A combination of 70 superb overwater and island villas, the resort is an idyllic island paradise in the UNESCO listed Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve. The resort takes inspiration from the “shape of the water”, the marine life of the Atoll and the elements of water, sun and wind. The resort has been designed to maximise environmental sustainability whilst providing a supremely luxurious and tranquil Maldivian escape.
