The name Sirru Fen Fushi means “secret water island”, but the secret’s out – this all-villa resort has one of the Maldives’ largest resort lagoons. The property is a 55-minute seaplane from Male, but its remote location also means the atoll remains pristine; the house reef even hosts a manta ray cleaning station. Local cultural and island tours give guests a taste into the Maldivian way of life, while dolphin watching tours and overnight cruises capture the beauty of the remote destination.
