The Maldives is known for its luxurious offerings, and its many plush resorts contribute a great deal for crafting a perfectly-opulent experience for its many visitors. Depending upon what you are seeking, these resorts have the potential to realise all your holiday dreams in this gorgeous Indian Ocean Island.


To each his own, but like us, if you too are a fan of beaches, here are our top recommendations for a perfect stay in the Maldives:

Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, North Male Atoll

Banyan Tree has everything that you can expect from a place of luxury escape in the Maldives. Your stay here ensures that the ocean is always just a walk of few steps from your room. A private jetpool and a poolside cabana make sure that you wash away any weariness you get from your diving adventures in the Maldives. Every villa comes with an outdoor shower that lets you stare into the ocean as you take a bath, solo or with your partner. The thatched roofs and the wooden pathways lend an elegant touch to the whole experience of staying at this 5-star beach front property.

Velassaru, North Male Atoll

Velassaru makes the ocean look more tempting with its glass doors and windows that let you see the waves for as long as your heart desires. When you choose to stay at Velassaru, you choose paramount opulence that comes to you in the form of a private courtyard with a garden shower and an ocean-facing day bed that is just perfect for that day you want to relax by the beach, soaking the sun for as long as the skies would permit.

Kandolhu, North Ari Atoll

The island of Kandolhu is known for its perfect white-sandy beaches, glorious vistas of the ocean and the most lively house reefs in the Maldives. Even by Maldivian standards, Kandolhu is quite picturesque and other-worldly. And the Kandolhu beach villas ensure that all that beauty is magnified and served to you on a platter during your stay here. The bedroom faces the pool and the blue lagoon beyond. The open-air bathroom is not only private and secluded; it also comes with an outdoor garden shower. No matter whether you want to sunbathe in privacy, or sleep on the white sands of the beach, the villa has provisions to make it all happen for you.

Niyama Maldives, Dhaalu Atoll

Niyama Maldives is dedicated to bring to life the most luxurious dreams of its visitors. The thatched-roof villas grant a private access to the pristine beach that is lined with palm trees. Unwind at your private pool villa surrounded by the greens, just the right place for staring into the blue ocean ahead while sipping your exquisite champagne. Read your favourite book at the Dhoni-shaped swing or just lie on the swing, soaking in the glorious sun. Have a romantic open-air shower with your partner and treat the both of you to a lovely dinner under the starlight on the beach.

Six Senses Laamu, Laamu Atoll

One of the most popular beach resorts in the Maldives, the Six Senses Laamu is the very definition of privacy and luxury. This two-bedroom beach villa is practically built on the ocean. Perfect for honeymoon as well as a rejuvenating holiday with your family, the Six Senses Laamu, as the name suggests, has arrangements to pamper all your senses. Featuring a private pool that gives a private access to the beach, the villa is created to feed your most vivid imaginations of a rejuvenating time in the Maldives.
