Following the World Travel Awards’ announcement that Constance Halaveli is Maldives’ Leading Luxury Resort 2015, we examine what it is that makes it so special.
Flying by seaplane over the stunning Indian Ocean of the Maldives with its sprinkling of secluded white sand islands is the perfect way to arrive at the luxury resort of Constance Halaveli.
From the air you can really appreciate the idyllic isolation of this beautiful palm-scattered island with its long wooden jetty stretching out into the clear crystal waters of the lagoon.
If you’re looking for your own private slice of the Maldives dream then the seclusion offered by the spacious, elegant water villas carefully positioned along Halaveli’s jetty (the longest in the Maldives) to offer the impression of total isolation, could be the perfect solution.
Each wooden, palm-thatched water villa, suspended on stilts above the clear water of the lagoon, has its own private plunge pool on its large wooden terrace and steps down to the water’s edge for those who want to swim in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
For the ultimate Maldives experience try bathing under the stars with a selection of water villas offering privately positioned outdoor bathrooms for moonlit bathing.
Larger groups can enjoy the privacy of their own garden and pool area in the scattering of beach villas along the island’s shore.
World-class fine dining
Executive chef at Halaveli, Jordi Vila, is passionate about combining the very best local fresh ingredients with the latest culinary techniques to create creative, refined and exciting dishes.
Having trained in some of Europe’s leading kitchens including the world famous three-star El Bulli in Spain, Vila believes that dining at Halaveli should be an integral part of the resort’s overall luxury experience whether you choose fine-dining at Jing or the sand-between-your-toes beach grill Meeru.
Situated in a quiet spot along the jetty’s wooden walkway with views out across the ocean and, through windows in the floor of the treatment rooms, down to the water and marine life below, is the tranquil U Spa.
Take time out here to enjoy spa treatments specifically tailored to you. Meet with your spa therapist and choose the kind of treatments you want depending on what you want to achieve from relaxation to rejuvenation, you can even select the specific scents you love for the aromatherapy oils. Or indulge in our deluxe range of skincare treatments from Swiss cellular cosmetic specialists Valmont.
Maldives North Ari Atoll is one of the world’s most exhilarating scuba diving and snorkelling destinations thanks to the rich abundance of marine life in its waters.
Just sitting on the deck of your water villa you’ll watch schools of small fishes darting between its stilts but for a real underwater adventure join our fully qualified team of diving instructors and let them create a dive specifically tailored to your own level and diving experience.
Explore stunning coral reefs and watch grey reef sharks snoozing on the bottom while schools of fusiliers, unicorn fish, red-toothed trigger fish and scorpion fish swim by.
Plenty to see and do
While hard-core sun worshipers will be kept happy with the sumptuous sun loungers and beach bar service for every one else there are a raft of activities from sunset yoga on the beach to tennis, water sports, sailing and fishing available if for those who want to be a bit more active.
Explore the area with a traditional dhoni boat ride or discover the romance of true solitude with a day trip to your own private island with lunch or a torch-lit dinner delivered to you by speedboat.
