Filitheyo is a solitary island basking in the Indian Ocean. Lying between two channels on the eastern side of the North Nilande Atoll approximately 60 km south of the Ari Atoll. It is 900m long and 500m wide at the outer reef end. Visitors to this island can look forward to diving in pristine waters where they can discover magnificent swarms of tropical fish and a fascinating house reef. The great advantage of it's secluded, exclusive position lies in the unexplored reefs, promising superb diving.

The triangular shaped island has been developed with careful consideration to the enviroment. Small paths wind their way through the shady interior of the island, leading to the 125 rooms housed in single or double bungalows, which blend harmoniously with their surroundings.

The island is large enough to allow each of these spacious bungalows to be built individually, thus providing adequate privacy for the occupants.
