Dreaming of a picture-perfect vacation? Set your gaze at Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi; it is the grandest beach escape you can gift yourself in the Maldives. By Team T+L
Across the Indian Ocean is the little slice of paradise—Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi. Tucked within the Shaviyani Atoll, the luxury resort is more than just a regular hideaway. It is a ‘secret water island’ to explore, and a resounding luxury to experience.
Sun-kissed, palm-fringed, and turquoise blue waters
Surrounded by the never-ending blues of the Indian Ocean, Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi—600-hectares of glistering waters, which is also home to thriving marine life—is perched on the largest resort lagoon in the Maldives. Offering a tropical escape and barefoot indulgences, the resort boasts of powdery white-sand beaches dotted with swaying palms, the Maldivian sun, the salty sea breeze, and a 200-metre infinity pool cutting across the island.
The waters around are a diving sanctuary where you can discover countless aquatic animals–from manta rays and turtles to bottlenose dolphins and over 250 species of tropical fish waiting to say, “hello.” When here, you can snorkel at leisure and discover the in-house reef, an ecosystem of rich marine life just strokes away from the resort’s private beach and water villas. Alternatively, you can join a sunset cruise aboard a private yacht or experience a wide array of exhilarating water sports.
Private space and comfort
The 120 luxury villas at Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi offer a seamless blend of Maldivian touch, courtesy champagne woods, coral-inspired rugs, and bamboo glass chandeliers.

Local Maldivian gastronomic fare
When here, you can enjoy local and international cuisines amid breathtaking views of the beach at Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi’s all-day dining restaurant, Raha Market. Walk a little bit further and discover Kata, an over-water Japanese restaurant offering a modern menu comprising of an array of sushi and sashimi appetisers freshly made from the chef’s counter; and robatayaki, a variety of seafood options cooked in mono styles.
Next, head over to Azure where fresh seafood and lobster tanks are displayed. Here, the culinary riches of the seas offer a spectacular seafront dining experience. The striking all-bamboo poolside bar, Onu Onu, is the throbbing social heart of the resort. Created by Balinese artisans, this laidback space is perfect for lounging over exotic drinks while basking in the sun with gorgeous views of the prime beachfront.
A tranquil escape and renewed wellness
Inspired by its surroundings, the renowned Willow Stream Spa draws on powers of natural elements to tailor treatments that soothe and heal the body, mind, and soul.

Pristine scenery enveloped by nature
The natural, untouched island of Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi forefronts activities that take care of the environment. Age-old and towering Banyan trees welcome guests at the beach villa, and coconut trees line up the shores of the secret water island.
