Wondering about the cost for a seven-night stay in a real island paradise? Check-in to one of the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Grand King Reef Villa With Pool rooms and it’ll set you back £8,499 per person, including transfers. Retreat to the serenity of your 319sqm villa and soak up sunrise views, your private infinity pool, an overwater hammock to relax in, plus luxury indoor living that features locally inspired décor, state-of-the-art entertainment, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi prices may be high, but accurately reflect the level of service you can receive upon your visit. Located on the South Male Atoll, the resort sprawls across 2.2 miles of lush greenery and pearly white sands, lapped by the waves of the Indian Ocean – so you’re sure to find a quiet spot to admire the peace and tranquility.

The Waldorf Astoria Maldives style & character

What makes the Waldorf Astoria Maldives so special? The resort is set in an awe-inspiring location offering guests a choice of plush Beach, Overwater and Reef Villas. Each of the villas are spread across three private islands, Ithaafushi, The Private Island and Two Stella Maris Villas, which are set out to sea and only accessible by boat.

Eleven restaurants make eating out here an experience you’ll adore. The facilities are world-class too, including a sumptuous spa, kids’ club, tennis courts, and enough water sports to keep even the most active child or grown-up entertained. But the exotic beaches, calm ocean, and clear blue skies alone are enough to excite luxury-seekers. Will it inspire you to make your Waldorf Astoria Maldives booking?

For sheer luxury, Ithaafushi – The Private Island is a 32,000 square-metre island with just three buildings, each set amid lush tropical gardens. You’ve got the Four-Bedroom Estate, Three-Bedroom Villa, and Two-Bedroom Overwater Villa, accommodating 24 guests.

Let’s take a look at the water sports. There’s parasailing, you can hop on a Seabob underwater scooter or take a kayak out to sea, while diving and scuba diving are always popular, too.
