Among the largest resort villas in the world, each is detached, expansive and equally luxurious. Designed with a contemporary elegance, their stylish feel is combined with a diverse Asian influence, blending clean lines with skilful use of natural materials such as coconut shell, sea grass, silk, rattan, teak, mahogany, terrazzo and thatch. Generous exterior spaces range from beach verandas to private swimming pools and large over-water decks. Each attended by a personal Villa Host, the freestanding villas feature the latest technologies and are designed with high airy ceilings complemented by bamboo arches, their spaciousness allowing for a variety of personal entertainment and dining options. Capturing the essence of the Maldives, the look and feel of each villa is sleek and elegantly tropical, using beautiful natural materials and contemporary styling together with the latest technologies and amenities.


A temple of exquisite dining, the dramatic design of Reethi Restaurant frames the natural beauty all around and the stunning cuisine, impeccable service and low-key ambience within. An eclectic menu fuses flavours from Asia Pacific and the Mediterranean into a light, contemporary cuisine. Swimmers and sunbathers needn't move far from the main pool to partake in the amazing menu at the adjacent Rah Bar. An all day menu of healthy salads, wraps and snacks also offers low-fat smoothies made with exotic fresh fruits and vegetables, a variety of waters and a fresh juice station. Compared to two of London's top Japanese restaurants, this over-water venue combines incredible sunset views with contemporary Japanese cuisine. For the purist, deliveries from Tokyo and Osaka coupled with the chef's hand-picked ingredients ensure sushi and sashimi meet the highest standards. Tapasake's menu features superb fish and seafood, fresh from the Indian Ocean, transformed into modern Japanese cuisine with a twist. Hidden on the northern tip of the island is the sensual, Arabesque Fanditha. This exotic, boho-chic beachside spot serves a Middle Eastern influenced menu of mezzehs, chargrills and salads – accompanied by the finest selection of chilled rosés and champagnes. Watch breath taking sunset views at Fanditha while you laze on divan-style bolsters, Arabic carpets and chill-out swing beds. An extensive villa dining menu is available 24-hours a day, and includes such treats as personal beach barbecues. A team of Villa Chefs is on call to create exquisite menus for dining in privacy.
