Viceroy Maldives Resort Opens For Business

By Paul Joseph

A new ultra-luxury island resort in the Maldives opened its door to the public earlier this month, offering visitors some of the best scuba diving opportunities in the region and a host of other lavish services and amenities.

Located on the archipelago’s pristine Vagaru Island, the Viceroy Maldives Resort includes 61 thatched villas dotted along a pristine shore, each with stunning views of the Indian Ocean.

As well as diving, guests can enjoy a host of other water-based recreational activities including scuba diving, wake boarding, wind surfing, catamaran sailing, fishing trips, and kayaking.

Each villa at the resort boasts private decks and plunge pools, with airy, whitewashed interiors, whilst the resort is also home to five dining options offering everything from casual beachside cuisine to gourmet Italian fare.

Those looking to relax and rejuvenate can enjoy spa treatments at the resort’s over-water spa villas, which include seven treatment suites for both individuals and couples.

Double rooms at Viceroy Maldives Resort begin at $1,350 (£900) for Bed and Breakfast.
