Immerse in Maldivian Culture at Fushifaru Maldives

Located on the eastern fringe of Lhaviyani Atoll and just a 35 minute Seaplane ride away, sits Fushifaru Maldives - an exquisite little island between two channels connecting the atoll’s inner lagoon to the outer sea, whilst a large sand bank lies on one side.

Fushifaru Maldives made waves in Maldives by welcoming guests to the island with the blowing of the Sangu or Sea Conch (a significant aspect of Maldivian cultural history, the Sangu was traditionally used by village elders to call the community to attention for important announcements), thus marking the first of a collection of indigenous Maldivian experiences available at the resort.

At Fushifaru, you can learn to climb a Coconut Tree at the Coconut Tree Climbing Masterclass – a solid 99 minutes of laughter-filled bonding with one of the many beautiful coconut trees on the island, all supervised by an experienced member of the recreation team.

For guests who are more musically inclined, Fushifaru’s Boduberu Beat session gives them a chance to try their hand at playing the boduberu drum made traditionally from the trunk of the coconut tree. This traditional Maldivian instrument bears influence from the music in East and Southwest Africa that was brought to the islands by sailors from the Indian Ocean around the 11th century. Starting first with steady rhythms before gaining tempo and reaching a loud, festive and exhilarating crescendo that is referred to as “vibrating the island”, the session also features dancers who will accompany guests by jumping, swaying and singing along to the music.

For gastronomes and those curious about the culinary arts of the local islands, the resort offers a hands-on Maldivian Cooking Class on Maldivian Tuna Curry, Mashuni – a staple Maldivian salad of tuna flakes, chopped onions, tomatoes, chilli and a sprinkle of lime, accompanied by steaming hot Roshi – Maldivian flat bread.

Merging Maldivian design and architecture with modern aesthetics, Fushifaru Maldives offers accommodation on both land and water.Guests have an option of dining at Korakali for International cuisine, Raakani for signature Asian recipes with a focus on the finest local varieties of seafood and Fanihandhi Bar for pool side snacks and sunset cocktails. Heylhi Spa - a wellness sanctuary will sooth any tired soul whilst the multi-sports court and various exciting water activities keeps guests vibrant with energy.

A combination of quintessential Maldivian design with modern aesthetics in its 49 beach and water villas; Fushifaru Maldives is an ideal escape for adventurers, conservationists and traditionalists.
