Among the most spacious in the North Malé Atoll, every villa has a private rooftop terrace and infinity pool where you can enjoy the most famous floating breakfast in the Maldives.

A Leisure Island Retreat: Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island

The exquisite location of Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island in one of the most scenic settings in this stunning archipelago of Maldives gives isolation for a leisure island retreat and tranquility to those who want to reconnect from themselves while disconnecting from stress. Surrounded by nothing but the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Olhahali Island can be found at the very top of the North Malé Atoll. It is an hour by speedboat or a 15-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport.

The picturesque architecture and relaxing interiors of the resort are oozing with a luxurious contemporary vibe with the natural surroundings, evoking modern Mediterranean elegance that sets it distinct from the rest. This piece of elegance is the work of Miaja, the sophisticated Singaporean design studio. 

Every part of the resort's architecture and design has been researched to give breathtaking panoramas across the Indian Ocean and create a fantastic barefoot experience from the time you arrive on this island paradise.

Treat Yourself to the Unique Floating Breakfast in a Private Pool

Stay Different is the motto of Jumeirah Hotel Group, and their resort exemplifies this brilliantly! Starting with the one-of-a-kind meal option.

If you wake up in your villa wanting to swim in the pool and are in the mood for something unusual, treat yourself to the fantastic floating breakfast. In case you need to become more familiar with the term, it is your typical fancy hotel room service breakfast (think toast, fruit, coffee, and the like) served in a pool or hot tub rather than in bed. It is usually served on huge platters or colorful baskets, then adorned with vibrant tropical flowers to make them even more beautiful. 

The floating breakfast offered in the resort is typical “mas huni.” It is a Maldivian term for fish and coconut. This dish is shredded smoked tuna blended with grated coconut, onion, and lemon, served with chapati. You can also choose from fish soup, coconut fish curry, and root vegetables such as cassava, fried yam, and sweet potatoes. For dessert, guava, hot pink dragonfruit, or any available fruits. Also, since we are talking uniqueness, try to look out too for a spicy white berry known as noni or ahivah. A unique break, indeed!

Take a Break: Advantages and Benefits of having Floating Breakfast

Floating breakfast has been a phenomenal trend on Instagram. It has become a sensation because of several reasons. Now, let us talk about the advantages and benefits of having a break with your floating breakfast while enjoying the luxury of your private pool.

  1. Perfect indulgence to start your day

Everyone will agree that breakfast is essential. Having an on-time floating breakfast is better than going out and taking the time to choose which restaurant you will eat at. A perfect indulgence to start your day!


  1. Reconnecting-Disconnecting New Experience

The delectable and picture-perfect new floating breakfast experience has progressively grown in popularity. Trying this trend will give you solitude and, in the same way, a thousand like on Instagram. Such a reconnecting-disconnecting new experience!


  1. Safe and Fun Memorable Memory

With COVID-19 and its variants being a major worry, dining in the privacy of your own room is still a choice. What the infectious disease has taken away from the usual hotel breakfast experience, a floating breakfast in a private pool will make it up for a safe and fun memorable memory. It also comes with a wonderful view of nature, which may make dining even more breathtaking.

Dream Weekend: How to Avail and Inclusion

The Jumeirah Maldives strives to redefine space and aesthetic standards by providing split-level living with a distinct lounge area with generally opulent furniture, as well as a private infinity pool. 

How to avail? If you want to avail yourself the floating breakfast through the Jumeirah Maldives all-inclusive, book your dream weekend villa first and choose a Water Residence with a stunning private deck elevated to five meters above the lagoon, giving you a unique perspective to admire the Indian Ocean.

What are the inclusions? After booking, you can see the inclusions of your villa. This comes with a daily breakfast that you can choose from a regular room or bed breakfast, or a floating breakfast that you have been dreaming and free WI-FI in your room. It also includes the room facilities:

  •  Air Conditioning

  • Bottled water

  • Hair dryer

  • Ironing facilities

  • King bed

  • Large bathroom with bathtub and rain shower

    • Lounge area

    • Minibar (charges apply)

Rest and Enjoy Other Tempting Dining Options

Aside from Floating Breakfast, the Jumeirah Maldives has three tempting restaurants that you can choose from, none of which are "major restaurants" like those found at other resorts. Each of the three restaurants has a separate specialty menu, and we were blown away by the culinary quality!
