CHECK OUT – GRAND PARK KODHIPPARU
AN ALL-VILLA LUXURY RESORT IN THE MALDIVES
A breathtaking all-villa luxury resort in the Maldives.
The Maldives is a travel destination that many yearn to check off their bucket list for its beautiful sea view resorts, offering the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Known for its one-island-one-resort concept, the Maldives’ latest addition is Grand Park Kodhipparu, located on North Male Atoll.
Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, this luxurious resort houses 120 beachfront and overwater villas, with 65 units built with a private pool. Whether it’s lazing in the pool or reading in your room, you’ll enjoy expansive views of the ocean. Boundaries between the indoors and outdoors are blurred, further enhancing the experience of tranquil resort living.
The interiors of the villas exude a rustic charm that’s achieved with natural materials, curated to blend into the surroundings without being overbearing. Bespoke furniture, such as a live wood coffee table, paired with brightly hued decorative accessories, give the space a cosy yet vibrant look.
Wood is used extensively in the bathroom, too, adding warmth to the intimate space. Complete with a freestanding bathtub and an open shower that enjoys both privacy and natural ventilation, the result is a resort spa-like ambience that promises maximum relaxation.
Beyond the villas, public spaces throughout the resort like the lobby, infinity pools or spa, do not escape the idyllic views of the sea either. For a holistic experience, guests can also sign up for water sports such as diving, kayaking and parasailing, or enjoy a romantic dinner by the beach!
