Staying close to Malé is often seen as the lesser option in the Maldives. The built-up capital is not on the tourism circuit. It’s a place you pass through on your way to and from your resort. People usually want to stay on a more remote private island.  If the idea of long transfers is not for you and you’d like to avoid an extended Maldives seaplane or speedboat journey, we have two amazing resorts for you to consider.

These resorts are two of the most luxurious and esteemed: the Waldorf Astoria Maldives and One&Only Reethi Rah. These resorts, renowned for their unparalleled luxury and exclusivity, offer a quintessential Maldivian experience coupled with the added convenience of being among the top luxury hotels near Malé. Ideal for discerning travelers who seek the best of both worlds – minimal travel time and the secluded allure of private island resorts – these destinations provide a unique blend of accessibility and private island luxury. Situated in a region famed for its stunning atolls and crystal-clear waters, the Waldorf Astoria and One&Only Reethi Rah are sanctuaries where luxury, nature, and exceptional service converge.

As beacons of high-end hospitality, both the Waldorf Astoria and One&Only Reethi Rah distinguish themselves not only through their proximity to Malé and their efficient luxury speedboat transfers but also through their commitment to providing a luxury experience that transcends the ordinary. Whether it’s the allure of arriving at your villa via a private yacht, indulging in culinary delights with panoramic ocean views, or retreating to exclusive, oversized accommodations that offer unparalleled privacy and luxury, these resorts redefine the essence of a luxury getaway in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Both are premium luxury, located on dreamy private islands and they’re very easy to get to. Staying in one of these hotels or splitting your trip between both will give you the best of Malé, while still enjoying the luxury private island experience.

Waldorf Astoria

The Waldorf Astoria is a classic luxury hotel in the Maldives. The private yacht ride from the airport is seamless and no expense is spared. Enjoy canapés whilst you sail, but do eat them quick: the boat ride won’t take more than 30-minutes.

You might be close to Male but you’ll feel like you’re staying on one of the Maldives’ more remote private islands. There are 11 restaurants and bars to choose from. You can even dine in a pod in a treetop restaurant. All of the villas are oversized and well spaced out so you’ll have plenty of privacy. All villas come with private pools. Floor-to-ceiling windows will give you panoramic views.

One&Only Reethi Rah

A 40-minute speedboat will take you to Reethi Rah island. One&Only is firmly established among the Maldives’ luxury hotels. It’s an all-villa destination stretching across six kilometres of secluded coastline. Soft white sand, blue lagoons and stunning sunsets all compliment each other to bring tranquillity to your holiday escape.

One&Only Reethi Rah is located in the North Malé Atoll, a jewel among a string of coral atolls, lagoons and white sands. For convenience, Reethi Rah time has been set one hour ahead of Malé time, providing an extra hour of daylight. The villas were designed by Jean-Michel Gathy and they are extremely chic. Many big-name celebrities have made repeat visits to One&Only Reethi Rah.
