Introducing Finolhu the new retro-chic kid on the Maldives block! Full of quirky charm this retro-inspired paradise island is beckoning all fun-loving beach lovers. With a fresh new take on a holiday to the Maldives, here are 10 reasons why Turquoise loves Finolhu…

1. Retro Chic Décor

The retro décor with its eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary designs brings a timeless sense of style to the pristine lagoons and rich waters of the Maldives’ Baa Atoll.

2. Quirky Details

We adore the quirky finishing touches to every room- our favourites are the ‘Press for Champagne’ dial telephone (we want one for our office!) and vintage Marshall speaker- you can even tune into Baa Baa FM the island’s radio station, take a listen for yourself!


3. Feel good disco vibes

The ex-Ministry of Sound DJ at Finolhu knows how to get the disco-funk vibes going. You’ll find him, with his decks set up in a quirky (turquoise!) VW Campervan, playing feel good tunes to get everyone on their feet!


4. The Cove Club

The Cove Club bohemian-chic inspired spa, a totally chilled out retro revival area where pastel-coloured treatment cottages are called “divans” and named after Sixties divas, like Aretha Franklin, Shirley Bassey and Kate Bush!  There’s even a pop art portrait of each woman inside each chandelier-lit treatment rooms!
