Set in the pris­tine Noonu Atoll, Cheval Blanc Rand­heli is an in­ti­mate and con­tem­po­rary haven, a 40-minute jour­ney north of Malé. The 45-villa Mai­son has been con­ceived in syn­ergy with the is­land’s lush veg­e­ta­tion and la­goon views. French “Art de Re­cevoir” dis­pensed by a team of Al­chemists of­fers truly per­sonal ser­vice to create tai­lor-made ac­tiv­i­ties, un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences and be­spoke sur­prises for adults and chil­dren alike. Pri­vate but­ler snorkelling and div­ing, moon-lit yoga, fam­ily desert is­land ad­ven­tures, in-villa spa treat­ments and sun­set cruises, to name but a few. Food is also an art, with five in­di­vid­ual restau­rants from fine din­ing to re­laxed al­fresco op­tions that en­ter­tain and sur­prise guests day af­ter day. A cap­ti­vat­ing trop­i­cal Mai­son that cel­e­brates true crafts­man­ship, pri­vacy, cre­ativ­ity and gen­uine, car­ing ser­vice.

In Fe­bru­ary 2015, Cheval Blanc Rand­heli, the highly ac­claimed Mal­di­vian Mai­son from LVMH Ho­tel Man­age­ment, an­nounced the open­ing of The Owner’s Villa – an ex­tra­or­di­nary, stylish sanc­tu­ary on a pri­vate is­land, in the Mai­son’s turquoise la­goon. This villa will set a new stan­dard for lux­ury across the In­dian Ocean as one of the finest avail­able, of­fer­ing a wealth of ded­i­cated fa­cil­i­ties, the high­est lev­els of ser­vice and com­plete pri­vacy, for an un­for­get­table hol­i­day for fam­i­lies and friends.

This one-of-a-kind four-bed­room villa gives guests the free­dom of an ut­terly pri­vate home, with all the ser­vices of the Mai­son, and more. De­signed by renowned ar­chi­tect Jean-Michel Gathy, ev­ery com­po­nent has been exquisitely thought-out as an imag­i­na­tive, ar­chi­tec­tural com­ple­ment to the stun­ning sur­round­ings.

The hide­away sprawls across its ded­i­cated is­land, which is only ac­ces­si­ble from a pri­vate jetty, just min­utes away from the main is­land.

The main house runs along­side a stun­ning 25-me­tre-long swim­ming pool that frames the mag­nif­i­cent views over the sur­round­ing seascape, and re­flects the sun­shine and the blue sky up­wards with its black stone lin­ing. Three light filled suc­ces­sive liv­ing rooms in­vite to ei­ther a mu­si­cal in­ter­lude around the grand pi­ano, bliss­ful re­lax­ation in the mul­ti­ple so­fas and lounges, or a cock­tail at the bar. The ad­join­ing pri­vate din­ing room, catered for by the Villa’s ded­i­cated Chefs and Ma­jor­domes, will delight guests with the fresh catch from the day, abun­dant lo­cal del­i­ca­cies or guests’ favourite dishes.

On the ground floor, two spa­cious be­d­rooms, both equipped with their own in­door bath­room, out­door shower and gen­er­ous ter­races are ideal for chil­dren or friends. A state­ment stair­case, with a nee­dle-fish in­spired hand-rail, leads up to the master floor, which of­fers the re­sort’s only panoramic birds eye views - a dif­fer­ent way to see the is­land - that can be en­joyed from any of the spa­cious ter­races, all equipped with stylish out­door fur- ni­ture. Fine crafts, be­spoke fur­ni­ture and in­di­vid­ual art­works en­hance the taste­ful in­te­rior de­sign through­out the master suite’s liv­ing rooms, draw­ing room and spa­cious his and hers dress­ing rooms and bath­rooms, adding to the suite’s sense of place and ex­clu­siv­ity.

Along a short path­way through the lush veg­e­ta­tion lies a sep­a­rate Guest Villa, ideal for those in the party seek­ing that ex­tra pri­vacy. This beau­ti­ful beach­front villa has a ma­jes­tic bed­room, large in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing an out­door din­ing per­gola and a cinema for pri­vate screen­ings, or a fam­ily photo slide-show, cour­tesy of the Mai­son’s pho­tog­ra­pher.

Out­side, an ar­ray of ter­races, trop­i­cal gar­dens and pris­tine pri­vate beaches await guests for an un­par­al­leled dis­play of turquoise wa­ters where one of the world’s most as­tound­ing un­der­wa­ter ex­pe­ri­ences awaits. Set amidst the gar­dens, the Villa’s pri­vate spa of­fers ex­clu­sive treat­ments by Guer­lain in a dou­ble treat­ment room or on its ex­ten­sive out­door ter­races, where guests may also prac­tice yoga and Pi­lates with the Mai­son’s yoga master.

To com­plete this unique set­ting, Cheval Blanc’s ex­quis­ite Art de Re­cevoir en­sures a truly mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence for its guests. Over­seen by a ded­i­cated team – avail­able 24/7 and housed on premises – guests will be sur­prised and de­lighted by tai­lor-made ac­tiv­i­ties and un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences, that are made to mea­sure to meet ev­ery in­di­vid­u­als’ wish. Chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment and well­be­ing also lies at the heart of the villa’s con­cep­tion, with plenty of fun out­door play ar­eas, beau­ti­ful chil­dren sized fur­ni­ture, a wealth of toys and games as well as the pos­si­bil­ity to take part in any of the Mai­son’s ex­cit­ing chil­dren’s ex­pe­ri­ences.

At any time, guests may em­bark in one of the Villa’s ded­i­cated dho­nis for a short sail over to the Mai­son’s main is­land, where they can en­joy its di­verse din­ing, hop over to the Spa is­land to en­joy a sun­set cock­tail, or sail across the Mal­di­vian sea for a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery…

The Owner’s Villa of­fers the ul­ti­mate hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence for fam­i­lies and friends to en­joy the very best of Cheval Blanc Rand­heli in bliss­ful pri­vacy.
