Island Paradise in the Magical Maldives?
“Ooh Heaven is a place on Earth…” (sounds like singer, Belinda Carlisle, had the Maldives in mind!) Experience 5-star island paradise at The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort located on the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Baa Atoll. Enjoy uninterrupted ocean and lagoon views whether you choose overwater or beach villas. Few places compare to the natural beauty of this incredible island nation. The eco-friendly resort has made use of local natural materials to blend into the environment. Featuring a unique design in the shape of a fish, the Miriandhoo celebrates its surrounding exquisite marine life. Villas designed to look like turtle backs welcome you and the arrival jetty resembles clamshells and the ocean waves. Friendly, helpful staff greet you and make your stay memorable every moment.
There are 70 villas and suites, 41 on island and 29 over-water stilted villas, all styled to perfection. The spacious over-water villas have private decks with ladders for direct access to the warm, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Each secluded villa screams luxury with private pools available in select accommodations. There is no denying that this is the place to experience a true island paradise.
With four dining options on offer you are in for a stellar selection of culinary island delights. Island Kitchen is an airy venue overlooking the pool where you enjoy daily buffet breakfasts as well as a-la-carte Chinese, Indian and Maldivian cuisine. You may even spot dolphins cruising past while you are enjoying your breakfast. There is also a casual outdoor eatery where you can watch the Chef create magic in an open kitchen. Chefs serve Authentic Asian food for lunch and dinner and the chilli crab is apparently to die for! Try it and let us know!
Indulge in Japanese cuisine at The Pearl oceanfront restaurant where you can sip pre-dinner drinks on an open-air deck. Enjoy cocktails and tapas while watching the sunset at the outdoor bar with views of the crystalline Indian Ocean. For a romantic adventure arrange a romantic picnic lunch with umbrellas and loungers on a private island.
The resort boasts a fully equipped watersports centre with expert instructors for those wanting to learn how to dive. The Baa Atoll is a diver’s paradise with a plethora of coral reefs teeming with manta rays and whale sharks. Because the resort is close to Hanifaru Bay, a manta ray feeding hotspot, manta ray snorkelling is a popular activity. Water visibility is 20 to 40 meters, so this is an excellent destination to flex on Instagram and take epic underwater photos. The water sports centre will take care of any desired excursions including parasailing and kayaking.
Power up your performance and work out at the 24-hour beach side fitness studio or indulge your senses at The Heavenly Spa. Spa pampering includes massages, facials and body treatments with magnificent views of the ocean. There is also a jacuzzi to unwind in and recharge.
The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort is the picture-perfect island destination for a wedding or honeymoon. With a team of experts taking care of every detail on your special day, you can say “I do” at one of the stunning oceanfront venues and enjoy your happily ever after.
