VICEROY opens ultra luxury resort in Maldives

Viceroy Maldives, which is due to open April 2nd, is an ultra luxury resort  comprising of 61 Villas with 32 over the water and 29 on the beach. Each Villa is designed with the intent to have maximum privacy, either on the lagoon or on the beach by providing ample distance between each of the villas to maintain intimacy and space for the guests. The resort’s 61 villas resemble the hull of an inverted Maldivian “dhoni” (a traditional fishing boat) and occupy the vast areas on the beach and lagoon.

Caught in the embrace of the Indian Ocean, the five distinct dining venues capture the essence of Europe, the “Spice Trade Routes” from Asia to Africa.

In the over-water Spa Villas, guests can choose from curated program options that embrace services such as , specialized massage techniques, yoga practices and dietary guidance. Viceroy Signature Journeys, a carefully chosen series of Ayurvedic, regional and traditional treatments, gently guide the guest from simple relaxation to a state of complete renewal. The spa’s aim is for guests to reclaim an inner harmony through holistic therapies harnessed from the sun, the ocean and native culture.

Viceroy Maldives is located in Shaviyani Atoll, 192 km from the capital island of Malé and the International Airport. On the Maldives’ uncharted northern edge, the resort is located on the private island of Vagaru, over 17 acres of palm trees and pristine sand encircling a blue lagoon. Access to Vagaru is easily accommodated via seaplane taxi, less than an hour’s flight from the main island of Malé.
