Werner Lau

The island is in the Faafu Atoll, 35 minutes by sea plane and a short 10 minutes by boat from Male.  Splash in the warm turquoise lagoon, enjoy a private dinner for two under the starlight, hop on a boat excursion to explore island communities; the opportunities for rest and relaxation are limitless offering plenty of activities and excursions.  Guests at this charming Maldives resort can discover a spa like no other. Nestled in the heart of the island, the jungle spa is an oasis of calm surrounded by verdant tropical vegetation.  The freeform infinity-edge swimming pool adjacent to the sea, complete with a swim-up bar, is the perfect vantage point to admire the sunset.

Filitheyo is also a paradise for scuba divers. The house reef is bursting with aquatic life including fish, reef sharks and rays, whilst the Werner Lau dive centre also offers a choice of daily excursions. The house reef is in excellent health and there are seven marked access points. In the surrounding area, Faafu Atoll, you can explore by dive boat excursion more than 40 pristine reefs, thilas, channels, wrecks and caves bursting with vibrant marine life and healthy corals. As it’s the only resort in the atoll you won’t run into other groups of divers at the dive sites either. 

You can dive on the North as well as on the South side of the house reef and one can safely say that it is spectacular. On the North side it drops down to a depth of 90m.  Two wrecks on the house reef offer even more diversity for divers. Daily trips to the surrounding dive sites also guarantee a great deal of diversification. 

Due to Filitheyo’s solitary position on the Eastern edge of the North Nilandhe Atoll you can expect untouched dive sites offering a great diversity of corals and big fish.
