Imagine making your way over the sparkling blue waters of the Indian Ocean to arrive at your destination – a luxury resort atop of white sandy beaches, scattered with over-water bungalows so beautifully isolated that you need a boat to reach them. The Jumeirah Resort in the Maldives has the ability to turn the most luxurious dreams into reality, and here’s why.
The Maldives is home to some of the world’s most beautiful resort destinations, with Jumeirah Vittaveli being among the best. The resort includes a collection of 91 suites and villas, all featuring amenities such as their own private massage room, direct beach access, and private pools.
Those who wish to splurge spectacularly can spend a night in the resort’s presidential suite, which is about three times the size of a tennis court and features an outdoor shower, a spa, and two private swimming pools. This luxury experience doesn’t come cheap though, expect to spend anywhere between $1,200 USD and $10,000 USD per night at this resort, but who can put a price on luxury, right?
How to get there
Located on the South Male Atoll, one of only 200 populated islands in the Maldives, Jumeirah Vittaveli is a resort that combines accessibility with luxury and privacy. From the capital of Male, you can reach the resort by a short 20-minute boat ride from the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport.
What to do
Whether you are seeking a romantic getaway or an exotic destination for your family, enjoy an experience worthy of the idyllic island the Jumeirah Resort calls home. Lounge on white sandy beaches, re-energise in the signature spa, feast on decadent dishes, or simply relax in the intimate space of your own Maldivian hideaway.
The resort is a hub of activity, but the focus here is on relaxation. You can spend hours on the sea-facing trails, or seek adventure on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean by snorkeling, canoeing, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, or diving. For a change of pace, stretch out by the poolside, or indulge in a pampering treatment from the world-class Talise signature spa.
The spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort offers signature treatments delivered by experienced spa therapists in rooms on land and over water. Treatments at Talise Vittaveli are inspired by the elements of light and space, connecting with the purity of their ingredients which are hand-harvested by local communities using traditional farming methods. Romantic spaces for couples are available, and the spa menu offers an abundance of individual treatments.
Where to eat
Whether you’re in the mood for cocktails at sunset or lunch by the water, you can enjoy a dining experience fit for the beauty of the Maldives by choosing one of the three restaurants at Jumeirah, as well as a beach-side cocktail bar.
When it comes to special occasions, the clear waters and white sandy beaches of the Maldives are hard to beat. The island’s natural beauty is the perfect backdrop to any special occasion, and the team of wedding coordinators and event planners at the Jumeirah Resort can take care of everything, meaning there’s more time to soak up the paradise around you and celebrate life’s most special moments.
The Jumeirah honeymoon package ties the best of the resort together. Enjoy a Champagne breakfast, signature couple’s massage, and a four course dinner on the beach. Visit http://www.jumeirah.com/ for more information.
