The Best Resorts in the Maldives

The Maldives is one of my all-time favourite destinations and a place I will always be happy go back to! It’s  is a tropical paradise known for crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches, and luxurious resorts. It’s an ideal choice for those seeking relaxation, rejuvenation, and wellness. There are so many fantastic resorts but here I’ve picked my top 5 (in no particular order!).

Soneva Jani

Soneva Jani is a breathtakingly beautiful resort located on the private island of Medhufaru. It offers overwater villas, complete with private pools and stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Guests enjoy the Soneva Unlimited Program, providing you with unlimited access to food, drinks, and experiences throughout your stay. From fine dining to in-villa barbecues, you can indulge in all the luxuries the resort has to offer without worrying about additional charges.

If you’re travelling with children this is fab option with a whole host of amenities and activities. A toddlers sensory room, hide out area for teens, musical piano floor, zipline, waterslide, games room and so much more are all included. And let’s not forget the Cinema Paradiso – one for all the family!

Soneva Fushi

Soneva Fushi is known as a barefoot luxury resort – the service and amenities are first class but the overall vibe is very relaxed. The resort features a range of villas, including overwater and beachfront options, all of which are sustainably designed.

Wellness is a major focus with a range of programmes and activities on offer. Guests can take part in yoga and meditation classes and indulge in spa treatments – there are even a range of treatments available for children. If ocean life is your vibe, then I highly recommended arranging to snorkel with the manta rays – it’s truly special!

Joali Being

Joali Being is a totally immersive experience, if you’re looking for pure wellness then this is the best choice for you. Their Aktar Centre takes you on a journey of discovery using the four pillars of Joali Being – Mind, Skin, Energy and Micro-biome. A Hydrotherapy Hall and the Discovery Sound Path therapy really enhance their commitment to a holistic approach to wellness, nothing is forgotten here.

The resort offers a range of overwater and garden villas, all of which feature a pool and private butler. Dining is exquisite with an ‘earth to  table’ approach that support local farms and minimises any environmental impact. Joali Being is great if you’re vegetarian or vegan, their Plantae kitchen exclusively serves vegetarian and plant based cuisine.


Baros is multi-award winning, and it’s so easy to see why! It’s known for its stunning natural beauty and romantic atmosphere (a perfect destination for special anniversaries and honeymoons). The resort features a range of overwater and beachfront villas in a contemporary design, all of which are designed to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings.

The Serenity Spa is a haven, hidden amongst the trees. It offers a plethora of treatments and rejuvenating yoga sessions – you can actually request a yoga session to take place anywhere on the island. If you’re looking to do some turtle spotting Baros is the destination for you, the house reef at Baros is one of the best in the Maldives. Baros is the only island in North Male’ Atoll where Hawksbill sea turtles regularly nest, testament to their dedication to to protect and rejuvenate the reefs.

COMO Maalifushi

COMO Maalifushi is the first and only luxury resort on the pristine island of Thaa Atoll. It is known for its stunning natural beauty, white sandy beaches, and exceptional wellness programs. The resort has just 65 villas,  some sit overwater with private swim-up terraces, while others are nestled amidst tropical greenery with gardens and private pools.

You can take part in daily complimentary yoga in the open-air pavilion, indulge in holistic Asian-inspired spa treatments in the over-water spa, or explore the ocean with some world-class snorkelling or diving. I mustn’t forget to mention the exceptional sushi and sashimi at their Japanese restaurant, a firm favourite with guests!
