Filitheyo is a resort island in the newly opened North Nilandhoo Atoll. It is a stylish resort that offers a very high standard of accommodation in attractive and well spaced rooms. Filitheyo is, in Maldivian terms, quite a large island 900m by 500m with a densely vegetated interior of palm trees, rubber trees, mangroves and Scaebola trees.

The beaches are broad and beautiful and the island is unspoiled. On the fine, white-sanded ocean side of the island, turtles come in to lay their eggs and lucky guests may be able to watch them hatch on a moonlit night..

There are three types of rooms; Superior, Deluxe and Water Villas. All the superior rooms are semidetached and offer a truly excellent standard of stylish accommodation. Superior and deluxe rooms are large, approximately 5m by 5m, with big, partially open air bathrooms. One of the nicest aspects of the accommodation is the privacy afforded by the vegetation planted between each room.

Restaurants: The restaurant on Filitheyo serves a very good choice of international and local dishes and we were very impressed by the food during our visit. There is a delicious selection of fresh meat and poultry dishes, including grilled meats, seafood and pasta, plus an excellent choice of fresh mixed salads and tropical fruits. For those with a sweeter tooth there is an ample choice of international deserts available. Beach buffets and barbecues, including many Maldivian specialities, provide further variety
to the menu. There is a small restaurant next to the sunset bar which offers an a la Carte menu
