The Residence Maldives

The Residence Maldives is nestled on Falhumaafushi, a pristine island in the Huvadhoo Atoll, believed to be one of the largest atolls in the world. This secluded retreat, a Leading Hotel of The World - 1km long by 120m at its widest point - offers unparalleled beauty.

Its elegant interiors blend seamlessly with its traditional Maldivian architecture. The private villas evoke a pleasingly classic yet modern style, their bespoke furnishings rubbing shoulders with local artefacts and wall-art. High ceilings and French windows ensure every villa is airy and light filled. The beach front or over-water villas offer either a “toes in the sand” experience or the chance to slip straight from your deck into the cool, clear waters to reach your own private dive site. A buggy service is readily available to transport you around the island.
