Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi opens in Maldives with Spa and Underwater Museum

The luxurious Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi has opened its doors to holidaymakers. The island retreat has 112 villas with private pools, and they offer views overlooking the turquoise sea.

Located in the island of Gaakoshibee in the northern Shaviyani Atoll in the North Maldives, the resort can be accessed via 50-minute seaplane ride from the main Velana International Airport in Male. The name “Sirru Fen Fushi” translates to “secret water island” in local Dhivehi language.

The upscale hotel also has the Willow Stream Spa, which has been inspired by the island’s natural elements: earth, wind, fire, wood, and water. The full-service wellness facility spans 2,000 square metres and features sea-view treatment and relaxation rooms, spa gardens for meditation, yoga sessions facing the sea, and a 50m serenity pool, enhanced with aromatherapy. Guests can also enjoy traditional Ayurveda experiences from Subtle Energies, and luxury skincare products from Kerstin Florian.

As well as luxury pool villas, the hotel has safari-style tented villas that sit within a star-lit grove. Additional villa options include Water Sunrise Villas, Three-bedroom Beach Sunset Villas, and Beach Sunrise Villas.

Facilities at the beachfront resort include three restaurants and a bar. These include the all-day dining Raha Market restaurant, KATA with Japanese cuisine and a rooftop bar, Onu Onu Bar, a Bamboo pool bar, and Azure with gourmet treats. There’s also a fitness centre with personal trainers, and yoga, Pilates, warrior workouts, and Thai boxing.

The property is also home to the first underwater sculpture museum in the Maldives which will feature a coral regeneration project. The museum will be created by renowned British artist Jason deCaires Taylor, who is one of the world’s "underwater naturalists". The world-famous sculptor, scuba diver, underwater photographer and conservationist has created several underwater museums around the world in a bid to lure divers away from natural coral reefs in popular scuba diving destinations so they can be replenished.

Fairmont Hotels and Resorts has been operating since 2011 and is owned by Accor Hotels. The hotel group operates a luxury collection of properties around the globe including The Plaza in New York, The Savoy in London, Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai and Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Québec City.
