The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives

5* out of 5 stars

The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives is a five-star resort on Huruvalhi Island in the beautiful Maldivian Raa Atoll. By day, it's all about white-sand beaches and views over the glistening Laccadive Sea. Then, as night falls, the resort becomes a place to party.

All 115 villas come with their own private furnished deck and infinity plunge pool. Whether beachfront or over-water, every villa has direct access to the lagoon, beach, or ocean. There's a king-size bed and an activity wall with snorkelling equipment in each air-conditioned room. And even a disco ball in the bathroom!

Probably the jewel in the crown of The Standard Huruvalhi Maldives’ six restaurants is the traditional Maldivian restaurant with indoor/outdoor low-floor dining. Dine on authentic Maldivian cuisine then chill out in the guduguda lounge. The all-day dining spot is also popular. Cuisines across other venues include Asian, Mediterranean, American, and European. Also dine on grilled seafood on the beach and enjoy poolside cocktails.

Facilities at the resort include a spa, tennis court, ping pong table, gym, and outdoor pool. Children and teenagers also have an inflatable water park, kite flying, and their own clubs.
