Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa

Encircled by palm trees, mangroves and white sand beaches that depend on the tides: this is Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa. Deep dive into jungle luxury at this private island resort in the South Ari Atoll where all-day sunbathing and 24-hour cocktails are the norm. While the main resort tailors to families with beachfront rooms boasting hammocks and lazy lounge chairs, there’s a dedicated adults-only section with overwater villas for those seeking solitude. Some come complete with romantic hot tubs perfect for two. A resort that’s known for its whale shark spotting, water babies will be in their element here so much to discover – a double edged infinity pool with ocean views and an offshore coral reef with 10 channels to walk into from shore to see black-tipped reef sharks, manta rays and tropical fish in the shallows. 

Why we love it 

Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa is an eco-conscious resort with various practices that ensure a sustainable, guilt-free stay. Using the endless volumes of sea water surrounding the resort, they’re able to turn it into drinking water using reverse osmosis. Other initiatives include planting coral gardens and offering guests the opportunity to plant a palm tree on the island during their stay.
