At Halaveli, we’ve woven luxury into the fabric of everything we do. Nature, admittedly, gave us a helping hand to create the perfect backdrop with a tranquil lagoon of turquoise waters lapping against crystal white sand beaches.

So we enhanced the beauty, with a jetty off which you’ll discover secluded water villas, a tranquil sequestered spa, and peaceful restaurants and bars in intimate settings.

Luxury accommodation

With a range of luxury accommodation including romantic water villas, large family beach villas and an expansive 5 star presidential villa, Halaveli has a deluxe offering for every kind of holiday.

Diving features high on many people’s wish list when they come to Halaveli, and the spa that offers prestigious Valmont and Ila treatments is a major draw.
