Divine eco friendly resort with unpretentious, upmarket splendour and an exceptional house reef.

A mere 25 minutes by seaplane from Malé International Airport in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, Vakkaru Maldives Resort is a beautiful teardrop-shaped island paradise of palm-lined beaches, footprint-free powder white sands and lush, tropical vegetation, with more than 1,400 fully-grown coconut trees.

Opened in December 2017, Vakkaru is a luxury property that has been built with fastidious care to protect the natural environment. Therefore the interior of the island has extra lush and mature foliage and the extensive house reef is undisturbed, despite quite a number of over water villas.

The land and over water villas are state-of-the-art and beautifully appointed, offering spacious, contemporary, understated luxury. Service is excellent, from the efficient, unobtrusive butlers through to mixologists behind the bar. Dining options are excellent; from traditional feet-in-the-sand tables at the main restaurant to the open air Vakku Grill, with dinner under the beach pergolas. All are unpretentious but sublime.

It is possible to walk to the superb house reef via the water villa jetty, near the blue hole. The corals have survived recent bleaching events better than many other reefs so shoals of fish abound, with sharks and eagle rays to be found along the drop off from the dive jetty. Magical.

Facilities

If anyone should tire of relaxing on the pristine sands…

Its UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status means snorkelling and diving should be on the top of every list. There’s a rich house reef, a PADI certified scuba-dive centre and expeditions with the residence marine biologist. A quick 10 minute private speedboat excursion to Turtle Point brings snorkelers close to a multitude of turtles.

Alternatively, select from a generous choice of water sports at Splash or a full schedule of activities for all ages at The Parrotfish Club, The Coconut Club, sports fields, overwater Gymnasium or Merana Spa.

Four restaurants – Amaany for international buffet; Vakku Grill is steaks and seafood; Onu for Asian Chic and Isoletta for classic Italian. Complemented by two lovely bars. There’s also the occasional Vakkaru Reserve tastings for limited edition wines paired with cheese and charcuterie.
