New-Look Ocean Villas Opening

New-Look Ocean Villas Opening

As part of preparations for the opening of the first Waldorf Astoria Collection property in Asia Pacific on 1 March, Beach House Maldives has unveiled its new look Ocean Villas available for stays from early March.

The 17 Ocean Villas have been fully renovated to provide stunning over-water accommodation which retains the charm and tradition indigenous to the islands whilst offering modern, chic design features.

Stretching out onto the lagoon, the 110 square metre Villas have been enhanced to offer stylish and contemporary indoor-outdoor living. New wooden furniture on the private sundeck as well as a hammock and traditional Maldivian swing from which to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean make the outdoor living space a key feature of the Villa, with steps directly into the ocean for a secluded swim.

A new bed, inspired by local furniture styles has been especially designed for the resort with an entirely new luxury bedscape. Light colours, drapery, automatic Roman blinds, including a state of the art touch screen remote control, 42 inch LCD TV and Blu Ray Players are part of the room experience, while the partially open air bathroom with i–spa bathtub, has been enhanced with specially designed lighting and fittings.

Completely private, each stand-alone Villa provides an exclusive escape for guests and glass panelled floors allow quiet observation of the marine life throughout the day or in the evening moonlight.   
The private island resort features 83 beautifully designed contemporary thatched villas including Beach Villas, Suites, Water Villas, Ocean Villas, one Grand Water Pavilion and a Grand Beach Pavilion. Each comes complete with a private pool and a butler to attend to every need.


The Villa upgrades are part of the ongoing re-branding project in line with the Waldorf Astoria Collection philosophy to bring luxurious, authentic experiences to its guests. Other highlights will include new F&B concepts across all restaurants including a new Maldivian Art Gallery and Café launched this month; an enhanced excursion and activity programme and a new Spa programme featuring Aromatherapy Associates, Ayurvedic and traditional Maldivian treatments, as well as the addition of direct seaplane transfers to the resort from Male International Airport.
