OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI, Maldives
The opening of a resort with its own ice-skating rink would be big news anywhere, but in the Maldives it’s positively mind-blowing. That said, where this sparkling new resort – launched in December 2020 – really stands out is with its jaw-dropping overwater spa offering guests the chance to rejuvenate through treatments using aromatic coconut oil produced on the island itself, and through ancient Ayurvedic healing techniques ideal for those who need a reset and an escape from the modern world.
Wellbeing and Activities
Open-air yoga means you’ll be caressed by balmy Indian Ocean breezes while you stretch your weary limbs, while for those who want to keep up their fitness or instil in themselves new habits, OZEN includes in its package one complimentary personal-training session along with a whole array of classes, including circuit-training on the beach. Windsurfing, SUP paddle-boarding, kayaking and other non-motorised water sports are all on offer too, and you can grab a snorkel, mask and flippers any time you’re in the mood to check out the magical marine life that inhabits these waters. Then there are the resort’s own bikes for exploring the island at your own pace, while junior guests get a Treasure Trail to discover local plant- and wildlife while dressed up as pirates.
Space and Privacy
OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI is tucked away in a corner of the South Malé Atoll – far from anything yet just a zippy 20-minute luxury catamaran or speedboat ride from the international airport. Utter seclusion is assured in its 90 villas and suites, all of which have their own pool and direct beach or lagoon access: choose from overwater or beachfront settings. The seven lavish Private Ocean Reserves have both private waterslides into the ocean and dedicated jetties for absolute privacy. Alternatively, snag yourself the resort’s 25m superyacht for the ultimate in getting away from it all!
A Natural Aesthetic
Uber-luxe it may be, but OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI has also been cunningly designed to embrace the island’s raw tropical beauty both through its architecture and its interior design. Think thatched roofs, garden pools, cascading walls, rich, rainforest-green marble in pools, stone tiles and handwoven wallpapers for a back-to-nature feel.
Everything is taken care of with the OZEN’s Reserve Plan, which covers dining and premium-brand drinks, activities and adventures, 60-minute spa treatments (two per person for a 6- to 9-night stay), the kids’ club with its family pool, and the indoor-outdoor Teen Lounge. You even get your own Hiyani or ‘shadow’ – a butler who will tend to your every need around the clock!
Good to Know
You’ll be welcomed at the airport by a member of the resort team and escorted to its private lounge for a welcome drink and cold towel while awaiting your luxury transfer. All OZEN resorts have enhanced health and safety measures in line with current guidelines.
