Vakkaru Maldives

Vakkaru Maldives is a secluded tropical island resort located within the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Only 30 minutes north of Male International Airport by seaplane, Vakkaru – meaning coconut timber in Dhivehi – is an unforgettable paradise intuitively designed for travellers seeking an intimate getaway in arguably one of the most desirable island destinations on the planet.

Boasting powder soft, brilliant white sand, crystal clear turquoise water, 360-degree uninterrupted views and sprawling coral reefs with unique marine biodiversity, guests can revel in the choice of 113 beach and over water villas and suites, as well as five sensational restaurants, two bars, a wine cellar and an outstanding array of treatments in the over-the-water Merana Spa. Facilities also include Splash water sports and dive center that offers daily excursions and dive courses with PADI certified instructors. Sportsfields features two tennis courts, a badminton court with compliments, while tennis coach and playing partner is available upon request.

The Parrotfish Club for children between 3 to 12 years features indoor and outdoor playground along with daily activities conducted by certified team members. Guests have 24/7 access to an overwater gymnasium with personal trainer and daily fitness and wellness programmes. Keeping the natural beauty of the island as unspoilt as possible – including retaining over 2,300 fully grown coconut trees – and drawing on the rich traditions of the locale, design elements are focused on Maldivian style fused with the finest natural resources and local architecture, with a contemporary style to ensure a completely authentic experience.
