Maldives luxury resort Amilla Fushi unveils brilliant new ‘bubble’ experience

by James Wilkinson

Following the enormous success of the ‘bubble’ at Amilla Fushi’s sister island Finolhu, the concept is being elevated to a whole new level at Amilla, where the luxury resort trendsetter debuts its new Skyhouse with Bubble accommodation.

These tranquil, treetop eyries with their own private transparent Bubble, are breathtakingly suspended 12 metres up between a canopy of lush palms and the vast Maldivian skies.

Encircled by swaying palms, and measuring 4 metres in diameter, the Bubble’s interior will feature custom-fitted wooden floors, a rotating daybed, telescope, Bang and Olufsen soundsystem and bespoke furnishings.

A removable cover provides solar protection during the day – and come nightfall, unfettered views of the star-studded heavens above.

In addition to this spectacularly heightened hideaway, the enchanting 220sqm Skyhouse also boasts serene living spaces; a private infinity pool cantilevered out amongst the treetops; and a spacious bathroom.

Formerly known as Tree Houses, Amilla’s five Skyhouses are available in one- or two-bedroom configurations, providing an ideal treetop hideaway for families and couples alike.

Conceived and custom-designed by Eye In The Sky, the transparent inflatable Bubbles are constructed with super-strong, high tech polyester fabric using exclusive Précontraint Serge Ferrari technology.

UV-protected, fully waterproof and climate-controlled, the Bubbles create an inspiring environment where guests can enjoy a uniquely immersive, closer-to-nature experience – without compromising on high-spec design and luxurious creature comforts.
