Only a 20-minute speedboat journey from Male, yet still retaining that desert island feeling so many people crave when visiting the Maldives, Jumeirah Vittaveli is a contemporary yet rustic property. With 24-hour butler service, private pools in every villa and spacious accommodation, Jumeirah Vittaveli is truly luxurious.

Jumeirah Vittaveli's accommodation caters for both families and couples, with high levels of privacy both on the beach and over the water.

Jumeirah Vittaveli's two-bedroom Beach Suites are ideal for families as they can accommodate up to six guests.

Sinbad's kids' club at Jumeirah Vittaveli caters for children from the ages of 3 to 12 years and there is even a children's swimming pool. The island also has a Teen Lounge meaning that younger guests will never be bored, with a rotating activity schedule which even features tree planting.

Jumeirah Vittaveli's Talise Spa features treatments from Thai and Balinese massages to crystal healing facials. The island has three restaurants, serving cuisines from Mediterranean to Maldivian, as well as grilled meats and seafood, and also has a bar serving drinks and light snacks - the perfect spot to watch the sunset.

The Maldives is, of course, one of the best places in the world for diving and snorkeling and Jumeirah Vittaveli has its own diving and watersports center. The island offers kayaking, snorkeling, diving and windsurfing. With PADI-certified specialists, guests can explore the underwater world or head off for a sunset fishing trip.


Jumeirah Vittaveli has spacious accommodation both on the beach and over the water, and facing either the sunrise or the sunset.

Location & Directions

South Male Atoll, Maldives

Jumeirah Vittaveli is located in the South Malé Atoll in the Maldives.

When to go

The Maldives has a tropical climate distinguished by two seasons, or monsoons: the dry northeast monsoon from December to March, and the wet southwestern monsoon from May to November, with more strong winds and rain. April is a transitional period noted for clear water and heat. The temperature remains remarkably consistent at around 30°C.

February to April is the hottest period and resorts are almost all operating at capacity during this period. Mid-December to early January comes at even more of a premium due to Christmas and New Year and prices are even higher. Easter and the Italian vacation week in August also attract peak prices at most resorts.

Storms are more likely from May to November, though it’s still warm, skies can be cloudy and the humidity is higher. This is the low season, with fewer people and lower prices, with the exception of August.

Diving is good year-round, although a basic rule is that life on the reef is more varied and visibility better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and from the eastern side of any atoll December to April.

The surfing season runs from March to October, which is when resorts are cheapest.
