Ideal for a honeymoon, Adaaran Prestige Water Villas is an exclusive luxury resort located on Meedhupparu island in the Maldivian Raa Atoll. Sharing a private island with the other property of the Adaaran Resort, Adaaran Prestige Water Villas offers 20 water villas that are both large, modern and luxurious, also private and secluded. This is a 5-star resort in every respect, and the service, including a personal butler for each room, is exceptional.

Considering that two resorts share one island, it means that guests of Water Villas can take advantage of the numerous amenities of a larger property, but this is not necessary, since this resort is also autonomous with its own restaurant and bar. Prestige Water Villas offer decent services such as all-inclusive food and beverages, butler services, complimentary massage, private beach dinner, snorkelling excursions and an introductory fun diving. Of course, in the Maldives there are more luxurious overwater bungalows at more favorable prices - view the often cheap Adaaran Prestige Vadoo or OBLU SELECT Atmosphere - but few ones include so many free offers. For those who can afford it, the hotel is ideal for a honeymoon or a jubilee trip to the Maldives, with a magnificent house reef that you will never tire to explore.

The Island

Opened in 2000, the resort is located on a 42 acres private island with 3 restaurants, a big swimming pool, a spa, a garden, tennis courts and badminton, as well as 4 bars (three of which sit on the beach). All 215 resort rooms are located next to the beach, and another 20 bungalows are built over the water - although technically they are part of a top category of sub-resort accommodation called Adaaran Prestige Water Villas.

There is no children's club or playground on the island and Meedhupparu is primarily focused on couples and newlyweds. There are many guests from Europe and Asia. The resort's vibe is laid-back, with most of the guests gathering at the pool bar, sunbathing on white sand beaches or house reef snorkelling. DOWNLOAD RESORT MAP

The journey to Adaaran Prestige Water Villas begins with a (possibly lengthy) wait at the Male Airport to catch a seaplane transfer. The 40-minute flight is incredibly scenic, if you can stay awake for this final leg of the journey. Upon arrival, guests are greeted at the end of a pier that’s surrounded by dazzling aquamarine water and then given fruity welcome drinks at check-in.

Adaaran Prestige Water Villas is located in Raa Atoll, 136 km to the north of the capital of the Maldives, Male. A seaplane journey will cover this distance in 45 minutes. Time on the island is one hour ahead of Male time an artificial time zone difference that many resorts use to make the days feel longer. At 750 meters long and 670 meters wide, the island totals 43 square acres. A staff of about 380 lives and works on the island year-round.

The pace of life is sublimely carefree and your troubles and worries will seem as distant as the tropical horizon. The gleaming waters surrounding the Island are irresistible, inviting the visitor to experience the underwater world which lies beneath the waves. Swimming and snorkelling are ideal pursuits in this pristine location, with a beautiful coral reef visible in the waters. All manner of marine life, from vibrantly coloured fish to rays and turtles are readily seen in the seas bordering the island beaches.

The great location of Adaaran Prestige Water Villas also makes it an ideal venue for water sports. An officially certified diving school offers programmes and courses for divers of any ability, from beginners to experts. Exceptional diving sites are available in the vicinity of the resort.


An intimate escape right above the water, each of luxurious Water Villas features spacious sun decks with private Jacuzzis. Luxury wooden interiors with specious accommodation open up to a beautiful sun deck with blue crystal ocean water right in front of you. You can enjoy 24 hour access to the Indian Ocean below, with amazing house reef snorkeling. Covered in hardwood from floor to ceiling, jetted tub, steps descending into the lagoon, and a glass panel for fish viewing. each Water Villa features a king bed and minimalist furniture; the beds and sofas are adorned in shades of cream and white. The large deck in every unit has a daybed. All units include minibars (with free items restocked daily), espresso machines, bathrobes, DVD players, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms have walk-in showers, tile walls and floors, and basin sinks.

The Beach

Partly thanks to the low wall in the western lagoon, the beaches at Meedhupparu island are almost perfect. Unseemly sandbags (used to prevent erosion) sometimes float out of white sand, and wavebreakers are installed almost along the entire perimeter of the island. Guests are provided with white plastic sun loungers, as well as drinks at three beach bars. The island is very clean, and it will be difficult for you to find even a speck of trash anywhere.

House Reef Snorkeling

The corals are growing well and there are lots and lots of fish, from butterfly fish to reef sharks. The reef stays easily accessible from the beach all the way down this side of the island (another good reason to get a room on this side). And the beach is fine and lovely underfoot. You can look out across the lagoon here and enjoy the sun, sand and sea that is as good as on any resort in the country. The loungers, however, are the white plastic ones without a mattress so its difficult to lie in them for too long.

The DIVE POINT diving school is the ideal spot to try on a scuba diving. Dive Center SSI offers diving courses and fun dive trips to the best sites of Raa Atoll at very affordable prices ($ 55 per dive).

Reviews for the Adaaran Prestige Water Villas resort are almost universally positive. The island, the water villas, and especially the service get extremely high marks from previous guests. One reviewer even stated that everything was just as it was in the advertisements, which is a big deal. The only negative is actually the price itself, as nothing here comes cheap, but those who can afford it should find it to be a perfect place for a honeymoon or other romantic getaway

...Apart from the airport transfer reception service, everything else was personalized for your convenience, the villa was so wonderful could just jump into the water directly from the terrace, the location is insanely beautiful, the food was great, one of the most wonderful holidays and I'm sure i will not forget it very soon! It's attached to another resort part of Adaaran which has beach resorts and is a larger goof size compared to the water villas. Went over to the beach resorts side for the shops or watch the fish feeding at night. The private beach and the clear blue water that you can see fishes swimming around without even diving in, the peaceful surroundings, would've loved to stay longer!...

...First, the sight is absolutely beautiful just like heaven. Living in the water villa helps us enjoy the sight even more better. Our butler Mr.Asif is quite gentle and helpful and as well as other stuffs here. I will never forget this amazing experience. Hopefully, I will visit here soon....
