Vakaru, tucked away in a remote corner in South Ari Atoll, is 90
kilometres from Male International Airport. Your holiday really
begins as the seaplane takes off from the airport lagoon. The short
35-minute flight offers a breathtaking aerial view of the atolls,
the islands and countless reefs glistening like gems in a sea of
deep blue velvet.
Most of the 50 on the island are individual bungalows, all surrounded
by the lush tropical vegetation in all its natural splendour. Spread
out around the island offering complete privacy, all face the beach.
Convenient family accommodation is provided by opening up the interconnecting
doors between semi-detached bungalows, especially designed for the
purpose. Cool tiled floor offers welcome respite after a relaxing
day in the sun and the sea. Colourful tropical patterns on the drapery
add a touch of colour to the interiors. Large glass doors facing

and your own area of the beach. In keeping with the simplicity of

choice and allows stargazers to have a bath under the open sky.
