A sensory awakening Huvafen Fushi opens a new chapter in its history. In 2017 the iconic resort reported no longer being part of PER AQUUM Hotels & Resorts portfolio and re-launching itself as a standalone brand. Huvafen Fushi has returned to the loving arms of many of the original team behind its launch – from former GM Mark Hehir to veteran Maldives F&B guru and star sommelier Sunny Chuang. Mark Hehir, the current CEO & Curator of The Small Maldives Island Co. which has in its portfolio already two successful properties – Amilla Fushi and Finolhu, has taken up the reins of Huvafen Fushi, considered a groundbreaker in the Maldivian hospitality industry, once again. A legendary sommelier Sunny Chuang returns to his no less legendary former cellars as Director of F&B. The new GM is Jean-Christophe Nager, formerly GM of Soneva Gili and Phuket Pavilions, supported by current resort manager Ahmed Jihad. From 2018 onwards Huvawen Fushi will become adults only resort.
Seductive allure, distinctive vibe, sensual indulgences to the rhythm of stylish melodies, total discretion – Huvafen Fushi invites to explore a new concept of elite adult-only vacation experience. Located on a secluded private island of Atoll North Male in the midst of the Indian Ocean, Huvafen Fushi reputed to push boundaries and to offer ‘money can’t buy’ experiences is considered one of the best hotels in Maldives and in the world.
