Architecture and design at Constance Moofushi

Continuing our series on the architectural and design inspiration behind our luxury resorts, here’s an insight into the creativity that went into developing the thrillingly beautiful Constance Moofushi.

A pearl in the middle of the Maldives archipelago, Moofushi is situated on The Jewel Island in the South Ari Atoll.

Opened in November 2010, the island has a unique butterfly design and daring architecture that was developed by Mauritian architect Jean-Michel d’Unienville and French design team Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet of Studio MHNA.

Robinson-Crusoe chic

 

At Moofushi, the focus is on offering the ultimate in bare-foot sophistication – luxury without being flashy.

On arrival by sea plane or water taxi, you can walk barefoot straight onto the sand. At the reception, the welcome desks are made of beautifully worn wood, and the chandelier of recycled glass bottles.

This restful space gives you a sense of the wonderfully quirky and stylish mood this resort exudes.

Environmental consideration

Environmental issues were key to the design. Careful consideration has been taken to preserve the environment through efficient and non-polluting materials. Think luxury and simplicity – wood, ropes, lamps in the spirit of the marine lanterns, huge trunk-like wardrobes in the villas and many other surprises.

Communal spaces and spa

The team behind Moofushi has created communal spaces where guests can chill out at any time of day. The lounge is a delightful mix of private club meets Ernest Hemingway hang-out – all leather armchairs, bamboo screens and slow-whirring ceiling fans.

Drink in the tropical night air at the bar, or seek out the VIP spot, lounges on the beach, night spots, isolated restaurant tables and the more classical space close to incredible buffets.

The spa is built above the water to provide a fantastically relaxing space, and each treatment room faces the turquoise sea.

Land and water villas

Relaxed luxury at Moofushi

Getting a good night’s sleep is essential on holiday. At Moofushi there are 110 land and water villas to choose from, all set in an intimate location of lagoons, sandbanks and woodlands.

If you choose our stilted accommodation over the water, you’ll get privileged access to the sea and much longed for privacy – especially for those of you on honeymoon.
