Maldives Luxury Holiday Resorts

There are some truly wonderful resorts in the Maldives. Resort offer different skills and types of luxury. We’ve create the three terms of Barefoot, Modern, and Elegant Luxuries to help loosely group hotels contribution similar experiences together in order to help differentiate them. One type of luxury is not better than the other, they are just different. Below is a explanation of different types of luxury. Typically, one type of luxury appeals to a person more than another. There are resorts in each luxury grouping that are of the highest quality. Some guests will mix and match and split their vacation between two different types of luxuries.

Barefoot Luxury – You are encouraged to go barefoot around the resorts. These resorts tend to be a bit more casual in dress and style, yet can still be some of the best resorts in the Maldives. The villas tend to be built of different types of wood and hand-carved features are common. The resorts tend to be more environmentally sensible than the other types of luxuries. The resorts are often smaller in size and have a more boutique feel. Bathrooms tend to be outdoor or open air. The villas tend to be large and spacious. While the resorts are more casual, there is still a nice level of superiority.

Modern Luxury – These resorts tend to be more of the cool, fashionable, and “in” places to stay. The resorts are elegant and stylish yet the design of the villas tends to integrate more of a modern style of architecture. Less wood is used around the resorts and villas in favor of sleek and fashionable styles. The resorts tend to have impressive architecture and amazing features such as underwater restaurants, underground wine cellars, over water bars, and pools in the over water villas. Typically these resorts are smaller and offer a more boutique feel.

Elegant Luxury – These resorts are what many people characteristically think of when they think of traditional luxury. Guests tend to get a bit more dressed up for meals. The villas use materials such as marble and granite in the architecture and design, especially in the bathrooms. The rooms and structures are grand, spacious, and impressive. The resorts are elegant, grand, and sophisticated. The resorts tend to be larger in terms of number of rooms and size of the island than the Barefoot and Modern Luxuries.
