In a country like the Maldives, surrounded by the ocean and trees, there are numerous adventures to be had on the islands. However, when it comes to the Maldives, many people have a single direct image of it: a luxury resort where you go to relax, eat good food, and lay around lazily enjoying nature. This is not always the case, as the Maldives has thousands of resorts, each with a slightly different approach to tourism and embracing the Maldives' natural beauty.
Park Hyatt Maldives is one such resort, where guests are encouraged to explore the country's beauty by learning essential survival skills as a 'castaway' before feasting on a BBQ of fresh fish from the lagoon, picnicking on a remote uninhabited island, or participating in snorkelling and diving adventures among sea turtles, black tip reef sharks, barracudas, spotted eagle rays, and colourful tropical fish species.
With a sustainable tourism approach, the resort in Huvadhoo Atoll embraces a barefoot approach while also exploring traditional Maldivian ways of life. However, the resort also adds a touch of luxury with their luxury villas set among greenery just a short walk from the beach, as well as their overwater villas.
Their latest new addition, however, has been long anticipated by many. On 3rd August 2022, the resort unveiled the much-awaited luxury overwater residence which consists of three bedrooms. According to the resort the overwater residence is surrounded by an unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean with 895 square meters of living quarters with en-suite air-conditioned bathrooms.
The overwater residence has a massive 16-meter long freshwater infinity pool and extended terrace with sunken loungers and shaded outdoor dining and barbeque area, as well as separate decks off the infinity pool adjoining the master and king bedrooms for premier pool access.
The addition of this feature helps to tie in the resort's cultural, sustainable, and eco-friendly take with the luxury and relaxing home feel which many are looking for in their vacation, especially after the pandemic.
