The resort is encircled by white sandy beaches, a rich house reef and turquoise lagoon. The 100 villas and residences each offer a haven of modern sophistication with luxurious amenities and cutting-edge technology, where the elegance of contemporary Thai interiors are carefully integrated with traditional Maldivian architecture.
