The Residence Maldives at Falhumaafushi now has a sister resort on a neighboring island in the southern Gaafu Alifu Atoll and it’s home to 173 spacious beach and water villas.
1. It’s a family-friendly resort
The Maldives isn’t just for honeymooners seeking a romantic getaway, it’s just as alluring for families looking to soak up the sun. With 173 beach and water villas, each boasting its own private pool, The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah blends the beauty of traditional Maldivian architecture with contemporary flair. Designed especially for families, the resort’s 12 new two-bedroom beach and water pool villas are perfect for those traveling with younger children.
Parents can relax with ease while leaving their little ones in the good hands of the resort’s dedicated Turtle Kids Club. Under the watchful eyes of the well-trained Kids Club team, kids from 3 to 12 can explore a vast playground across the island as they discover indigenous flora and fauna. Other activities include yoga for kids, snorkeling, kayaking, Dhivehi language practice, arts and craft, beach games, cooking, scavenger hunts and more. Babysitting services are also available.
2. Guests can enjoy facilities across two islands
The best part about staying at The Residence Maldives? Guests can access facilities on both islands, Falhumaafushi and Dhigurah, with the two resorts connected by a one-kilometer bridge.
Guests can head to The Dining Room for all-day dining, tuck into exquisite Chinese cuisine at the resort’s signature Cantonese restaurant Li Bai, as well as enjoy sunsets and cocktails at the ocean-facing Long Island. Mediterranean tapas can be had at Café del Sol, set within The Beach Club. For a more intimate experience, book private dining experiences including a castaway dinner on a private island served under starlit skies or a beach barbecue for family and friends.
3. Wellness is at the heart of it all
After a full day of activities, wind down at The Spa by Clarins, where 10 thatched roof spa pavilions are privately situated in lush tropical gardens overlooking the ocean. The full-service spa offers wellness treatments that aim to heal the mind, body, and soul, alongside a hair and beauty salon, as well as a yoga garden deck.
Alternatively, take a swim in the 42-meter infinity pool or plan a trip out to sea at the dive and watersports center. Guests can also hang out at the relaxation reading lounge, work up a sweat at the fully-equipped gym, or explore the island on bicycle.
4. They offer complimentary perks
Each room comes with two bicycles for guests to use, as well as a complimentary mini-bar, which gets refilled once a day. Other treats include guided snorkeling in the house reef—available three times a week and subject to weather conditions. Guests can also book a complimentary diving introduction session in the lagoon, where they can marvel at more than 250 species of coral and 1,200 species of marine life including manta rays, dolphins, and green turtles.
5. They’ve got an opening offer
Book a stay from now until March 31, 2020 to enjoy 40 percent off best available rates, with perks such as complimentary domestic flight and speedboat return transfers (minimum stay of 4 nights or more); as well as a complimentary upgrade to standard all-inclusive meal plan.
