JW Marriott has opened JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa on Vagaru island, Shaviyani atoll in the Maldives, marking the debut of the JW Marriott brand in the Maldives.
Located just 55 minutes via seaplane from Male, the stunning new resort features 60 villas, starting at approximately 2,520 sq. feet, which include private pools and wooden sunbathing decks.
Duplex Overwater Pool Villas and single- story Overwater Pool Villas are set on stilts overlooking the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, with a choice of sunrise or sunset views.
While Beach Pool Villas come with direct access to the pristine white sandy beaches of the private island, the unique, split-level Duplex Beach Pool Villa is designed to cater to families, featuring separate lounges, bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate larger groups.
Each room throughout the resort draws inspiration from the natural surroundings and local Maldivian culture, incorporating colors and materials that highlight the island destination.
The JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa has five restaurants, featuring a remarkable array of fine-dining choices; from classic Maldivian seafood to exotic Thai cuisine on a treetop restaurant, wood-fired brick oven pizzas and Japanese teppanyaki, along with a chef's garden to supply the resort with daily fresh produce.
Three full-service bars will serve up old and new world wines with over 300 labels to choose from, fine Japanese sake and handcrafted cocktails with over 98 different types of rum available. Guests can also enjoy 24-hour in-villa dining services.
