Beach Villa with Pool
From the moment you walk into your private Beach Villa, you will feel a sense of place, the luxury of…
(Opening 1 October) The Raffles Royal Residence is beyond compare. It offers all the splendour Raffles is known for in this most incredible natural setting.
Occupying an unblemished stretch of the resort’s blissful Beach Island, the vast three-bedroom villa expandable up to 6 bedrooms is perfect for groups of friends gathering for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, as well as families who want to kick back and take things easy. Stretching comfortably over 1,700 square metres and accommodating up to 15 guests, the Royal Residence’s heart is the three consecutive reception rooms that border its 40-metre pool and look towards the property’s private beach. Whether savouring a fully catered barbecue, enjoying a boisterous pool party or simply admiring unimpeded views of another staggering sunset, everything the property offers can be enjoyed in absolute exclusivity.
Raffles Maldives Meradhoo’s Marine Butlers can lead guided explorations of the resort’s two spectacular house reefs, while the Royal Residence Butler will be available at any time of day or night to facilitate private boat trips, hearty feet-in-the-sand meals under the shimmer of flickering tiki lights at barbecue restaurant The Firepit, or indulgent treatments at the resort’s overwater spa.
Of course, with so much space entirely and solely at their disposal, guests might simply while away days without leaving the Royal Residence at all. Spa treatments can also be arranged on site; Raffles Maldives Meradhoo’s team of Children’s Butlers can be enlisted to entertain younger visitors; and a multitude of special events, from surprise birthday parties to decadent anniversary dinners, can be happily facilitated. Up to 24 guests can gather for a show-stopping meal to remember in the villa’s kitchen and dining room. Overlooking the lagoon and with its private bar stocked with rare spirits and the finest cigars, the expansive roof terrace works just as well as an intimate eyrie for evening sundowners as it does for morning yoga sessions sound-tracked by gently lapping waves.
A stay with friends or family in a Sunset Overwater Residence offers you the perfect balance of social spaces and private quarters. The villa comprises two separate bedrooms, a generous living area, a grand bathroom, and a large pool and deck area.
The west-facing view is far-reaching – the horizon stretches out for miles. Looking down into the flourishing house reef, you will be mesmerised by the abundant marine life living just below the pool deck. To be here as the amber sun dips below the horizon is a magical experience. To be here for any time with the ones you love is life-affirming.
The Overwater Residences boast two separate bedrooms, a living room, gorgeous bathroom, and a private pool over the shimmering turquoise lagoon. They are incredible homes of the highest quality, cleverly designed to afford absolute privacy inside and huge relaxation space outside.
While all the villas in our overwater sanctuary have astonishing views, the Overwater Residences sit at the very tip of the lagoon. The panorama they offer is so vast and uplifting that is truly unforgettable. Perhaps the grandest vista of all is the view from the master bedroom. In this sumptuous space, with the high ceiling and enormous windows onto the surrounding ocean, you are fully immersed in the splendour of the sea.
Facing west, with unobstructed views of the Laccadive Sea, a breathtaking sunset followed by a sky full of stars is the nightly experience from the comfort of your Sunset Overwater Villa.
You could watch the magical show from your chic four-poster bed, your hammock, your indoor bathtub or your daybed by the pool. Or you might choose to toast the fading day with a cool drink as our chef prepares you a delicious meal to enjoy in your villa. Time spent here together is time to be treasured forever.
Nature provides the backdrop for a stay in our Overwater Villa. The sun sparkles on the calm, clear water of the turquoise lagoon. Myriad colours flash below the surface as fish dart across the ocean floor beneath you. The brightest stars light the night sky. It truly is the perfect setting in which to appreciate the wonders of the natural world.
Inside your villa, comfort is yours to curate. Open up the entire area to the soft breeze and sounds of the sea, or enclose the living areas for air-conditioned comfort. On your private deck with glass viewing panel over the reef, relax in your private pool and hammock, or take advantage of the ultimate privilege – stepping down from your terrace into the lucid waters of the lagoon and commune with the marine life.
Two separate bedrooms make our Beach Residences ideal for quality family time. Their different zones harmoniously connect to create an abundance of extraordinary space both indoors and out.
Featuring a king-sized four-poster bed and vast bathroom suite incorporating a huge sunken bathtub, walk-in wardrobe, rain shower and opulent vanity unit, the master bedroom is perfection. The second bedroom sits directly on the beach. It is the place to feel the first of the sun’s morning rays and spy the first twinkle of starlight.
Between the two bedrooms lie the landscaped outdoor pool with terrace and beachfront sala, plus the poolside living and dining area with daybed, sofa set, dining table and casual seating. Add to this the private stretch of pristine beach leading onto the ocean and the scene is completed in unmistakable Maldivian style.
The ultra-luxurious Deluxe Beach Villas are defined by their devotion to the luxury of space and formed by two rooms between which sit a garden and a pool. The first – the bedroom suite – is a masterclass in composition. Separate sleep and study areas, a walk-in wardrobe, and a huge bathroom with oversized sunken bathtub, glorious rain shower, and beautiful vanity are all delightfully designed.
Then, beyond the pool and facing out onto the beach, the living room offers inspiring space in which to curl up and read, savour a meal prepared and served by our restaurant team, or simply enjoy the gentle breeze and open ocean view.
From the moment you walk into your private Beach Villa, you will feel a sense of place, the luxury of space and an appreciation for considerate design.
Here, a subdued marine-inspired colour palette brings a light touch, clean, modern interiors, while a four poster bed, double bathroom and living area all encourage real relaxation.
Outside, your lush garden fringes your private stretch of powdery white sand beach. A plunge pool and outdoor shower provide cooling refreshment under the golden tropical sun. A wide verandah leading onto the beach and a choice of day beds give you everything you need to slow down, stop and embrace your special sanctuary.
