Vakkaru Hotel & Resort, Maldives

Maldivian charm meets Robinson Crusoe style at this laid-back island retreat which is blissfully poised in the UNESCO-protected Baa Atoll, just a 30 minute scenic seaplane flight from Male. A former coconut plantation (Vakkaru means ‘coconut timber’ in Maldivian), this lush green island jewel is home to over 2,000 coconut trees which are harvested for use in the indulgent cuisine served in Vakkaru’s five restaurants. The villas are irresistibly seductive and the endless horizon views are quite simply mesmerising!

Fringed by powder soft white sand and lapped by Tiffany blue turquoise waters, Vakkaru’s barefoot luxury lifestyle captivates even the most seasoned of travellers. With no other island in sight and a thriving house reef, there’s little wonder why Vakkaru’s Indian Ocean charisma woos guests back time and again!

Be pampered with holistic treatments at the spa or find your flow with a pre-breakfast yoga session – whatever you decide, Vakkaru’s timeless allure will revive your mind, body and soul! There’s an enchanting wildness and sophisticated vibrancy about Vakkaru which undoubtedly gives it its distinctive Maldivian personality.


Vakkaru, Maldives


Understated, chic and oozing contemporary style, Vakkaru’s stunning villas boast an earthy yet elegant Maldivian design, all with an incredible sense of space. Choose between a classic beach setting, nestled between coconut palms on the gorgeous white sands or an overwater location, set on stilts over the dazzling lagoon, where the warm, muted tones contrast with the gleaming turquoise colours that beam through the floor-to-ceiling glass. Some Beach and Overwater Villas also have private infinity pools. All guests are provided with bikes for cycling through the island. The pièce de résistance are Vakkaru’s utterly stunning Beach and Overwater Residences – vast, awe-inspiring private sanctuaries which take full advantage of their privileged locale – either a heavenly beach position or aquatic overwater setting. There are some Family Villas too plus the Ultimate Maldivian Private Hideaway – the exclusive two-storey, four bedroomed Vakkaru Overwater Residence – one of the largest overwater residences in the Maldives, offering guaranteed seclusion, a chef on stand-by, a 55m² private infinity pool and far-reaching ocean views.


Dining is a sublime experience on Vakkaru. There are six restaurants, two bars and an incredible wine cellar – not to mention the inspiring Organic Garden where bespoke private dining experiences can be arranged with a personal chef to celebrate a special occasion. The food is a highlight, with tastes and flavours from around the world. Dine poolside, on the beach under the stars or over the water. Try grilled seafood at Vakku or enjoy the open kitchen vibe at Onu where chefs take you on a delectable culinary journey through South-East Asia. The Lagoon Bar buzzes every night, complete with its new Teppanyaki Table serving mouth-watering sushi. For wine lovers, the wine cellar is hosted by the indomitable sommelier, Ivan from Montenegro, possibly the most charming, likeable character on the island. His passion for wine is insatiable and his ice-filled ‘rosé wheelbarrow’ sheer genius – he does the rounds at lunchtime, proudly telling guests that Vakkaru has the largest rosé selection in the Maldives!


Vakkaru’s Merano Spa is a wellness triumph! The outdoor relaxation area sits on stilts over the cerulean sea with glass panels for watching parrotfish swim beneath you. The overwater gym comes with a wooden deck for sunrise yoga and the tennis, badminton and volleyball courts lie hidden within the palm-forested foliage. The water sports centre ‘Splash’ offers a wealth of water sports including scuba diving (with accredited PADI instructors) and memorable sunset cruises whilst for families, the Parrot Fish Club has an adventure playground for younger kids and teens can head to the Coconut Club where there is table tennis and a number of pool tables. Enjoy a jungle style cinema experience under the stars for a movie night like no other or Perhaps above all else though, Vakkaru’s friendly, attentive and personalised service will leave you forever smiling and wanting to return!
