We’re so proud of the unique elegance and luxury we’ve created at Constance Halaveli, Maldives, that this year we’re entering the World Luxury Hotel Awards.

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.

Spa at Constance Halaveli

After a week of  fresh food, rejuvenating spa treatments from Valmont and Ila, snorkelling, star gazing and wandering barefoot, she returned home feeling ‘far more serene. Reconnected. Happy.’

In her Diary of a Maldivian Retreat

‘I am treated to a divine four handed massage with Ayu and Yulia in the spa, which they call the Meditative Indulgence – it’s an hour, but they add on an extra 20 minutes for heads and feet.

What is about these Asian therapists – their hands make the treatment feel like it goes on forever and forever, whereas in the UK an hour and a half goes so quickly. Is it their hands, the heat, the fact I’m already relaxed? They also have real power, no matter how slim or slight they are.’

And what of Halaveli itself?

‘We lie in a white rope hammock for ages together under the trees, legs entwined, and remember what it felt like to be together before we had our child. There are others about, but it doesn’t feel like it – we feel cocooned and undisturbed in our own little world. There 57 water villas here, and 29 beach villas, but really you wouldn’t know it.’
