Native Sailing Craft Gets a Superyacht Makeover
Committed to elevating the modern Maldivian experience, Huvafen Fushi, one of the many island resorts, continues to leave others in its wake with the launch of inspiring new packages aboard its exclusively-designed Dhonis.
Outwardly capturing the grace of traditional sailing boats, these handcrafted vessels have been fitted out with all the indulgent contemporary luxuries characteristic of the archipelago’s hippest and most innovative resort. Dedicated crews and private butlers are on call for every voyage, ensuring every request can be catered for.
The Dhonis is a native craft of the Indian Ocean much favoured by fishermen who sail in the waters surrounding the Maldive Islands. They are not normally renowned for their luxury and certainly until now would never fall into the super yacht category but that may yet be about to change
Sweeping bows gliding through the water, the Dhonis are the embodiment of grace under sail. Traditional on the outside, yet high on design and cutting edge technology on the inside, each features:
· Bedroom with king-sized bed and Frette linen
· Bose surround sound, i-Pod, DVD player and LCD screen
· Fully-equipped kitchen with a well-stocked Smeg fridge
· Spacious Philippe Starck-designed bathroom and living area.
Embrace the romance of the Maldives with an intimate voyage for two on a fully-crewed Dhoni, exploring undiscovered reefs teeming with kaleidoscopic marine life.Set sail at twilight and watch the dramatic colours of the evening sky dance on the Maldivian waves. Stargaze with Champagne and canapés under the moon with tailored Sunset Cruise and Stargazing packages.
Be pampered to perfection, Per AQUUM-style, with signature LIME spa treatments on-deck in the azure lagoon, or ashore on a desert island with Wellness-on-Water.
