Surely at the top, or very close to, of everyone’s bucket list is the Maldives. With over 150 resorts in the Maldives, it’s a bit of a minefield as to where to go. Finding the resort to suit what you are looking for is what we do, whether it be relaxing in your overwater villa, diving below the surface swimming with whale sharks, or knowing that your children are living the best life… let us help.
Below we round up just some of our favorites.
One&Only Reethi Rah
rooms from GBP 2,000 per night
Surrounded by the wonders of the Indian Ocean, One&Only Reethi Rah makes its home on one of the largest islands in North Malé Atoll. A jewel among a string of coral atolls, lagoons and white sands, it is about 700km (430mi) southwest of Sri Lanka.
At One&Only Reethi Rah, we are aware that certain resort operations may impede on the environment and community if not managed properly. The resort team strives towards minimising our environmental footprint by implementing sustainable initiatives and action plans to reduce the use of energy and water as well as effectively managing waste.
rooms from GBP 1,950 per night
Designed in an authentic style, built using eco-friendly materials, and blended seamlessly into the remarkable landscape of a natural environment, our overwater villas create a sophisticated and intimate ambiance where guests are able to feel truly at home.
All our buildings are constructed using sustainably-sourced plantation teak, palm wood, bamboo, and palm fronds (much of which was harvested during the island rehabilitation process) in addition to recycled telegraph poles. All rooms provide organic toiletries in refillable earthenware containers, to minimise plastics use and wastage. The island’s dedicated desalination plant provides bottled still and sparkling water for all guests.
rooms from GBP 2,050 per night
Joali offers two spectacular islands in the Maldives, nestled in a dreamscape of shimmering lagoons, ivory sands, and lush palms. While both properties share a common vision, each has its own distinct identity. Joali Maldives is a wonderland of creativity, indulgence, and adventure. Here, travelers can experience the joy of living through an incredible collection of artworks that unfold across the island.
Ritz Carlton Maldives
rooms from GBP 1,250 per night
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands welcomes you to embrace island life. A distinguished ‘Aris Meeha’ or butler refined by the Ritz-Carlton service tailors a journey of meaningful moments. Immerse into Maldivian stories as Sangu shells are blown, and Boduberu drums are crafted. Transition from a day full of discoveries in North Malé Atoll into an evening of indulgence in your overwater villa and the resort surroundings.
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives Fari Islands’ sustainable gastronomy efforts include fresh produce from the garden, extensive plant-based options, and a zero-waste approach. The resort mainly operates on solar energy. Using reusable glass water bottles, bamboo-based personal consumables, and bamboo and stainless steel straws are part of the commitment to offering guests a plastic-free stay. The still and sparkling drinking water available on the island comes from the resort’s dedicated plant, with purifying patented water ﬁlters.
rooms from GBP 1,400 per night
OMO Maalifushi is the only resort to open in the Maldives’ Thaa Atoll, nestled in the archipelago’s southern reaches. With overwater villas and beach suites, it is, therefore, the ultimate away-from-it-all destination for families, couples, surfers, and divers. There are some excellent breaks nearby as well as a string of uninhabited private islands, where there are seasonal hammerhead and manta ray sightings.
COMO hotels are committed to celebrating local culture, supporting the domestic economy, and minimising our impact on the environment. Operating sustainably inspires and drives us to better serve our guests, develop our teams and plan for the future. These long-term goals are as important to us as creating memorable travel experiences for each of our guests.
Milaidhoo Island Hotel
rooms from GBP 1,810 per night
Opened in November 2016, Milaidhoo is a boutique luxury resort in the Baa Atoll UNESCO biosphere reserve, close to Hanifaru Bay, 126km northwest of Male. We’re perfect for nature lovers as our own coral reef, which encircles the island, is a protected area and noted as an outstanding snorkeling and diving site in its own right. Our tiny beautiful island, abundant with tropical greenery, measures just 300m by 180m and is fringed by soft deep white sand beaches.
With the hotel’s location in the UNESCO world biosphere reserve, conservation of the precious environment is one of our guiding philosophies. They are participants in the Green Globe certification process which sets strict standards, not just in our environmental actions, but also in ethical business behavior, fair trade, and compliance with international best practices and standards.
rooms from GBP 1,730 per night
The original desert island hideaway in the Maldives. Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 63 beachfront villas and eight Water Retreats, ranging in size from one to nine bedrooms. Founded on shared passions and masters of innovation, we are a thriving community working hand in hand with the environment to craft beautiful, beyond bespoke experiences where discovery is a way of life.
In 2008, we introduced a 2% environmental levy on all stays. This goes towards the Soneva Foundation, which invests in a variety of projects that have a positive environmental, social and economic impact, offsetting direct and indirect carbon emissions, such as resort activities and guest flights.
