The Perfect Private Island Retreat

Create unforgettable memories with a luxury private beach holiday in the Maldives

Wake up to the gentle sound of the Indian Ocean before wandering through the elegant living and dining rooms to your private deck to greet friends and family staying in luxury private villas. Swim in one of two private pools, before indulging in an exquisite breakfast prepared by a personal chef.

After a morning spent relaxing in the lavish surroundings, head out on a luxury private yacht to spot dolphins leaping in the waves, picnic on a deserted sandbank, or dive into the deep blue in search of hidden treasures in ships sunk off the shores of the Vittaveli. Sun kissed return to the private jetty where the barman has prepared your favourite drink.

Dine al fresco at your private restaurant overlooking the lagoon where a personal chef prepares succulent dishes using the freshest locally sourced ingredients, or flown in, if you wish. Share heart-warming stories with your friends and family until the early morning hours, while you count the infinite stars in the sky. Look forward to another unforgettable day in your private island hideaway in the Maldives.


Luxury private villas with pool in the Maldives: the Royal Residence

Set on the far end of the island, the Royal Residence offers the ultimate privacy and tranquillity. Exquisite choice and seamless service shape this private island paradise, where every element has been uniquely created and designed.

The Royal Residence comprises five bedrooms and six bathrooms, spanning over 3,500 square metres. The host enjoys the beautifully designed Sanctuary while family and friends share one of two luxury one-bedroom Villas and the two-storey, two-bedroom Guest House. Two private pools and a sunken lounge area provide plenty of space to enjoy quality time together.

The Residence's living and dining pavilion leads out onto an expansive deck wrapped around a designer pool. A sunken lounge is surrounded by a fragrant lily pond, looking out over the ocean.

Beachside dining is available at the Residence's private restaurant overlooking the private lagoon.

The Residence can also be booked in three bedroom configuration, with the same facilities as above except the two-bedroom Guest House.


Resort Access

Royal Residence guests enjoy privacy whilst having access to Jumeirah Vittaveli's facilities and activities. With its focus on understated luxury and cultural connection, the resort offers guests an authentic Maldivian island experience. Inspired by local fishing villages, luxury villas blend natural coral walls and bamboo decoration with stunning interiors that feature wooden furniture and selected artworks.

Four restaurants offer everything from French fine dining to barbecues on the beach, experience the wonders of scuba diving or visit the luxury over water Talise spa, voted Best Luxury Wellness Spa in 2016, where treatments use pure Maldivian coconut oil produced on site and harvested from coconuts from the island.
