Emboodhu Finolhu Island, Maldives – Full Guide

Emboodhu Finolhu Island is a heaven in the South Male Atoll. The Taj Exotica Resort & Spa 5*, one of the best hotels in the Maldives, is located in this island for a memorable and lovely trip.

Because owners are so concerned about their reputation, they constantly update the number of rooms, bringing it to perfection. In 2010, the hotel underwent its last renovation, and today it deserves to be included among the list of the most luxurious resorts in the Maldives. The Emboodhu Finolhu island is easily accessible by speed boat from Male International Airport, which is only 8 kilometers away. It takes 15 minutes to travel, and staff members accompany the tourists.


Description of the Beach

Emboodhu Finolhu is a small and cozy island, less than a kilometer in length and only thirty meters in width. In the midst of lush tropical greenery, it stands out beautifully beside the white sand beaches and brilliant turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. No home reef is nearby Emboodhu Finolhu, so dive enthusiasts will have to travel to the nearest boat sets. It is a real paradise for snorkeling lovers, as the turquoise waters of the lagoon are transparent and glass-like, and flocks of colorful fish, stingrays, and giant turtles swim right alongside the shore.

Due to the lack of a reef, it is safe to walk barefoot along the coast and in the water without fear of shards of coral causing harm. The beach’s cleanliness is so carefully monitored that the sands on the beach seem to be unreal and surreal.

There are sunshades, hammocks, four-poster beds, and soft sun loungers on all of the beaches. A private gazebo on the water is provided for romantic dates, and waiters and butlers serve the guests.

Waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing, wakeboarding, renting a schooner, canoe, or jet ski are some of the activities outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy while on vacation. There is a diving center in the hotel, and yoga and meditation classes are held daily.


The Best Time to Visit Emboodhu Finolhu Island

There is always warm, tropical weather in the Maldives, at + 27-30ºС, which is situated in a tropical country with a tropical climate. However, there are some seasonal features on the islands. In the middle of April through early October, it frequently rains here. In November through April of a year, it is a dry season. As a result, transparent seawater becomes clear this time, and the sun shines twelve hours a day.

During October and November, a lot of plankton is collected off the coast, so that’s why the ocean turns a sort of amber-shade hue. The other side of the coin – plankton reflects its light and creates an indescribable picture. During this time, the coasts are full of stingrays – splendid creatures in no way inferior to dolphins.



A luxury villa with all the care and amenities essential for an ideal vacation awaits you at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa 5*. Each of them has a pool, a panoramic bathroom, and sun terraces. The hotel features an iPod dock, an iPod docking station, and a Nespresso coffee machine. It also has a laptop (tablet), bathrobes, slippers, and toiletries from the well-known Molton Brown brand.

It has been repeatedly awarded the highest level of luxury and a lavish design for The Rehendi Presidential Suite with Pool. It features a living room and two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, two gazebos, a 12-meter pool, and a terrace full of white sand. In the villa, food and drinks are served by a butler, and you can order them right in your room.

Two restaurants are located in the territory and offer meals based on an “a la carte” system. The 24 Degrees restaurant offers Indian, Asian, and Continental cuisine.

A gourmet restaurant called The Deep End is considered one of the most excellent in the Maldives. On the menu will be gourmet seafood and other delicacies, as well as a wide range of desserts, all served with a wide selection of wines from the hotel’s collection. A visit to Equator Bar will offer traditional drinks and creative concoctions created by local bartenders and enjoy original Cuban cigars or a hookah.

A luxurious Jiva spa, gym, fitness center, sauna, and hammam are located in the hotel. The hotel has a mini-golf course, fishing, and Billiards for its guests’ recreation.


Interesting Information

Even though the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa 5* can accommodate children, the hotel still offers a romantic atmosphere for honeymooners. In keeping with the best local traditions, guests will receive a warm welcome, along with cold champagne, fruits, and refreshing towels. A romantic atmosphere creates the rooms, decorated by Singapore’s best interior designers, with orchids and rose petals.

You can arrange a wedding ceremony that is not official according to Maldivian law but is incredibly memorable. A traditional rite entails exchanging rings, taking oaths by the bride and groom, and registration of a marriage certificate. During this colorful ceremony, held on an uninhabited island or on a deserted beach, the lovers enjoy a romantic dining experience under the setting sun while listening to BoduBeru drums’ sounds.
