Maldives – synonymous with white sandy beaches, turquoise waters in various shades of blue, and a fascinating marine life. The destination offers the perfect setting for a luxury holiday with a myriad of resorts to choose from. Especially for post-pandemic travel, the Maldives are an attractive destination for an un-crowded holiday,
considering the concept of ‘one island, one resort’.
Adaaran Resorts, part of Aitken Spence Hotels, have established themselves as offering great value
for money through preferential rates and offers for the South African traveller. Adaaran currently operate four resorts in the Maldives, ranging from three star plus to five star, namely Adaaran Club Rannalhi, Adaaran Select Huduranfushi, Adaaran Select Meedhupparu and Adaaran Prestige Vadoo. Aitken Spence Hotels have further opened their first Heritance property in Maldives in 2019, Heritance Aarah which is a Premium all-inclusive, all-villa resort.
Each Adaaran Resort is unique in its own way and all resorts offer all-inclusive meal plans which is certainly the way to go when holidaying in the Maldives, taking into consideration that each island has its own resort and there is no other place to wine and dine, other than the resort.
Taking the all-inclusive concept even further, Adaaran Maldives have introduced their Premium All-Inclusive offering for some of their resorts, giving guests maximum value for money and guarantee sheer indulgence.
Within a 45-minute sea plane ride from Male International Airport lies Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, the second four star resort within the Adaaran Resorts. The arrival transfer by sea plane is nothing less than spectacular and marks the beginning of a unique experience. The island impresses with its natural beauty and wide sandy beaches with the resort consisting of 231 villas. For those who appreciate a more private and intimate set-up amongst the villas, Adaaran Select Meedhupparu features an exclusive overwater wing with 20 Prestige Water Villas, each attended by a private butler. Guests at the five star Prestige Water Villas further benefit from their own exclusive restaurant as well as private pool and separate stretch of beach.
Adaaran Select Meedhupparu’s beach villas boost their own deck with private access to the beach as well as an outdoor bathroom. Those who appreciate some entertainment in between sun bathing and diving will appreciate the beach disco with live band and karaoke. The three bars around the island might come in handy to cover up non-existing vocal skills or just open up creative ideas such as ‘island pub crawling’. At Adaaran Select Meedhupparu guests embark on a Premium All-Inclusive offering which includes curated experiences of gastronomic wonder as guests relish the diverse favours presented at the various outlets; designed around the best produce, expertly matched with international beverages and service from the heart.
Popular brands are among the all-inclusive alcoholic beverages, the mini bar is equally being stocked up daily. In addition to room amenities that increase the guests’ comfort, the Premium All-Inclusive concept further includes up to two complimentary excursions, namely a Sunset Cruise and Dolphin Watching (subject to a minimum stay), complimentary snorkeling fins and masks are equally available.
The small shopping arcade has various souvenirs on offer. The obligatory swim-up pool bar serves a variety of cocktails and has been made out of recycled glass. Adaaran Resorts follow a sustainable hospitality concept, being aware of the natural environment and making efforts to minimize the impact of tourism which can be witnessed throughout the resorts.
