Jumeirah Vittaveli obtained the Romantic Hotel/Resort of the Year at the AsiaSpa Awards gala held in Hong Kong. This was the 12th annual event of internationally accredited Awards. Jumeirah Vittaveli was the only nominated resort from the Maldives.

The AsiaSpa Awards ™ was initiated by the AsiaSpa magazine in 2005 in order to appreciate and honor the well-known leaders of Asia’s spa industry as well as to gauge the standards and innovations for spas in the region. With the intention of giving credit to the spas that innovate and develop the industry, the AsiaSpa Awards are respected for their independence, reputation for transparency and objectivity.

The reason why Jumeirah Vittaveli is so deserving of this awards is for its romantic villas, restaurants, bar and spa. One of the most romantic villas include the Ocean Suites which sit over the turquoise lagoon, only a few feet away from the main land. If romance means privacy, these double story overwater suite is the choice as it is only accessible by boat.

The resort offers a promotion for these villas for a 30% discount from the Best Available Rate. The recently launched promotion ‘Suite Memories’ offer guests in-villa breakfast and in-villa spa bath in order to maintain the spirit of their romantic retreat and make their seclusion last for their whole trip.

All the romantic escapes offered at Jumeirah Vittaveli come with private pools. Moreover, the resort provide a variety of land and water based activities such as a water sports center, PADI Dive base, four restaurants, two bars and a spa. Talise Spa is designed to enhance the Maldivian island experience with their overwater and garden treatment rooms. Its focus is on cultural connection and organic experiences in a luxurious setting.

Amit Majumder, General Manager at Jumeirah Vittaveli, said: “This is the seventh award the resort has collected this year and it reflects our strong commitment to excellence in service and facilities. The awards also underline our outstanding offerings when it comes to honeymoons and romantic escapes. The Maldives is traditionally a top destination for couple’s holidays, and to have been singled out in such a competitive landscape is a great honor. Couples will find the time and space here at Jumeirah Vittaveli to spend magical moments together, in an environment of astounding natural beauty.”
