A Calm Reserve In The Maldives

A Calm Reserve In The Maldives


One of the newest additions to the exclusive UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll in the Republic of the Maldives, Vakkaru Maldives – meaning coconut timber in Dhivehi - is an untouched jewel, located on a reef island with uninterrupted 360 degree views, powder soft, brilliant white sand, deep blue holes and unique marine biodiversity.

A scenic 30-minute journey north of Male International Airport by seaplane, Vakkaru Maldives is fashioned to epitomise an idyllic, sustainable environment of pared-back luxury that draws on rich Maldivian design traditions and fused with the finest natural resources.

The luxurious destination boasts an extensive selection of accommodation which includes 113 beach and over water villas and suites, as well as a spectacular and exceptionally unique four-bedroom over water private residence, housing up to eight adults. Each villa and suite offers intelligent connectivity features, organic bathroom amenities, indoor and outdoor showers as well as private beachfront or overwater terrace.

With no shortage of choice, guests are offered an array of indulgent dining choices across their six restaurants and bars and their spectacular wine cellar, all practicing sustainable local purchasing, with a portion of the fruit, vegetables and herbs being sourced from The Organic Farm. Choices range from authentic Italian at Isoletta to South East Asian at Onu and global cuisine with Maldivian twist at Amaany and specialty grilled meat and seafood at Vakku. Meanwhile, the Vakkaru Reserve, the resort’s wine cellar, offers private dining experiences. Guests can select from a variety of limited-edition wines from around the world, as well as signature fine dining and array of cheeses and charcuterie. All restaurants and bars epitomise ‘island chic’ and are set amongst crystal clear water, white sand and tropical gardens, home to over 2,300 fully grown coconut trees.

Reaching a state of complete relaxation, guests are invited to unwind at the luxurious overwater Merana Spa that features both couple and single treatment rooms, a hair and nail salon, spa boutique and wellness area. All treatments are inspired by ancient rituals and infused with quality ingredients from nature including the Vakkaru Signature Journey, an immersive full-body journey by the finest natural healing and moisturising elements of the coconut including a heated coconut shell massage.

Boasting umpteen unexplored dive sites and legendary fishing spots, Vakkaru’s on-site dive and water sports -centre Splash offers a variety of excursions, activities and guided dives with their in-house marine biologist. Little islanders aged between 3 to 12 can also enjoy extensive kids’ facilities at Parrotfish Club, while teenagers and adults have 24-hour access to fun recreational activities at Coconut Club.

Vakkaru Maldives perfectly captures the timeless allure of the Maldives and guests are met with the warmth and affection of its people in this idyllic island retreat.
