Inside the serene tropical island resort which guests can now enjoy all to themselves.

Sitting in the pristine tropical shores of the Noonu Atoll, the five-star Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives is a dream vacation spot for those in search of a relaxing escape after a difficult year.
Boasting powder-white beaches, diverse marine life, sumptuous private villas and a green ethos that thoughtfully considers its precious natural surroundings (the majority of the facilities are run on solar power and there is also a drinking water production plant onsite), it’s no surprise that the luxury Green Globe certified resort is often lauded as one of the island nation’s best. Now Movenpick is offering guests the chance to enjoy this slice of Maldivian paradise all to themselves with a new buyout package enabling exclusive use of the entire island.
Available for a minimum of three nights, this secluded oasis is located a 45-minute seaplane journey north from Male International Airport. Once transported, guests will enjoy exclusive access to all 105 of the resort’s impeccable over-water villas, suites and residences – all of which feature a spacious outdoor lounging area and private plunge pool. The most enticing of all, however, might just be the beautiful three-bedroomed Beach Spa Pool villas. Set over 2475sq ft, the shoreside hideaways are surrounded by lush tropical gardens and each features its own spa treatment room, private pool with breathtaking Indian ocean views and a wine cellar.
With the island’s crystal clear waters all to themselves, guests will be able to explore the house reef which is the ideal place to spot just some of the Maldives’ 2,000+ species of fish and marine life ranging from turtles and clownfish through to dolphins and docile whale sharks. The Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives’ onsite watersports center offers what seems like countless ways to explore the island’s surrounding turquoise waters both above and below the surface including diving, snorkeling, windsurfing and kayaking.
Away from the shore, there is plenty to keep guests entertained including unwinding at the Sun Spa which offers endless Indian Ocean vistas, sunrise and sunset yoga sessions or letting off steam at the resort’s volleyball and tennis courts. Mealtimes will be covered and guests will have the choice of the resort’s three restaurants served by the onsite sustainable hydroponic farm and garden.
