Resort Description

Vakarufalhi Island Resort is a luxury private island destination in South Ari Atoll. 

The island has a beautiful house reef beginning 15 meters from the shore, full of tropical fish like snappers, soldier fish and bat fish. From January till March, trips to Manta Point are made several times a week. Between September and December, it's not uncommon to spot a whale shark. 

The resort is comprised of over-water and beach villas. Each space offers ultimate privacy, open-air bathrooms, king sized beds, air conditioning and easy access to the lagoon. 

Ilaa Restaurant serves up fresh, varied cuisine throughout the day, and Ihaa Bar often features live music and DJs. Private dinners can be arranged on request. 

Activities include a trip to the over-water Duniye Spa, water sports, fishing, snorkelling, sunset dolphin seeking and discovering a virgin island. 

How to get there


  • The best airport to fly into is Male International Airport, and you can reach the island via seaplane or domestic flight (additional cost, advance notice required).
  • Seaplane flights are only available between 6 am and 4 pm. If your flight arrives after 2pm, you may not be able to make the seaplane transfer and will need to stay overnight in Male and travel to the resort the following day. 
  • Early check in and late check out is available at no extra charge depending on availability. 


  • You can reach Male International Airport via seaplane or domenstic flight between 6 am and 4 pm (additional cost, advance notice required). 
  • If your international flight departs earlier than 9 am, you will not be able to make it to the airport in time on the same day. In that case, you will need to travel to the airport the day before and stay overnight in Male.
