Furaveri Maldives is a tropical 23-hectare natural and un-reclaimed island located in Raa Atoll. The resort is a short, 45-minute seaplane ride from Velana International airport and features 168 private villas, ranging from garden villas to two-bedroom villas for families.
From the moment I booked my trip with Furaveri, they handled everything. A representative met us at the airport and we were whisked away to a seaplane transport, run by Trans Maldivian Airways.
Upon arrival on the island, we were greeted by staff with cold towels and introduced to our Island Host, Renaliza. She took us on a tour of the island, showed us to our villa, and was always reachable on WhatsApp to help us book all sorts of activities.
Our room was one of their Ocean Pool Villas, featuring an open-air deck with a private infinity pool overlooking the ocean, a hammock, an open-air bath tub, a day bed, and lounge chairs. The room was absolutely breathtaking and we made good use of the private pool and deck during our time there.
Our villa also had direct access to the ocean, where you can snorkel from your deck. We saw sting rays and baby sharks just right by our room!
The resort is surrounded by beautiful white sand and blue ocean. They have a main pool with lounge chairs, as well as lounge chairs on the beach. We’ve definitely walked over to the beach for a post-lunch swim or just to lay out on the beach.
Of course, the resort also has a ton of photo op spots! And you bet we took advantage of it!
We had their Premium All-Inclusive Package, with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Jaafaiy Restaurant, along with snacks and drinks at Udhares Bar. I loved the selection of food at Jaafaiy, especially during their Maldivian night. We also took full advantage of their unlimited drinks menu and tried more than our fair share of cocktails everyday.
During our stay, we booked a Floating Brekkie to be delivered to our pool. It was a luxury that we probably didn’t need, but it was definitely fun to have it. We popped open our sparkling wine and made our own mango mimosas in the room.
We also had an amazing couples massage at their Wellness Village. Our technicians were fantastic and we felt completely rejuvenated after extremely long travel day to get to the Maldives!
My absolute favorite activity was waking up to watch the sunrise from our bed. With the wall-to-ceiling windows in front of the bed, we were able to enjoy the sunrise every morning. We were lucky to hit a full moon during our stay, so we were able to moon-gaze as well from our bed.
The sunsets were not too shabby either.
Our visit to Furaveri was the most relaxing vacation either of us has ever had. From the moment we stepped off the seaplane, everything was just a text or a short buggy ride away. We spent countless hours lounging on our private deck and swimming in our own pool. It was truly the most perfect honeymoon trip, allowing us to spend time together and recharge.
