Whether it is your honeymoon, anniversary or simply a break away together, there are few places we’d recommend more than Villa Kulhi in the Maldives. Your own personal retreat perched above the turquoise lagoon, this idyllic water villa offers everything you need and more.

The villa is located in the Baros Resort, a mere 25-minute speedboat ride from Mali, accessed by a wooden walkway that extends over the water to the villa’s front door. Every direction you look, there are powdery white-sand beaches and unbeatable views over the blue-azure of the Indian Ocean, and you can take a dip at any time you choose with direct access from your bungalow. Guests can enjoy all the peace and tranquillity of this serene private villa with all the amenities of a fantastic resort nearby. There is also a villa host available to you, ensuring your entire trip meets every expectation you have!

Inside, Villa Kulhi offers a private world of cosy furnishings and plush amenities, with thoughtful touches that blend with modern comforts. The inviting king-size bed is positioned so you can enjoy the breath-taking views from under the covers, or you can gaze out to the horizon from the luxurious bathtub in the next-door bathroom! Every corner you turn, there is a new delightful indulgence, offering every creature comfort and with every detail designed to give you the memories of a lifetime. With space to relax, read and take time for yourselves, this is the perfect place for couples needing some time away together.

Outside, the villa’s wide timber deck lets you absorb the endless ocean views, with a canopied daybed and sun loungers so you can enjoy long hours of relaxation. The sounds of the ocean surround you, and the vibrant colours of sea life team beneath you in the water. Evenings present spectacular sunsets with the sky lighting up on the horizon, transforming into a light show of stars which can accompany you through the rest of the night as you visit the resort restaurants or dine al-fresco on the sand; the whole experience is truly magical. There is truly something for everyone at the beautiful Villa Kulhi.

The tropical paradise that makes up the Maldives truly must be seen to be believed. Crystal-clear lagoons, turquoise sea, white sand and the dappled shade of coconut palms make up this breath-taking landscape, with a series of idyllic islands desperate to be explored.

Villa Kulhi is located on the island of Baros, in the southern reaches of the North Malé Atoll. Reached by a rapid 25-minute speedboat ride from the international airport in Mali, it only takes moments once you land to reach your tropical haven! The villa itself can be found floating above a blue lagoon, accessed by a wooden walkway that extends over the ocean to the villa’s front door. Views stretch out in every direction from the villa, with the landscape changing with the light of the day, from the morning glow of the sun on the glassy ocean surface to the kaleidoscope of colours that light up the horizon at night, making way for a light show of stars.

The Baros Resort presents a concoction of incredible facilities, restaurants and holiday luxuries, nestled amongst outstanding nature. White sandy beaches lead you to the ocean with an array of water sports on offer, whilst tropical trees frame the entrance to a luxury spa and an elegant overwater infinity pool stretches out into the ocean for guests to indulge in. Whether you want to swim with turtles, head out on sailing expeditions or pamper yourself with champagne cruises and destination dining, there is something for everyone. The villa itself offers you peace and privacy, whilst the resort provides all the luxuries you deserve.

For a more active relaxation, there is a 24/7 fitness centre, water sports, snorkelling and a five-star PADI Dive Centre with options for beginners and experienced divers alike. After a balanced day of adventure and relaxation, the resorts three restaurants and two bars offer the perfect end to a day, with a spot for every occasion. Whether you are looking for time together away from a busy day to day schedules, celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon, or even looking for a special place for an unforgettable proposal, Villa Kulhi is the perfect place.

Today, we're one of the most loved Maldives resorts, and we're excited to show you what makes us so special.
