Jumeirah Group announced the opening of Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, its first luxury resort in the Maldives. Dhevanafushi, which translates into “unique island,” is situated in Gaafu Alifu Atoll and is the only all-suite luxury resort in the Maldives.
Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is an exclusive two-resort island, inspired by Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. Along with the main island, which boasts 38 suites and villas, there is The Ocean Pearls, a distinctive water village situated a half-mile off of the main island.
Dhevanafushi provides spacious bedrooms featuring timber flooring, high ceilings and an open bathroom and shower. Guests also have access to their own private beach or garden and their own private swimming pool, as well as a private butler and personal chef.
The resort has three restaurants and a bar, all of which provide a personalized cooking experience where guests can enjoy innovative menu creations. Additionally, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi features a Yoga Pavilion and Talise Spa suspended over the Indian Ocean, a PADI-certified diving center and a variety of water sports ranging from canoeing and sailing to deep sea fishing and private boat charters.
In addition to Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, the Jumeirah will open the Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives later this year.
