Amilla Fushi March 2018

Message from the Resort Manager

JN photoDearest Islanders,

I would like to convey my heartfelt gratitude to everyone for all your effort and achievement towards delivering rich experiences for our guests in March. Although a busy month with some challenges, we have managed to close some of the gaps to reach a good occupancy for the Easter Weekend.

You are always such a valued contributor and I really appreciate your support in every way as we work altogether to move into the next phase with our growing business.

The guest feedback remains very positive and it’s rewarding to see so many of you, being highlighted by our guests for your personalised attention and care. BIG THANK YOU!

A note of appreciation also goes to all of you who dedicate themselves for the community, supporting the Roohu activities, as one family.

Once again, thank you for all your tireless effort in putting together a wonderful calendar of activities for Easter.

Let’s all celebrate the success!

With warm regards,

Jean Noël
Resort Manager

A Fire Awareness Training sessions were conducted last March 16-17, 2018 with the help and assistance of Global Fire Maldives.

There were 51 Islanders certified after completing this training.

Thank you to all the participants and Global Fire Maldives. This is hugely beneficial to  Islanders and the company as a whole so as to provide and respond safely and effectively in the event of a fire.

Amilla Futsal Team participated in the recent Baa Atoll Unity Futsal Challenge 2018 that was held in Eydhafushi Island. The Team was able to reach the Quarter Final.

Everyone is looking forward to participate in the next Futsal Tournament, not just in Baa Atoll but being involved in the main Maldives tournament.

This will be a good opportunity for Amilla Fushi to highlight its Islander’s sports abilities.


Island Cleaning

On March 13, 15, 21 and 26 were important days in becoming a more responsible Islander. Amilla Fushi organised a series of island cleaning days so as to find ways to make the Islander’s Village a better place to live.

Everyone has a lifetime commitment to maintain the cleanliness and order of our home island because we believe that a clean place is a safe place to work.

You are invited to join our next island cleaning in April. See you!


Sunset Fishing

We took a trip to the Indian Ocean and organized a Sunset Fishing activity for our Islanders. Fishing is known to be a rewarding activity that is very popular amongst many of the Islander. Sunset fishing is one of the most adventurous things to do if you are keen on fishing in general.

Our Islanders really enjoyed this activity, as they were able to catch several types of fish from the ocean. At the end of the night we had a great BBQ Dinner back on the island.

Take a look on how our Islanders were beaming from ear to ear wearing their smiles.

International Women’s Day Celebration

On 8th March, we celebrated International Women’s Day by organising a Pool Party for all our female Islanders.

Everyone who joined this occasion had a good time. Our empowered women shared their inspiring life stories and their life challenges made them independent women in this new generation.

We would like to thank our Food and Beverage Team for their delicious meals and serving drinks.

Thank you for making our female islanders extra special! Until next year!

Amilla Fushi

Why here: Since opening in 2015, Amilla Fushi has been a true disruptor of the traditional Maldives experience and an indulgent island home from home for discerning jet-setters with an eye for the avant-garde. With its clean, contemporary architecture, thoughtful service and witty attention to detail, the resort – located in the UNESCO Biosphere of Baa Atoll, just 30 minutes by seaplane from Malé International – has put the Maldives on the map as a destination not just for couples, but for families and groups of friends. Literally translating as ‘My Island Home’, Amilla Fushi effortlessly conjures a luxurious ‘homecoming’ feeling for first timers and old friends alike.

Who goes there: Couples, families and groups of friends
. Offering a choice of 67 Miami-meets-Maldives Island Homes and Residences that hover over the crystal clear lagoon, nestle among lush treetops or hug the shores of pristine white sand, Amilla Fushi is home to more purpose-designed houses of two or more bedrooms with interconnecting rooms than any other Maldives resort, providing total peace of mind for parents.

The Spa Guide 2017

Activities: HUB by Dive Butler, water sports and other leisure activities, Amilla Fushi has its own house reef, The Blue Hole dive and snorkelling site, and all non-motorised watersports (excluding diving) are part of the Amilla experience and can be participated in at no extra charge. Amilla has also partnered with Dive Butler International to create the Home of the Underwater Biosphere (HUB), providing a wide selection of water-based activities around Baa Atoll, including pioneering ‘Rendezvous’ diving experiences and courses for novices or experienced divers alike.

There is also the Jim Courier Tennis centre, located nearby the residences, featuring two floodlit tennis courts, with tennis pros from Jim Courier Tennis JCT available to coach on request.

What’s my room like: Spacious one and two-bed Beach, Ocean Reef, Ocean Lagoon and Lagoon Houses; Wellness Tree Houses by Bodyism that are 12 metres up in the jungle canopy; ranging between 200 and 600 square metres and all have their own large pool. For VVIP families and parties seeking the ultimate in space and privacy, eight four- to eight-bedroom Beach Residences are also available to book – and indeed to purchase – on request (POA for seriously interested buyers).

Best dish: Fringing the freeform pool at Amilla’s sociable heart, chilled-out foodie hub bazaar brings together a diverse array of carefully curated food and drinks to suit every mood and occasion – you can choose from Wok, Fresh, Grill and Joe’s Pizza, or even British seaside treat at the shore-side Fish & Chip Shop.

Signature restaurant Feeling Koi is a modern Japanese hotspot with the cool 1 OAK Sunset Lounge and cocktail bar. You can also stock up for beach BBQs and picnics at the gourmet café-deli The Emperor General Store or taste fine wines and artisanal cheeses at The Wine Shop & Cellar Door – and a ‘Home Delivery’ service is available from all the island’s restaurants.

Star spa treatment: Javvu Spa has worked on treatments created in partnership with high profile brands such as Bodyism, Pure Massage, ila, Gentleman’s Tonic, QMS and Louise Galvin. The exclusive partnership with Bodyism brings James Duigan’s ‘Clean and Lean’ philosophy to island guests in a typically special and unique way; Wellness Tree Houses are private one-bedroom spa ‘nests’ with their own dedicated treatment suites, high in the treetops, where guests can enjoy a uniquely personal, inclusive wellness experience delivered by Bodyism Performance Specialists; personal training, Bodyism classes and sessions; and The Island Café by Clean and Lean.

TOP TIP: Any fish you catch can be taken back to the resort and cooked in the restaurant to your chosen recipe.

Double room rate: US$1,250 per night, based on two adults sharing a one-bedroom Lagoon House including breakfast (excludes tax and service).
