Surrounded by one of the healthiest reef systems in the Maldives, the Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort, with its private, spacious and carefully designed rooms, has set a new standard for luxury in the Maldives. There are 91 villas and suites here, 46 of which are overwater bungalows. The smaller class of rooms are massive themselves, though most of that area is outdoors in the form of private decks and a private swimming pool.
This is set to be a 5-star deluxe property, with some of the highest per-room prices in the Maldives. Those who are looking for the best of the best should give this place a serious look. The location close to the main Maldives airport is another bonus that makes getting in and out much easier than at most of these private-island resorts.
Most reviews are highly positive, citing thoughtful and timely customer service, a nice selection of different plates from the onsite restaurants and great visibility at the reef right outside of each bungalow. It is also noted that reviewers touched on the low current surrounding the overwater rooms as well. This is great to hear if you’re a beginner or first time snorkeler looking for an easy time on the water. Rooms themselves were given a pretty impressive rating, with guests loving every aspect, from the complete privacy to the decor.
