Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi launches with coral project
The installation is Maldives’ first coral regeneration project created by celebrated underwater naturalist and artist Jason deCaires Taylor.
Located on the Shaviyani Atoll in North Maldives, the new property offers 120 luxury villas, each with a private pool. The all-villa resort features 200 meters of infinity pools as well as luxury safari-style tented villas nestled in the island’s lush interior jungle.
“We are thrilled to introduce the first Fairmont and our third development in the Maldives since our entry into this region in 2017,” said Patrick Basset, COO of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
“Fairmont guests feel like they are in the heart of the destination; and at our first Fairmont property in the Maldives, we are delighted to offer them the full Maldivian immersion with locally inspired design and indigenous cultural experiences, enhanced by Fairmont’s welcoming service and the destination’s fabled natural beauty.”
The nine kilometer-long house reef, directly accessible from the beach, is home to vibrant corals and a thriving ecosystem with a manta ray cleaning station offering guests a close and extended glimpse of the marine creatures.
The resort is accessible by domestic flight in 50 minutes from Male International Airport followed by speedboat from Hanimaadhoo Airport to the resort. Alternatively, guests can book a 50-minute scenic seaplane flight directly to the resort.
