The independently owned, private retreat Ifuru Island Maldives — a new luxury private sanctuary in the Maldives — opened on September 23, 2023.
Set within the serene Raa Atoll, Ifuru Island Maldives is a privately owned island getaway that offers seclusion and beauty. With a commitment to creating a vibrant and social ambiance, the resort is firmly built upon four core principles: social interaction, entertainment, lifestyle enhancement, and exceptional value.
Set in the beautiful Raa Atoll, Ifuru Island will offer the first permanent skydiving dropzone in the Maldives, sunset views from every room, and its own private airport.
The resort will also feature an abundance of amenities and experiences, including a thoughtful selection of bars and restaurants; Xanadu Spa; skydiving over the ocean and diving with sharks. The resort also boasts an ‘Exclusively Yours’ approach to premium 24-hour all-inclusive offerings, so guests can be certain that everything has been taken care of.
All of the 147 beach suites and villas will offer stunning sunset views and contemporary interiors, outdoor spaces, and lots of natural light. Guests with a Sunset Beach Suite or Sunset Beach Villa can also enjoy direct access to the white sandy beach and glistening turquoise waters. For a truly elevated experience, the Sunset Beach Villas with Pool offer a private beachfront location with a personal pool and stunning terrace.
Arranged as a series of ‘Retreats’ and ‘Villages’ – small hubs that perfectly balance seclusion and sociability – Ifuru Island’s accommodation provides a host of exclusive resort-within-resort possibilities, making it ideal for milestone celebrations and multi generational gatherings.
With six restaurants and four bars, visitors may take full advantage of the all-inclusive dining experience and take part in a gastronomic adventure while savouring a variety of dishes. The resort’s experienced chefs carefully crafted the menus, which offer a harmonic combination of regional Maldivian foods and foreign cuisines. The Waterfront, which serves fresh Asian dishes with a blend 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 to tantalize tastebuds, are the two à la carte restaurants that are available to guests.
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. 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 and The Beach Club provides a boho beach atmosphere.
The resort also offers a range of adrenaline-fueled activities. Making the exhilarating most of its very own private airport, Ifuru Island has teamed up with 21k-jump World Champion skydiver Will Penny to create the Maldives’ first permanent skydiving dropzone. Between the beginning of 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 plunge below the water can enjoy a surf or a dive with several species of sharks.
For those seeking a gentler pace, Ifuru Island Maldives 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 wanting to get active on land won’t be disappointed either, as the resort offers a range of facilities, including water sports, tennis and a 24-hour fitness centre. Younger guests will love to immerse themselves in the wonders of the Maldives at the Coconut Kids Club and Little Explorers Club. Ifuru Island aims to exceed expectations and provide warm hospitality at every turn.
Note that the resort has a promotion offering 50 percent off stays until 23 December 2023.
