Marriott’s 60+ spacious Villas are thoughtfully designed to offer complete privacy. Each has private decks and pools, dedicated butler service, destination dining experiences like Thai dishes in a treetop restaurant, Japanese Teppanyaki, poolside woodfired pizzas, local Maldivian seafood as well as Sake (with an extensive range of rum cocktails and smoked drinks available as options) or both new and old world wines to pair with meals.

Duplex Overwater Pool Villas
Marriott Resort Maldives stands out as an elegant tropical escape with their Duplex Overwater Pool Villas at Marriott Resort Maldives, known for offering stylish tropical retreats that stand out among overwater bungalows in the Indian Ocean. These spacious two-bedroom abodes are an ideal spot for romantic couples as well as families seeking a secluded yet luxurious escape.
Once you step onto your private deck, it will feel like entering a fantasy island paradise. Azure waters of the lagoon beckon as you relax by your spacious private pool while afternoon sunbathing or reading await.
The decor of these villas draws its inspiration from both their surroundings and Maldivian culture; thatched roofs resemble inverted dhoni boats while slanted rooftop tips evoke white herons dipping their heads into the water. Inside you will find interiors painted in beachy hues accented with lighting that takes its cue from coral reefs of the region.
Beyond your private deck and pool, this resort features numerous amenities to keep you occupied. An overwater gym and open-air yoga pavilion provide daily workout classes; while our signature Spa by JW offers full body pampering.
On the culinary front, this hotel offers five restaurants and three bars to satisfy any palette imaginable, offering everything from classic Maldivian seafood to exotic Thai cuisine on treetop restaurants as well as wood-fired brick oven pizzas and Japanese teppanyaki – with Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Elite or above members receiving 20% off all meals and beverages at all of the hotels’ restaurants!
The private island where this resort resides boasts an amazing natural reef filled with an abundance of sea life for guests to discover and discover. A marine biologist on site oversees its health as well as organizing diving and snorkeling excursions for resort guests. Additional leisure facilities at Aailaa Fiaama Resort include its main pool near Aailaa Fiaama as well as an adults-only infinity pool overlooking the southern tip of the island.
One Bedroom Overwater Pool Villas
One bedroom overwater pool villas at Marriott Resort Maldives provide the ideal blend of space, privacy, and marine life experience. As one of the most coveted overwater rooms, they are simply amazing – popular among guests staying there.
These rooms provide you with all of the same privacy and comfort you’d find in an overwater villa, while offering more of the comforts of home such as separate living area with large sofa and coffee table, free wifi connection and flatscreen television for working purposes.
As an added perk, our one bedroom overwater pool villas come equipped with their own mini kitchens featuring refrigerator, sink and microwave; additionally, there’s also a small balcony featuring a daybed – ideal for enjoying sunrises and sunsets in peace!
Bathroom amenities in this suite include a luxurious black stone tub – large enough for two, an ample shower with good pressure and a window overlooking the reef below. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers make use easy while being brand free and committed to sustainability – great touches!
One thing to keep in mind with Maldivian rooms is that while you may have the option of adding meal plans onto your room rate, they will cost more due to 10% service charge and 12% GST taxes that apply. Therefore, it’s wise to arrive with an open budget in mind and then determine which meal plans you wish to purchase upon arriving at your destination.
At this hotel, overwater villas can be booked using Marriott Bonvoy points and there’s great availability at this time. Just keep in mind that Marriott recently increased their award rates for stays here – however I have found you can typically book one during off-peak times for around 50,000 points per night (although rates may change regularly).
Beachfront Pool Villas
Maldives is one of the most romantic beach vacation spots available, thanks to its crystal-clear waters, beautiful beaches and laidback tropical atmosphere that are perfect for newlyweds or couples seeking peace and serenity. But be warned: long flights and high costs could deter many travellers who may only visit once in their lifetimes.
At the new Marriott Maldives resort, they’ve created something truly revolutionary: beach pool villas! As the only property in Maldives offering these opulent beach-front residences with all their exotic style and luxury amenities; plus all bookable with Marriott points! This resort’s new offerings make this revolutionary property stand out.
These beach villas on Vagaru offer the ideal blend of a luxury tropical escape and family-friendly comfort, featuring an infinity pool that blends seamlessly into the sea surrounded by lush tropical gardens and a spacious sundeck.
Inside the villa you will find a living area featuring a comfortable couch and flatscreen TV, along with either a ground-floor king bed or mezzanine king bed – each level offering stunning water and beach views as well as luxurious bathrooms with tub/showers on both levels.
There is also a minibar, coffee/tea maker, and large private terrace with outdoor seating that gives direct access to the beach and lagoon, making it easier than ever to take a dip or stroll towards it for some snorkeling!
At Maldives Resort & Spa, its primary attraction is undoubtedly its breathtaking beach and lagoon; however, other notable amenities include an extensive spa, casual gourmet restaurants, casual gourmet bar-b-queing terrace dining experience as well as Maldives only underground club (with resident DJ). When jumping off your terrace into the sea from your terrace you will see turtles swimming nearby while close enough for you to touch eagle rays – making for an unforgettable momentous memory that you will treasure always.
