Description

Escape in True Tropical Style in the Maldives for Seven Days & Six Nights at The Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi for Two (Land Only)

Welcome to the Maldives, where sands are as bright as the smiles of the locals, where fish swim happily in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where the weather is a dream, and the deep rays of the sun wait to engulf you in its arms. Indulge in an inspirational Maldivian experience at The Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, a luxury all-villa resort that offers exactly what its name means - a secret water island! Set on a pristine stretch of soft white-sand beach overlooking an endless turquoise sea, this is the perfect opportunity to relax and rejuvenate in true tropical style.

The Maldives is known for its amazing underwater world and marine wildlife, and most visitors agree that as soon as they see the crystal clear waters of an island's lagoon and the colorful fish and corals, they can't resist giving snorkeling a try! For the energetic and adventurous, the Maldives is just as rewarding a destination as it is for the laidback sun worshiper or sophisticated epicure. With 99% of its territory being sea, the Maldives is one of the world's leading watersports hubs, with its environment of islands and turquoise blue waters forming the perfect combination for a natural watersports arena. The Maldives offers so much more than sand, sun and sea, as the islands are also blessed with a rich culture and heritage. A vacation in the Maldives is a chance to gain insight into this unique country, by exploring the charming island villages, sourcing local handicrafts, visiting heritage sites and the National Museum, tasting local cuisine, and watching cultural performances.

You can join a sunset dolphin cruise aboard the resort's own private yacht, release turtles into the water or even have a dedicated chef prepare a private BBQ under a canopy of stars. Take a refreshing dip in the 200-meter long swimming pool, reinvigorate your senses at the Willow Stream Spa, or allow your stunning surroundings to inspire you in the Art Studio, where you'll find all the tools and materials to paint, sculpt, or draw with or without instruction by a talented resident artist.

The sculptural museum in The Fairmont's private resort lagoon offers visitors a unique cultural eco-art attraction while establishing the foundations of an artificial reef to enhance and support the underwater ecosystem. The centerpiece will be the Coral Cube, the world's first semi-submerged art space, which serves as a portal to the underwater realm offering visitors ephemeral encounters with the natural beauty beneath the water's surface. The Coral Cube, a hybrid organic form in harmony with its surroundings, delivers an other-worldly experience that illustrates the connectivity of man with nature, a seamless link between the land and the ocean. Gently lit by night, this architectural highlight offers unique night snorkeling opportunities to explore Jason deCaires's captivating art. Guided tours will be conducted by a passionate team of marine biologists, are available daily and are complimentary for resort guests.

Your trip for two includes:
• 7 days/6 nights accommodations at The Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi in a king-bedded villa
• Daily complimentary breakfast
• All room-related taxes
