With crystal clear waters and fine, white sand, the Maldives is a destination that offers you an indulgent escape to unwind and appreciate a slower pace of life amongst scenery that is sure to wow you.
There’s an abundance of beautiful Maldivian resorts to choose from and it can be tricky (but fun!) deciding which one is best suited for you.
That’s where I come in! Let me introduce you to THE OZEN COLLECTION.
THE OZEN COLLECTION experience is perfect for those seeking a truly luxurious, tropical escape worthy of a postcard picture. You will have seen the infamous overwater villas complete with your very own private pool and a slide which takes you directly from your villa into the ocean? How about fine dining six meters underwater? Floating breakfasts?
Well, those instafamous resorts and experiences are exactly what’s in store from THE OZEN COLLECTION. What’s more, the lovely and friendly staff at OZEN properties truly know the meaning of luxury, so you can completely unwind and enjoy undivided attention, knowing that you will be absolutely pampered like never before.
Here are two of my favourite luxury resorts from THE OZEN COLLECTION...
OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI
Surrounded by a gorgeous natural reef and turquoise waters, the 5-star OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI oozes with elegance, style, and timeless sophistication. From fabulous overwater villas with slides to exotic fine dining and ice skating by the beach, every experience is meticulously crafted to indulge you with an unforgettable getaway and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
The RESERVE™ Experience (for special privileges) will have you feeling like a VIP as soon as you touch ground at the Velana International Airport in Malé. A personal Hiyani (butler) will welcome and assist you to THE OZEN COLLECTION Lounge where you can recharge with a service of beverages, cold towel, and Wi-Fi access whilst your Hiyani arranges your transfer.
A private and scenic 20-minute catamaran ride will bring you to Bolifushi Island, where you’ll be welcomed with a traditional Maldivian welcome: with Boduberu drumming, a charming shower of flower petals, fresh coconut water and palm leaf necklaces.
After being escorted from the jetty you’ll get a taste of what the ELE | NA ELEMENTS OF NATURE spa and wellness centre has to offer with a refreshing foot ritual in the arrival lounge. And the best part is that the pampering continues with an array of signature experiences right up until you depart.
For some extra TLC and relaxation, take full advantage of one of the best spas in the Maldives, offering everything from massages and treatments to guided meditation and yoga on the beach.
The RESERVE™ Experience allows guests to dine anywhere, anytime at Bolifushi island. This includes all-day dining at Vista del Mar, two speciality restaurants SANGU Beach and Tradition Saffron, SANGU Bar, main overwater bar OZAR and modern gastronomic experience at the signature restaurant ORIGINƎ.
OZEN LIFE MAADHOO
This 5-star resort can be found nestled away in the oasis that is South Malé Atoll. The OZEN LIFE MAADHOO has all the elements to make for an uber-luxe holiday, from underwater dining at six meters deep to exhilarating ocean excursions, combined to create an idyllic Maldives stay.
The INDULGENCE™ Experience will welcome you with a warm and wonderful welcome as soon as you land, and you will be whisked away on a scenic, 45-minute OZEN speedboat ride to Maadhoo Island, where your paradise awaits.
Whether you’re into water sports, scuba diving or are happy to just snorkel, OZEN LIFE MAADHOO’s certified PADI dive school (Dolphin Base Maadhoo) has an experienced team of professionals who know where to find the most exotic sea creatures. Discover spotted eagle rays, swim with sea turtles and if you’re lucky, you might even get to see a gentle and majestic whale shark up close!
For a romantic evening, discover MAADHOO’s cinema under the stars for a private open-air screening of your favourite movie, complete with a glass of champagne, plush seating and gourmet snacks.
If that’s not your style, the underwater restaurant (Minus Six Meters) no doubt will be. Enjoy exquisite seafood cuisine with perfect wine pairings from the degustation menu for a dining experience like no other.
At both resorts, you can choose from a variety of accommodation options, including overwater villas (don’t forget the slides!) and beachfront villas.
Plus, both resorts offer their own unique benefits for those who stay for four nights or more, such as complimentary spa treatments, dives for those qualified and à la carte dining as well as a dining experience at M6m. The longer you stay, the better it gets.
