Angsana Ihuru is a tropical paradise in the Maldives, situated on one of the most picturesque islands in the Indian Ocean. Blessed with palm-fringed beaches, crystal clear waters and one of the best house reefs in the Maldives, the island is located just 20 minutes by speedboat from Male airport in North Male Atoll.

Follow dinner with cocktails at the Velaavani Bar overlooking the lagoon and house reef, keeping an eye out for turtles and dolphins as you sit back and relax.
