I have already outlined 5 of the best luxury resorts in the Maldives, however if you like a hotel that is brand new, you must choose one of the below!
1. The St. Regis Vommuli Resort, Maldives
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide recently opened (Nov 16) the first St. Regis brand in the Maldives. Located on Dhaalu Atoll Vommuli, the St. Regis Vommuli Resort offers 77 private villas will include majestic manta ray shaped lagoon villas and the John Jacob Astor Estate, one of the largest villas in the Maldives, which will span 1,540 square metres and feature a 92m private pool, as well as a spa room, fitness area and mini theatre. The resort will offer six distinct dining venues, a 24-hour butler service for all guests, a nature discovery centre and a dive centre.
2. Four Seasons Private Island Maldives At Voavah, Maldives
Four Seasons has just opened its first exclusive-use hideaway in the stunning Maldives, the Four Seasons Private Island Maldives At Voavah, Baa Atoll.
Much like Richard Bransons Necker Island, this Four Seasons Luxury Private Island is rented out as a whole or “entirely yours”. With seven bedrooms, a Beach House, dive school and a private spa extend the oceanic spoils of the Maldives’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, you and 21 other guests can enjoy days in the double-storey Beach House and adjacent white sands.
Dive with whale sharks, snorkel with manta rays, swim with neighbourhood turtles, fish for your dinner, visit local islands and cruise into breathtaking Baa Atoll sunsets.
3. Soneva Jani
The resort features 24 spacious villas, each with a private pool, as well as a private island villa for those who seek a truly exclusive retreat, with the master bedrooms boasting retractable roofs made from sustainable materials, so that guests can sleep under the stars without having to leave their beds. Some of the villas even feature a huge water slide into the Indian Ocean.
4. Milaidhoo Island Maldives
The brand new Milaidhoo Island Maldives, opened in November 2016. 30 over-water villas and 20 additional villas sit among the tropical greenery along the beach. Each villa comes complete with private freshwater swimming pool and your own personal concierge.
Idyllic beaches, world famous diving and snorkeling, fishing trips and cultural excursions are just some of the activities Milaidhoo will offer. This is a place to take it easy and take a dip with your dolphin, whale shark and manta ray neighbours within this protected marine area.
5. Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa
Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa, is located in the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll. This hotel is brand new and opened in November 2016.
