No one gets bored in the Maldives, especially not at Jumeirah Vittaveli, where a Talise Spa, PADI dive and watersports centre, six restaurants and bars (including an underground whisky and chocolate bar) and an on-island ice rink provide plenty of distraction for those who can bear to leave the comfort of their villa. But if adventure beckons, guests can now set sail for new horizons on the resort’s 85-foot superyacht, MY Vittaveli, available for daylong or overnight adventures across the archipelago. .
Spread across three decks, the yacht has two master suites and two twin cabins, each with en suite bathrooms fitted with hydrosonic massage tubs and Hermes amenities. With up to four hours cruising per day and the services of an onboard chef, guests can plot their own course around the South Male Atoll; visiting local islands to explore local arts and crafts, or stopping off at leisure to snorkel with whale sharks, dive on remote reefs or have a picnic on a deserted sandbank. Evenings can be spent hand fishing for dinner, served onboard or on a secluded beach, or perhaps sipping bubbles under the stars in the top deck Jacuzzi. Conclude the cruise with a couple of nights at one of Jumeirah Vittaveli’s 90 villas for the ultimate island-hopping escape.
