Vakkaru Maldives

The hotel data

Perfect for travellers who delight in snorkelling and scuba diving, Vakkaru Maldives is on a secluded reef island within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll that is rich with marine biodiversity. Amazingly, this natural paradise is just half an hour from Malé airport by seaplane.

Vakkaru is characterised by its elegant yet earthy aesthetic. The rooms are an elevated take on local architecture with modern interiors decorated in warm, sandy tones. There are 54 beach villas and residences and 59 over-water options for those seeking an extra-special romantic hideaway. All accommodation options are spacious and indulgent with several spaces for relaxation, and most have a sizeable plunge pool.

Spend your days by or under the sea, exploring the magnificent in-house reef or further afield where whale sharks and manta rays can be found. Scuba diving is particular rewarding, and there are a host of other water-sports on offer. Indoor facilities include gym, games room, children’s club and spa. Six restaurants, two bars, and a wine cellar provide a range of special refreshments during your stay.
