What Makes the Oaga Art Resort Experience Unique Compared to Other Maldives Resorts?

When it comes to Maldives resorts, every single property takes guests into a different experience. Everything from the hospitality provided to the activities and overall resort experience is what makes each Maldives resort unique in its own way. Travellers who revisit the Maldives repeatedly can often tell which one of the properties is their favourite. This can also be based solely on the unique touches provided by the resort. This might be the friendly team or the amazing food that they experienced during their stay. For a lot of travellers, however, it might also be the unique design and architecture of a resort that keeps bringing them back to the property. One resort that truly stands out on this front has to be Oaga Art Resort, which opened up in January 2023.

The resort brought a whole new meaning to adding local touches to the luxury resort experience. Although a lot of Maldives resorts incorporate some form of local culture into the guest experience, at Oaga Resorts, it’s all about learning the different tales that make up the history and folklore of the Maldives. So, here are some of the most unique aspects of Oaga Art Resort, told by the team, and why you should visit the resort for the adventure of a lifetime!

What Makes Oaga Art Resort Unique from Other Maldives Resorts?

According to Maalimee Shiyam, one of the biggest reasons for Oaga Art Resort being unique is because the resort has authentic Maldivian culture.

No matter where you look at Oaga Resort, you can mostly see out history or our culture, or something from any of our talented artists, explains Shiyam.

Some of these unique touches can be spotted in the villas themselves. Everything from the names to the shape and design of the villas carries a story. These stories incorporate Maldivian folklore and culture into the design. Oaga Art Resort offered its travellers four unique room categories, all carrying Maldivian names. Whether you choose to stay at Veyoge Gallery Pool Villa, Haruge Beach Villa Stay, Bodu Haruge Beach Villa Stay, or the Odi Water Villa Stay, each of the rooms offers you more than just a luxury villa.

For example, if you look at the Haruge Beach Villa, you can see our really famous story Dhon Hiyala & Alifulhu’s story, depicted within all its drawings. If you look at Veyoge Gallery, you can see our local artists’ art pieces. Plus, also from there it showcases a late of two lovers, that is the story of Khalid & Sitti, explains Shiyam.

These artistic Maldivian touches can be explored at every corner of the resort, from the spa to the dining outlets and even throughout the activities offered.

Exploring the Spa – Blending Traditional Maldivian Treatments Into Modern Spa Experiences

The Spa at Oaga Art Resort has to be one of the most unique experiences at the resort. Although Maldives Resorts often takes spa experiences to the next level, Oaga Art Resort truly brings something unique to its travellers. At the Hoba Spa, guests can explore ancient Maldivian medicinal traditions. These ‘Dhivehi Beys’ treatments focus on promoting the body, mind, and soul for transformation and balance.

The Dhivehi Beys oils are produced in the Maldives, in a local island, and they are made according to the traditions that are passed to generations and generations in one family. So they’re all curated on full moon nights. They’re all made with local ingredients. They’re all handmade. There’s no machinery involved in the process whatsoever, explains Laura, the Spa Manager at Oaga Art Resort.

In addition to the treatments offered at Hoba Spa, the design also incorporates a traditional Maldivian experience. The entrance of the Hoba Spa would take any Maldivian back to their childhood home, with the swing and the welcoming sandy entrance. Bringing a unique traditional touch, the spa also explored a unique sauna experience called ‘Dhumashige’, in addition to the ‘Fenvadaan’ hydrotherapy area.

Modern Design Incorporated into Maldivian Designs to Bring Travellers an Authentic Experience!

In a move towards supporting local artists, Oaga Art Resort incorporates some of the most unique and beautiful art pieces throughout the resort. At the Veyoge Gallery Pool Villa stay, the experience incorporates an art exhibition into a luxury stay.

Recommended for couples and art lovers, the Veyoge Gallery supports local artists by connecting their art to potential clients and travellers. How does this work? For each night spent in this villa, an allocation will be made to the contributing artist community.

Mostly how the concepts developed here is like very much bringing a revival to our culture and architecturally, and also traditionally by adding a small modern twist to it. So it’s not just a complete cultural experience that is given but with a twist, says Nadhy, the an Art Curator at Oaga Art Resort.
