We asked our Indian Ocean experts where they’d recommend for an all-inclusive holiday and one name repeatedly came up: Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa. In fact, on closer inspection, this private-island sanctuary isn’t just made for those with an appetite for all-inclusive escapes. We dug a little deeper and found something for, well, pretty much everyone. Ready to be made simply emerald with envy? Whether you can usually be found at the pool, the spa or the bar, find your match with Kenwood Travel and Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa.
Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa is home to one of the most comprehensive all-inclusive plans in the Indian Ocean. This begins as soon as you land with free snacks and beverages at the seaplane lounge. Guests can also expect unlimited access to cocktails & signature drinks menus, super premium branded spirits and beers, an in-room mini-bar replenished daily, plus four unique concept restaurants and two bars. Those with a penchant for intrepid activities can also enjoy boat excursions, free non-motorised watersports and snorkelling equipment, access to the sport centre, and special touches like evening entertainment and one complimentary bed and bath decoration per stay.
For lovers of luxury
However you define luxury, this Maldivian idyll offers guests the very best. New villas offer 150 square metres of private space, whilst 400 dedicated staff members ensure a tailored and genuine experience where nothing is too much to ask. If you don’t believe us, just check the credentials: Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa is a proud member of the Leading Hotels of the World as well as having scooped up the Global Win in the Luxury All-inclusive Retreat category at the Luxury Hotel Awards 2020. Meanwhile The Emerald Spa is the epitome of indulgence and relaxation with treatments ranging from aromatherapy to shiatsu massage, facials, scrubs, and hair wraps. We’ll take one of each.
We couldn’t really get away without mentioning the awesome eats on offer at Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa. The resort’s four restaurants span a variety of cuisines from around the world; guests are spoiled for choice from international fare at Aqua Restaurant and the Mediterranean Beach Club Grill, to pan-Asian at Le Asiatique. You’ll also have the chance to dine at the Maldives’ first and only South American restaurant – Amazònico – which serves up award-winning Brazilian barbecue and Mexican favourites in the heart of the resort’s rainforest zone. If lazy luxury is more your flavour, you can also stay put and let the chef-prepared meals come to you.
For the eco warrior
Okay, even the greenest, most eco-conscious among us need to take time out from saving the planet to treat themselves to a luxury getaway sometimes. At Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa, you’ll find sustainability and respect for Maldivian nature is at the very heart of their ethos. Accommodation ticks plenty of environmental boxes with the organic materials, solar panels, and waste water being used for irrigation. Irrigation of what, you ask? The rich soil of Fasmendhoo Island is being used for growing zero-mile vegetables to serve to guests. Meanwhile bikes and electric cars, plus plastic-reduction strategies are all being championed at Emerald. Gosh, we’re feeling virtuous already!
For the adventurous
Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa is nothing short of a paradise for lovers of adventure and escape – especially if you love the ocean. The fully equipped PADI dive centre onsite is there to facilitate the exploration of what can only be described as the underwater playground surrounding the resort. On a snorkelling or diving trip, you’ll be able to discover everything from vividly coloured corals and shoals of tropical fish, to turtles and manta rays. The adventure doesn’t stop there – this place is bursting with activities and excursions, such as dolphin cruises, parasailing, sunset fishing, and private boat rentals. How’s that for unlimited adrenaline?
Despite the glitz, glamour, and sophistication of this destination, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa also caters for five-star family fun. In fact, they do far more than this, offering guests from 3 to 12 years of age the chance to enjoy the largest kids club in the Maldives! The Dolphin Kids Club spans an impressive 1,500 square metres, full of indoor and outdoor activities, plus a dedicated swimming pool and restaurant. If the PlayStation corner doesn’t do it for your little ones, pizza making, crab hunting, or face painting should do the trick. Beyond that, the beautiful beach and variety of watersports is certainly enough to spark young imaginations. Cue the familiar chorus of “are we there yet”.
