern are numerous beautiful soft corals, gorgonian fans and assorted anemones. Medhufushi Thila is situated between 2 wide lagoons where dolphins often accompany you to start your dive. The thila itself is covered in colourful hard corals and the many caves and overhangs are home to countless reef fish. With regular sightings of reef sharks, tuna, mantas, whalesharks and huge schools of trevallies this is a spectacular dive for all levels of diver.
