There are plenty of hotel options that will ensure your stay in the Maldives is both memorable and comfortable. Keen to know where to stay? Let’s get you sorted!
Ataraxis Grand & Spa – Maldives Dive Resort
Situated on the northern part of Fuvahmulah, one of the key selling points is that it is one of the hotels nearest to the beach (only a short 2 – 3 minute walk!). The location of Ataraxis has given it a reputation for having the best beach and sunset views. To make your stay even more comfortable, guests have access to a rooftop jacuzzi, sauna, gym and a spa which is coming soon. Ataraxis prides itself in designing its space to be both relaxing and comforting which will make guests feel at home. Whatever guest experience you are looking for, you are guaranteed to find it at Ataraxis!
Maa Thundi – Dive Resorts in Maldives
Maa Thundi is another one of our highly recommended hotels for you to stay at. Like Ataraxis, it is situated in the northern part of Fuvahmulah. It is actually located only 100m away from Ataraxis! This means that the beach is easily accessible. Guests can also go for a swim on this wonderful hotel’s rooftop swimming pool. Maa Thundi Fuvahmulah is all about offering guests a beautiful hideaway that focuses on leisure and comfort. The space and rooms have been designed in a way that will allow you to feel like you are living in your own special world!
The unique selling points of Ataraxis and Maa Thundi that other hotels on the island have are that these two accommodations are located near the beach. In Fuvahmulah, for conservation purposes, accommodations are not located on the beachfront itself. A ring of coconut trees after the beach area have been designated by the local council as a green zone. Also, these two hotels are right next to Cool Banana, which is one of the most popular places on Fuvahmulah for food!
