Vakkaru Maldives wins Hideaways magazine’s Newcomer of the Year award
Vakkaru Maldives has received the Newcomer of the Year award from the highly‐respected Hideaways Publication House.
In conjunction with ITB 2018, which concluded early this month, Hideaways Publication House organised their Annual Awards ceremony in Berlin. Attended by the elite of the travel trade industry in Germany and worldwide, along with high net‐worth customers, Hideaways awarded Vakkaru Maldives with the “Newcomer of the Year” award for 2018.
This prestigious award comes less than after the opening of Vakkaru Maldives.
Located in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll and accessible by a 25-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport, Vakkaru welcomed the first group of guests late December.
A secluded tropical island resort blessed with timeless ocean views, white sandy beaches and nurtured by nature, Vakkaru offers guests a holistic approach to unassuming luxury and unforgettable experiences.
Drawing on the rich traditions of the locale, design elements are focused on traditional Maldivian style and fused with the finest natural elements. The result is the creation of amazing spaces for guests to connect with each other and the environment around them.

An indulgent selection of dining choices await guests in four restaurants and two bars, with several ingredients hand-picked from the island’s very own organic farm.
The beachfront Amaany restaurant specialises in international cuisine, and serves breakfast and dinner. Isoletta overlooks the garden and specialises in Italian cuisine, while Vakku is a beach restaurant that specialises in international cuisine and serves dinner.
