Situated on a tiny Maldivian island which takes just  over 10 minutes to traverse on foot, Maafushivaru is truly a little world all of its own, surrounded by the seemingly endless blue expanse of the Indian Ocean and drenched in golden tropical sunshine.   Spend a utopian vacation here, walking with your bare feet in the warm powdery sand and splashing in the waves before retreating to your room for some quality time in an elegant haven of contemporary comfort.   Even getting to the island is a breath-taking experience, as guests fly in by seaplane from Malé International Airport, just 25 minutes flight from Maafushivaru.   During the journey your ordinary life falls away and by the time you alight on the resort island you will find yourself feeling like a brand new person, stepping onto a remote paradise cloaked in lush foliage and lapped by sighing azure waves.
