Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives has unveiled its freshly revamped ocean villas, which comprise of water slides that allow guests to plunge straight from their room into the Indian Ocean.
All of the luxury resort’s freestanding Private Ocean Retreats and seven Infinity Pool Ocean Villas now feature the 23m slide.
General manager, Jumeirah Vittaveli, Amit Majumder declared: “At Jumeirah Vittaveli, we are always thinking of new and exciting ways to wow our guests. Be it the first ice skating rink in the Maldives, the five-bedroom Royal Residence, the underground Whiskey Salon, UnderChic, or our stunning beachside bar, B4R; the list goes on. We look forward to welcoming our guests to stay at the resort and especially at our new Private Ocean Retreats and Infinity Pool Ocean Villas, which now feature the longest water slides in the Maldives.”
Jumeirah Vittaveli’s Private Ocean Retreats are a popular choice among honeymooners, granting unparalleled levels of luxury. Guests can enjoy the newly enlarged open-air deck and admire underwater wildlife from a glass bottomed sunken lounge. In the evenings they can make the most of the outdoor relaxation bed located under the stars or recline in the extended overwater hammocks to enjoy beautiful sunsets.
The Private Ocean Retreats, which are perched on stilts, offer private infinity pools; a dining area for six, complete with a glass-bottom floor; and a master bedroom upstairs and second bedroom downstairs, complete with separate bathrooms and a walk-in closet on the ground floor.
Spaces within the villas can be transformed into tranquil spa treatment areas. Bespoke yoga and personal training sessions can be arranged in the villa, while other luxury touches include a private bar area and a personal butler on call 24/7.
Meanwhile, the Infinity Pool Ocean Villas boast extended seating areas and glass bottom floors, with overwater hammocks. The interiors have been refreshed with a new colour palette, while additional windows make way for a lighter and brighter experience.
Facilities at the luxurious Jumeirah Vittaveli include land- and water-based activities, including the destination’s first ice rink, a PADI Dive base, a water sports centre, the Talise Spa, six restaurants and bars, a wine library and two lounges. An underground whiskey salon will open in December 2018.
