Ifuru Island Maldives has made its debut on 23 September, promising an unexpected and luxurious experience.

Located in Raa Atoll, the resort has its own private airport, as well as Maldives’ first permanent skydiving drop zone.

The Sunset Beach Suites and Sunset Beach Villas offer direct access to the beach while its Sunset Beach Villas with Pool offer a private beachfront location with a pool and terrace.

Arranged as a series of ‘retreats’ and ‘villages’ – small coteries that perfectly balance seclusion and sociability – Ifuru Island’s accommodations also provides a host of exclusive resort-within-resort possibilities, making it ideal for milestone celebrations and multigenerational gatherings.

With its new ‘Exclusively Yours’ approach to premium 24-hour all-inclusive offerings, guests can truly relax knowing everything has been taken care of.

With six restaurants and four bars, guests can make the most of the all-inclusive, dine-around experience and embark on a culinary journey as they savour a range of dishes. Meticulously created by the resort’s talented chefs, the menus offer a harmonious fusion of local Maldivian ingredients and international flavours. Guests can choose to dine at one of two à la carte restaurants – The Waterfront, which serves fresh Asian dishes with an infusion of Mediterranean flavours and South American notes, and Palm Grill, a rustic grill steak house that also serves locally-caught fresh fish and vegan creations. 

The Social House is the hub of the island, bringing guests together and delivering an impressive menu that combines the best dishes from around the world. The Hubba Hubba Bar is the place to go for upbeat vibes and light cocktails, while Pool Side offers a selection of exceptional pizza by the metre while The Beach Club provides a boho beach atmosphere.

To make every moment unforgettable, challenge the ordinary and awaken the spirit of adventure, the resort offers a range of adrenaline pumping activities for guests. The resort has collaborated with World Champion skydiver Will Penny to create the Maldives’ first permanent skydiving drop zone. Between early November and the end of March, guests can take to the sky before enjoying a captivating skydive over the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. 

Those who prefer to take to the water itself can enjoy a surf, water sports or a dive with the sharks that call these beautiful waters home.

For those seeking a gentler pace, Ifuru Island offers a range of excursions and experiences including dolphin watching, sunset cruises, island hopping, cultural immersions, stargazing and serene snorkels below the waves to witness the region’s stunning marine life.

Guests who want to get active on land won’t be disappointed either, as the resort offers a range of facilities, including a Night Tennis & Multi Court and a 24-hour fitness centre. Younger guests can let their imaginations soar at the Coconut Kids Club and Little Explorers Club.

“For friends, families and groups seeking a retreat that forges bonds as much as cherished memories, Ifuru Island Maldives is the perfect destination,” the resort said. 

“Ifuru Island is committed to infusing magic into every moment by transcending expectations, elevating the awe-inspiring beauty of the island and delivering warm hospitality at every opportunity, creating endless opportunities for guests to discover their perfect holiday.”
