Villas are simple, well-made thatched wooden bungalows. Inside they have a carefree spirit, with natural materials, giant travel chests for wardrobes and beachcomber-inspired fittings, in forms that resemble waves or shells. A Mac mini hidden inside a mother-of-pearl desk brings things up-to-date. The large decking that stretches out on stilts over the sea has steps down into the shallow lagoon below for snorkelling. Senior water villas are larger, with more space for dressing, and can accommodate a spare bed. Beach villas are a good, more affordable choice, with front terraces that lead onto the sand, made private by palms and bushes. They can also be connected, for families.

Pure white color, and furniture with rounded shapes in the rooms make these intimate alcoves absolutely perfect. Water villas (Senior water villa) - the top of ultra-luxury: a delightful oval bath set right over the water! Never seen, even in the Maldives..
Are you bouncing between the beach and over water? The best option for water villas is the rooms from 30-35, which are at the beginning of the jetty, with easy access to the beach on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other. Going crazy from the beach is best in villas 17-25 from which you can see the sparkling white sand, and where beach volleyball and Totem Bar are almost on your doorstep. If you want more privacy, you need to book Senior Water Villa 78 or 79, as the most private, at the far end of the jetty; romantic sunsets are best seen from water villas with rooms from 101 to 137, or Senior Water Villa from 50 to 78.
Tucked away not far from the spa, the beautiful Constance Moofushi's swimming pool ideally wraps around the shape of the beach that provides a breathtaking view from all sun loungers. The best views from the sun loungers on the platform, where you can climb with a path behind the pool. If the pictures of "floating" (splashing) bodies aroused your appetite, Totem bar in the neighborhood serves snacks and drinks..
Restaurants and Bars
Enjoy relaxed dining offered at a number of fabulous locations around Moofushi. The dining theme in Constance Moofushi continues in two restaurants: Manta's "foot-in-the-sand" and Alizée. The price for a stay of seven nights includes one dinner for two in Alizee (two suppers if you stay longer); the all inclusive package includes full meals in Manta and as much food in Totem as you can eat.
Interaction between chefs and guests will be one of the top priorities at the buffet from wood-fired crispy pizza to Maldivian specialties. Manta restaurant with a carpet of sand and a mobile sculpture from sea shells hangs from the ceiling over a buffet: expect daily changing thematic dinners (Mexican cuisine on Mondays, Mediterranean on Tuesdays, Wednesday on the table India and Sri Lanka, etc.) with an impressive variety of delicious fare (a friendly sommelier will help supplement your selection with wines from the world's best vineyards). It is hard to fathom quite how British head-chef Stephen manages to produce the variety of dishes, grills and confectionary to such high standards each day. The pastries, delicate tarts and pastel sponge cakes – baked fresh every day – were a particular highlight. The staff is smiling and charming, and will help make your holiday magical, in brackets.
In Manta: the best table on the overwater deck where at breakfasts or dinners you can spy on the fish of the color of precious stones, and gray reef sharks patrolling the waters below you.
Features a very casual and relax setting in a few meters from the sea on white sandy beaches, Alizee is a smaller and more romantic restaurant with ocean waves music and tables set right on the beach and a very tempting a la carte “Beach grill” menu (40 covers): scallops with Serrano ham and leek roasted in oil, or the sharp Maldives reef fish should catch your sight. Do not turn your back on the grilled lobster (extra US $ 40, but no longer worth it). The best table in Alizee: grab a lighted candle on the beach and enjoy the supper crunching with a soft, sand-like sand between your toes.
In 2019 Alizée Restaurant at Constance Moofushi has rolled out a new menu. Part of the resort’s all-inclusive package, the new menu embraces the different specialities of the native countries of its team members.

In the evening, the beach grill serves a vast selection of seafood dishes, amongst other specialties.
Enjoy the food in Jahaz, a restaurant in the sister hotel of Constance Halaveli. Dinner is a generous buffet with different themes every evening. Other dining options in Halaveli include: Meeru restaurant with 10 tables and a delicious meat or fish grill, and romantic Jing - is halfway down to the pier where in a stunningly beautiful, turquoise-colored and dark dining room you are waited with truly unforgettable culinary adventure.
Drink for your holiday in a relaxed atmosphere of Totem bar which looks not nearly worse than a reggae beach bar in Goa. The bar is situated right on the beach behind the pool and under a heavy canopy of indigenous trees, and features ethnic decoration carved out of drift wood. Whenever the heat of the Maldivian sun gets overwhelming, the beach bar is the right place to enjoy a fresh fruit smoothie, or choose from a menu of freshly brewed iced teas. Snack menu is served for lunch and in the afternoon. This bar is also one of the most romantic places to be for a sundowner on the beach.
Located next to the main restaurant, the main bar has a lively, tropical and friendly atmosphere with sand floor open areas. In Manta bar DJ Sanjeeva will keep you on the dance floor under the disco ball late into the night. Lemonade Moofushi Nasta (homemade lemon-ginger marmalade with whiskey, fresh mint and cucumber) or ice cold tropical Bellini should give you a charge of energy for the whole night.
If the nightlife and the hookah - not your forte - try a night diving.
Totem refreshes guests from 10:00 to 23:30; Manta bar remains open until 00:30. Alizee stops service at 22:00; Manta restaurant continues to feed the most hungry guests until 22:30.
