The stage: crystal lagoon views, a sun-kissed deck, lush gardens. Sway in your Dhoni-shaped swing as the sun resurrects from the sea. Let toes sink into sand at this Maldives beach resort. Breathe. Inside, red accents explode amidst airy white interiors. High-tech toys and gourmet treats create an indoor playground, and the rain showers, your private waterfalls. For more, ring your personal Thakuru – your whim is our command.



It’s peaceful privacy at this Maldives pool villa. Sway in your Dhoni-shaped swing and let your toes tease the water. Immerse yourself in a romantic, open-air rain shower. Linger over an al fresco dinner lit by the moon, or provide your own shine with the fibre optic lights of your private pool.


An indoor-outdoor family oasis that opens onto powder-soft beach. Wake up to ocean views and the last of sunrise’s palette. Kids rollic in sunny day play on the beach. Grown-ups splash in your private pool, or drift into the horizon on a dhoni swing.


Indoors, there’s more to discover. Find your Deli-In, and let your tongue explore. The twang of pineapple. Salt from fresh popcorn, lingering on your lips like seawater. Velvety salmon, smoked and sophisticated, or the creamy milk chocolate of childhood. Your favourite melody surrounds you, high-tech speakers filling in every note. Before bed, slip under the rain shower, and let rivulets of water stream down your body like soft caresses.


Two sumptuous bedrooms. A jungle-fringed deck. Lush. Lavish. Secluded. The perfect backdrop on which to design your days. Curl up with a book and green garden breezes, or venture into the ocean to snorkel and splash. Light up the night with a playful pool party, where the water comes alive with fibre optic lights and underwater speakers, or go low-key with surf-and-turf by starlight.


Get away and come together in a private paradise for the whole family. Kids rollick in sunny day play on your own beach. Grown-ups enjoy lounging and libations or a hard-earned massage in the villa’s private treatment room. Two private pools provide for both parental privacy and serious splashing.


Lounge on your private deck and gaze on it like a painting: Swipes of turquoise, azure, lapis brushed across a canvas of sky and sea. The billow of an ivory sail catching the breeze. Tiny diamonds of light on the pool’s surface.


An over-water ocean haven with plenty of space to play. Wake to glimmers of dappled light on the lagoon and descend into its cool waters. Lounge on the deck. Plunge into your private pool by day and slip into your starlit Jacuzzi when night falls.


Explore the expansive in your own overwater Maldivian playground. Make friends with the fish beneath your villa. Bronze on the deck. Float to infinity. If the heat pierces, seek refuge under the shady arc of a floating daybed, or retreat to a living room full of high-tech toys. When the stars come out to play, join them in the outdoor Jacuzzi, cocktail in hand.


Live the life of ultimate Maldivian leisure. Drift away embraced by a floating cocoon. Let your eyes skim the water. The cool blue of the infinity pool bleeds to the azure of the ocean. A soft ‘clink’ of champagne glasses strikes a high harmony in the symphony of ocean waves and tropical birds.



Huddled together offshore, a quintet of extraordinary villas forms a secluded overwater playground. Close to the action but far from the bustle, up to 14 adults and eight children can experience a holiday fantasyland amidst azure skies, turquoise sea. Here, the island comes alive for you. Grills sizzle at your private barbeque and movie under the stars. Boduberu drums beat. A Dream Dhoni glides you towards the sinking orange orb on a sunset cruise.
