Finolhu

Preparing for the launch of Finolhu, the latest from The Small Maldives Island Co.

Having revolutionised the ‘typical Maldives resort’ concept with 2014’s game-changing launch of Amilla Fushi, The Small Maldives Island Co. looks set to confound expectations once again with the opening of sister resort Finolhu in mid-2016. To celebrate the soon-to-open property, the new Resort Manager, Rochelle Kilgariff, visited Sydney and invited media guests to a sumptuous lunch at Regatta Rose Bay on Friday 12 February.
