Vakkaru Maldives Wins Big at the 2020 World Travel Awards

Vakkaru excursion
Vakkaru Maldives has been named Indian Ocean’s Leading Resort and World’s Leading Honeymoon Resort at World Travel Awards.

Vakkaru Maldives has a quartet of very good reasons to celebrate over the coming festive season and beyond; launched in 2017, the private-island retreat just won four times over at the 27th Annual World Travel Awards.

Only three years after opening, the independently run resort has been named Indian Ocean’s Leading Resort 2020 and The World’s Leading Honeymoon Resort. Additionally, its immense signature four-bedroom overwater villa The Residence won both Maldives’ Leading Hotel Suite 2020 award. And Vakkaru also the Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel Suite 2020 at World Travel Awards.

Established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, the World Travel Awards is recognised internationally as an arbiter of excellence in the luxury travel sector.

As we approach the end of such a momentous year, I could not be more thrilled that Vakkaru Maldives has been honoured four times over at the World Travel Awards. These accolades are a testament to the tireless effort every Vakkaru team member makes to ensure every guest stay here is as special as can be. As travellers the world over slowly start to move again, we look forward to welcoming them to our palm-shaded beach villas, timber-framed overwater villas, and the unparalleled – and now multi-award-winning – grandeur and beauty of The Residence.

Vakkaru Maldives’ general manager Iain McCormack said.

These latest accolades consolidate Vakkaru Maldives’ position as one of the country’s most exciting and inviting luxury resorts. It also comes shortly after the launch of its innovative new hospitality concept Vakkare. A commitment to providing the utmost care in all its forms; this enhanced service standard sees all members of the Vakkaru team make sincere and creative effort to surpass guest expectations.
