Greatest sleep beneath stars luxury experience in the world

From cosying up under a duvet while sipping on hot cocoa to stargazing with an astronomer. No demand is out of reach, and no luxury spared! Overlooking the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean, the Residence’s dedicated butler will be on hand to create a totally bespoke experience for you.


Royal Residence at Jumeirah Vittaveli, Maldives, invites guests to sleep beneath the stars at the bow of the Residence’s ship-inspired beach-front terrace.

It is true that whether you are seeking an exotic destination or a romantic getaway Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort offers unmatched diversity, subtle luxury and personalised exploration. Cocooned in a Maldivian hideaway, the award winning Jumeirah Vittaveli has recently unveiled their five-bedroom Royal Residence. By and large this is a resort all of its own!

It is home to two private swimming pools and overlooks the private residence beach. Plus it has a dedicated island grill restaurant which offers live cooking and teppanyaki style cuisine set atop a Dhoni shaped deck. Guests can also dine in the opulent dining room or relax in the sunken lounge which is surrounded by a fragrant lily pond and has its own overwater bar and sundeck.

Amit Majumder, General Manager, said: “I wanted to create an entirely unique, yet indulgent concept for our guests at Jumeirah Vittaveli. For the last five years we have continuously added new facilities to the resort. Now that we have crossed the 5 year milestone, we wanted to present something spectacular. The design elements of the Royal Residence are taken from the resort and made even more opulent. Its space and layout is second to none. Guests will enjoy unrivalled privacy with a totally individualised service, while still having access to the activities and facilities that our resort offers.” Although newly-launched, the Royal Residence has already claimed a prestigious award for ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Hotel Villa 2017’ at the 24th World Travel Awards.

Guests of the Residence enjoy access to the personalised concierge service, including private butlers, dedicated Royal Residence golf buggies and chauffeurs. The menu of iconic experiences available includes award-winning chefs, a celebrity photographer to document the guest’s journey, and a personal astronomer. In addition to stargazing, guests of Royal Residence have access to water sports equipment such as windsurfing, waterskiing, jet-skiing, kneeboarding and banana boat rides, kite surfing, stand-up paddling, kayaks, deep sea fishing, luxury private cruises, as well as scuba diving courses. All water sports and excursion activities are offered directly from the private beach at the Royal Residence allowing guests to enjoy their vacation in complete privacy.

Home to one of the healthiest and most abundant House-Reefs in the South Malé Atoll, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers numerous diving and snorkeling opportunities exploring the colourful house reef. The more adventurous can explore five wreck dive sites near-by, maybe a sunken treasure will await hidden amongst sleeping fish and blooming corals. The resort also offers tours along its housereef by semi-submarine – a comfortable way for the entire family to enjoy the beauty of the underwater world.

In the heart of the Royal Residence resides the Sanctuary suite, which features a king-sized bed, a walk-in wardrobe, and separate indoor living area. The bathroom includes an oversized stone bathtub by Kelly Hoppen™ crafted uniquely for the space, complemented by his and hers Hermès vanities. To complete the opulence the Sanctuary has its own outdoor Jacuzzi with TV, a private Talise Spa massage room, and a gym with state-of-the-art Life Fitness™ equipment.

Created with families in mind the Royal Residence also houses two Guest Villas, one king-sized suite and one twin bedded suite, flanking the main Sanctuary on either side. The main Residence entrance leads guests into a separate living and dining pavilion which features entertainment options to enjoy quality time with the family and opens out onto a full sized swimming pool. Connected to the Royal Residence is a two-storey, two-bedroom Guest House with its own swimming pool and private white sandy beach.
