Maamigili is a stunning natural tapestry of sun-kissed lagoons, palm-fringed beaches and picture-perfect panoramas spread over 100 hectares of pristine coral reef within the Raa Atoll. And amidst this untainted paradise lies Loama Resort, a quietly pulsating heart of rustic charm, idyllic beauty and exuberant culture that defines the Maldives.
Loama Resort is honoured to be the first ever resort outside of Malé to be awarded with an official licence to operate a museum. This speaks of resort’s commitment to preserving the cherished heritage of the Maldivian people, and expanding its influence beyond the archipelago. Loama Museum has an important collection of artefacts from key periods of Maldivian history, from an extensive collection of 15th Century Chinese porcelain to a pair of 11th Century sunken baths found on the island. These are part of an on-going process of excavation where other ancient artefacts have also been found and put into the museum’s collection.
In fact, immerse yourself in the Resort’s multi-faceted experiences and you’ll discover this is more than a luxurious enclave on a fabulous island in the Maldives; this IS the Maldives, all in one place.
Loama Resort Maldives at Maamigili boasts 38 Beach Villas, each spanning 67 sqm, nestled amidst lush natural foliage. Breathe in the crisp, refreshing air as you relax on the outdoor deck, or feel the caress of the ocean breeze against your skin as you lie back in the private outdoor bathtub; peace and quiet, Maldivian style.
Twin connecting villas located directly on the powder-white beachfront, Loama Resort’s 5 spacious Family Villas, at 134 sqm each, are perfect for a getaway with your loved ones. Watch the sun rise over a breathtaking panorama of glittering lagoons and abundant greenery right outside your window, then step from the comforts of your luxuriously appointed room onto virgin sands and wile away the hours basking in the sun on your personal lounger.
You could think of the Resort’s 2 Beach Suites as your Maldivian-inspired home away from home. Spacious 155 sqm sanctuaries with separate dining and living areas, the Beach Suites epitomise island living at its best, bedecked with an elegant selection of traditional Maldivian artistry such as kuuna weavings and handcrafted runba pottery, and accentuated by sophisticated contemporary nuances such as open air showers and spa-like amenities. Each Beach Suite also comes with a private pool where you can soak away your worries as you watch the world go slowly by.
Staying at one of Loama Resort’s 52 Ocean Villas is like entering a living rainbow. When sunlight illuminates the crystal clear waters of the lagoon on which these 72 sqm villas are built, a dazzling, multi-coloured marine world springs to life, at once humbling and captivating. Step out onto the sun-drenched patio and slip into the vision of turquoise that awaits you, or let the sound of soft waves buoy you to heavenly rest within your ocean-scented sanctuary.
The Resort’s 2 Ocean Suites are like jewels floating on the Indian Ocean, glittering 149 sqm vantage points for you to experience the best of the Maldives. Twirl your feet in the majestic waters below while you sip fresh coconut from the patio perch. Bear witness to the glory of nature, as the ever-changing skies soothe your eyes with a kaleidoscope of living colours. And have peace of mind knowing every modern comfort is just the press of a button away.
Like your very own kingdom in the infinite ocean, Loama Resort’s 234 sqm Royal Ocean Suite is a palatial sanctuary accessible only by a select few.
