The Residence Maldives

Wrapped in sweeps of sand and the peaceful Indian Ocean, occupying the southern Maldivian island of Falhumaafushi, this stunning modern resort offers state of the art facilities and a variety of activities.

Some 94 private beachfront and over-water villas all use traditional Maldivian architecture and are appointed with bespoke furnishings, local artefacts and wall-art for a real sense of place - everything you would come to expect from a Residence hotel.

The Spa by Clarins here – the first in the Maldives - is located over the water and overlooks the lagoon. It's perfect for relaxing, with six separate pavilions from where you can indulge in a wide selection of treatments.

There is an array of complimentary non-motorised watersports to enjoy and, being the Maldives, snorkelling amongst the stunning coral reefs is a 'must'. For those who wish to venture away from the resort's shores, island-hopping boat trips are also available upon request.

Dining here is a delight and when the sun sets, the place to unwind to the sounds of the waves is the Falhumaa restaurant where you can enjoy scrumptiously grilled specialities and the fresh catch of the day.
