Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi bringing in a novel aspect of designer luxury in to the islands of the Maldives. As repetitive brand slogan as it sounds the resort definitely serves its uniqueness through may of its offering including the coralarium, world’s first underwater museum with unimaginably real sculptures which is just a 100 meters into the lagoon. An underwater photographer and a marine conservationist strikes the perfect balance between the art and marine life which truly makes Fairmont Maldives one of the most unique resorts in the Maldives. It will be a completely novel experience for the guests to snorkel amongst the art installations and witness a wide array of marine creatures would make this installation their habitat and home.

Located in the secluded Shaviyani Atoll a 45 minute se plane transfer away from the Male International Airport you will find this gem of a resort where from the beginning to the end you will be pampered to your heart’s desire and you will leave with a heart full of memories, an instant longing to come back to the Maldives and I guarantee the only downside to this adventure would be the major holiday withdrawal symptoms you will experience when you get back home.
This is not the only first for Sirru Fen Fushi. I get a sneak peek of what will be the island nation’s only tented jungle villas when they open at the end of May. Set amid dense foliage, the structure I see recalls an African safari-style tent; there’s an outdoor deck with a stand-alone bathtub, and a sizable private pool that would fit the whole family. Even guests who haven’t booked one of these will be able to arrange a “jungle cinema” experience at a vacant villa.And just when you though it can’t get any better, you find the luxury tented villas in amidst the lush vegetation of the island.cooking class with a very friendly and madly skilled chef and afterwards we were treated to a private underwater safari which was the cherry on top of our perfect tented villa experience.I had never experienced something more uniquely extraordinary We were served our sumptuous breakfast at the comfort of our villa and in the night we felt like we were in two destinations at the same time with the jungle safari which was very carefully organized followed by a private bon fire and entertainment transformed our entire stay to an authentic camping experience. The next day we took a cooking class with a very friendly and madly skilled chef and afterwards we were treated to a private underwater safari which was the cherry on top of our perfect tented villa experience.
"Glamping" - Camping & Glamour
Onu the fine dining restaurant is the highlight of all restaurants. It is certain to elevate the culinary experiences, but we were not sure if anything could top up the royalty experience we have had at the luxury tended villa. Raha which translates to the taste in Sanskrit and Sinhalese brings out the pure joy of dining in charming settings. Raha Market is the main restaurant where breakfast, lunch as well as dinner is served. With themed nights making our dinner extravagant we were served Chinese, Indian as well as beach BBQ making our dining experience a wholesome gastronomic delight. It is a must to try some of the local cuisine like their pita rottis which are called roshi with the signature Maldivian tuna salad – it was pleasantly comfortable and so deliciously paired with fresh coconut water that every bite makes you want more. Kata which is again translating to “mouth” would make you wonder what makes it ideal for their Teppanyaki. The settings were certainly jaw dropping facing the stunning sunsets of the Shaviyani atoll. To bring out the best of the menu we decided to pair the food with our choice of Sake.
