More details

The hotel’s generous all-inclusive Cristal Package means meals, drinks and some activities are covered. Return hotel transfers are from US$550 for adults; from US$275 for 2–11s.


Here's an incentive to tie the knot if we ever heard one: honeymooners get 50 per cent off spa treatments. We'd book two Enchanting Wave massages – a knee-weakeningly dreamy 75-minute full-body ritual that combines reiki, tai chi, Hawaiian lomi lomi and esalen massage – immediately. During your treatment, ask to have the shutters of your room left open, so you can hear the waves purr and smell the sea breeze.

At the hotel

Big beach, beach volleyball, outdoor swimming pool, spa with eight treatment rooms and a yoga pavilion; gym, entertainment lounge with pool tables and cards, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: TV, DVD player, minibar, bathrobes, slippers, Constance bath products.

Our favourite rooms

Torn between beach and overwater? Opt for Water Villas 30–35, which are at the beginning of the jetty, with easy access to the beach on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other. Beach bums will go gaga for Beach Villas 17–25, which overlook the yawning white beach and put beach volleyball and Totem Bar on your doorstep. If it’s privacy you’re after, book Senior Water Villa 78 or 79, which are both secluded at the very end of the jetty; if sunset views are your thing, go for a Water Villa with an odd number between 101 and 137, or a Senior Water Villa with an even number between 50 and 78.


Constance Moofushi's knee-weakeningly lovely pool is curved to mirror the shape of the beach, resulting in spectacular views from all sunbeds. Tucked away close to the spa, this peaceful spot has sunloungers scattered on the surrounding wooden deck and beach below. Try and bag one of the sunbeds on the platform accessed by the walkway over the pool for uninterrupted Indian Ocean views (you won't be complaining, wherever you end up). If 'swimming' (flopping around) brings on the munchies, Totem Bar next door serves lunchtime snacks and drinks.

Packing tips

Shoes you can dance in (on a wooden dance floor) for late nights at Manta Bar. Mr/Ms Smith might want to put a diamond ring in their pocket, so as to be prepared.


Smokers, rejoice: free cigarettes are served individually from the humidor.


Welcome. Babysitting can be arranged upon request (speak to staff when you check in); cots (free) and extra beds (free for under-5s; US$160 for under-12s; US320 for over-11s) can be added to Beach Villas, Water Villas and Senior Water Villas.

Food and Drink


Top Table

At Manta: a table on the overwater deck, so you can spy on the jewel-coloured fishes and bullet-grey reef sharks darting beneath you. At Alizee: nab a candlelit table on the shore and scrunch the sherbet-soft sand between your toes while you eat.

Dress Code

Island ghoul (white, soft and flowing) for candlelit dinners at Alizee; well-heeled beach bum for casual Manta.

Hotel restaurant

Manta Restaurant has a carpet of sand, a mobile seashell sculpture strung from its ceiling and belt-popping buffets: expect daily-changing themes at dinner (Mexican Mondays, Mediterranean Tuesdays, Indian and Sri Lankan Wednesdays and so on) with a bewildering array of delicious dishes. (The friendly sommelier will help pair your choices with the best grapey blend.) Alizee is smaller and more romantic, with wave-side tables set right on the beach and a precise, tempting à la carte menu: scallops with Serrano ham and buttered leeks and the Maldivian spiced reef fish caught our eye. Don't turn your back on the grilled lobster (an extra US$40, but more than worth it). Stay for seven nights, and rates cover one dinner for two at Alizee (two dinners, if you stay longer); the Cristal package includes all meals at Manta and as many lunches at Totem as you can fit in. 

Hotel bar

Toast your holiday at the relaxed Totem bar, which wouldn’t look out of place on a hippy beach in Goa. (We love the tree-trunk tables.) Over at Manta Bar, DJ Sanjeewa will keep you dancing under the disco ball until the early hours. Stay refreshed with a Moofushi Nasta Lemonade (home-made lemon and ginger marmalade with bourbon, fresh mint and cucumber) or an ice-cold tropical bellini.

Last orders

Totem refreshes guests from 10am until 11.30pm; Manta Bar stays open until 12.30am. Alizee stops serving at 10pm; Manta keeps plating up until 10.30pm.

Room service

None, but the all-inclusive concept means you won’t go hungry. Make the most of your free minibar, which is stocked with crisps, chocolate, beer, soft drinks and wine, and replenished daily. Free afternoon tea and pancakes are served by the pool daily.


Constance Moofushi
South Ari Atoll
Ari Atoll


Fly into Malé International Airport, where you’ll be met by hotel staff and whisked away to Constance’s seaplane lounge to take the 30-minute seaplane transfer to the hotel. The seaplanes only operate in daylight hours (between 6am and 4pm). Return hotel transfers are from US$550 for adults (over-11s); from US$275 for 2–11s. Infants can travel for free, as long as they're on someone's lap.

Worth getting out of bed for

Constance Moofushi goes out of its way to entertain guests, offering free windsurfing, kayaking, pedal boating and snorkelling excursions (equipment included). For an extra cost, you can set off in a dhoni and be dropped off at your own private island for a full or half day, go on a sunset cruise, seek out dolphins on a speedboat, visit a local village, go night fishing, hire a private boat or embark on a diving trip. If you’ve befriended fellow guests, hang out in the entertainment lounge together and play cards and pool. Overindulged at Manta and the bar? Get active with some beach volleyball, or unwind with a couples’ treatment in the spa. If you get a case of island fever, hop on a boat to sister property Constance Halaveli for dinner. The boat trip and dinner are chargeable, but it’s a great way to glimpse another island.

Local restaurants

Have a meal at Jahaz, the restaurant at sister hotel Constance Halaveli. Dinner is a generous buffet, with different themes each night. Your other dining options at Halaveli include 10-table Meeru for delicious dinners of grilled meat or fish, and romantic Jing – located half-way down the overwater jetty – which serves adventurous fusion food in a stunning turquoise and dark-wood dining room.



Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this beachy hotel in the South Ari Atoll and dusted the sand from their clothes, a full account of their luxury seaside break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Constance Moofushi in the Maldives…

Think Maldives getaways mean a hefty price tag, minimal contact with other humans and speaking in hushed tones at dinner? Think again. Constance Moofushi brings a new spin to island escapes, thanks to its generous all-inclusive rates, lively resident DJ, party feel and effortlessly brilliant staff. If you want the classic honeymooner’s hideaway, of course you’ll still find it here: the villas – pick from beach or overwater – are romantic and sexy, the big beach is dazzling, the spa treatments are excellent and the food and wine are amazing. But if you’re the kind of guest that likes to chat to your barman, befriend your neighbours at dinner and wear out your heels cutting shapes beneath a glittering disco ball, you’ll thrive here.
