Constance Halaveli is a thoroughly luxurious offering floating amidst the turquoise beauty of the North Ari Atoll in the Maldives.

Designed in the shape of a dhoni, the traditional Maldivian boat, Halaveli is a place so restful you’ll feel the stress of daily life seeping away as you enjoy the knockout food, exquisite surroundings and exemplary personal service.
All of this combines to make it the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or anniversary.
