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!

LEFT When you’re in the in­fin­ity pool be­hind the over­wa­ter vil­las, it feels like you’re swimming right in the ocean!

BE­LOW The large bath­room has rus­tic touches, with fur­ni­ture made of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like wood and jute. BOT­TOM The stylish and cosy interiors of the villa bed­rooms make the re­sort an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion in its own right.

BE­LOW The re­sort’s de­sign takes ad­van­tage of the open seav­iews.
