06 April 2022


Outrigger Hospitality Group has acquired the newly renovated five-star Maafushivaru Resort in the Maldives, adding another premier beach property to its expanding global portfolio.

The luxury resort will be renamed Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort and is located on a private island in the South Ari Atoll region, a 25-minute seaplane from Malé, offering convenient access and breathtaking views for arriving guests.

The resort is comprised of 81 luxury villa styles including beach, pool and duplex accommodations, as well as coveted overwater bungalows and more.

Located in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is classified by many world travellers as the ultimate luxury beach destination.

Known for its white sandy beaches and an endless turquoise lagoon, the Maafushivaru Resort has recently undergone an extensive modernisation and is poised to be among the Maldives’ most sought-after vacation destinations.


The Outrigger brand is renowned for barefoot luxury, effortlessly fusing contemporary comforts with a relaxed and joyful vibe.

In addition to blissful accommodations, guests to Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort can look forward to exceptional dining, live music entertainment and bespoke signature experiences.

The private island resort has seven restaurants, bars and cafes, which offer a stimulating mix of food and beverage offerings.

Cuisine ranges from Asian to Mediterranean; enjoy fresh sushi and teppanyaki one day, then steak and salad the next. Music plays a key role in the Outrigger experience too, from the chill beats of a DJ at Water Bar to the sweet sounds of a live band, the energy is unmatched.

Signature experiences include underwater dive adventures with the resident marine biologist to viewing manta rays at the nearby coral reefs and boat excursions around the South Ari Atoll.

The brand’s environmental stewardship platform, Outrigger’s ZONE (OZONE) further links enriching guest experiences with coral reef restoration to protect our oceans and help them thrive for generations to come.

For the ultimate relaxation, the resort spa is an oasis of wellbeing with customised treatments, including rooms for couples. As one of the most romantic destinations on earth, vow renewals on the soft white beaches are also offered as a way to cherish new-found love or a renewed romance.
