A sophisticated yet family friendly slice of paradise.
Situated in the UNESCO Baa Atoll, miles from the humdrum of the outside world, Vakkaru is a hidden gem.
The selection of beautifully appointed beach bungalows, villas suspended over the water as well as larger residences are the epitome of elegance. Contemporary and understated, they capture their wonderful surroundings without competing and allow instant access either to the beach or straight into a sparkling lagoon.
Unobtrusive butlers take care of your every whim, while you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. There are several choices, but the global cuisine cooked up at Amaany (where you can freely eat with your toes in the sand) and the Italian dishes paired with fine wines at poolside Isoletta are worth a special mention.
Snorkel the house reef or swim out to the blue hole nearby to see shoals of magnificently colourful fish. Diving here is also exceptional with mantas and whale sharks frequent visitors to the warm, clear waters surrounding the island.
Children of all ages are welcome at Vakkaru, and the Parrot Fish Club is one of the best kids clubs we’ve seen. Staff go the extra mile to ensure parents get some downtime knowing their little ones are off exploring the island and feeding their imaginations with age tailored activities.
