    • The perfect Honeymoon at Vakkaru

      This was our fourth visit to this super comfortable and relaxed private island. Everything about this place is just what you hope for when visiting the Maldives. The staff are particularly friendly and extremely keen to please. It’s a short boat ride away from the airport with seamless connection. The food was more amazing than ever on our last visit. We are already arranging a return in 2021.

    • Paradise

      Vakkaru is a picture perfect holiday which can be an amazing break from all this COVID stress. Firstly, the staff have been so welcoming to us and have genuinely been kind to everyone, including the kids. Secondly, I totally recommend the snorkelling since it is very beautiful and numerous fish are there for you to see. Overall, it has been an unforgettable experience for me and my family and I couldn’t recommend it more.

    • Unforgettable stay at a magic place

      The stay at Vakkaru was truely memorable and perfect.
      All the measures taken for the prevention of an infection with Covid are very good and I felt super safe! If you feel like taking a break from the stressful time this is the place to go!
      I had a Beach Suite with pool. The rooms are tastefully decorated, with nice details. The villas are breathtaking, very contemporary and spaceous with a homely touch. The beach and the lagoon right in front of the room are just outstanding and exactly as you would imagine it-. If you are a diver or a snorkeler the housereef is very nice and also close to the Island you can visit Hanifaarubay which is very well known for its Mantas and Whalesharks which are there in certain months (this year they were even there until December)
      If you like to get pampered I can highly recommend the SPA. The Location is just stunning and the treatment I received from Lay was one of the best I have ever had.
      The Lagoon bar is the perfect place for a sunset cocktail and the sushi is amazing! It is a resort for Families or Couples and the island has a great vibe. It feels very relaxed and casual but on a top high end standard where all your dreams come true! Absolutely loved it and I can highly recommend Vakkaru. It is a true treasure. Thank you so much to the all staff members for your smiles and making my stay unforgettable.
