Experience the Beauty of the Shaviyani Atoll with Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi

Located in the Shaviyani Atoll, arguably one of the archipelago’s most unspoiled isles, and home to the country's largest resort lagoon, Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi is pure paradise. Covering an area of more than 1,400 square miles, southwest of Sri Lanka, Shaviyani is a natural coral atoll formation, comprising 51 islands of which 16 are inhabited. Poster white sand beaches are fringed with swaying palms and kissed by turquoise waters of the resort’s 600-hectare lagoon. A place of rich marine biodiversity, Shaviyani is home to more than 400 species of wildlife, from colourful clownfish, dolphins and manta rays to grey reef sharks and sea turtles that opt to lay their eggs on its pristine beaches. Uniquely secluded, the atoll offers a truly authentic Maldivian experience and is only home to a few properties, undisturbed by developments in the wider region.

Inviting guests to explore the rich marine life, Fairmont Maldives boasts an array of underwater adventures; with over 20 dive sites and a 9 km-long house reef, directly accessible from the beach, the resort offers the ultimate diving and snorkelling experience. Travellers of all ages can join the resident marine biologist to monitor critically endangered Hawksbill Turtles, take a boat into the deep lagoon to spot playful dolphins or explore the archipelago’s first and only coral regeneration project and underwater art installation – the Coralarium. Those who prefer to venture on foot can amble through the island’s rich foliage, home to magnificent sea and land birds and unique tropical plants. The new safari-style beach tented villas are the perfect choice for travellers seeking a conscious castaway this season. Surrounded by the lush tropical jungle, steps away from the powder- white sands, guests can enjoy private cinema screenings, wellness treatments and seafood BBQ’s under the stars.
