Just as the world opens up to international travel again, the global hospitality company Jumeirah has introduced a new Maldives luxury villa resort to tempt us, Jumeirah Maldives.
The all-villa luxury resort tucked away in the crystalline turquoise waters of the North Malé Atoll will welcome its first guests from 1st October 2021.
Easily reachable by speedboat or seaplane from Malé Airport, its idyllic location offers privacy for romantic getaways, a blissful island retreat for friends and family and experiences to suit the more active traveller.
The resort’s surprising panoramic architecture and calming interiors are the work of the sophisticated Singaporean design studio, Miaja. They have created an elegant contemporary ethos in harmony with the natural environment. The design echoes modern Mediterranean chic, setting it apart from the more traditional island retreats.
José Silva, Chief Executive Officer of Jumeirah Group, said: “The Maldives is a much-loved getaway for travellers from around the world and Jumeirah Maldives is a destination that delivers on our brand promise of Stay Different™. The resort offers unparalleled hospitality with a genuine flair that exceeds guest expectations while pushing the limits of design, culinary and service expertise. A truly breath-taking addition to the brand’s portfolio, Jumeirah Group’s new home in the Maldives guarantees an immaculate guest experience right from the very moment they set foot in our new contemporary resort.”
Jumeirah Maldives offers 67 beach and over-water villas in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. Obviously, every villa boasts stunning panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
Maldives Luxury Villa Resort
Starting from 171sqm, the resort’s villas are among the most spacious in the North Malé Atoll. Each villa features a private infinity pool and a large roof-top terrace. The dedicated dining area allows you to take in the sensational views while indulging in delicious culinary dishes. The roof terraces are also perfect for enjoying a picture-perfect movie-under-the-stars experience. The three-bedroom villas also boast their own gym.
Certainly, the villa interiors are truly breathtaking. Bathing the space in natural light, the oversized windows frame the verdant flora and palm-fringed beaches or dramatic ocean views. As a matter of fact, you will feel harmoniously connected to the natural environment, a calming and positive vibe.
Textured walls, local artworks and handcrafts create a sense of purity and simplicity amid the organic surroundings. Since the Jumeirah Group’s signature luxury amenities and bedding are also part of the mix, you are sure to feel pampered.
If gastronomy is high on your list of holiday must-haves, then you will be happy to know that the Jumeirah Group has you covered. In fact, two of their award-winning signature restaurants, Shimmers and Kayto, infuse the island experience with exquisite Mediterranean and Nikkei flavours.
Delivering the ultimate in casual alfresco dining, Shimmers features Chef Roberto Rispoli’s exquisite cuisine. The fantastic fare is set against a backdrop of amazing sunrises and breathtaking ocean views. A resident DJ and regular live music performances ensure a chilled vibe.
Kayto, on the other hand, will captivate you over dinner. The impressive open kitchen allows you to witness the team’s culinary mastery.
