When it comes to luxury Maldivian beach resorts, this one’s a timeless classic. At Intercontinental Maldives, time almost stands still as guests reconnect with nature and settle into elevated R&R, surrounded by otherworldly scenery. Become cast away amid the white-sand shores of the Raa Atoll near the Unesco Biosphere Reserve, where the hotel’s house reef and lagoon unveil a kaleidoscope of marine life including a unique manta ray sanctuary. The resort spa makes great use of this island setting too, with an overwater position for the utmost tranquillity.
There are five food and drink venues at Intercontinental Maldives including a fish market, sunset bar and lighthouse restaurant and, as the first and only all-Club InterContinental Resort, every guest is invited to enjoy the following complimentary benefits: breakfast at Cafe Umi or The Retreat; afternoon tea at The Collective or The Retreat (3pm to 5pm); evening digestifs at The Retreat & The Pool Bar (8pm to 10pm, details below); all day refreshments at The Retreat (details below), The Collective & The Pool Bar.
