The Republic of the Maldives is an archipelago of 1,192 mostly pearl shaped islands, formed in 20 natural atolls situated vertically across the equator. Of the 1,192 islands, 199 islands are inhabited and currently 101 are operating as resorts. The total population from the 2009 census is 396,334. The total area including the land and sea is approximately 90,000sq km and the archipelago stretches 820 km in length with the widest point being just 130 km.
Malé is the capital of the Maldives with a land area of approximately 1.92sq km with a population of 103,693 residents. Malé is the main trading centre and thus the main point of contact with the outside world.
The Sanskrit word “Maladiv” means a garland of islands. With its natural charm and beauty, the Maldives is widely described as the last paradise on earth.
Vabbinfaru Island is located 17 km North West from Malé International Airport. It occupies three hectares of a formerly uninhabited island with a natural beach all around the island. “Vabbin” in Dhivehi (the language spoken in the Maldives), meaning round land, and “Faru” meaning reef, describe the nature of the island.
Encircled by a white powdery beach, 48 elegantly rustic villas are nestled on a coral atoll in the Indian Ocean. Every air-conditioned villa has one bedroom with an open terrace, four-poster king-sized bed, recessed sitting area, daybed, open-air jet pool and private sundeck. For families or small groups travelling together, the resort recommends the Vabbinfaru Villas complemented by a private pavilion in the garden.
Uniquely designed to reflect a seashell spiral, the understated elegance of conical thatched roof villas imparts a sense of traditional Maldivian magic. Special care was taken during construction in order to protect the coral reefs, by importing pre-fabricated villa elements by light boat; in addition, the villas' designs maximise natural light and sea breezes.
The Oceanview Villa delivers unparalleled privacy with its very own open-air jet pool on a wooden patio. Immerse yourself in the bubbling waters of the jet pool and feel the tension seep away from your body as you drift off in a luxurious king sized bed to the sound of waves lapping on the picture-perfect shores. With a total 180sqm, your sampler experience won't be anything but luxe.
Deluxe Oceanview Villa
The Deluxe Oceanview Villa invites you to relish the heavenly tranquility of an enchanting garden from your own pavilion. The secluded garden setting of this category is treasured for its generous space measuring 220sqm, privacy and shady greenery. The beach peeps through the leaves and entices you to soak up a golden tan; laze around and see your footsteps disappear in the sand as the winds blow from the sea. In addition to the outdoor jet pool, an outdoor shower brings you closer to nature.
With its private outdoor jet pool and sundeck, the Beachfront Villa is ideally suited for a romantic getaway. Within this 120sqm space, watch the spectacular ocean vista unfold from the terrace, while the balmy sea breeze cools the room. Or step onto the silky sand of the beach and swim above the virtually untouched house reef with its glorious display of color.
