Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, a stunning sanctuary
Located in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll of the Maldives, 400 km south of the capital city of Malé, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is situated in a unique position of extraordinary beauty surrounded by unspoiled coral reefs, 10 kilometres from the nearest island. Jumeirah Dhevanafushi resort has a unique two island concept, with the main island occupying an area of 44,000m² and the ‘Ocean Pearls’, an exclusive collection of overwater villas, located 850 metres from the main island, right in the heart of the ocean and surrounded by pure coral reefs.
An exclusive ‘two-resort island’ design
Inspired by Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, one of the most important and influential Asian architects of the twentieth century, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi‘s design was done by Bangkok-based Blink Design Group.
The concept of the designers was to create an exclusive ‘two-resort island’ reflecting boutique escape luxury, private island spirit, haute couture, a discreet and glamorous ambience, personalised and thoughtful service, privacy and exclusivity.
Translating into “unique island”, Dhevanafushi takes the essence of the Maldives to create new and distinctive experiences for guests. It recognises the individuality of luxury travellers and the importance of personal experiences. The uniqueness of every guest is reflected in the originality and space of the interior design.
