Maldives Resorts Islands

Maldives resorts are private islands that have been designed specifically for tourism. The majority of these beach island resorts are run by single companies. One of the most significant distinctions between local islands and these resorts is that guests are permitted to consume alcoholic beverages, and bikini beaches are accessible, both of which are prohibited on local islands. Aside from that, several resorts have massage spas, parties, and DJs, all of which are not accessible on the local islands. Resorts are the greatest lodgings for a pleasant trip, but if you want to stay on a local island and learn about the local culture and lifestyle, or if you want to stay on a budget, visit the Maldives Hotels page.

Best Underwater Resorts in Maldives

Make your way to your private underwater aquarium and architectural masterpiece via the spiral staircase or elevator. Above water, relax in living and dining areas worthy of one of the world's most opulent homes. Muraka was the world's first underwater villa to open. The following is a list of underwater resorts in the Maldives (Conrad, ozen, pullman, huvafenfushi, anantara and niyama)

Underwater resorts in maldives
maldives Underwater resorts

The Muraka, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

This brilliantly beautiful resort is situated on two gorgeous islands, both of which are densely forested with palm trees and indigenous vegetation, creating a natural castaway sanctuary. Conrad Rangali affords spectacular luxury in sophisticated settings and has some of the Maldives' most intriguing underwater activities.

The underwater apartment at the Conrad Maldives, known as The Muraka Residence, is isolated from the main resort on its own islet and hence feels quite private in more ways than one. Muraka means to coral in Dhivehi, the indigenous language.

You may arrive straight by private aircraft from the airport or by speedboat from the main resort — a speedboat that will be available to you during your stay.

The Muraka is a 6000-square-foot, two-story apartment with one floor 15 feet above sea level and one floor 15 feet below. Guests may enjoy two bedrooms and a bathroom at sea level, as well as an outside terrace with an infinity pool, 24-hour butler service, and access to a private chef. You may also hire a personal trainer and get spa treatments in your room. Other benefits include free jet skis, a private chef, a private butler, on-call massage, spa treatments, personal training services, and more.

OZEN Maadhoo Island

The quiet island of Maadhoo is surrounded by lovely sandy beaches and pure blue sea. The OZEN LIFE MAADHOO is located in the southeast part of the South Malé Atoll, 45 minutes by luxury speedboat from Malé.

The M6m (minus 6 meters) underwater restaurant is the most well-known feature of the 5-star, all-inclusive Ozen Maadhoo. Hotel guests who stay for more than four nights may enjoy complimentary meals there, but keep in mind that while the resort is kid friendly, the undersea restaurant is not. They do, however, provide a very nice Kid's Club to keep them engaged (and fed) while you dine below.

The first OZEN resort, a favorite among Maldives 5 star resorts, OZEN LIFE MAADHOO, is a serene palm-painted paradise of luxury located in the beautiful turquoise colors of South Malé Atoll. The resort, which features 95 elegantly built villas and one VIP Residence, provides exciting experiences and a dynamic island lifestyle. An exquisite Maldives stay combines all the characteristics of an ultra-luxe vacation, from underwater dining at M6m to adrenaline ocean excursions.

Niyama Maldives

There are no underwater rooms here, however Niyama Private Islands Resort does have an offshore area of the hotel that is completely submerged. This is where the beautiful Subsix Restaurant and Bar can be found.

The Edge is the most unique location and Niyama's flagship restaurant. It's a fine-dining establishment 500 meters offshore that can only be reached by boat. Subsix, the world's first underwater club, is located eight meters below the surface.

Niyama is located on two picturesque islands in the Dhaalu Atoll, Embudhufushi and Olhuveli, and is designed to appeal to both young couples and families, with lots of activities and ideas to keep visitors of all ages entertained.

The resort's design respects Maldivian elegance while encasing it in a modern style in its eighty-six Studios and Pavilions. Niyama may provide a variety of lodging alternatives due to its unusually big number of rooms, at least for the Maldives.

Anantara Kihavah

Most notably, Anantara distinguishes itself by its "green" initiatives. The hotel was built on a former coconut plantation, but not a single tree was felled during construction, lending the entire palm-filled island an established, unexplored atmosphere. The canopied roads weave through the trunks, and some palms have become fundamental features of the houses, since the architects preferred to construct around trees rather than tear them down.

Your tasting trip at SEA, maybe the world's first underwater restaurant with an award-winning wine cellar, takes place in the most bizarre of settings. Angelfish swim through swaying soft corals that dapple with sunlight as they dart around the hexagonal area coated with mirrors.

Allow the Wine Guru to create a flight of wines from across the world for you, or combine rare vintages with a meal made by the Executive Chef. The basement has approximately 450 wines from a dozen countries and counting, providing you with a selection as diverse as our surroundings.

The hotel's ecological orientation does not imply any sacrifices in terms of visitor comfort. The villas have a Bose home theater system, an iPod docking station, a 42-inch LCD TV, a refrigerator with a wine selection, and a Nespresso coffee maker. Each villa offers a "for him and for her" dressing room as well as a double bath. The bathtub with a glass bottom is recessed into the floor of the Over-Water Pool Villas.

Pullman Maldives Maamutaa

Discover eight great restaurants serving inventive meals from across the world, inspired by ingredients from the surrounding waters and our own organic gardens.


The hotel is so close to Male and no need for another flight after a long international travel. It's a relief, but it's also quite useful for late flights.

The two Ocean Pavilions are set apart by a jetty that extends a hundred meters out to sea. They are designed for opulent living, with plenty of room, various lounging decks, and an infinity pool that links the inside to the outdoor deck (a terrific feature for organizing parties).

Explore the natural beauty of the remote Huvadhoo Atoll, whether as a 'castaway' learning essential survival skills before feasting on a BBQ of fresh fish from the lagoon, picnicking on a remote uninhabited island, or snorkeling and diving adventures among sea turtles, black tip reef sharks, barracudas, spotted eagle rays, and colorful tropical fish species. Engaging children's activities immersed in nature's playground, as well as a deeper dive into the ocean and marine life preservation at the Blue Journeys Dive and Activity Center, provide insights into long-term projects to protect the endangered ecosystem and traditional Maldivian way of life.


Embrace the unexpected and dine at W Maldives' four colorful restaurants and two bars. Our restaurants and lounges, which are beautifully spread around the island, guarantee that the pulsing beauty of the Maldives is infused into every dining experience. Our outlets' hours of operation are subject to change and are only accessible on certain days of the week.

Dive and enjoy one of the Maldives' greatest house reefs, which has direct access from your villa. The heart-shaped paradise is home to hundreds of species of marine life that are just waiting to be discovered. Jump in with your snorkeling gear at any moment and explore a whole new world, accessible from everywhere on the resort. Mix with the brilliant hues of the coral forest and discover its intriguing variety.
