This is the new yacht club on the international superyacht radar
Amilla is an intimate timeless place not about trend, but about lifestyle. Located in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, it is one of the 26 natural atolls in the Indian Ocean. Amilla offers you a choice of ‘Island Homes’ that hover over crystal clear waters, nestled among lush tree tops or that hug the shores of pristine white sand.”~ Maldives Tourism
Miami-esque and super lux island resort Amilla Fushi is delighted to reveal its newest development the Amilla Yacht Club (AYC), firmly anchoring Amilla Fushi’s place on the international superyacht circuit.
The AYC encompasses the island’s open to all, three-berth marina as well as the overwater signature restaurant Feeling Koi (accessible directly by speedboat), the 1 OAK Lounge & Bar, and the Board Walk [opening Q4]. Amilla Yacht Club Membership is now also open – exclusively by invitation only – offering members exclusive discounts and priority access to berths, events and parties at Amilla Fushi and sister resort Finolhu.
Since opening as one of the Indian Ocean’s most talked-about island resorts, many of the world’s most prestigious private yachts have already voyaged to Amilla Fushi seeking its inimitable blend of laid-back laissez-flair. The development of the Amilla Yacht Club and its marina facilities allows for refuelling, provisioning, maintenance and repairs (technicians can be brought from Malé), while yacht owners and their guests take some shore leave at Amilla Fushi – or even explore UNESCO protected Baa Atoll or sister property and #MyBeachClubHaven Finolhu!
The Amilla Yacht Club Marina has three berths, each with three phase shore power and water, and can accommodate yachts up to a maximum of 20 metres, with a 2 metre draft. Larger yachts (over 20m) are also welcome to anchor outside the reef and enjoy all the Amilla Yacht Club facilities and benefits.
Amilla Yacht Club membership benefits include island and lagoon access at both Amilla and Finolhu, allowing use of both resorts’ facilities including the pools, beach clubs, spa and dining facilities; 10 per cent off all available Houses, Villas and Residences; 10 per cent off all food and beverage, spa, excursions and watersports at both resorts; and special access to exclusive events and parties. Private dinner events can be arranged at Finolhu’s famous Fish & Crab Shack, and a 10 per cent discount is offered on day rental of Funadhoo Private Island.
Yacht owners can also request a spa therapist for on-board treatments, refuelling by ship in Amilla Bay or Finolhu outer reef areas (24 hours notice), and provisions supply.
Serious seadogs can also while away their shore leave at Amilla’s HUB (Home of the Underwater Biosphere), the island’s epicentre of water-based activities offering remarkable aquatic excursions, a comprehensive Marine Biology programme, adrenaline-fuelled water sports, dazzling diving and boat charters courtesy of Dive Butler International.
As well as operating Amilla’s extensive private boat charter fleet – including the luxuriously appointed, traditionally hand-crafted 20m Maldivian dhoni, Sloop John B and the 13m luxury cruiser Vismara – Dive Butler’s on-island team can also provide visiting yachts and superyachts with itinerary planning services throughout the Maldives; private cruise directors and scuba instructors/guides; and dive support vessels.
