Luxury resort Lti Maafushivaru ranks 2nd out of 35 luxury resorts in the South Ari Atoll, making it into the Maldives top 10 list on Tripadvisor.
The resort currently ranked six out of 412 resorts in the Maldives, based on the traveller rating on Tripadvisor as of February. Lti Maafushivaru welcomed back guests in August and since then has been claiming its rightful place in the Maldives luxury market. This was very evident in the resort’s busy operation towards the end of the year with almost full occupancy during the festive season.
Renovated and refreshed but losing none of its tropical island charm, Maafushivaru joined Europe-based DER Touristik Hotels & Resorts’ lti brand and is the first long-haul lti hotel to launch in 16 years and will do so across Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the UK. Maafushivaru is exclusive to DER Touristik’s tour operator brands (DERTOUR, Meiers Weltreisen, ITS Reisen, JAHN Reisen, Kuoni UK and Switzerland as well as Manta Reisen in Switzerland). Since Lti Maafushivaru secured second place in South Ari Atoll last December, the resort has maintained its rank consistently.
Resort Manager Pierre Leif Edlund said, “During the renovation of the new lti Maafushivaru and the planning stage that took place in a small office in Male, we always dreamed of becoming one of the top ranked resorts in the Maldives. Our lti Maafushivaru family has now made this dream possible through hard work and with the commitment to always and deliver beyond and above expectations. I would like to sincerely thank all my colleagues in the team for their dedication and hard work during these challenging and uncertain times.”
A unique Island Experience in the Indian Ocean gem offering small island charm with contemporary architecture and bespoke finishing touches. In the pristine South Ari Atoll, Lti Maafushivaru Resort in the Maldives is just a 25-minute seaplane journey from Male and offers guests the idyllic island experience epitomising all that one dreams of when thinking of the Maldives. An island over 350metres in length, Lti Maafushivaru is partially shaded by its lush vegetation encircled by white-beaches adjacent to a spectacular house reef where a myriad of fish calls home.
