Retreat to crystal blue waters, soft sandy beaches, and gourmet dining at the newly established Kuda Villingili Resort in the Maldives.
Located in the North Male Atoll, the five-star resort boasts premium access to one of the world’s best surfing spots, Chickens. Housing 95 spacious villas with 36 overwater and 59 beachside, the resort’s prime location also offers guests to enjoy panoramic views of the pristine ocean and the unspoiled nature of the island up close.
To best reflect the sprawling natural beauty that surrounds the island Maldivian architectural firm GX Associates, the resort employed the help of Singapore-based interior design company URBNarc who made expert use of natural materials. The interiors of Kuda Villingili feature custom, eco-friendly furniture and fittings including carpets manufactured from recycled plastic bottles inspired by the ocean and highlighting local flora and fauna. Traditional Maldivian art pieces can also be found dotted all over the resort.
Kuda Villingili also emphasises excellent cuisine, starting with three menus to choose from at their signature beachfront dining establishment, The Restaurant. If you prefer a more relaxed and social gourmet experience, their upscale three-stall street food market The Hawkers serves fusion food and hearty grilled meats. Classic cocktails, mocktails and hand-crafted beers are also on offer at their main or poolside bars. If a more sophisticated setting is preferred, the resort’s cosy and ambient Cigar Lounge holds the finest international whiskies and cognacs, and a wide selection of premium cigars.
