Home to the longest infinity pool in the Maldives.

Referred to by locals as “Our Secret Water Island”, this 1.5km long and 600m wide, lush private island lies within a huge 600-hectare, glistening lagoon. It is an entirely natural island, with palm fringed creamy white beaches, in a remote hideaway position providing never ending, untouched turquoise water horizon views. The central infinity is the longest swimming pool in the Maldives. It spans the central width of the island and leads out to the “Coralarium” – a semi submerged art installation created by British artist, Jason Declaires Taylor, which showcases a collection of sculptures and other cultural art pieces and acts as a man-made reef supporting the local ecosystem.
Resort décor is consistent throughout; muted champagne materials echo the surrounding natural beaches that encircle the island, while buildings are unobtrusive, harmonising beautifully with their island location.

If you are wanting to stay active it couldn’t be easier. There’s plenty to fill your itinerary. Book yourself in for an authentic Maldivian cooking class, call into the designated art studio for painting classes or visit a nearby Maldivian community or sail to an uninhabited island for a castaway picnic. There’s tennis, beach volleyball, yoga and a fully equipped fitness centre. Discover a range of water-based activities; including kayaking, catamaran sailing, jet ski hire and water skiing. Scuba dive or snorkel on the 9km house reef, meet manta rays, black-tip sharks and hawksbill turtles or embark on a sunset dolphin cruise. Guided daily tours to the Coralarium, conducted by the hotel’s passionate team of marine biologists can be arranged as well as unique night snorkelling opportunities to explore the submerged art space.
For the younger guests there’s a play garden and shallow pools. The indoor play area lies just across from an airy art studio, where children can paint and craft. The Kids and Teens Clubs provide a weekly programme of fun and enriching activities and the “Teen Hub” is a great area for the older kids to hang out, with pool tables and video games.
The island also has its own “Sustainability Lab” which is housed in former shipping containers. The resort is working with the Maldivian government to sweep the waters of litter (think bottle tops and tangled fishing nets), turning trash into souvenir treasure. Guests can join in making their own eco-masterpieces or simply help the project by buying a souvenir made from the recycled plastic. Best of all, the Lab also transforms plastic waste into classroom equipment to give back to local schools and promotes the necessity of recycling and ocean conservation.
Sirru Fen Fushi and its laid-back tropical charm offers the ultimate Maldivian experience, perfect for the romantic getaway to a family vacation. There is enough to amuse for a longer stay, small enough to feel suitably intimate and offers attention to detail without pretension.
