The Maldives VIP experience isn’t your usual luxury holiday – this destination provides the elite premium life of luxury you can only dream of.

Beyond your standard villas (which are still considered gorgeous in their own right), the very best VIP villas go one step further in offering a once-in-a-lifetime kind of paradise, full of little luxuries and world-class extras that make a true difference to your island experience. 

We’re talking ultra-sophisticated decor, private chefs, exclusive excursions, and even around-the-clock concierge services dedicated to your personal villa party. They are the absolute crème de la crème of a Maldives trip.

So, what are the best VIP villas in the Maldives and what resorts are they situated in? Our top picks have something for everyone, whether you’re seeking a stunning Maldives Water Villa or spacious private residence… 

‘The Romantic Residence’ at Velaa Private Island Resort

‘The Romantic Residence’ at Velaa Private Island Resort is pretty much exactly what the name implies: a gorgeous One-Bedroom villa designed exclusively for couples seeking romance and privacy. 

But with the peaceful seclusion, you’ll also appreciate that this expansive residence comes with its own private butler and chef whose roles are solely dedicated to waiting on you and your loved one, hand and foot. 

This gorgeous Water Villa is suspended over the blue waters of the island’s lagoon, a perfect spot for enjoying panoramic views of the ocean just outside your bedroom’s French doors. There’ll be absolutely no reason for you to leave your plush luxurious king size bed if you don’t want to. Bliss at its absolute best.

Perfect for: VIP Couples and honeymooners.

‘Raffles Royal Residence’ at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo

The Raffles Royal Residence at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo truly does treat its guests like royalty. As one of the largest private villas at any Maldives hotel or resort, the Raffles Royal Residence is the best option for large groups. When combined with the two adjacent villas, there’s a total of nine different bedrooms on offer at this residence. 

It’s not just the space that’s grand, the entire residence feels impressive and opulent, most notably due to the amount of private amenities and luxuries it comes with, including a huge beachfront pool, in-room spa treatments, plus the option of in-villa dining cooked by a private chef.

Oh, did we mention even the children can get their own butler? We told you they treat everyone like kings and queens.

Perfect for: Larger groups of 8 - 15 guests all seeking world-class hospitality.

The Muraka at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

At the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, the best villa for a VIP Maldives experience is The Muraka – a three-bedroom beachfront villa spread across two floors.

The villas are styled with gorgeous contemporary decor and finished with modern amenities and facilities. There are also breath-taking panoramic ocean views to take in with every room, except just one – the out-of-this-world undersea master bedroom complete with a 180-degree curved glass acrylic dome, perfect for lying in bed and looking up at the exotic fish swimming by. It’s definitely not your usual place for an afternoon nap.

In fact, the whole resort is stylishly suited for travellers who love a hands-on aqua-centred retreat. In addition to the villa’s unbeatable ocean views where you can spot all sorts of wonderful marine life, guests here will also have access to exclusive yacht excursions, diving experiences, and family water sports activities. 

Perfect for: Groups of keen boaters, swimmers, or divers.
