10 Celebrity Hot Spot Hotels in The Maldives

Where to Spot Celebrities in The Maldives


The Maldives is famous for their picture-perfect beaches, crystal-clear waters and of course the most luxurious resorts in the world. Maldives is a regular hot spot for the rich and the famous. From Hollywood celebrities to world famous athletes to the Bollywood stars, all head to the Maldives, for a romantic or family vacation. Nothing says luxury travel quite like a trip to the Maldives and it’s little wonder that the A-list seem to flock to these islands on the daily. With stars' social media feeds filled with those perfect beach shots and beautiful backdrops, it's almost impossible not to get wanderlust.

If you really want to travel like the rich and famous, booking an over-water villa with pool is an absolute must. Forget fighting over sun loungers by the public pool and ducking the paparazzi in the resort lobby. These resorts actually have a rather strict (and fair) privacy policy, where they will not share any information on the celebrities that have stayed at their resorts.

So out of all the islands, where do the Rich and Famous Go in the Maldives? Good news is that we have a list below that consists of 10 best resorts where You are sure to spot one of your favorite A-lister!


1  Amilla Fushi

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island
Booking.com

Who stayed here:  The Beckhams, Gordon Ramsey, Kate Moss, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslett, Paris Hilton,  Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, Lena Meckel, Cara Delevingne & Ashley Benson, Rita Ora

The luxury resort is situated in the UNESCO-protected biosphere of Baa Atoll, one of 26 natural atolls in the Indian Ocean. Since opening in 2015, Amilla Fushi Resort has disrupted the status-quo and modernised the traditional concept of a luxury island holiday. With its slick, modern architecture, and all-encompassing attention to detail, the resort has become the holiday destination of choice for the super stars, who have called this island her favourite place. The Amilla Fushi villa resort has been the chosen holiday destination for the likes of Victoria and David Beckham, Gordon Ramsey and Kate Winslet. Super model Kate Moss is also a fan.

The Beckham clan rang in the New Year in the massive eight-bedroom Amilla Great Beach Villa Residence, while the Ramseys shacked up in the four-bedroom Amilla Villa Residence. Each villa offers an unbelievable beachfront location and a whole world of added perks – we love the dedicated Rolls Royce buggies!

2 One & Only Reethi Rah

One & Only Reethi Rah with celebs
Booking.com

Who stayed here:  David Beckham, Gordon Ramsay, Roman Abramovich; Tom Cruise; American model and actress Milla Jovovich; Russell Crowe, Idris Elba

Before stay there, Reethi Rah for the island resort seems a bit conservative. Smooth, majestic, but perhaps lacking some details of the bounty in Maldives rural style (call it what you like) that are in fashion today. Going ashore, you will realize that refusal to follow a fashion trend is the same point: you simply do not need it when you are the best. Reethi Rah adheres to his own One & Only style. Of all the islands that make up the Maldives, Reethi Rah is most in tune with the celebrity zeitgeist. Purposefully not 'trendy', in the development stage to the top level of luxury, specializing in high quality service to its guests, such an experience you would have hard to find somewhere else in the Maldives.

The staff wear designer sunglasses and its boutique stocks specially designed wedges by Christian Louboutin. A 75-minute speed-boat journey from the airport in the Maldives’ capital, Male. Many resorts in the Maldives are not much bigger than a football pitch but Reethi Rah is so large that it has space for its own AstroTurf one for its guests to enjoy a kickabout, plus a series of championship-standard tennis courts. At this resort you get space for your money, glowing lanterns at every turn and plenty of whimsical touches. One of the eight dining options on the resort is the organic restaurant Botanica set in its own vegetable garden, while ClubOne has top-level DJs fly in for special events. Read Full Review...

Barefoot are recommended (shoes are removed as soon as you leave the airport on the boat), and each guest is surrounded by the care of a personal butler with the title "Mr. Friday". The spacious, charmingly simple water villas are built of some types of wood and are equipped with open (and on the roof!) decks with seaviews that can evoke tears of joy. On land, a beautiful island with 683 palms offers a range of activities and an excellent dining options. This rare diamond in the Maldives is more authentic than other famous brand resorts at the same price - given the regular appearance in the Gili Lankanfushi of world celebrities.

Soneva Fushi is one of the most luxurious villa resorts in the Maldives – and that’s saying something. Awarded with white sandy beaches of a private island in Maldives, the Soneva Fushi's eco-chic villas are the material of the romantic fantasies of Robinson Crusoe. Drop your shoes and worries: with an luxury spa, hypnotic house reef and high quality butler services, you will not need anything on this laid-back playground of a beautiful uninhabited island. If Robinson Crusoe could develop hotels - he would have built Soneva Fushi! A total of 65 apartments and villas were implanted in the heart of lush vegetation to ensure maximum privacy for each ones, and most importantly, that it was not visible from the sea. 8 categories of rooms, each trying to outdo the elegance of a neighbor, start with a simple Rehendi from 182 m2 to a huge Jungle Reserve villa of 720 m2, passing by Crusoe villas, apartments or even a villa Soneva Fushi.

The island itself is explored exclusively by bicycle, golf cart and on foot, thanks to the resort's novel 'No News, No Shoes' policy. By this, they encourage guests to leave their shoes in the suitcase, banning papers and news channels, and embracing 'Robinson Crusoe simplicity'; perfect for celebrities who largely dictate the headlines. In-villa pools overlook the sea, footsteps from a stretch of secluded beach, which gives guests the opportunity to cool off away from prying eyes.That's perhaps why Soneva has become the A-listers' little secret to a completely undisturbed castaway experience.

Life on the island is also not too far from that of the average A-list home, because personal butlers - made available on arrival - are at guests' beck and call 24-7 for in-house dining requests and table reservations, as well as fixing, cleaning and questions. Read Full Review...
