Beachfront and overwater villas, some with private pools, are wonderfully inviting, with high-slanted ceilings and luxurious interiors decorated in warm, earthy tones. Each of the beachfront Earth Villas comes with an outdoor deck, a tropical garden and an outdoor bathroom complete with monsoon shower and hand-crafted bathtub. If overwater is more your scene, look to the stunning Wind Villas for fresh, vibrant colour tones, standalone bathtubs and uninterrupted views of the lagoon. The two-bed Earth Pool Pavilions throw in a private pool with the magnificent OZEN Residence features a private kitchenette, an outdoor dining pavilion and its own maid’s living quarters – indulgent indeed.
If the accommodation stands out, the dining here is out of this world, showcasing cuisines from Italy, China, Sri Lanka and, of course the Maldives themselves. It’s all served across a range of spectacular venues, including the breezy main restaurant, a wonderfully laid-back poolside pizzeria and the simply unmissable underwater restaurant – M6m.
Then, there’s a full menu of activities to choose from, including a full spread of watersports, island-hopping excursions, PADI-certified diving and a superb spa and wellness centre. Here, guests can choose from a vast menu of treatments, carried out in a collection of luxurious overwater bungalows.
