The Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi is situated in the most Northern Atoll of the Maldives on a private 52 acre island surrounded by turquoise lagoons and the wide open seas of the Indian Ocean. White sandy beaches merge with abundant tropical vegetation creating a cocoon for the villas that are nestled along the beachfront or creates a wonderful backdrop for those that are perched on stilts. The resort is accessed by a remarkable seaplane journey.
The large majority of TripAdvisor travelers rate the Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi as “excellent,” with many saying it is the manifestation of paradise. Said one recent visitor, “We were so excited for this trip and looking forward to some great sun, relaxation, and beautiful beaches. This place exceeded our expectations in every way. The beaches and the water are the best we have ever been to. You can snorkel right off the beach (or off your water villa if you stay in one) and see some of the most colorful tropical fish. We took a walk around the island every morning and then went to the huge breakfast buffet, which had everything.”
