The Best Hotel in The Maldives

This post was originally published on this site

Whilst you might associate the Maldives purely with honeymooners and romantic getaways, with 26 islands to choose from there is a hotel for everyone; the just marrieds, sports enthusiasts, partiers, spa-goers or families alike.

Since we couldn’t pick just one, check out five fantastic hotels in the Maldives to suit a range of travellers.

For romantic retreats…

OBLU Select by Atmosphere at Sangeli Island

Lets face it, you are spoilt for choice for romantic getaways in the Maldives! We love the added extras available for honeymooners at OBLU Select. Enjoy couples only villas with private pools, complimentary bottle of champagne, canapés and fruit platter on arrival, couples’ treatments at the ELENA Spa, complementary adventure activities and entertainments and a special evening turndown service as part of the impressive Serenity Plan.

For a sumptuous spa break…

Baros Maldives

Voted the top luxury spa resort in the Maldives by travellers on Tripadvisor, and the World Travel Awards Winner 2017 of “Indian Ocean’s Most Romantic Resort”,  it isn’t hard to see why this boutique resort scores so highly with visitors. Soak up the tranquility from one of the island’s beachfront or overwater lagoon villas before checking out some seriously relaxing, tailor-made spa treatments. Choose experience dining on a sandbank, piano deck or private island dining or enjoy spectacular ocean views from the Lighthouse restaurant located at the edge of the jetty. When you are feeling more adventurous check out the plethora of watersports, fitness centre or complimentary yoga classes on offer.

Best for nightlife

Dhaalu Atoll

Spanning two stunning tropical islands, the five star Niyama Private Islands resort boasts the most restaurants and bars of any resort in the Maldives. Be sure to check out the  famous underwater club Subsix and the impressive drinks menu of Fahrenheit. For something more substantial, visit the unique tree-house setting of east asian restaurant Nest or the relaxed campsite vibe of Tribal, which offers impressive cuisine from Africa, Central and South America. You are also able to enjoy a relaxing spa treatment at any time of the day or night at the 24 hour Lime Spa. An award-winning kids club and babysitting service means you can happily bring the whole family along too.

For all out luxury…

One&Only Reethi Rah

Hotels in the Maldives are known for their luxurious touches, exemplary customer service and added extras. We love the award-winning One&Only Reethi Rah (Reethi Rah fittingly meaning ‘beautiful island’) for it’s stunning beachfront and overwater villas, fantastic facilities (including 12 beaches, adults and children only swimming pools, watersports, tennis and rock-climbing to name but a few) and the One&Only Spa by ESPA which includes a vitality pool, ice fountain, steam and sauna, pedi/manicure studio and a hair salon alongside stunning ocean view treatment rooms. In keeping with the decadent theme, the airport transfer can be completed via speedboat or  luxury yacht. The island even operates its own time zone an hour ahead of the Maldives capital Malé so that sunset cocktail hour falls at a more appropriate time!

For families…

Constance Moofushi

An all rounder with fantastic dive sites, a sumptuous spa and extensive ‘Cristal’ all inclusive option, we also love this hotel because it caters to that traditionally tricky teen market. The BlueTribe dive centre offers a fantastic range of diving course and talks aimed at children and they have done away with the kids club format to provide complimentary yoga and a specific games area with ping-pong, pool, giant chess, water polo and beach volleyball available for your not-so-little darlings. Even the complimentary mini bar includes crisps, nuts and chocolate bars for constant grazers!
