Hotel overview

In translation "finolhu" means "sandbank". Opened in 2016, Seaside Finolhu Resort is one of the best beach resorts in the Maldives. It stretches across four islands and its beaches are about two kilometers long. Thanks to lush tropical plants the main island looks like a botanical garden. This elegant resort with its 125 private villas and four restaurants is as varied as the coral landscape of Baa Atoll.

Those looking for tranquility can surrender to the music of the waves of the turquoise blue sea. In the evening you can take a stroll across the sandbank to the Crab Shack to enjoy the sunset with favourite drinks and snacks. Guests, who prefer active and eventful vacation with family and friends, can occupy themselves with diving, snorkeling or a boat trip.

And what about a spontaneous evening at one of the parties by the pool bar? Cara Delivingne and Paris Hilton have already been there! The hotels perk is its Beach Bubble Tent, located on the sandbank - in a big transparent bubble there is a king-size bed with a baldachin, indoor shower and even a toilet.

Seaside Finolhu Resort definitely is the perfect place for every guest. However, there is one minus - after a vacation here it will be difficult for you to return to everyday life!

Resort infrastructure includes:

  • 125 villas
  • 4 restaurants, snack bar and beach club bar
  • 2-kilometer beach line
  • Plunge pool
  • Rich home reef
  • The Cove Club spa center

Resort restaurants and bars

From exotic North African and Arabic to Italian and Mediterranean cuisines, Seaside Finolhu Resort's four elegant restaurants will delight you with a variety of dishes and excellent service. The bars, with their fun entertainment programs, will make your evenings unforgettable:

  • Baa Baa Beach Diner is the main restaurant of the resort with International cuisine. It serves favorite dishes of Italian, Asian, Maldivian cuisines, fresh seafood, as well as snacks for vegetarians and vegans. Delicious and varied!
  • Kanusan is a gourmet fine-dining restaurant. It is located right in the Indian Ocean and can be reached via a short wooden jetty. The main emphasis is made on Asian culinary delights. It is a very romantic restaurant with an exquisite serving of dishes.
  • Baahaa Grill - Arabic and North African cuisine. Cardamom, caraway seeds, cinnamon and dozens of other spices give a sensuous feast for the palate. Appetizers from vegetables, cereals, meat and, perhaps, the best hummus outside Morocco and Tunisia!
  • Crab Shack is a restaurant of seafood, snacks, drinks and casual atmosphere. You will enjoy savoring fresh shrimp or lobster while sipping a refreshing cocktail and dipping your feet in soft sand!
  • Milk Bar is a wonderful snack bar with ice cream, cookies, cocktails and other delicious treats!
  • Beach Bar. Pool party? Cocktails with friends? Fun time to the beats of top DJs? Performances of famous artists? All of this takes place in the resort Beach Bar! This is why Seaside Finolhu Resort is called the Maldivian Ibiza and Mykonos!
  • Specials. How about a floating breakfast, served on a floating tray in your pool? Or what about a private beach dinner? Or maybe a romantic seaside dinner? You can have it all here!

Diving and fun leisure for every taste

While diving, you can not only see a lot, but also learn a lot about the unique underwater environment. Baa Atoll is the world's largest manta ray habitat. From May to November, dozens of them sail to Hanifaru Bay, only half an hour away from the resort on a speed boat. And those who dive with them will remember this experience for life. Guests are taken to the most beautiful parts of the Baa Atoll. It has everything from deep sea fishing at dawn to morning diving and sunset cruises with dolphins:

  • Diving. The resort offers dive butler services for group or single dives. Many employees grew up on the islands and know the atoll like the back of their hand. They teach guests how important it is to feel under water - to stay alert and watch everything remaining relaxed and calm.
  • Snorkeling. In the morning or at sunset it’s a great moment when you take your diving goggles and flippers and plunge into water! You can reach a beautiful coral reef from your villa with just a few flicks of your flippers. And those who want the big tour can go snorkeling out to the sea with the experienced team.
  • Non-motorized water. sports. Whether kayaking, stand-up paddling, windsurfing or catamaran sailing, you will feel the energy of your body and every muscle active. In the Water Sports Center, you can borrow the equipment free of charge and engage in any activity to your liking!
  • Motorized water sports. Water skiing and jet ski - the ideal combination of glamour and action! It is no coincidence that cool guys from the movies do them! The resort offers a wide range of motorized water sports for that special adrenalin kick. Here you can shoot up into the air with X-Jet Blade, go out on a speedboat tour with the Captain or cut a figure while surfing. Whatever you do, it’s tremendous fun!
  • Excursions. Interesting yacht cruises, dolphin watching, fishing or visiting a local village. Mini-trips are the best opportunity to see more and experience the notorious island lifestyle.
  • Tennis. Take a racket, a ball and go on to new records of speed and endurance!
  • Yoga. Simple and intricate asanas will help strengthen the body and achieve internal balance. A wonderful pavilion for yoga on the beach will make every practice atmospheric. Namaste!
  • Gym. A little exercise with a barbell and dumbbells or active cardio training on a treadmill or stepper is a great way to not worry about physical fitness or weight on vacation because local restaurants do have so many delicious things to try.
