Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi
Best Experience: Couples, Families, Value, All Inclusive, Activities, Surfing
Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi is a solid 4-star, a mid-range all inclusive resort, very popular in the Maldives, because it provides the basis for a great price, plus it can offer several of its own unusual features.
Located in North Male atoll, 30 km from Male Airport, only a few resorts have as many water sports options as Hudhuranfushi. And also there is table tennis and volleyball, you can play football, tennis, badminton and squash. Along with the usual choice of water sports, for surfers there is a good opportunity to catch a big wave.
Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, under the calming sway of coconut groves, guests will enjoy an extensive selection of facilities. These can be found throughout the island along a series of sandy pathways each one leading down to the pristine beach at the water's edge. Aside from relaxing under the sun, there's the spa to unwind in and the island's lagoon also provides some wonderful snorkelling opportunities. When a hotel's name translates to 'Island of white gold' you can be certain that from sunrise to sunset, you'll find everything you need for a superb getaway.
Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi is set in 83 acres of lush tropical beach property near Kani Beach on Lhohifushi Island, the resort’s design enables it to blend into its surroundings creating a tranquil aura around it. DOWNLOAD RESORT MAP
However, this island does not always have excellent beaches. The western side, facing into the atoll, boasts a decent beach with a series of breakwaters, while on the east side, overlooking the ocean there are several beaches and many coral stones. Most people, for obvious reasons, prefer the beaches of the lagoon, but some like to enjoy the peace and seclusion on the ocean. It is on this side that the surfers are hanging out, waiting for the perfect breaks.
Hudhuranfushi is conveniently situated in North Male Atoll, just 19 kms from the Velana int airport; a speedboat covers this distance in a mere 30 minutes. Visitors who choose to stay at Hudhuranfushi will enjoy easy access to local landmarks such as the National Museum, Grand Friday Mosque and the Presidential Palace which may be visited after returning to Male prior to departure.
Located on the stunning white sands of Lhohifushi Island, the Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi promises the ultimate holiday, a perfect and peaceful escape to paradise. Snorkeling and scuba diving in the hotel reef and neighbouring world-class dive sites at Hudhuranfushi will open your eyes to the tiers of multi coloured corals and schools of small fish. Such thrilling underwater excursions in the Maldives also give you the chance to view graceful stingrays that elegantly glide through the water and sleek sharks that prowl the seabed.
Speed boats have become the transport option of choice for commuters to Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi. A wide variety is available, from impressive speedboats to more economical vessels for the traveller on a budget. The transfer from the International Airport will take approximately 30 minutes.
The 165 air conditioned villas are equipped with contemporary amenities, elegant furnishings and décor complimented by tropical themes. Relatively large island, Hudhuranfushi easily accommodates 137 beach villas with panoramic views of the beach. And being a mature island, with lush tropical vegetation, guests are guaranteed a good privacy between the rooms.
Beach Villas are located along the sandy outline of the atoll; they feature a private terrace offering easy access to the sea beyond the palm grove. They have been decorated with a fresh and modern feel and are equipped with a variety of amenities such as an open air outdoor shower with a bath tub. Other facilities include air conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, tea/coffee maker, in room safe and a mini bar is available at a fee.
37 Prestige Ocean Villas are large, well-equipped and modern, with thatched roofs. With modern amenities and a private sun deck with 24 hour access to the surrounding ocean, they feature a significant step up from the Beach Villas, which are certainly adequate, but slightly worn around the edges.
Just like the beach rooms, the over-water rooms either face east or west but as neither is quieter or more private than the other (unlike the beach rooms), the ideal is to get a sunset facing room. The over-water rooms also have their own restaurant and bar, which is great. But everyone shares the one swimming pool and that’s not great as it is not in very good condition.
Restaurants and Bars
Adaaran Select Huduranfushi boasts a multi faceted dining experience at its Maldives Hotel Restaurants with spectacular views accompanying almost every meal. Your all inclusive package includes: Breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks, selected local drinks by the glass including draught beer, wine, selected cocktails & spirits, selected soft drinks, mineral water and tea/coffee.

Having indicated a few less positive aspects to the resort, it is only fair to say that it does deliver a great holiday to just about all the people who go there. The price is key, as long as you are aware of what is and is not included in the all-inclusive package.
