Vakkaru Maldives ends another year on a high with multiple  wins at the 28th World Travel Awards 2021. The private island sanctuary, which only opened  doors in 2017, scooped three prestigious titles this year. For the second year in a row, it was  crowned the Indian Ocean’s Leading Resort. Industry experts and guests also voted again  for the sprawling signature four-bedroom Vakkaru Over Water Residence as the Maldives  Leading Hotel Suite and the Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel Suite. 
Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards acknowledges, rewards and celebrates excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. With  winners in each category determined by travel and tourism industry professionals and  everyday travellers, it is the ultimate stamp of industry excellence. 
These new honours validate the world-class facilities and signature hospitality that Vakkaru  Maldives offers its guests and reinforce its position as one of the most exciting resorts in the  Maldives and the Indian Ocean. The resort has set itself apart with innovative hospitality  concepts and memorable guest experiences, such as the launch of “Vakkare” last year. This  enhanced service standard focuses on providing the utmost care in all its forms, with a  commitment from all members of the Vakkaru team to make a sincere and creative effort to  surpass guest expectations.  
Additionally, vacationers can also enjoy a range of unparalleled experiences. These range  from signature wellness treatments for the body, mind and soul in the luxurious overwater  Merana spa and sunrise yoga sessions on the pristine white sand beach to private tennis  lessons with some of the world’s top players and the finest gourmet experiences to be had in  the Maldives. With its enviable location in Baa Atoll, named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve  in 2011, the luxury resort also offers some of the Indian Ocean’s best bluewater  experiences, from scuba diving and snorkelling to watersports. 
Couples embarking on a life journey together can enjoy several exceptionally romantic  experiences at this private water retreat. These include exclusive night-time use of the spa,  where indulgent treatments are followed by a healthy and nutritious dinner underneath the starry skies. Or, private excursions to a nearby sandbank to enjoy Champagne and canapés  as they admire another spectacular Indian Ocean sunset.  
With the double title of “Maldives Leading Hotel Suite” and “Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel  Suite”, the luxurious Vakkaru Over Water Residence is well suited to families or a group of  friends looking to enjoy the ultimate holiday in complete privacy. Drawing on the rich  traditions of Maldivian style, it is one of the largest overwater residences in the country. And  located at the end of the water villa jetty, it guarantees unobstructed views of the ocean’s  Fifty Shades of Blue and the spectacular sunsets. The two-storey residence, spread over  971 square metres, has its own infinity pool and comes with a dedicated chef. Inside the  sprawling space are four bedrooms and perfectly fitted bathrooms with spacious tubs and  private steam rooms. Outside, the vast, versatile terrace includes a dining area, multiple  relaxation spaces, a private spa pavilion and a staircase that leads directly to the sea. Other thoughtful guest benefits include VIP passage through Malé’s Velana International  Airport. In addition, the on-call team of butlers facilitate numerous in-resort and in-villa  privileges on the island, from complimentary sundowners and private beach barbecues to  family film nights with unlimited popcorn, candyfloss and ice cream, and celebratory  afternoon teas. 
Speaking about the resort’s latest accolades, Iain McCormack, General Manager, Vakkaru  Maldives, said: “This recognition for the second year in succession is a wonderful honour.  These awards are a testament to the tireless efforts of all Vakkaru team members to deliver  our brand of inspirational hospitality and exceptional service to every guest. There is no  greater reward for us than knowing that we were able to exceed guest expectations. These  important wins will encourage us to continue working with even more enthusiasm to offer our  guests extraordinary and memorable experiences at our timeless sanctuary.”
