Vilamendhoo Island

VILAMENDHOO ISLAND

Vilamendhoo Island opened in 1994, renovated in 2010, belong to Crown & Champa hotel brand, around the island 1530m, is a medium-sized resort island in the Maldives. Beach score 3/Max 5, 70% round the island, average width 10m. Snorkeling 5/Max 5, 100% round the island, distance to the beach 10m.

Vilamendhoo Island is a four-star resort, total number of rooms 189, room density 1.8/1000m². Vilamendhoo Island operates 4 restaurants and 3 bars. The spa is operated by Duniye Spa. The diving center is operated by Euro-Divers.

Owned by the Maldivian hospitality family, Crown and Champa, this luxury resort is many travelers’ idea of a tropical island escape. Situated on its own private island, and accessible by sea plane and speed boat, the atmosphere begs for superlatives. At its core, though, this is a laid-back, simple resort that uses its surroundings to great effect. There is plenty of space to relax throughout the hotel, so even at high capacity the resort doesn’t feel cramped.

ROOMS

1# Garden Room 55m², 18 rooms MAP

4# Jacuzzi Water Villas 85m², 30 rooms MAP

Picking your room at Vilamendhoo not only determines your digs and view, but where you eat and whether or not you’ll be surrounded by only adults or families with kids. Jacuzzi Beach Villas and Jacuzzi Water Villas are adults-only (and so is their dedicated main restaurant). The Jacuzzi Water Villas are the top category and the over-water abodes on stilts jutting out the sea call to mind the covers of plenty of travel magazines. Jacuzzi Beach Villas lack the over-water location and a little bit of size, but they are — as the name implies — directly on the beach. On the eastern side of the island are the regular Beach Villas and Garden Rooms — these are the only rooms that allow anyone under the age of 18.
