Inge Moore from London’s Studio Muza has redesigned Finolhu. The resort will be closed for improvement from March 25 2020. The celebrated designer explains here what guests can look forward to:
»On my first visit to these enchanting islands of Finolhu I was immediately captivated. I was fascinated by the many shades of blue, by the colours of the sunset in purple, pink and apricot, and by the play of light when it hits the water and is fragmented as if through a lens. And, of course, by the gold of the sand and the green of the palm trees. Very quickly the idea of a kaleidoscope was born, and this idea also provided the inspiration for the new design for Finolhu. In translation, the word “kaleidoscope” means “seeing beautiful forms”. And this playful alternation of patterns, geometry and colours is what guests will now experience when they visit Finolhu. They will be surprised and will marvel at what they see. Artisans from all over the world have created special works for the resort. Mouth-blown glass from Turkey, chandeliers and wickerwork from South Africa and wooden craftwork from Java transform the villas and restaurants, the spa and fitness room and last but not least the beach club for children into an exotic playground. With the new design we have created a location that respects the purity of its surroundings. And isn’t life too short to do without beautiful things?«

The Maldives resort of Finolhu offers you such experiences. Just imagine that you’re sitting on the terrace of your private villa at sunset and a manta ray suddenly swims by. Or you’re snorkelling in the sea in the morning and are greeted by a colourful and curious turtle. In Finolhu you’re living on the verge of a very distinctive world: the sea is the world’s largest natural habitat. And here in Baa Atoll – which is protected by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve – the colours of the corals and fish unfold their very special magic. Finolhu is a place of dreams, both on the beach and in the water. So come and share your dreams with us! We look forward to welcoming you!
