Island Luxury Fulhadhoo Boutique Hotel

Island Luxury by Secret Paradise takes budget travel in Maldives to a new level with opening its first local island property on Baa Fulhadhoo, with the aim of offering authentic local island experiences and to set an industry example of community-inclusiveness at its fullest meaning.

Island Luxury Fulhadhoo Boutique Hotel offers 4 spacious pool view rooms with open air bathrooms on the upper floor, 2 garden rooms with 2 standard rooms located on the ground floor. Positioned within a coconut palm grove and a few steps from the ocean, Island Luxury provides an idyllic island getaway. 

Island Luxury believes it is people who transform a holiday into an unforgettable experience and this is why the local community of Fulhadhoo is at the heart of their business. From the skilled local carpenters who have hand crafted the Boutique Hotel, to the nimble fingered seamstresses who have designed and made uniforms and pieces of soft furnishings. From the Maldivian chef, gardeners and cleaners to the captain and crew on the private sailing yacht SY Island Luxury. From their trained team of private Thakuru/Kamana - Island Luxury signature butlers, who will make every dream a possibility to their team of local hosts who will share the secrets of their island home.  

The island's Women's Development Committee provide local ladies employment opportunities to support in-house laundry services, bake cakes, pastries and hedhikaa and organize a weekly food festival; a venue where guests and local families  can interact and engage over tastes of the Maldives.

Island Luxury Fulhadhoo has been built and developed by Ziyad Mohamed, Co-Founder of Secret Paradise Maldives. Secret Paradise Maldives is an award winning sustainable and educational guided tour company based in Hulhumale. Their values of bringing tourists and local communities together as well as promoting sustainable travel and education is the inspiration behind the development of Island Luxury Fulhadhoo. Ziyad proudly states that 95% of the team are youth from the island of Fulhadhoo who completed an in house hospitality program during 2021 and that all but 2 members of the 25 strong team are all Maldivian. 

"One of our recent guests sums up exactly what we are about," said Ziyad. "The team are wonderful people who provided, not only perfect service, but also put their soul into their work. They are wonderful, interesting young guys, a real team worthy of admiration. The guys not only do their job perfectly, but they can also have fun with the guests. Thanks to the chefs for delicious dishes with excellent presentation, a varied menu and an attentive individual approach. Respect to the musicians for the excellent accompaniment of all celebrations and for allowing us to get to know the local folklore. Will we return to this hotel again? Without hesitation, I will answer that - We will return!”. 

Stay with Island Luxury and support local, stay with Island Luxury and experience authentic Maldives hospitality.
