AAA Hotels & Resorts are pleased to announce that the reconstruction and renovation of the luxury Maldivian resort Medhufushi will be completed by 15th January 2007.
As before, Medhufushi will be a five-star retreat, 130 km from the capital Male (40 min by seaplane). Before closing, the resort was renowned for the luxurious yet soothing water villas, outstanding opportunities for relaxation, coupled with warm hospitality and fresh, contemporary Fusion cuisine. The revamped Medhufushi will offer the same ambience and so hopes to regain its share of the UK market.
Recreating Medhufushi as an idyllic barefoot-luxury island resort will include a re- design of the 44 Water Villas and two Honeymoon Water Villas. The 58 Beach Villas and seven two-bedroom Beach Villa Suites will also receive a new look in terms of soft furnishings. Features are to include four-poster beds, semi-open bathrooms for alfresco showers and wooden sundecks with direct beach access.
Resort facilities will include two restaurants and a bar, all with lagoon views, a luxury Maldivian-styled over-water spa as well as a watersports centre offering both motorised and non-motorised water sports. Werner Lau operates the dive centres on all AAA Hotels & Resorts and will reopen services on Medhufushi. These centres offer beginners to advanced PADI dive courses as well as CMAS advanced and other speciality courses.
Vice President of AAA Hotels & Resorts, Mr. Ali Shiyam says “The ‘new’ Medhufushi will maintain the ‘old’ charm and relaxed atmosphere and will be a tribute to tranquillity which is what our guests enjoyed in the past. We would like to thank our guests for their support over the years and the patience they have shown during the reconstruction. We look forward to welcoming them back to the Resort.”
AAA Hotels & Resorts also own and manage the four-star deluxe Filitheyo Island Resort, the only resort on Faafu Atoll. Further developments are underway with two new five star deluxe resorts of approximately 100 Villas each, located on the northern atolls of the Maldives.
