Location

The resort consists of one whole island situated in the remote Baa Atoll – a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Visitors reach the hotel via a spectacular 40-minute seaplane flight travelling North West from the Maldivian capital of Male.

Address: Landaa Giraavaru, Baa Atoll, Maldives.

Style & character

The wide palm-lined boulevard that leads to the hotel’s reception conveys a sense of established tropical grandeur. The resort’s 106 villas are well spaced around the island and have been designed in a local style using thatched palm roofs, recycled coral cladding and open-air living rooms based on traditional ‘bales’. The land-based villas feel the most authentic and private with their pool gardens surrounded by mature tropical planting and secluded walkways leading to the beach.

Food & drink

Four restaurants and four lounge bars dotted around the island offer guests a wide choice of destination dining. Star turn is the Al Barakat overwater restaurant, decorated with hundreds of Arabian lanterns and serving spicy Lebanese mezze, North african grills and top-notch rose wine.

Overlooking the swimming pool and beach, the three thatched-roofed pavilions of Café Landaa are separated by reflecting ponds. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, our chefs create exquisite delights with Eastern and Western influences.

Located adjacent to the seawater pool and overlooking the eastern coast of the island, Fuego Grill is open for dinner. The restaurant offers fresh catch of the day as well as a wide selection of organic and prime cut meats, salads, sandwiches and Asian dishes from an open kitchen pavilion. Teak tables and chairs are set in the sand facing the sea.

Located at the western end of the island overlooking a 2-kilometre (1.2-mile) lagoon, Blu embraces the essence of the Maldives as the place where the ocean meets the sky. From the restaurant pavilion on one side or the Blu Bar pavilion on the other, you can watch the sun sink below the horizon. The restaurant serves light antipasti, pizza and pasta during the day and fine Italian cuisine in the evening.
