The Residences Maldives

Gaafu Alifu Atoll, Falhumaafushi

One Bedroom Water Pool villa

An over-water villa in five-star Maldives heaven with half board, a massage at the Clarins spa, flights, airport lounge access and speedboat transfers

The Maldives is a unique patch of the world, comprised of a series of impossibly small islands peppered over the equator, affording them year-round sun. Each of these castaway islands are fringed in bright white sands and surrounded by the calming turquoise waters of natural lagoons, making them an idyllic destination that's nothing short of paradise. With a hefty dose of five-star luxury thrown in, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven with a stay amidst these stunning surrounds.

The Residence Maldives makes the most of its blissful situation and has been thoughtfully built out over the lagoon, creating a series of splendid stilted huts that house the Maldives' only Spa by Clarins, a series of serene abodes and a sophisticated restaurant. Back on the sands, you'll find a incredible swimming pool that blends seamlessly into its ocean backdrop and comes complete with a sunken beach bar.

You'd be forgiven for spending your whole time here in a lazy haze. Start your day with yoga on the open-air jetty before a stroll through the surf to find a secluded spot on the sands. If that sounds a bit too chilled out, head to the waters to snorkel the reef, learn to dive or take out a jet ski to explore the lagoon. Needless to say, there are plenty of ways to while away the sun-soaked hours at this heavenly hideaway.


  • Stepping out onto your villa's verandah to take in the stunning views over the lagoon
  • Savouring sublime fresh seafood at the intimate Falhumaa restaurant
  • Diving or snorkelling amongst the innumerable tropical fish, turtles and brilliant coral reefs
  • Getting your James Bond on and arriving in style with speed boat transfers
