A choice of luxurious villas – some with pools – at a brand-new private island resort in the Maldives, including transfers, breakfast, a fishing expedition and a bottle of wine for two calling all hotel aficionados – there’s a hot new address in the Maldives.
Comprising 120 rustic-luxe villas, this “one-island-one-resort” property is a masterpiece of contemporary design and sustainable thinking.
Unveiled in late spring 2017, the five-star Grand Park Kodhipparu brings barefoot island living within easy reach, at just 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé. With high ceilings and airy indoor-outdoor spaces, the resort blends typical Maldivian architecture with bohemian details that appeal to the modern traveller. You can expect all the trappings of a leading private-island hideaway – heavenly spa, water’s-edge restaurants and highly photogenic villas – plus finer details like built-in hammock beds over the water.
Of course it’s not simply the luxury aspect that draws visitors to this part of the world; it’s the unparalleled natural beauty. You can take island-hopping excursions from Kodhipparu, or make do with the powder-soft white sands and shallow blue lagoon on your doorstep. There’s even a kaleidoscopic house reef to explore – just one of many ways you’ll leave the real world behind while you’re here.
