 An elevated infinity pool further enhances the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

In addition to long stretches of white, powdery sand, the three-kilometre-long island features 12 hectares of lush vegetation, 17,000 coconut trees, 45 species of plants and ancient banyan trees as well as nature trails for guests to discover the colourful wildlife.

"In a unique location featuring luxury accommodation and offerings, we are confident that the newest property in our portfolio will be the top of mind destination when visitors think of the Maldives."

To discover the fascinating lifestyle and culture of untouched Maldivian villages, guests can take a short boat ride to neighbouring islands.
