The JW Marriott is located on the Van'gaaru Island, part of the Shaviyani Atoll in the northern part of the island,is easily accessible via a seaplane or a boat transfer. Once you get to the island, it just sets the perfect tone for an exotic getaway. Exquisite water villas on the spectacular Laccadive Sea, a private one and two-bedroom beach villas, and a Royal water villa with nanny quarters for those who are traveling with kids. These spaces come with ample amenities so that you can decide to sleep-in as long as you feel like it and even enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in bed.

Each dining space is designed with unique offerings, from a tree-top restaurant to 24-hour in-villa dining so that you can indulge in your favourite dishes any time of the day. Apart from the calm surroundings of the property, you get a fully-fledged spa where you can choose to unwind in one of their six treatment rooms or do your daily yoga sessions at the yoga pavilion or simply dive into the many water sports and land-based activities to get the trill of real adventures.

Luxury and bespoke comfort

You will be greeted with complimentary fruit baskets, sweets and a welcome note upon your arrival to these lush dwellings whilst the interior and exterior are just as equally welcoming. These spaces are understated luxury surrounded by lush tropical vegetation overlooking the illuminating waters of the big blue. Uninterrupted views of The Laccadive Sea, a private balcony, large outdoor decks to just breathe in the fresh island air, private plunge pools to comfy beds are some of the amenities you get in the Overwater Pool Villa, Beach Pool Villa, and the Beach Pool Villa Sunset.

Those who want to capture Insta-worthy photographs, can choose to stay at the Overwater pool villa with sunset views where sunsets are quite surreal. Royal Water Villa is JW Marriott Maldives Resort’s ultimate stay where The Laccadive Sea and the sky views are unlimited with enough space to fit in a large family or group. The best part about it is that you get your own nanny quarters to accommodate assistance while you’re on holiday with kids.

Intimate dining settings to 24-hour in-villa dining

You can order what you like or just go all out at the generous buffets but you’ll have an issue with choosing where to dine as you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the number of places to eat at the JW Marriott Maldives. Eat Thai food paired with rum cocktails at Kaashi with dramatic backdrops of the Indian Ocean.

You will not miss your Italian food while being on a holiday as they offer risotto, pasta to wood-fired pizzas. Hashi is for the Japanese foodie whilst Shio awaits those who’d love to go on a date night by the ocean.

You can opt-in for the overwater spa treatment room where you get to hear the sounds of the lapping waters whilst being massaged. You can choose from a selection of services such as therapeutic massages, body scrubs, body wraps, facials, foot baths, and the list goes on.

An action packed holiday

If you’d like to explore the waters, you can even take a snorkel trip to witness the various coral formations and fishes. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the many activities offered by the resort from kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing to land-based sports. An epic kids club Little Griffins is definitely going to be quite exciting for the kids with a huge pirate ship, kid’s pool, and many activities.
