Hotel Description

The Residence Maldives is nestled on Falhumaafushi, a pristine island in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, believed to be one of the largest atolls in the world. Located 242 miles south of Male International Airport, it is reached via an air and sea transfer. This secluded retreat, a Leading Hotel of The World - 1km long by 120m at its widest point - offers unparalleled beauty. Its elegant interiors blend seamlessly with its traditional Maldivian architecture. The private villas evoke a pleasingly classic yet modern style, their bespoke furnishings rubbing shoulders with local artifacts and wall-art. High ceilings and French windows ensure every villa is airy and light filled. The beach front or over-water villas offer either a “toes in the sand” experience or the chance to slip straight from your deck into the cool, clear waters to reach your own private dive site. A buggy service is readily available to transport you around the island.
