THE legacy of Japanese ownership and one of the first water villas ever to be developed in the island nation of Maldives, give Adaaran Prestige Vadoo a natural edge. The property comes with its own slice of history.
The owners have changed but the island’s Japanese restaurant Kithajima is a testimony of its origins as are the zen gardens.
Guests can sleep right above the ocean and wake up to the roar of waves in Adaaran Prestige Vadoo’s 50-plus water villas. Each villa comes with a well-appointed wooden finish and a glass bottomed sun deck. Choice of sunrise and sunset oceanfront views ensure guests cannot turn away from stunning dusk and day-break experiences.
The all-inclusive Gold Package is the very definition of pampering, with meals, breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner hosted at the main restaurant Farivalhu. The restaurant service is exemplary, and so is the talent in the kitchen. A delectable choice of international and Maldivian dishes add a sumptuous touch to the paradise experience.
A butler assigned to each water villa means any whim is just a call away. In-room dining service or an extra set of snorkelling equipment, the dedicated service is just a call away.
Petit fours served during the evening turn down service on a daily basis, measures up to the promise of pampering the guests.
Alcoholic or non-alcoholic sparkling wine is served on arrival, plus a fresh fruit and mixed nuts platter is served on arrival in villa. Canapé’s are served in the evening as part of the high tea hours. At least two varieties of fresh fruits are provided daily in the villa.
Designed to offering unlimited access to the pristine blue, guests may hop straight from the deck for a swim in the ocean, stare into the endless horizon from their own little infinity pool or relax in their private jacuzzi with a glass of something from the mini bar (included as part of the Gold Package).
Villas are thoughtfully fitted with essentials like satellite TV, two air-conditioning units, two wardrobes, two sets of basins, espresso machine, a TV in the bathroom and excellent high speed wi-fi. (The entire resort is wi-fi enabled actually.)
Adventure sports and activities can be arranged at the purpose-built centre that offers diving lessons and guided sessions, morning fishing, island excursions, parasailing, whale submarine adventure and more.
Chavana Spa is yet another feather on the island’s decorated hat. Offering cleansing and rejuvenating treatments, as well as traditional aromatherapy massages and result-driven Elemis face and body treatments. Sessions at the open at outdoor treatment pavilions are highly recommended. Relaxation cannot be topped when you have the quiet of the organic garden and occasional breaking of waves for company.
Pick up a drink of choice at the beach, Dhoni bar or pick your favourite sip at the main bar which stands above the waves and offers both air-conditioned seating with panoramic view of the ocean, as well as an outdoor open terrace – a setting for every mood.
Or just relax and do nothing at all in Adaaran Prestige Vadoo, and you won’t come away disappointed.
