The Residence Maldives hero

The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi

Discover The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi

Nestled in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, one of the largest and deepest atoll's in the world, The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi is a secluded retreat offering unparalleled natural beauty and exceptional experiences. Popular with honeymooners and couples keen to explore the rich marine life of the surrounding waters.

The resort's 94 beachfront and overwater villas, some with private pool, blend traditional Maldivian design with colonial elegance, while excellent dining options include Falhumaa, spectacularly located over the house reef at the end of a 200 metre long jetty, the most romantic of settings. The real joy of this resort, however, is its location in the Gaafu Atoll, rich in marine life and home to over 1,200 species of fish and coral, including dolphins, turtles and rays. Numerous activities await - from exceptional dive sites to guided snorkelling over the house reef. The hotel is active in many conservation projects including the Protect Maldives Seagrass initiative.
