Accommodation to suit everyone

The Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort offers 176 stylish villas, pavilions, and studios, between them catering for those looking for romance, family fun or for a group adventure. They include 10 dreamy overwater pool villas perfect for a couples’ escape and also 40 multi-bedroom villas with lots of space for larger parties, including multigenerational holidays with grandparents or other holidays with extended family or friends.

Marine wonders

The Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is rich in sea life. Discover it on diving and snorkelling trips, including night-time outings to see reef sharks, whale sharks, and more. Within it, Hanifaru Bay is particularly magical – a place to witness more than 100 manta rays feeding and dancing in acrobatic displays. The bay is actually most famous as a nursery ground for grey sharks, but from mid-May until December it fills with plankton that attract manta rays to feed. 

Alternatively, you can snorkel right off the beach at Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort – there’s a total of 14 sites on the vibrant house reef and nearby Fares reef. And Fares means reef in the local Dhivehi language, so you know you are in the right place.

Other unforgettable adventures and activities

Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort is a place to create memories that last a lifetime. As well as the dive centre, there’s a whole world of water sports to enjoy, such as seabobbing, flyboarding, kitesurfing, and parasailing. There’s also a fleet of speedboats and yachts on standby to take you out big-game fishing or simply to watch dolphins play as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.

Other places to have fun and be active at the resort include the main pool with its slide and Jacuzzi, the tennis and badminton courts, the state-of-the-art gym with its yoga and Pilates sessions, and the games room. Younger guests can delight in the AvaniKids Club and the Teens Club for getting together and making new friends, while adults love the AvaniSpa for its hi-tech treatments.

A culinary journey

There are seven restaurants at the Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort, meaning there’s something different to try every night of the week and something to suit all moods, tastes, and ages. Offerings including both local and global flavours at The Ocean Terrace and The Skipjack Bar, seafood and meat grills at Charcoal, and delicious snacks at Hammock. Tribe and the Smuggler's Shack are both popular hangouts for their molecular cocktails, while younger guests love the healthy dishes available at Petit Bistro, which is the Maldives' first kids-only restaurant.


As lively by night as it is by day, the Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort offers evenings full of live music, DJ sets, and fire shows synced with local bodu beru drumming for a full-on Maldivian vibe. There are also more low-key local music performances, or you can simply relax in the moonlight with a cocktail.
