To mark the resort’s fifth anniversary, the Maldives’ exclusive Jumeirah Vittaveli has created a lavish, super-exclusive five-bedroom bolt-hole, the Royal Residence. Spanning more than 3,500 square metres, the host bags the resplendent Sanctuary while family and friends can choose between one of two single-bedroom villas or the two-storey, two-bedroom guest house. All in all, the Royal Residence accommodate up to 14 guests. But should you wish to all socialise together, feel free to avail yourselves of the two private pools and sunken lounge area or bar. Feeling peckish? There is even a dedicated beachside restaurant overlooking the private lagoon headed by a personal chef. If all this indulgence is not enough, and Brogue cannot imagine why it wouldn’t be, then you can of course enjoy the resort’s additional activities including spa treatments, scuba diving and cruises on luxury yachts. Sold? So are we. Now you need only find the $35,000-a-night needed to reserve exclusive use of the Royal Residence.
