Description of Maldives luxury resort, Fulhadhoo Boutique Hotel
Accessible tourism overview:
We are a team of can-do people, and we are able to customise our tours and experiences to ensure that anyone can make the most of our tour options. We have welcomed a range of guests with different disabilities and ages and our guides are only too happy to help accommodate their needs. Our youngest guest has been 6 months old and our eldest guest has been in their 90s so the team are used to working with different age groups and adapting the tour and activities to be encompassing regardless of age, ability or experience. All we ask is that we are made aware of any specific requirements at the time of booking so that we can plan in advance.
We can offer ground floor accommodation options or properties with lifts and our activities can be adapted by our experienced and professional guiding team.
Guests with wheelchairs can be assisted to negotiate Male as well as most of the local islands we visit. We offer resorts where access around the property is on wooden board walks or paved pathways so there is no fear of wheels getting stuck in the sand. Some of our partner dive centres offer special days for locals with disabilities to try dive or snorkelling in safe and controlled conditions. If this is of interest then we maybe be able to accommodate this into your stay with us.
The people of the Maldives are naturally laid back and relaxed and you will find stays on local islands calm and peaceful. We select small family run properties and if you have specific requirements in regard to the activities included on our tours we are happy to tailor-make. We have a relationship with a local autism centre which allows us to access accompanying support if necessary.
'Free from' food:
As you may expect from an island beach nation the Maldives imports over 90% of its food, discounting the abundance of tuna, chilli and fresh coconut that form part of our staple diet. We appreciate that our guests may have special dietary requirements and are used to dealing with allergies, intolerance and special requirements. Providing we know in advance either before or at the time of booking we will do our best to meet your dietary requirements or at the very least advise you on what alternatives will be on offer.
This trip ensures safe and welcoming travel for LGBTQ travellers. It allows everyone to enjoy and discover our island paradise.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
The Maldives is a fragile environment. It is more fragile and more in danger than most other places on earth. The country’s existence relies on healthy coral reefs and a moderation of the sea level rise. The Maldives struggles to eliminate all the rubbish produced by over 1 million tourists per year and whilst educating locals in waste management is all part of a large project, as visitors to their home we encourage our guests to support in the following ways and help by leading by example. For this reason and for the obvious difficulty in eliminating several materials, we suggest to bring back the empty containers of shampoo, bath foam, conditioner, cream and photograph film. We also suggest to reuse plastic bags in shops.
The property has it's own desalination water plant ensuring that drinking water can be provided in glass bottles.
Grey water is collected for re-purposing - watering gardens/agricultural areas.
PeopleA Fair Deal
Island Luxury believes it is people who transform a holiday into an unforgettable experience and this is why the local community of Fulhadhoo is at the heart of their business. From the skilled local carpenters who have hand crafted the Boutique Hotel, to the nimble fingered seamstresses who have designed and made uniforms and pieces of soft furnishings. From the Maldivian chef, gardeners and cleaners to the captain and crew on the private sailing yacht SY Island Luxury. From their trained team of private Thakuru/Kamana - Island Luxury signature butlers, who will make every dream a possibility to their team of local hosts who will share the secrets of their island home.
The island's Women's Development Committee provide local ladies employment opportunities to support in-house laundry services, bake cakes, pastries and hedhikaa and organize a weekly food festival; a venue where guests and local families can interact and engage over tastes of the Maldives.
95% of the team are youth from the island of Fulhadhoo who completed an in house hospitality program during 2021 and that all but 2 members of the 25 strong team are all Maldivian.
Travelling with respect
We work to create good relationships between tourists and the local community. We respect local customs and culture. We want our guests to learn about local customs and cultural practices whilst respecting local dress and cultural requirements.
