Ozen Reserve Bolifushi

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

It’s hard to return to everyday life after a stay at OZEN Reserve Bolifushi: 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?

Where is it

In the South Malé Atoll, on the island of Bolifushi, surrounded by one of its healthiest house reefs, just 20-800 metres from five shipwrecks for diving. You’ll be welcomed on arrival in Malé and taken to the resort’s airport lounge where fresh coffee and homemade cookies await. Board a luxurious catamaran for a 20-minute scenic ride past tropical islands to your resort.
