Vakkaru is a resplendent paradise and located within the amazing UNESCO Biosphere of Baa Atoll.
Guests get the first glimpse of their romantic getaway as the seaplane descends towards “island of coconuts” in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Tiffany blue waters gently lap at soft diamond-white sands. Groves of coconut trees surrounded by verdant tropical foliage form the core of this reef island. At the western end, a half-moon of thatched villas juts into the shallow lagoon, curving around one of the blue holes.
The 113 villas and residences, whether on the beach or over the water, all offer complete privacy. For honeymooners, the One Bedroom Overwater Pool Residence designed for next-level indulgence is the perfect choice with its private infinity pool with splendid views of the endless ocean and sunset, separate living room and luxurious space for rest and relaxation. It is stocked with all the requisites for a luxe vacay, from an espresso machine, luxury bath amenities, bicycles, and yoga mats. A private butler takes care of any whims and fancies.
The resort has five alfresco restaurants, two bars, a wine cellar, and Merana, the opulent overwater spa, because you have to eat, drink and spa in between looking into each other’s eyes. Additionally, other romantic dining experiences can be customized as per the couple’s request – by the beach, on the secluded sandbank, in your villa, on a luxury yacht, or even in the middle of the jungle and in the Organic Garden.
The luxurious overwater Merana Spa with its extensive menu of pampering treatments is the ideal place for couples to refresh and rejuvenate. Spa time can also be combined with a relaxing sound healing session or just unwinding in the outdoor relaxation area.
