London, 6 March 2019: The bubble tent concept is being elevated to a whole new level in the Maldives this year, as luxury resort trendsetter Amilla Fushi debuts its new Skyhouse with Bubble accommodation –tranquil treetop eyries with their own private transparent Bubble, breathtakingly suspended 12 metres up between a canopy of lush palms and the vast Maldivian skies. The first Skyhouse with Bubble was officially opened by the Maldives’ Minister for Tourism, Ali Waheed, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at ITB Berlin today, 6 March 2019.

Encircled by swaying palms, and measuring 4 metres in diameter, the Bubble’s interior will feature custom-fitted wooden floors, a rotating daybed, telescope, Bang & Olufsen soundsystem and bespoke furnishings. A removable cover provides solar protection during the day - and come nightfall, unfettered views of the star-studded heavens above. In addition to this spectacularly heightened hideaway, the enchanting 220sqm Skyhouse also boasts serene living spaces; a private infinity pool cantilevered out amongst the treetops; and a spacious bathroom. Formerly known as Tree Houses, Amilla’s five Skyhouses are available in one- or two-bedroom configurations, providing an ideal treetop hideaway for families and couples alike.

Conceived and custom-designed by Eye In The Sky, the transparent inflatable Bubbles are constructed with super-strong, high tech polyester fabric using exclusive Précontraint Serge Ferrari® technology. UV-protected, fully waterproof and climate-controlled, the Bubbles create an inspiring environment where guests can enjoy a uniquely immersive, closer-to-nature experience - without compromising on high-spec design and luxurious creature comforts.

Rates for Amilla Fushi’s new immersive SkyHouse with Bubble Experience are available on request, including accommodation; specially designed destination dinner; and breakfast served in the SkyHouse with Bubble, based on two adults sharing.
