Check out one of our top Maldives destinations; the Amari Havodda! A stunning island escape that everyone can enjoy, whether you're a couple, family or group.
Amari Havodda is an exclusive island escape in the heart of the Maldives’ stunning Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll region. Getting here couldn't be simpler - the resort is a 10-minute speedboat charter from Kaadedhdhoo Domestic Airport, which is a 55 minute flight from Malé. Once arrived, you'll be able to settle into your beach or over water villa and enjoy everything that this tropical island playground has to offer.
With a huge range of dining and activities to choose from, the resort offers something for everyone. Or, you may choose simply to enjoy the luxuries of your villa and order food to come to you, whilst you recline in the comfort of your own private sun lounger admiring the island views.
Thinking of celebrating your big day in the Maldives? Amari Havodda can make your dreams of getting married under a flower archway in tropical paradise a reality, offering Maldives wedding packages that can be tailored to suit your vision.
There are several room choices at the Amari Havodda, with each surpassing expectations and offering the upmost luxury.
First up and probably most commonly desired are the classic overwater villas - opt for one of these for the ultimate indulgent experience. Each villa comes with a king sized bed looking out across the ocean, so you can get up, go through the glass doors and step out onto your private deck and sun lounging area. From here you have direct access to the ocean so you can laze and swim the day away without ever venturing further than 10ft from your room. When it’s time for dinner, freshen up in the glorious open air bathroom.
If privacy is more your thing, then we recommend the Beach Garden Pool Villa. These fantastic rooms come with every bonus you could think of; they’re literally on the beach, you wake up to an ocean view, the villas are surrounded by lush green palms and they have their own private plunge pool at the back of the property. Plus, the stand alone outdoor (but covered) bathtub is something out of every bath lover’s dreams.
There are multiple options for dining at the Amari Havodda Maldives, so fear not - though you may be stranded on an island, you’ll still eat like a king.
The main restaurant, Amaya Food Gallery, offers an all-day dining experience to tantalise your taste buds from breakfast to dinner with an array of international and locally designed Asian influenced dishes. Over on the Northern shore of the island is Ember Robatayaki. Taking inspiration from traditional Japanese methods of cooking, this restaurant serves up seafood, vegetables and prime cuts straight off the giant barbecue in the centre of the room.
If you wanted a holiday to soothe and relax your soul, a stay at Amari Havodda is ideal. Not least because of the beautiful Breeze Spa - soak in the Jacuzzi while surrounded by palm leaves in a tropical garden, then head into a light, airy and tranquil treatment room for a massage that will leave you feeling totally at one with the world.
Perhaps you want slightly more activity out of your holiday? Well rest assured, Amari Havodda has that covered too. Pop into the Water Sports and Dive Centre to be hooked up with a huge range of water based activities; from jet ski excursions to water skiing, stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing and banana boat rides - you’ll be spoilt for choice.
For scuba lovers there’s the nearby Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, the second largest atoll in the world, which is home to an awe inspiring array of colourful fish and coral. So kit up and head out onto the reef for a spectacular underwater experience. You might even see a shark!
