Richa Chadha gets a Surprise Birthday Getaway from Ali Fazal at Fushifaru Maldives


Fushifaru Maldives welcomed Bollywood actress Richa Chadha and her boyfriend Ali Fazal who surprised her with a romantic getaway vacation for her 32nd birthday.

The destination was a complete surprise to Richa who was whisked away by her “bae” Ali to the magical island of Maldives. Richa reflected on her Facebook page as she “took a seaplane taxi for the first time, to get to @fushifaru Maldives… “in the unlikely event of a water landing” were words I had just heard on flights before, what they don’t tell you is that it’s so much fun! (Hehe, only in this case)! Such a warm welcome from the smiling faces at the resort! Really you can’t help but be full of joy, this place is so serene and beautiful!”

From the moment the celebrity couple arrived, they were welcomed by a traditional Boduberu and Sangu (conch) ceremony by Resident Hosts who shared the heartfelt warmth of the Maldivian spirit upon arrival.

The following day, they discovered the abundant marine life at the ‘turtle quest’ expedition where they swam up close and personal with turtles. Richa and Ali disconnected from their busy filming schedules with a relaxing massage at Heylhi Spa and celebrated Richa’s birthday with a romantic private sandbank dinner. Richa was captivated by the clear skies at night and laid on the sand until midnight watching the moon and stars. “Fushifaru Maldives was breathtaking and we can’t wait to come back, it was one of the most enriching experiences of my life!” exclaimed Richa and Ali.

Located on the eastern fringe of Lhaviyani Atoll, a 35-minute scenic Seaplane ride away, this little island rests between two channels connecting the atoll's inner lagoon to the outer sea, whilst a large sandbank lies on one side. Fushifaru Kan’du is a national Marine Protected Area. Only a few meters from the island is three major dive sites including the renowned Fushifaru Thila, one of the Maldives most iconic dive spots and a marine cleaning station, where sums of cleaner fish draw in underwater creatures like Manta Rays, Turtles and many more.

Merging Maldivian design and architecture with modern aesthetics, Fushifaru Maldives’ beach and water villas exude a sense of coziness yet luxurious in space and amenities.

Guests will dine at Korakali for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Raakani Grill for signature Asian recipes with a focus on the finest local varieties of seafood and Fanihandhi Bar for sunrise lounging and sunset cocktails.

Heylhi Spa, wellness sanctuary will soothe any tired soul whilst the multi-sports court and various exciting water activities will keep guests vibrant with energy.
