More About The Residence Maldives

This five-star resort has been sympathetically designed to blend traditional Maldivian architecture with modern comforts and contemporary elegance. Private beachfront and over-water villas provide a peaceful haven just steps from the sands or clear lagoon waters…it’s a wonderful place for both couples and families to enjoy everything the Maldives has to offer.

The resort has a great range of activities so you can be as busy (or not!) as you like. Take a dip in the beachfront infinity pool before relaxing on a comfortable day bed and admiring the views or take the opportunity to explore the vibrant reefs, lagoons and dive sites close to the island. The PADI Dive Centre offers a range of courses for beginners and more experienced divers.

You can try out snorkelling, kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding, sail a catamaran, go windsurfing, waterskiing or deep sea fishing. To venture a little further afield, you could take an excursion to an isolated island, enjoy a dolphin cruise or visit a local village.

If you prefer to stay on dry land, there are complimentary sunrise and sunset  yoga classes, cooking classes and mixology classes.  Children are very well catered for too with a fantastic and fun kids club plus  they can enjoy private yoga sessions with mum or dad as well as a junior manicure or pedicure at the spa.

Dining doesn’t disappoint either with The Falhumaa and The Dining Room serving a tempting array of delicious dishes, cooked to absolute perfection.
