Boutique hotel Huvafen Fushi was one of the Maldives’ pioneer hotels and still delivers.

Huvafen Fushi’s spa, LIME, has 6 over-water pavilions in addition to the world’s first underwater treatment rooms. Soft cushions evoke the tactile versions of the corals and sponges and the slow rhythmic flow of the water, punctuated by the spectral colors of tropical fish.
