Vivanta by Taj – Coral Reef, Maldives

Perched on the edge of Hembadhu Island, Vivanta by Taj – Coral Reef is contemporary, simple and stylish. The picturesque island setting with soft sands and swaying palms is calming and secluded, promising endless ocean views and vivid sunsets.

Having undergone an impressive refurbishment, redesigned beach and water villas vary in size and position and all boast modern and spacious interiors and outdoor living areas, leading to the beach or into the lagoon. The two impressive Presidential Nirvana Suites have split-level living space, two bedrooms and the added benefit of a private plunge pool.

The infinity pool is the perfect place to rest, recharge and imbibe, while snorkelling and diving enthusiasts explore the coral reef and nearby shipwreck. The Jiva Spa, at the island’s centre, focuses on Asian healing and relaxation techniques, with all-natural treatments designed to sooth and restore.

Additional facilities include a dive school, island hopping service and various other land and water based sports. Make the most of the natural surroundings by trying any of the resort’s wonderful excursions, from seaplane photo flights and sunset cruises to daytime picnics on the uninhabited Kudabandos Island.

Vivanta by Taj – Coral Reef features two tantalising dining concepts, treating guests to tailor-made menus at Latitude, or fresh Teppanyaki and sushi specialities at Open-The Grill. Enjoy wood-fire pizzas at the Pizzeria during the day or light bites and cocktails at the Reef Bar while watching an evening sunset.
