The Residence Maldives is just so beautiful, that you'll hardly believe that such heavenly places exist on earth.
Like a scene painted on a postcard - you won't believe it till you see it.
The food at The Residence Maldives is just other-worldly. This is obviously a big part of vacationing for many, and at The Residence, it is totally worth every penny. In addition to the various restaurants that offer their delicious fare from Asian, Indian and Western dishes, the Dining by Design concept is pretty popular.
On the beach, under the stars, surrounded by water, illuminated by candles and spoilt with a menu put together specially for you by your own personal chef, quite a few romances begin here.
Just imagine the stunning photographs and the memories that will be accumulated when you look back on the most important day of your life... What a wonderful start to a new chapter in your story - and the resort has some super honeymoon specials to make that story even better.
This is probably why The Residence is also a hot wedding venue.
The turquoise blue seas around The Residence Maldives are just waiting to be explored, and given that the resort is situated in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, one of the deepest and largest atolls in the Maldives, guests who come here are eager to explore. And it's interesting to see that it's not just the experienced who take to the water for various water sports. With so many beginners' lessons in diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, etc., many guests are keen to try their hand at something new. That's what is so great about this resort - there is always a sense of adventure in the air!
Once you're done with being in the water, on land there is much more to discover as well. The resort offers some lovely local island excursions, picnics, shopping opportunities and more. The kids too, are taken good care of at their Kids' Club where the little ones get the chance to do what takes their fancy from among the many activities provided, without worrying their parents.
There's a reason they call it "The Residence" . It's because the resort is just like being in your own home - your very own residence. The villas are breathtakingly beautiful, in addition to being comfortable and unique. Decorated with bespoke furniture and complete with awesome views all around, every detail of every type of accommodation has been given so much thought.
The Spa at The Residence has some great treatments for the weary holidaymaker. Their use of Clarins treatments, a well-trusted brand name, is one of the reasons that their therapies are so sought-after. It's really the only way to unwind from the chaos of daily life.
Don't be afraid to try something new. At The Residence Maldives, fun is not a myth, it's fact.
