The site says it all when it introduces you to Jumeirah Dhevanafushi Resort: “Nestled at the south end of the Maldives in the heart of the Indian Ocean, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi was created for life’s tranquil pleasures.” From first glance, you know this hideaway is going to be special; reposing like an emerald in azure tropical waters, its unspoiled white sand beaches are inviting and its ambience a verdant paradise cooled by balmy ocean breezes. Seclusion is the order of the day here: getting to this resort, 400 kilometers from the Maldives’ capital of Male, your transport may be a small plane or even a seaplane. From there, your accommodations have enticing names: where else is a resort room or suite called a “revive”? The names are well-earned: your room will be truly reviving and intimate.
Savor a sunbed beneath a pergola crafted of native woods and rooms decorated in the hues of the island itself: coral, sand, green, blue. Your activities can include water sports of all kinds — swimming, diving, or boating — or simply relaxing on a private deck that’s a mere breath from the open sea. Spend your day on the coral reefs, then expand your culinary repertoire with island cuisines in one of the resort’s restaurants. Or, treat yourself to a massage at the Talise Spa in a suspended over-water treatment room, order dinner “in” at your private sanctuary, and finish your day with a breathtaking sunset vista. Whatever you choose, the Jumeirah staff is ready to extend the best in island hospitality to make your vacation a completely rejuvenating, refreshing, and unforgettable experience.
