Male’ Maldives, 18th January 2023 – In celebration of the resort’s 5th anniversary and the day of love, Vakkaru Maldives has curated a dawn-to-dusk programme of its top five extraordinary experiences for those in love.
Guests may start their day at the luxury villa, watching the sunrise as they enjoy a sumptuous floating breakfast in the pool. They can then head to the award-wining Merana Spa for a pampering His & Hers spa treatment.
