Club Med Maldives Offers Variety
Club Med boasts two separate island properties in the Maldives, namely Kani and Finolhu Villas. Each of these presents exquisite island experiences with a special flavor of their own.
Located on the exclusive private island of Gasfinolhu, Finolhu Villas offers extravagant luxury in private suites with a view. The award-winning eco-friendly design of this resort features a host of exquisite features such as an onsite spa, exclusive-use plunge pools, and private butlers.
Extravagance is a given at this 5-star resort. Your only decisions revolve around whether you’d prefer to stay in beachside accommodation or in a stilted over-water suite. You can also pick whether you’d prefer a view of the sunset or sunrise.
Dining options include Asian and international dishes served at three exceptional onsite restaurants.
Despite the plush nature of this resort, teenagers are welcome and catered for with a range of age-appropriate activities.
On-demand activities (at extra cost) include:
- Sunset cruises
- Lobster picnics
- Underwater scooters
- Scenic flights

You can also enjoy guided day trips to the capital, Male, or enjoy the adrenalin boost of flyboarding, and parasailing.
This small island places you at the heart of the island action, with 75 over-water suites for your intimate enjoyment.
You’ll get to experience the joy of waking to the sound of the gently lapping waves, and the vision of a blazing sunrise over the vast turquoise ocean. Just below the waters, colorful marine species flit among equally brilliant corals, inviting you to join them in their underwater playground.
Alternatively, you could spend your time in a range of plush garden suites, where you can enjoy quiet moments contemplating your lush surroundings to a chorus of birdsong.
With three restaurants and three bars to choose from on-site, you’ll find no shortage of refreshment to fuel your adventures at this resort.

Don’t miss the chance to get involved in the Coral Propagation Programme if you’d like to leave your mark on the Maldives.
The most popular activities in this part of the world center on the ocean. These include sailing, snorkelling, and kayaking. Many of these exciting diversions will cost you nothing when you visit Club Med’s Maldives resorts.
On land, it’s all about relaxation, with soothing spa treatments and meanders among the island sights for the — slightly — more energetic traveler.
What the Maldives lacks in land-based animals it makes up for with creatures of the air and sea. Five of the world’s seven species of sea turtle occur here. Over 2,000 species of fish flourish offshore and there are about 100 different kinds of birds to admire.
Other ocean attractions include a wealth of starfish, octopi, anemones, crabs, and lobsters.
