The Jumeirah Dhevanafushi resort, in the heart of the Gaafu Alifu atoll, represents the very essence of the Maldives : sea, sand and sun. Thirty eight sumptuous villas are divided up between the island and the lagoon. Located on the water, half a mile from the white sand beach, the 16 Ocean Pearls water villas are only accessible by boat. The contemporary and design style of these extremely spacious villas are decorated with dark wood and subtle colors, in traditional Maldivian fashion. In the bathroom, an immense marble pool serves as a bathtub. All the villas have a garden, a private swimming pool, direct access to the sea and a private butler. The hotel also possesses a peaceful, filtered spa and three restaurants, one of which is in the middle of the water. In this exceptional site, the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi represents luxury in its purest state.

The Maldives

The Maldives, a nation in the heart of the Indian Ocean, is located more than 600 kilometers east of Sri Lanka. The archipelago consists of 26 atolls, forming a string of almost 1200 islands spread over 800 kilometers from north the south.

The gentle climate, magnificent landscapes, long white sand beaches and unparalleled underwater depths have rapidly given rise to tourism. As the country’s main source of income, the Maldives, since the 1980s, has attracted more than 800,000 visitors annually to its 90 islands transformed into veritable island-hotels.

Over the years, the Maldives has affirmed itself as one of the privileged destinations for deep sea diving enthusiasts, sun worshipers and lovers of water sports. It would be a shame however, not to interest oneself in the culture of the archipelago, as the country is at the crossroads of African and Indian culture.

Heaven on earth

Located 400 kilometers from the Maldivian capital of Malé, the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is a haven of peace built on two islands in the south of the archipelago. The resort, in the heart of the Gaafu Alifu atoll, represents the very essence of the Maldives: sea, sand and sun. Some visitors may even be lucky enough, when they arrive, to be welcomed by a playful group of dolphins.

TheJumeirah Dhevanafushi consists of 38 villas, 22 on the island and 16 on the water, half a mile inside the lagoon. There is no pontoon linking them to the main island, and they are only accessible by boat thus guaranteeing total isolation. The pure, contemporary design style of these immense villas gives them a sense of true grandeur.

The décor of the rooms, with their dark wood and subtle colors, were inspired by the traditional Maldivian architectural style. Their generous volumes communicate a feeling of freedom that continues into the bathrooms. Here too, everything is huge and extravagant, like the totally marble bathtub, which resembles a luxurious pool. The shower is located outdoors in the midst of lush vegetation.

Between the garden, the private swimming pool and a direct access to the sea, whether one is in an “Ocean Sanctuary” villa suspended above the water, or one of the island villas, guests can spend their entire vacation here without ever leaving their cocoon. A private butler service assures them of discreet and attentive service.

Completely detached from the main island, the 16 « Ocean Pearls » villas have their own restaurant. Easily accessible thanks to a motorboat, it’s the ideal spot to contemplate the sun setting over the Indian Ocean.

To keep in shape after a long day in the hot sun, the Talise Spa proposes massages and personalized treatments in a peaceful and filtered setting, conducive to total relaxation.

On the main island, the sumptuous and design Azara restaurant is the ideal venue for dinner. Guests however, who prefer the privacy of their villa or a picnic along the sea, need only ask, and a dinner created just for them will be delivered wherever they like, and in the manner they wish. Paradise on earth exists; the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi has created it.
