For two years we have been welcoming guests to their own luxury island in the Maldives where barefoot chic meets Constance sophistication, creating a unique vibe all of its own.

In that time you seem to have liked what we’ve done – awarding us two Trip Advisor Certificates of Excellence and the 2012 Travellers Choice Award for Top 25 Hotels in Asia.

And even though you’re happy with us, we continue to work to make your experience at Moofushi even better. In May this year we welcomed our new General Manager, Jean François Debon, who is passionate about ensuring guests have the ultimate luxury holiday experience.

Highlights of Moofushi

Here’s a run down of what we’ve introduced in the last two years:

  • Moonlight dinners – a chance to treat yourself and your loved one to a romantic four course meal with champagne served on a candle-lit beach by your own private butler.

  • Sandbank moments – a chance to share a table for two on a sandbank of your own for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  • Cinefushi – lie back on a star-lit beach and watch a movie while we serve you popcorn, canapés, ice cream and cocktails.
  • Sunrise & sunset yoga – stretch and relax in the warmth of the rising or setting sun with our beach yoga sessions.
  • Special Maldivian bed decoration – as part of our turndown service

Thanks to our hugely popular all inclusive Cristal package you’ve been able to come here relaxed in the knowledge that we will look after your every need.

Diving at Moofushi

Diving has been one of our most popular activities since we opened, hardly surprising thanks to our stunning location on the South Ari Atoll, one of the best dive spots in the Maldives.

To make the diving experience even better we have invited a resident marine biologist for guests who want to learn more about what they see.

With their help we run a PADI shark speciality course and from December to April, there’s snorkelling with manta rays.

For die-hard diving fans and adrenalin junkies, we’ve introduced the exciting diving scooter course climaxing with a scooter dive in Moofushi’s shark pass or one of our shark points.

Weddings and honeymoons

Over the last two years Moofushi has become a popular venue for destination weddings, and our personal wedding planner has helped make many couples’ dreams of a luxury Indian Ocean wedding come true.

Fans of Moofushi

We may have only been here for two years but some of our guests have loved their time with us so much they have returned again and again.

Dream wedding at Constance Moofushi, Maldives

Four years after they first met, Helen and Joe Maughan flew out to Constance Moofushi in the Maldives for their dream island wedding.

Wedding bliss at Moofushi

Helen and Joe chose Moofushi because they wanted a romantic wedding in paradise… barefoot with nothing to worry about except enjoying their big day.

After a civil service ceremony in London, Helen and Joe arrived at Moofushi four days before their wedding, which took place on 2 February 2011.

‘This allowed us enough time to acclimatise and also build up a bit of a tan before the big day. We worked with Corinne the wedding planner, and the Food & Beverage manager who helped us pick the location and arrange what time we were to get married.’

After going through the details, Helen and Joe could relax for a few days before their wedding.

The day of the wedding

On the day of the wedding, Helen and Joe indulged at Moofushi’s beautiful over-the-sea spa with a couple’s massage and facial before heading back to their room to share a bottle of champagne.

‘Joe was then picked up by a golf buggy and taken to one of the water villas to get ready. Corinne brought my flowers round and took the wedding bands. I was met at 4pm by the wedding band and walked to the jetty where I met my husband-to-be! We were then taken to the sandbank on a golf buggy decorated with flowers where the ceremony was then held.
‘The team at Moofushi had done an incredible job making an aisle of flowers and bamboo.’

Helen and Joe's dream wedding

After the ceremony, the couple enjoyed more champagne and wedding cake before having photos taken at different locations on the sandbank and across the island and, in keeping with tradition on Moofushi, planting a coconut tree.

As the sun went down, Helen and Joe shared cocktails and had a romantic dinner of lobster and steak on the beach for just the two of them.

Helen and Joe’s tips for planning a destination wedding

‘We would definitely recommend Moofushi – everything went perfectly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. To the groom – don’t worry about bringing any shoes or a tie for your wedding as the beauty of getting married abroad is it is so laid back.’

  • a delicious breakfast, followed by a morning spa in a spa treatment double room, including a massage and facial for bride and groom
  • a romantic ceremony at the Manta Bar, specially decorated for the occasion
  • a tree planting ceremony so that they could commemorate their special day on Moofushi Island, and see how it has grown when they next return 
  • a special candlelit dinner at Alizée Beach restaurant, with wine chosen by our sommelier
  • delicious wedding cake – vanilla and chocolate with fruit topping
  • rose petal turndown in their villa on wedding night
