Strung out like pearls in the Indian Ocean, the over-water villas of Jumeirah Vittaveli promise an idyllic once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience. As the site encourages you, you can “lie on white sandy beaches, re-energize in our signature spa, feast on decadent dishes, or simply relax in the intimate space of your lush Maldivian hideaway.” Located on one of only 200 populated Maldives islands, this resort combines easy access — a mere 20-minute boat ride from the airport at Male — with an atmosphere of privacy, a delightful “castaway” feeling with the panorama of ocean and sky all around you. Of course, you’re not truly a castaway; not with amenities like three restaurants, beachside cocktail bar, private swimming pool, and a ready array of water sports available to you such as deep-sea fishing, diving, kayaking, or kite surfing!
Other amenities here include a top-of-the-line spa, over-water gym, children’s play areas, and sumptuous private dining in the confines of your personal space. “Confines” may be a misnomer, in fact; open-air luxury and island charm are part of every villa or suite here, from personal sundecks and living/lounge areas to deep soaking tubs that allow you to bathe in the midst of breathtaking scenery. Thatched roofs, swaying palms, gossamer-fine bed canopies, and the ultimate in island craftsmanship are trademarks of this luxurious haven, as is a careful and attentive staff whose aim is to anticipate your every need before you’ve even spoken it. Whether you’re in the mood for sampling island cuisine, a quick swim or boat ride, or just a refreshing nap, you’ll be cosseted in complete comfort and style at Jumeirah Vittaveli.
