Viceroy Maldives is located in the Shaviyani Atoll, 192km from the capital island of Male and the international Airport. Take an incredible 50 minute seaplane ride over the turquoise waters and Maldivian islands, to the uncharted northern edge. Here lies Viceroy Maldives, with over 17 acres of palm trees and pristine sand encircling a startling blue lagoon.
The resort’s 60 villas resemble the hull of an inverted Maldivian ―dhoni‖ (a traditional fishing boat); occupy the vast areas on the beach and lagoon. The resort is comprised of 60 villas with 31 over the water and 29 on the beach. Each villa is designed with the intent to have privacy, either on the lagoon or on the beach by providing ample distance between each of the villas to maintain intimacy and space for the guests.
Caught in the embrace of the Indian Ocean, the three distinct dining venues capture the essence of Europe, the ―Spice Trade Routes‖ from Asia to Middle East. Guests can select casual or elegant dining options, choosing from menus that please every palate. Additionally, the resort offers 24-hour In-Villa Dining service.
Anguru will offer the finest selection of guests’ favorite lunch items, ranging from organic salads, grilled fish cooked to guests’ liking, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas, along with a subtle influence from the east, offering favorite wok dishes such as Nasi Goreng, wok-fried lobster noodles, and glass noodle Thai salad.
Maldives is known internationally as one of the world’s best dive destinations. The Resort’s PADI-licensed Dive Centre is run by a multilingual team of professionals. The full allure of Vagaru exists both under and upon its waters—the sea and air are alive with adventure, and the key to accessing them lies in the expansive Dive and Water sports Center. With a house reef just off the shore plus unchartered dive and snorkeling sites, novice and experienced divers alike can revel in the island’s underwater treasures with the Center’s PADI certified training courses.
A range of water sports, both motorised and non-motorised sports are available. Guests can arrange fishing trips out in the deep sea, at sunset or out at a deserted island, or embrace the adrenaline rush of windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking, catamaran sailing, wake boarding and deep sea fishing.
