Jumeirah Maldives at Olhahali is the UAE-born hospitality specialist’s newest project in the Indian ocean which has taken over and even reflagged the paradise only some several months ago. Here Jumeirah has taken the perfection of the powdery white sands and the galvanic blues of the sea and added their own sense of magic to the tranquillity.
This begins with your home for what will ultimately be far too short a stay, with a collection of beautiful villas, some beachfront, with the vast majority over water, all of which will have private infinity pools gazing out across the cyanic expanse to the horizon, and rooftop terraces which feel like the deck of a stateroom on a luxury liner, which gives panoramic views out to sea.
This being Jumeirah, of course, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your villa to dine, and instead you’ll indulge in a floating breakfast or lunch served on trays that glide atop your infinity pool. Moreover, another option is a private dining experience on the beach as the sun sets, just you and your family, surrounded by lights as your own private chefs barbecue your choices as eagle rays glide through the shallow.
The promise of Maldives is always one of a paradise retreat, but here the Jumeirah has taken the skills it has honed in the competitive marketplace of the UAE and has sprinkled its best learnings over this memorable powder white sand resort.
