Baglioni Resort Maldives: Italian Grace On A Maldivian Paradise
Baglioni Hotels is a luxury hotel group that has had a great presence in Italy since the 1900s. With five prominent hotels in Italy, two in France, and one in UK, their latest project is their first ever resort in Maldives. Due to open in April 2019, Baglioni Resort Maldives is a luxury resort boasting over 90 villas all with a picturesque ocean view. This beach resort in Maldives is a 40-minute seaplane ride away from the capital of Maldives, Malé, where paradise awaits. Yes, only via SEAPLANE!
For the ultimate experience at Baglioni Resort Maldives, the Presidential Water Villa is not to be missed. As this Maldivian luxury resort’s crowning glory, it boasts an impressive 360 sqm of interior space and 460 sqm of outdoor area. Its waterside veranda is perfect for panoramic views of the ocean and the ocean-view terrace is fit for an unforgettable sunset private dining experience. With three bedrooms, each with a unique style, this villa can comfortably sleep six people. An additional perk is that this beach resort is pet-friendly so if you are flying in on your private plane, definitely do bring your best friend along! With a villa this breathtaking, don’t be surprised if you spot it starring in the sequel of Crazy Rich Asians.
While this Presidential Water Villa is best suited when travelling with family or a large group of friends, do not fear if you are simply looking for a romantic getaway with your partner. Baglioni Resort Maldives also offers luxury Maldivian villas that will make for a perfect honeymoon spot. The Pool Suite Beach Villa gives guests the opportunity to laze around in their private pool or if they prefer, they will also have access to pearl white sand and sparkling turquoise water right at their doorstep.
EXCLUSIVE DIVE CENTRE
Given that this luxury resort in Maldives occupies an island on its own, the surrounding waters are relatively untouched and unpolluted. As such, it makes for a great diving experience as guests will be able to get up close with vibrantly coloured corals and schools of fish when snorkelling. Not to fear if you are a total beginner at snorkelling as the dive centre offers lessons for beginners where they will first slowly get accustomed to the mask, flippers, and mouthpiece, before slowly stepping into shallow water.
For those who have had years of experience snorkelling and are on this island to see what it really has to offer, they can attend one of the two snorkelling adventure excursions that are ongoing daily. Guests will be taken out deeper into the ocean on a traditional boat where they will be able to spot some Napoleonfish, eels, and even turtles.
If diving is not for you, this Maldivian luxury hotel also offers unforgettable excursions where you will still get your share of marine life but while staying dry. With the dolphin tour, you will go on a 2-hour boat ride while accompanied by an expert marine biologist as you go on a quest to see some dolphins.
Otherwise, feel free to opt for a romantic boat ride under the stars. As you sip on some sparkling wine and nibble on traditional Italian snacks, experience the clear unclouded view of the sky. Fret not if you are foreign to astronomy or constellations as you will be given a guide to help you identify those sparkling gems up in the sky.
This Maldivian paradise is only a short flight away so it’s definitely something to consider if you want to escape the monsoon season at the end of the year. With Baglioni Resort Maldives opening in April next year, make your bookings soon in order to be one of the first few to enjoy this luxury hotel in Maldives.
Baglioni Resort Maldives is only accessible by seaplane but if you would like a short tour of Malé before heading to your sunny haven, definitely consider booking a private hire car. The driver is likely to be a local who will have much to share with you, with almost too much enthusiasm. The Travel141 International Car Rental service will be launching soon so do subscribe to our newsletter below in order to receive regular updates.
