Perch in your beach pavilion and explore a world of sensations. Toes enveloped by warm sand. The length of your body sliding into cool, pre-dawn waters. Being tickled by island breezes, kissed by the sun.

Indoors, there’s more to discover. Find your Deli-In, and let your tongue explore. The twang of pineapple. Salt from fresh popcorn, lingering on your lips like seawater. Velvety salmon, smoked and sophisticated, or the creamy milk chocolate of childhood. Your favourite melody surrounds you, high-tech speakers filling in every note. Before bed, slip under the rain shower, and let rivulets of water stream down your body like soft caresses.

Two bedroom ocean pavilion with pool

Live the life of ultimate Maldivian leisure. Drift away embraced by a floating cocoon. Let your eyes skim the water. The cool blue of the infinity pool bleeds to the azure of the ocean. A soft ‘clink’ of champagne glasses strikes a high harmony in the symphony of ocean waves and tropical birds.

Inside, flow with the island breeze through spacious rooms —two king bedrooms, sunken living room, dining room and cocktail bar—where cool hues offer respite from the sun’s rays. When night falls, get intimate. Flirt with the stars through your telescope, or envelop yourself in the pavilion’s sensual seclusion.

Two sumptuous bedrooms. A jungle-fringed deck. Lush. Lavish. Secluded. The perfect backdrop on which to design your days.

In the evening, pile into the Dhoni-shaped swing to reconnect, or snuggle up with freshly popped popcorn and watch a movie in surround sound. The whole family can dig in to the Deli-In for licks of homemade ice cream, sweet treats and savoury snacks.

Huddled together offshore, a quintet of extraordinary villas forms a secluded overwater playground. Close to the action but far from the bustle, up to 14 adults and eight children can experience a holiday fantasyland amidst azure skies, turquoise sea. Here, the island comes alive for you. Grills sizzle at your private barbeque and movie under the stars. Boduberu drums beat. A Dream Dhoni glides you towards the sinking orange orb on a sunset cruise.
