With beautiful earth tones, minimalistic interior, wide spaces and warm and cosy ambience, Vakkaru Maldives is a nature lover’s heaven, surrounded by unspoiled aquamarine waters abundant with an impressive house reef teeming with exotic sea life. Oriented from west to east, the island has 3 blue holes nearby, rich in marine life and great for snorkeling and diving. One that is very near to the water villas, within 20-30 meters away.
Keeping the natural beauty of the island as unspoiled as possible, the resort is home to over 2,300 fully grown coconut trees. Luxury facilities include 113 villas and suites, five sensational restaurants, two bars Vakkaru Reserve, the very own wine cellar and an over-the-water Merana Spa.
Within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll in the Maldives, Vakkaru is a reef island composed entirely of sediment produced on the surrounding coral “faru” (or reefs), 85 percent it is thought, by parrotfish, the fish grinding up coral during feeding and, after digesting the edible content, excrete the rest as sand, creating the powder soft, brilliant white sands that encircle the island.
The island’s size is quite good, not too big and not too small. Beaches are clean and great, especially on the northern part with good swimming options. On the other side are some areas with rocks and a little more narrow beach especially opposite Delux Beach Pool Suites.
