Luxury Loama Resort opens on Maamigili island in the Maldives
Loama Resort Maldives at Maamigili is a teardrop-shaped private island that was once the playground of ancient kings; part of the northernmost and largely undiscovered Raa Atoll and representing the final frontier of the Maldives, where absolute seclusion can be secured.
As for the resort’s anticipated Spa, guests can enjoy treatments in either the Beach Villas surrounded by the beauty of Maldivian skyline or in one of the glass-bottomed Ocean Villa rooms offering views into crystal clear waters below during a well deserved massage.
The resort’s over-water villas perch elegantly on poles above the shimmering turquoise shallows of the Indian Ocean, while its beach villas offer contemporary style with charming and authentically Maldivian touches. Each room comes with its own Maldivian name that reflects its heritage, history and significance in the culture of the Maldives. Elaborate roofs of thatched coconut and traditional Maldivian ornamentation help immerse guests in a culturally rich environment, while modern conveniences such as an outdoor deck and rain showers add a touch of contemporary sophistication.
As a tribute to the opulent ancestry found in the Maldives the resort has established the Maldives’ first gallery of contemporary Maldivian art, Loama Art Gallery, in a stunning over-water pavilion near the resort’s main arrival pier and with the blessing of the National Art Gallery of Maldives in Male.
It already houses an important collection of artefacts from key periods of Maldivian history, from an extensive collection of 15th century Chinese porcelain to the discovery of a pair of 11th century sunken baths on the island.
The resort features six gastronomic havens, each offering a distinct epicurean experience.
