Handhufushi Resort & Spa is the only resort built on Herathera Island, Addu Atoll. In Dhivehi, the Maldivian language, Herathera means a hideaway or sanctuary. It is here that we find the unspoiled natural beauty which helps us to forget the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and enjoy the peace and relaxation we seek on a holiday in the Maldives.
Herathera Island Resort or Han’dhufishi from J Resort, surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of white, sandy beach, is the only resort on the island of Herathera, a 20 minute speedboat transfer from Gan International Airport, on the island of Gan. Gan is about a 70 minute flight south of Hulhule International Airport, the main airport near Male’. After about 55 of the 70 minute flight, your flight crosses the equator then continues about 15 minutes to Gan.

I just visited Herathera Island resort a week ago. I was there for my honeymoon, and an amazing experience. The arrangement made was extremely good, right from the airport pickup till the drop off.

This was our first visit to the Maldives and we were tentative due to some poor reviews online. The flight was long but the sight greeting us at our destination was certainly worth it. Our Rep Vee met us and we travelled by speedboat to our island. It took my breath away! The staff were friendly and welcoming. The resort was fantastic.

I have just returned from Herathera Island Resort. It was very enjoyable,relaxing holiday. We had sea facing beach Villa, which must have been recently refurbished when the Resort changed hands this year.. Room was large and clean. AC could keep villa really cool even when outside temp. was high. staff in restaurant/bar was friendly with good service. Our tour operator had arranged for excellent Indian food with good variety everyday.
