We may be loving our backyard like never before, but we’ll never stop dreaming across the sea. And the ocean idyll doesn’t get much dreamier than the Maldives where the Raffles Maldives Meradhoo has just revealed its new Raffles Royal Residence. Every bit the ultimate Indian Ocean hideaway, the six-bedroom villa occupies a silken stretch of the resort’s Beach Island with its very own 40-metre swimming pool.
Interiors blend Raffles’ signature colonial style with design inspired by the incredible seascapes plus plenty of gorgeous spaces to entertain or retreat. We have eyes on the expansive roof terrace which overlooks the lagoon (perfect for morning yoga) and boasts a private bar for sunset sundowners. Enjoy guided explorations of the resort’s two house reefs with your Marine Butler or call on the Royal Residence Butler 24/7 to facilitate bespoke boat trips, star-lit beach barbeques, or indulgent treatments at the resort’s overwater spa or in villa.
The resort is located at the southernmost reach of the Maldives in the pristine Gaafu Alifu atoll and will be welcoming guests again from October 2020.
Couples will love: The residence would be insane indulgence for two (budget permitting) but if you love to travel with friends, it’s a perfect buddymoon-style escape or a heavenly base for an intimate celebration.
