Jumeirah Vittaveli

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

It’s hard to return to everyday life after a stay at Jumeirah Vittaveli: the very definition of luxury. Your beach villa is entirely secluded, but still gives direct access to the beach or lagoon, putting you just a swim from one of South Malé Atoll’s healthiest house reefs and five shipwrecks. At your villa, every luxury awaits: an oversized L-shaped pool (you can swim from your bathroom, around your villa, to your terrace), semi-open rain showers, interactive TVs, even adjustable mood lighting. In fact, it will be impossible to holiday anywhere else after you’ve lazed on the daybeds enjoying cocktails at B4R, dined with your feet in the sand at Mu Beach Bar, woken early for yoga in the spa garden and sunk into the massage table in an overwater treatment room. And, with one of the Maldives’ largest kids' clubs and Ice Ice Maybe, the Maldives' first ice rink built from artificial 'Glice', who can disagree?

Our stay here was wonderful! The ocean villas have spectacular views. Ocean is perfect. Doesn't have any lagoon or any smells that come from such resorts. Grounds are gorgeous. Service is beyond great! This staff knows how to treat people and how to make you happy at every turn. Very humble personnel. We loved everything about the resort. Yes it's very very pricey but it's very exclusive. If anything is not perfect, it's the pricing of food and drinks. I believe the price for the resort is reasonable because of its quality, but the price of the food and drinks while there, is a little inflated. It can definitely be cheaper. Other than that, we have no regrets by coming here; and definitely would return and recommend to anyone who can afford it. It's worth every penny for the reservation. This is Definitely the best place we've ever stayed at; and we've been all over the Caribbean, Central America and USA. I highly recommend Jumeirah Vittavelli! Give 5 stars overall! Read less

They offer different themes of cuisine every night, so you don’t feel bored of food at all. The resort is luxury and super clean and comfortable, it worth any penny ! Salman was in charge of our room . He is very friendly and warm person. I’m really happy I choose Jumeirah as my honey moon resort ! 完美的蜜月旅行聖地! 我與老公第一次來馬爾地夫就選擇Jumeirah 。 我們選擇的是四天是豪華的水上屋,真的超級舒適又超棒的美景,私人無邊際泳池的視野超棒的, 真心推薦!而晚上這邊的燈光設計真的讓夜晚都亮了起來,超級有氣氛的。buffet食物每晚的主題都不一樣, 第一晚是日本料理,有新鮮生蠔、壽司、燒烤,生蠔真的太美味了一次吃了11個。 甜點更是亮點,都很好吃~每晚都不一樣的甜點真的非常用心的飯店。 很開心選擇了Jumeirah 作為我們的蜜月勝地。 Read less

We stayed in a water villa with slide for 5 days and had a fantastic time. Our personal butlers Michelle/Lea were very helpful. Buffet breakfast & dinner were delicious with lots of variety and the Indian dinner at Swarna restaurant was an eye-opening experience!
