WHERE IN THE WORLD
Newly opened in December, Robyn & Fleur were some of the first guests to stay at Vakkaru. Their opinion? “Vakkaru nails Maldivian style fused with natural elements and the result is the creation of amazing spaces for guests to enjoy barefoot luxury. Beautiful textures, fabrics and an all-consuming sense of calm and relaxation”
THE REASON WHY
Vakkaru is a brand new hotel, and we were lucky enough to go and stay in its debut months. For us it was a chance to experience another level of luxury within the Maldives. We knew from the moment we were escorted to the private sea plane terminal and boarded the plane, we were going to be very well looked after. Arriving in pure paradise, to white sand beaches and crystal blue waters and the entire Vakkaru team there to greet us (with a glass of champagne) – all expectations were surpassed!
THE STAR DUST
We had lost all our bags at Male airport and the staff at Vakkaru could not have been kinder. The on-site shop provided us with a beautiful range of clothes and the team did everything they could to get our bags back to us as quickly as possible.
There was free access to paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles. The rooms were filled with beautiful toiletries, the butler service was faultless, the spa incredible and the sunsets simply spellbinding…
THE WORLD SAID
The Maldives is undoubtedly the most amazing place I’ve ever visited. We were overwhelmed by the level of hospitality and the natural progression from bed to beach was like nothing I’ve ever experienced; waking up and wandering straight out onto our own personal stretch of beach – picture perfection then times by a thousand – this place was beyond our wildest dreams!
