Jumeirah Vittaveli

This Maldives resort offers a uniquely luxurious experience with spectacular accommodation, thoughtful hospitality, and iridescent waters and soft sandy beaches on your doorstep.

The atmosphere is relaxed, and all suites and villas are designed with comfort down to the last detail. The quality and sense of space of the rooms is matched by the exterior spaces, which feature private pools, decks and a host of other amenities. The views from the rooftop of the Two Bedroom Beach Suites are majestic, and the Water Villas offer a tranquil setting, with daybeds outside to recline on.

The Samsara restaurant serves creative, fresh dishes with international influences and excellent sea views, and Mu offers succulent barbecued fare sourced locally. At Fenesse, fresh Mediterranean dishes are served in a magical setting on the water, under the stars.

There are sea trails to discover, and adventures to be had on the water, with snorkelling, canoeing, windsurfing and diving. The Talise Spa offers the perfect opportunity to indulge in some pampering, with therapists who use native ingredients and signature treatments to cleanse, revive and restore.
