Virgin Holidays View
The only island resort in the unspoilt Faafu Atoll, guests can experience true barefoot luxury at the Filitheyo! Surrounded by a stunning house reef, water sports are a big attraction with divers able to hone their skills at the acclaimed Werner Lau Diving Centre. There’s also snorkelling, windsurfing, fishing or simply splashing about in warm, crystal clear waters. Thatched-roof villas are scattered round the edge of this island paradise, blending perfectly with the natural environment and offering plenty of space and comfort. Mod-cons ensure a home-from-home experience with the added bonus of gorgeous scenery on your doorstep, enjoyed from your private veranda of course! A visit to the local spa is a must, offering a range of Balinese massages and treatments to leave you feeling on top of the world. Other activities include volleyball and table tennis or simply lounging by the swimming pool, soaking up the sun. The main restaurant is a sumptuous affair with buffet dishes to suit every taste and mood. There’s also the Sunset Restaurant & Bar for lighter fare and the Filitheyo Bar for some very exotic cocktails. Evening entertainment is always fun with low-key discos for those intent on throwing a few shapes and cultural shows for all the family to enjoy.
