• Top 5 luxury resorts in Maldives

In this article I want to talk to you about luxury resorts in the Maldives, explaining how much this classification affects the very high quality of the services offered: it is not just a question of evaluating beautiful rooms overlooking a pristine lagoon, but of grasping the right balance between tropical paradise and managed luxury. down to the smallest detail. Every year I visit these splendid islands, forming new collaborations and increasing what represents the most precious know-how of Souri Trip: the one built thanks to direct visits.

These resorts represent real dream places enriched with villas equipped with every comfort and services able to pamper even the most skeptical traveler: the Maldives represent a sort of temporal space able to make us forget where we come from. This is where everything stops and it is on these islands that I have visited the best luxury resorts in the world.

Pullman Resort – the essence of luxury

This new luxury resort in the Maldives is located in the far south, precisely in the atoll of Gaafu Alifu on the island of Maamutaa: it is a 5-star all-inclusive immersed in a welcoming forest and a natural lake. The all inclusive of this resort is a very rich formula that allows you to take advantage of any type of service: in addition to the possibility of having meals in the various restaurants, you can enjoy a drink in the various bars during the day and opt for one of the excursions which are included in the package, as long as your stay is longer than 5 nights. You can opt for a snorkeling excursion, a sunset fishing, a sunset cruise and combine it with a 60-minute spa treatment or a 30-minute jet ski.

Both the common places and the villas are furnished with great care and perfectly integrated with the naturalistic context that surrounds them: each bungalow has its privacy,

its vegetation and an infinite lagoon in which to “get lost”.

What defines the Pullman Resort as one of the best luxury resorts is the presence of the Villa Aqua and the Royal Suite: the first is a room below sea level that allows you to
 feel an integral part of one of the most famous oceans in the world and the the other is an oceanfront presidential villa with private pool and two floors. 
There are many family solutions with villas that provide a large family to be all together in a single structure.

The Pullman resort has chosen Souri Trip as one of its direct collaborators in the field of tourism promotion: this allows us to provide our customers with
completely confidential discounts and promotions. The latest news of the resort is the Long stay "Home Away from Home 'valid for stays until 
23 December 2021:

- payment for 16 nights stay up to 30 nights;
- payment for 22 nights stay up to 40 nights
- payment for 27 nights stay up to 50 nights
- payment for 32 nights stay up to 60 nights

More and more oriented towards smart working, this solution is undoubtedly the best for those who want to spend their working winter at 30 °.

It is a 360 ° experience characterized by paradisiacal beaches, dreamlike lagoons, unforgettable villas, sublime cuisine and excellent services.

This luxury resort in the Maldives has literally kidnapped my heart: the island is beautiful surrounded by white beaches with fine sand, the lush vegetation creates

natural shaded areas where you can relax during the hottest hours thanks to the hammocks and swings that are located on the island. The coral reef

completely surrounds this paradise and  has several access channels. Many flowers populate the gardens and many colors will color your newspaper at Ayada.

This resort impressed me in terms of the organization and natural beauty of the island: there is no visible barrier on the horizon, the beaches are wide and surround the
 entire perimeter, the villas are simply beautiful and have a private pool ( except the garden villas).

Ayada is located in the Gaafu Dhaalu atoll on the island of Maguhdhuvaa, in the extreme south of the Maldivian archipelago. Reaching this resort from Male requires a domestic

flight lasting about an hour and a boat transfer for another hour. Although it may seem complicated to reach this area of ​​the Indian Ocean, I guarantee you that it is also very suitable

for families with children, having all the comforts and essential assistance for baby travelers.

I call Ayada the best resort I have ever visited to date as the balance between structure, nature, services, lagoon and reef is incredibly perfect. The Sandbank dinner experience, or candlelit dinner
in the middle of the ocean is something truly magical. This experience is made possible only thanks to the professionalism and organization of the staff: chefs, waiters, butlers and two boats are at
your disposal to make this sunset in the front row unique.

Dining on a strip of sand at sunset surrounded by crystal clear waters is one of those experiences that you will hardly find elsewhere: it’s just you, the silence, the sound of the sea in the

background and one of the most beautiful sunsets you can ever see. As a Souri Trip client you have the opportunity to be personally followed on the island by Aisaff: our assistant

and my “teacher” during the direct visit that took place in December.

Niyama – an island all to yourself

Niyama Private Island is in 4th place in the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards “Best Luxury Resort in the World” category and 2nd place for the Best Luxury Resort in

the Indian Ocean. Being among the collaborating affiliates of a resort of this caliber allows Souri Trip to become part of the Luxury trip in Maldives category.

Being made up of two islands, this private island is suitable for both couples and families with children: the island “Chill” is suitable for romantics, the “Play” is a paradise

for families. This natural division allows the resort two completely different types of customers.

Located in the Dhaalu atoll, this luxury resort can also be reached by private jet: it is an all-round luxury travel where your stay takes place on a private island, between nature,

relaxation and total privacy.

"Living" on a private island in the Maldives is an exclusive experience aimed at those who are not satisfied with sharing their moments of relaxation with 
many guests: living a Robinson experience Crusoe with all the comforts of the finest luxury. On this island every single traveler feels special, unique and
 in total harmony with the wonder that  surrounds him: the days are marked only by the beauty of the sea. 
The island boasts a lush vegetation of over 4000 palm trees and its terrain is home to many breeding turtles.

One of the pearls of this luxury resort in Maldives is the Drift Spa: entering this Spa means taking a virtual trip to Indonesia given the similarity of the structure to a Balinese

forest. A real sanctuary in the sea facing the lagoon or a private garden where you can relax in the Turkish bath and sauna. In addition to the classic body treatments, the Drift spa

has numerous packages for families with children and for those who enjoy surfing during the day (there are pre and post surf treatments). The location is truly surreal and

you cannot even imagine how unique and particular this environmental context they have chosen is.

Each guest at the Niyama has a personal “Thakuru” (butler) who organizes the client’s daily activities and has the sole mission of making your stay even more special.

For those who are not satisfied with the private island, at Niyama it is possible to book The Crescent, the quintet of luxury villas in Maldives located on the private dock. Five

private pools, two butlers, a private chef and a housekeeper to make your luxury stay even more exclusive.

Kanuhura resort: pure beauty

Kanuhura resort is located in Lhaviyani atoll and is about 150 km from Male airport. Its lagoon is infinite and as far as the eye can see: I still remember the photos I received

during the vacation of one of my faithful customers. Turning on the phone every morning meant flying into a heavenly setting with dazzling colors and endless beaches.

“Best resort you couldn’t find. It’s just perfect. The hotel staff strive tirelessly to make your stay a memorable vacation in paradise.” That was the message they sent me at

the end of the holiday.

There are numerous activities that can be carried out on this island: water lovers have no limits to enjoy this tropical paradise. You can board a private boat and head to

the infinite horizon, spend the day plowing the seas on a catamaran, enjoy the crystal clear waters with jet ski, wakeboard, windsurf or indulge in an adrenaline rush

with the Jetlev-Flyer.

For diving enthusiasts there is a specialized Padi center capable of taking beginners to visit the most beautiful diving sites of the whole atoll.

An activity that I recommend is related to sunset fishing because regardless of the passion you have for this sport, the feeling of sailing under the stars in a calm and silent sea

is nothing short of wonderful.

Huvafen Fushi: the dream

The heavenly luxury resort Huvafen Fushi is located in the atoll of Male and can be reached by fast boat due to its proximity to the airport. The natural context in which

this resort is located is something truly wonderful: the vegetation is lush and since there are few villas on the island (only 18 beach bungalows and 26 overwater bungalows),

it often happens that you feel like the only guests in this tropical garden.

This tiny island is a real jewel immersed in a splendid coral reef: luxury at Huvafen Fushi is given not only by the natural context but also by the quality of the services that are

offered. If the infinity pool is one of the most photographed areas of the island, the underwater spa is undoubtedly the most famous spa in the entire Indian Ocean. Treatments

below sea level and private dining in the Latitude 4 ° restaurant, this is what is called exclusive luxury.

There are six restaurants on the island:

  • Vinum: it is the first underground cellar in the Maldives. Daily wine and cheese tastings are enjoyed in an elegant and sophisticated setting.
  • Celsius: restaurant overlooking the lagoon, teases the palate with a selection of flavors for breakfast and dinner.
  • Forno: offers a wide range of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine in a casual beach setting under the shade of palm trees. Artisanal pizzas, hand made pastas will be prepared for lunch.
  • Salt: Huvafen Japanese cuisine with an Izakaya-style Latin influence, eaten in a restaurant suspended over water
  • Raw: Organic cuisine and raw food in this beautiful bistro overlooking the Indian Ocean.
  • Latitude 4 °: welcome to the only private underwater restaurant in the world. This is where you can indulge in a tailor-made dining experience like nowhere else in the world. A romantic table placed eight meters deep just for you. This is the real under water dinner!

Of course, in any luxury resort in the Maldives you choose to stay, you have the opportunity to renew your vows. There are dozens of packages offered by 
each resort, all aimed at making your future promise to your partner unique and romantic. Suggestive ceremonies among flowers, music and crystal 
clear waters that you can make even more special with the inclusion of the other services offered by the hotel.

Getting married on a paradise island is not just a dream for many, but it is a reality that in recent years has seen many tourists choose this option. By now this type of ceremonies

have evolved in terms of organization, so much so that in some resorts such as Ayada, it is possible to get married in a real wedding chapel: located in the heart of the island,

surrounded by a lush lawn, this white room offers a dream location for an unforgettable wedding in the Maldives.

You just have to reveal to us how you imagine these promises and we will “build” with the resort the best memory you can dream of.
