Cheval Blanc Randheli
THE OWNER’S VILLA - UNWIND IN A PRIVATE PIECE OF HEAVEN
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.
