Vivanta by Taj - Coral Reef is located on Hembadhu Island - less than 32 km from Male airport. The resort has been refurbished and redesigned to offer fantastic accommodation for both families and couples. Located in one of the best diving spots with its own house reef and a shipwreck that is just waiting to be explored.
The resort offers modern facilities in a beautiful, natural environment and the thatched 'Charm' villas on the beach are well named with soft pastel-painted interiors and a design that offers total privacy. The 12 spacious Beach Villas have a large comfortable bed positioned to look out to sea plus all the usual amenities associated with a chic luxurious resort. The 16 spacious Deluxe Beach Villas have amazing beach views through large bay windows and these elegant villas feature a furnished outer deck and large beachside portico.
The two restaurants offer a combination of cuisine - fine dining with the emphasis on Asian cuisine at Latitude and al fresco dining overlooking the lagoon at the Teppanyaki Grill. The Teppanyaki Grill serves sushi, pizzas from the wood fired oven and Italian classics. The Reef Bar overlooks the infinity pool and house reef making it perfect for sipping a cocktail as the sun goes down.
Vivanta offers some great excursions – discover the historical Male, take a seaplane photo flight, go island hopping or on a sunset cruise, perhaps try night fishing or even big game fishing. There’s also a submarine experience and a visit to Olahali for a picnic where the island has a vast array of natural vegetation, fruit trees and coconut groves, surrounded by the beautiful warm waters of the Indian Ocean - plus a coral reef teeming with brightly coloured fish too.
Alternatively just take stock and relax in 'Jiva' - an exclusive spa with a boutique, massage rooms and steam rooms for the ultimate spa experience. All treatments and therapies are carried out by trained experts using exclusive natural products in a comfortable and tranquil setting.
