Maldives' Beach Villas

best beach villas in the maldives

With the best beaches in the world, the Maldives are just full of beach villas! Beach villas are perfect if you love relaxing on the white sands and want to be just a few steps from the own beach with sun loungers and crystal clear waters. The proximity to your room, quality, colour and combination with lagoon and reef, it is still true that your beach experience in the Maldives is very likely to be wonderful, second to nowhere else in the world. Comfortably equipped with modern amenities, most of these Villas are ideal for a secluded break. You can choose between couples and families, sunrise and sunset, and often the rooms come with a pool and butler service. Sunrise beach villas are ideal for early birds Wake up with the rising sun in your generously sized Villa. Sunset Beach Villas give you to enjoy a dramatic sunset from your sun lounger in your garden or dining under the stars on your private deck. Also, when choosing a villa keep in mind that the villas on the island's souther side catch more sun and some have more fine sand than others. For most rooms most of the year there is a glorious beach right outside the door. And when there isn’t, the islands are generally so small that you only have to stroll a few seconds away to get to an area of ideal beach. And ultimately, the management is always willing to move you when a better room becomes available. Indoors, you’ll be delighted with the large outdoor bathroom featuring a terrazzo bathtub semi indoor shower and outdoor rain shower, as well a posh tropical vegetation for privacy. The some of the best beach villas even offer a direct sea view from your bedroom.

Pros: The beach villas give you direct access to the beach. Some beach villas have private garden meaning extra privacy. Some beach villas have outdoor bathrooms in walled gardens and private pools making it more romantic. Easy access to all island facilities yet still quite secluded. You can move your sun bed around depending on the movement of the sun.

Cons: Having a private garden can cause obstructed views. other guests can walk past your beach making it less private. However if you have your own garden then it will help prevent this. You might be able to hear unwanted noises from people passing by your villa or from the resort’s bars and restaurants.

Water Villas

Experience World-class Service at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa

The chain of 26 natural atolls that make up the Maldives is home for 2/3 water villas in the world and staying in an overwater villas is one of those bucket-list items you must check off. The variety of stays here (more than 100 properties) is mind-boggling: whether you’re a dedicated diver or environmentalist, honeymooner or family group looking to splurge, there’s a over water bungalow here for you. Interested in personal butlers and meals delivered straight to your room? Prefer something more social? Villas at Soneva Jani have their own slides and outdoor swings while the property hosts live music and outdoor movie nights. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island made the biggest news splash when it debuted the world’s first underwater villa in 2019 —though any guest can experience the novelty at its ethereal underwater restaurant Undersea, where guests dine on fine European cuisine while schools of tropical fish swirl all around.

You’ve probably seen water villas on Instagram. These are the unmistakable thatched bungalows that appear to float on the clear waters. Aside from being a feature for very “share-worthy” photos, overwater villas also make for amazing holiday accommodations. They provide a measure of privacy over traditional beach villas while offering easy access to the water and ocean's underwater treasures.

Not every island is blessed with the sand and surf worthy of postcard —but those that are are as spellbindingly beautiful as the hotels that line their shores.

Make your stay in Maldives as memorable as it can be with a stay in an overwater villa. Fall asleep to the lullaby of lagoon waters lapping beneath your villa, watch the sunset from your private deck, and enjoy the marine life below through the glass floor. Most Maldives luxury resorts have water villas where you can spend your days leapfrogging from spa to swim up cocktail bar to beach and back again. Water Villa is only a few steps down a staircase into the cristal clear water, where you’ll often be surrounded by psychedelic-coloured fish, so definitely worth considering if you love swimming and snorkelling.

Pros: Tend to be quite private. You can enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea. Some people feel water villas are more romantic. Some water villas have glass-panelled floors, which means you can watch the sea life beneath you. There is direct access to the sea and house reef snorkeling. You can relax on your own personal lounge deck with a pool and sun beds. Some water villas have a small artificial sand beach on the sun deck.

Cons: Water villas can be a long way from the resort’s main facilities such as the restaurants and bars. They can be poorly lit at night. Your personal lounge deck might not be facing the sun and therefore might be in the shade half the time. At low tides the water beneath you can be too shallow to get into the ocean or see the sealife beneath you. The steps leading into the ocean can be made out of steel making them slippery to climb in and out of the water. In most cases, for safety reasons, accommodation with small children is prohibited in water villas.

 

How to Choose a Water Villa

Experience World-class Service at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa

The key things about a water villa are the sun deck and the lagoon. Assuming the interior is good for the money you have paid, it is the sun deck that delights or disappoints in a water villa. This is where you hope to spend a lot of time. So, critically, how long does it have the sun on it and how secluded are you from your neighbours?

South-facing gets you the sun for most of the day, west-facing gets you the sunset. East-facing is fine for early-ish risers and those who won’t be sunbathing in the heat of the day, north-facing verandas don’t get the sun, but have the best view because of the sun behind them. Most water bungalows are in staggered lines, so that you don’t see more than one neighbour either side of you, and sometimes it is well done enough not to see anyone. Other water bungalows are joined together or in straight lines with very little dividing them. These can be okay but they are not ideal. The width of the sun deck is important and then it is a matter of what those steps down take you into. Actually, some water bungalows don’t have steps down but the only good reason for this that is because you would be stepping straight down onto a coral garden.

Like the ideal island for snorkelling, the ideal lagoon for a water bungalow is not that common. But, once again, whatever you do end up with almost always gives you great pleasure. Ideally you walk down the wooden steps from your veranda into a sunlit lagoon that is a good depth for swimming and standing around in, say waist to chest deep. The bottom is softest sand but coral blocks are here and there delighting with their colour and activity. A short swim then takes you to the reef drop-off, either over the corals at high tide or down a cut through. What can happen is the lagoon never gets above knee height, or the floor is covered with broken pieces of staghorn coral, or it is featureless and lifeless. Sometimes the drop-off is miles away or the current is worryingly strong when the tides turn. Any one resort is unlikely to have all these disadvantages, but one or two of these things could affect your holiday experience.

As for season: If the prevailing wind is coming from south-west (Hulhangu as it is called in local Dhivehi language, runs from May to October) and your resort is on the western side of the atoll, you will experience the worst of it or best of it depending on what you want. Villas set over the water can actually shudder when the wind and waves are strong though the storms are not common. So it may pay to try to get a room on the eastern side, but then you give up the sunset view. The same rule applies to beach villas that're facing the ocean (not inside the lagoon).
