Imagine escaping to paradise where you can leave everything behind to pamper yourself in one of the best luxury destinations in the Maldives. It’s a getaway that many of us only dream about — a dream that could be realised at Amari Havodda Maldives.
At the resort, guests are greeted by a warm welcome, as well as a structure inspired by an overturned fishing boat — a nod to the local Maldivian way of life and a symbol of the beginning of each guest’s holiday.
Beach and Overwater Villas
The luxury resort offers 120 villas in two categories: Beach Villas and Overwater Villas.
The Beach Pool Villas are the best spots to take in the island’s sunset with its pool set in an enclosed lush garden for more privacy; while the Overwater Pool Villas, featuring plunge pools, are designed for those who prefer to be even closer to the water.
Each of these villas opens onto a personal terrace that provides direct access to the water and oversized daybeds ideal for lounging and observing the marine life below. Furthermore, guests can enjoy a private indoor and outdoor tropical bathroom with an open area through which the reef below can be seen and heard.
Food and dining
Continuing on its philosophy of “connecting guests with nature”, the restaurants and bars at Amari Havodda Maldives provide multiple culinary options that highlight both international and Asian flavours.
Amari’s signature all-day dining restaurant, Amaya Food Gallery, serves Asian and international cuisines throughout the day. To fancy its diners, chefs expertly prepare their dishes while they watch, creating delights inspired by the much-loved street foods of Asia.
Meanwhile, on the northern shore of the island is Ember Grill which provides a variety of grilled dishes from seafood to prime cuts — all cooked over hot charcoal. Ember offers an intimate dining experience, ideal for a romantic dinner under the stars.
Alternatively, guests can enjoy cocktails and snacks at Thari Bar, located at the main pool deck. This is an ideal place to laze and sprawl around on the pool loungers whilst sipping cocktails under the sun.
For those seeking an adventure with the reefs, Amari Havodda Maldives has a fully-equipped Dive Centre, available for those eager to explore the colourful underwater world and the island’s own house reef. Along with the Dive Centre, the luxury resort offers a Watersports Centre, featuring a large variety of equipment for fun overwater activities.
For island-hopping, snorkelling, sailing or night fishing, the resort offers boat excursions. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy an all-weather multipurpose tennis court and a beach volleyball court to work up a sweat before taking a dip in the refreshing waters.
Travellers can indulge in exemplary services at Amari Havodda’s Breeze Spa, where a full day of relaxation and rejuvenation awaits all those searching for the ultimate soothing experience.
Located in a lush garden setting, the spa has six treatment pavilions and calming water features. Manicure and pedicure services are also available for a bit of extra pampering.
