Let’s start with the simplest feature we offer you. Space. Then let’s complement, not crowd, your space with finery and art to stimulate all the senses. This was our mission when we created the villas on Ithaafushi. And to remind you that you deserve a life less ordinary, a 24 hour personal concierge is standing by, while housekeeping  services maintain the same schedule.

A dream within a dream. Such is the state of bliss you can expect when visiting our wellness facilities on the island. A fitness studio so exclusive it will seem as if it is yours alone. The Ocean Pavilion boasts a rich variety of wellness activities. The Spa Wellness Concierge will ensure that your wish for a daily therapeutic massage is met in a private room overlooking the water while Himalayan salt works its magic on your body. Plus, our gym features the latest innovations around high and low impact exercise, under the watchful eye of your own trainer.

As our guest on the island, your choices of gastronomy are limited only by the imagination of your appetite. Whatever you desire is our privilege to prepare. It is our pleasure to also offer exclusive, special occasion culinary programmes.
