With a total area of 1,400sqm, ‘spacious’ is somewhat an understatement

Where should you drop your bags for the best sunset views over turquoise waters? Read on to find out…

Soneva Jani

Water slide – check. Retractable roof – check. Private pool – check. As you can see the Four Bedroom Water Reserve at Soneva Jani is no ordinary villa. But this is just the start. This overwater villa in the Maldives also comes with a gym, a butler and walk-in mini bar. If you ever wanted to, ahem, splash out, this is the place to do it.


Water Villa, COMO Maalifushi

The Water Villas at COMO Maalifushi are 120sqm of minimalistic heaven. While couples will love the tranquility of the private pool; the spacious sundeck with ladder straight into the ocean and views over the Indian Ocean, parents will be grateful for the large and airy sitting area that can double up as a sleeping area for the kids. For unobstructed views and additional privacy ask for a corner option.


Villa Suite, Gili Lankanfushi

Gili Lankanfushi is renowned for having the most spacious villas in the Maldives. Its smallest one, the Villa Suite, is 210 sqm, so be careful not get lost! Each suite comes with an expansive overwater sundeck with direct access to the lagoon, but they also have a rooftop terrace with daybed and dining table. It makes star-gazing with your special someone that much more romantic. And we can’t forget Mr Friday, a personal butler who will assist guests in any request they need.


Dhoni Loft Suite, COMO Cocoa Island

Definitely one of the quirkiest overwater villas in the Maldives, the Dhoni Loft Suites at COMO Cocoa Island are truly one-of-a-kind. Shaped like a dhoni – a traditional Maldivian boat – the suites are surprisingly spacious, sprawled over two floors.

Laamu Water Villa, Six Senses Laamu

For the best sunrise or sunset views, the Laamu Water Villas are the best option, located towards the end of the jetties. There are many places for you to soak up the sun and enjoy the ocean views: on the relaxing outdoor platform with sun loungers, the overwater hammock or in the all-glass bathtubs!


Ocean Suite With Pool, Jumeirah Vittaveli

A free standing one-bedroom suite in the middle of the Indian Ocean? Yes please! That’s what you get when you stay at Jumeirah Vittaveli’s Ocean Suite, a lavish romantic retreat spread over two floors. With a glass bottom floor, you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your villa to admire the abundance marine life just below your feet.


The Crescent, Niyama

Technically a cluster of five overwater villas, The Crescent at Niyama is perfect for friends and families wanting some extra privacy. Accommodating a total of 14 adults and eight children, The Crescent is what can only be described as a secluded overwater playground. Two dedicated butlers and one private chef
