Amilla Maldives Introduces its New Feathered Friends!

Cluckingham Palace at amilla maldives
It may be nothing new to see stylish ladies arriving at Amilla Maldives but there's certainly something unique about these 'Islanders'.

Easter week saw 59 ‘hot chicks’ arriving at Amilla Fushi Maldives Resort and Residences and taking up residence at the island’s newest abode – Cluckingham Palace. They have been joined at their residence by one lucky fellow named ‘Cluck Norris’.

It may be nothing new to see stylish ladies arriving at Amilla Fushi but there’s certainly something unique about these ‘Islanders’. Measuring about 27 inches tall and decked head to tail in glossy feathers, these girls are a truly egg-citing addition to the island.

We’re talking about the 59 hens and one rooster that have arrived at Amilla Fushi just in time for Easter, of course. The resort temporarily closed to guests last month due to the coronavirus pandemic, but a team of Amilla Islanders including General Manager, Jason Kruse, and Sustainability Manager, Victoria Kruse, have stayed on the island in order to work on a host of new projects – including Cluckingham Palace. The Islanders – who are safely quarantined from the outside world celebrated their new arrival with bubbles and beer.

The new chicken residence is fit for royalty. It is tucked away on a secluded part of the island, surrounded by lush tropical foliage which helps to keep the area shaded and cool for the feathered friends. The chickens are now settling in, and when guests return to the island after its grand reopening on 1st July, will help provide the freshest of eggs to Amilla’s renowned kitchens.

Cluckingham Palace project is part of Amilla Maldives’ Homemade@Amilla and Homegrown@Amilla concepts, which involve growing and making fresh food right there on the island. The fresh eggs are also a tasty addition to Amilla’s paleo, keto, and low-lectin ‘Wellness Your Way’ dishes. The host of specialty dishes have been added to the main menus in order to cater to the dietary demands of today’s guests. Amilla is the first resort in the Maldives to pioneer a comprehensive array of ‘eating lifestyle’ dishes.
