Viceroy Maldives, Shaviyani Atoll, Maldives

A constellation of islands lay in the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, where the last true vision of paradise can be found. Less than an hour’s flight from Malé, up to The Maldives‘ uncharted northern edge, beckons an island of singular beauty. Over 17 acres of palm-edged, pristine sand stands Viceroy Maldives, where 61 villas encircle a lagoon of startling blue. Here, seclusion and rejuvenation are realized within a world of total luxury.

A true haven for the discerning adventurer, Viceroy Maldives provides innovative levels of seclusion and luxury set within a spectacular locale. The resort leaves no detail unanswered; with Viceroy’s unparalleled service complementing Yabu Pushelberg’s perfectly designed elemental interiors and carefully crafted lounge areas. Five dining venues, including the alluring, Middle Eastern-inspired décor of the central Treehouse restaurant, offer everything from casual beachside cuisine, Pan Asian and European fare to intimate fine dining experience with a wine cellar and a private chef‘s table.

The award-winning interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg created the interiors of Viceroy Maldives by drawing inspiration from the islands’ natural beauty and culture, utilizing only the necessary elements in order to avoid competition with the unsurpassed location. Using naturally rustic materials and patterns in a modern way allows the resort to exude sophistication without feeling ostentatious.

From the moment guests arrive on property by seaplane and are transported to their villas by golf cart, they will feel an ultimate sense of calm. Whether lounging in an oversized daybed overlooking the lagoon, socializing beachside at the resort‘s infinity pool, or relaxing with children in the playful Kids‘ Zone, Viceroy Maldives exceeds the expectations of even the most discerning guest.

The Maldives resort of Vagaru is not just a haven for relaxation; the island provides a wealth of activities from the expansive water sports centre to world-class diving, snorkelling or deep sea fishing excursions. Guests can enjoy the ocean’s wildlife from the resort‘s house reef or on the open sea while young explorers investigate their very own Kids’ Zone.

Location and Transfers

Viceroy Maldives is located in Shaviyani Atoll, 192 km from the capital island of Malé and the International Airport. On the Maldives‘ uncharted northern edge, the resort is located on the private island of Vagaru, over 17 acres of palm trees and pristine sand encircling a blue lagoon. Access to Vagaru is easily accommodated via seaplane, less than an hour‘s flight from the main island of Malé.

Accommodation

The resort is comprised of 61 Villas with 32 over the water and 29 on the beach. Each Villa is designed with the intent to have maximum privacy, either on the lagoon or on the beach by providing ample distance between each of the villas to maintain intimacy and space for the guests. The resort’s 61 villas resemble the hull of an inverted Maldivian “dhoni” (a traditional fishing boat) and occupy the vast areas on the beach and lagoon.

Beach Villas – cloistered on the water’s edge, the Beach Villas offer generous living spaces surrounded by a lush screen of greenery. Past the shower and the tub in the bedroom’s spacious ensuite bathroom, discover a door that opens out to the villa’s private garden. The intimate garden area holds an outdoor shower and oversized plunge pool on the sundeck, leading directly onto the soft sand of the beach or up to the open spaces of the living area

Deluxe Beach Villas – nestled between lush gardens and the soft sand of the island’s edge lay the Deluxe Beach Villas, with private plunge pools and incredible views beyond the windows of the soaring interiors. Each of the Deluxe Beach Villas have floor to ceiling windows, soaring ceilings that rise above the master bedroom, spacious living room and ensuite bathroom with its own outdoor shower nestled in a private garden. The villa has a second floor loft, where the daybed provides additional space for lounging or just soaking in the panoramic views. Adjoining the master bedroom is a second bedroom with two twin beds and an attached bathroom, ideal for families and couples alike

Water Villas – live suspended over the lagoon in a spacious Water Villa, each positioned a considerable distance from neighbours. Overlooking the soothing lagoon views, the villas are expansive and full of light while retaining an intimate feel. From the tiered deck, choose to relax in the private plunge pool or dive off into the lagoon’s seductive blue waters

Deluxe Water Villas – perched atop the lagoon, enjoy the bright spaciousness and privacy of the Deluxe Water Villas. From the deck, dip into the private plunge pool or just relax, savouring the sweeping views. The generous spaces in the two-storey Deluxe Water Villas allow for personalized living, and feature a second-floor loft with convertible furnishings that provide a relaxing spot on a lazy afternoon to enjoy the beauty of the sun setting into the Indian Ocean

Royal Villa – for guests seeking the very best that the Maldives has to offer, the Viceroy’s three bedroom Royal Villa is the only option, the largest of its kind in the Maldives—where absolute privacy combines with the ultimate in spaciousness and amenities. The generous living room overlooks the lagoon through floor-to-ceiling windows, and the split-level deck holds a 60 sqm plunge pool just steps from the water. The Villa’s living area is designed for entertaining, with the dining room and fully stocked bar connecting the media lounge and a games room with a champion-sized pool table. Guests in the lower level’s two bedrooms can easily dip in the lagoon or the private plunge Jacuzzi off their individual decks, each furnished with sun loungers and an outdoor shower. Designed for unparalleled seclusion and luxury, the master suite is designed for privacy and savouring the singular views of sunrise and sunset over the lagoon and the Indian Ocean

Dining

Vista – from sunrise through to the day’s end, guests can soak up the view of the pool and lagoon while enjoying a relaxed dining experience. Every day begins with an abundance of choices for breakfast, providing guests with both Western and Asian selections. For dinner, flavours of the East and West are prepared and presented in a contemporary style, whilst preserving the authentic flavours of each origin

Cerchio & AOC – poised above Vista, the signature restaurant, Cerchio, is ideal for those looking for a quiet evening to celebrate a special occasion or a romantic candle-lit dinner. Food prepared is a modern interpretation of fine Italian cuisine inspired by preservation of the authentic flavours of home style cooking, enhanced by a fine selection of Italian and international wines

At the Wine Cellar, AOC, guests can find a wide spectrum of wines to accommodate taste, price, and occasion

Anguru – for those who can’t bear to leave the water’s edge, the Pool Bar & Grill provides ample choice for daytime dining. Private cabanas are at guests’ disposal and can be reserved fully stocked with a pre-set selection of beverages, a perfect way to spend the day lounging and overlooking the lagoon. As the sun sets, the freshest seafood and fine cuts are prepared to guests’ tastes straight from the outdoor grill

Treehouse – The Treehouse lures guests with its exotic flavours of the Middle East and features a selection of hot or cold mezzes from the region. The Treehouse has an ideal location at the island’s southernmost tip; generous cushions and loungers are artfully placed to allow guests to choose an intimate or livelier setting

In-Villa Dining – at any hour of the day or night, a selection of small plates, snacks and entrees can be brought to the villa’s deck or living area. Special menus can also be planned for intimate dinner served in the celebrated Viceroy style, on the guest’s deck, on the beach, or on a deserted island in the Indian Ocean

Vai – the Resort’s Spa Café will offer an organic and fresh approach to spa cuisine. Accommodating guests who have chosen to indulge in the holistic, regenerating benefits of the extensive spa therapies, Vai focuses on healthy cuisine, providing optimal nutrition incorporating flavours of the sub-continent and the west. Fresh juices plus the home-grown wheatgrass juice station ensure that spa guests start the day in a cleansing and detoxifying way

Sublime Travel are holders of Civil Aviation Authority ATOL License No 9557, which will ensure that your money is refunded or you are repatriated in the unlikely event of our insolvency. A binding contract is only entered into when we issue a confirmation invoice after we have received your completed booking form and deposit. By signing the booking form and making a booking you accept that you have the authority to bind all members of your party to those terms and conditions. It is essential that you check the travel details on the confirmation invoice and inform us immediately of any errors.

All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate.

2. PAYMENT FOR YOUR HOLIDAY

A non-refundable deposit of £500 or 10% (whichever is greater) per person is required at the time of booking. We reserve the right to vary the deposit as appropriate. The balance is due 10 weeks prior to departure. If the booking is made less than 10 weeks before departure, the full amount is due on booking. If the balance is not paid on time, we shall cancel your booking and retain your deposit. Final travel documents will usually be sent out approximately 2 weeks before departure. All money paid to a travel agent will be held by the agent on our behalf. Payment must be in the currency of the invoice and you are responsible for bank charges.

3. INFORMATION

Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the information on our website is as accurate as possible and is updated on a regular basis, we reserve the right to make changes to the website and any information it contains. You will be informed of any material changes before booking. 

4. AMENDMENT AND CANCELLATION BY YOU

(A) AMENDMENT

We will do our best to assist you in altering your arrangements after booking but cannot guarantee this will be possible. If alterations can be made you will be responsible for all extra charges and costs and we will charge £50 per person administration fee, plus any applicable charges levied by our suppliers. We also reserve the right to treat any amendment less than 10 weeks prior to departure as a cancellation and apply the cancellation charges set out below. If you are prevented from taking your holiday for reasons beyond your control, you may transfer your booking to a person acceptable to us and who fulfils any conditions that may apply to the holiday. Any replacement accepted by us will be bound by this contract and will be jointly and severally responsible with you for payment. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £50 per person for such a transfer; in addition, airlines may also impose a re-booking fee.

5. AMENDMENT AND CANCELLATION BY US

(A) AMENDMENTS

It is occasionally necessary for us to make changes to advertised products and services as described in Clause 3 and we reserve the right to make those changes. In exceptional circumstances we may have to modify your holiday after booking.  If the change is minor, we will do our best to notify you in advance but are not obliged to do so and no compensation is payable. If the change is material (for example, a change of flight time by more than 12 hours, change of destination or to a lower standard of accommodation), we will notify you as soon as practically possible and offer you the choice of (i) accepting alternative arrangements or (ii) arranging an alternative holiday with us or (iii) cancelling your holiday. Whichever option you choose we will pay you compensation unless the change has been caused by force majeure or low bookings as defined below.

This does not apply to minor changes in your accommodation, itinerary or transportation.

(C) CANCELLATION BY US

Whilst we hope we will never have to cancel your holiday, this does very occasionally happen and we reserve the right to do so.

(D) FORCE MAJEURE

Compensation or refunds will not be payable in any cases where an amendment, change or cancellation is due to “force majeure”, being unusual or unforeseeable events or circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which neither we nor our suppliers could avoid. These include, but are not limited to, war, threat of war, riot, civil disturbance or strife, terrorist activity (actual or threatened), industrial disputes, technical or maintenance problems with transport, machinery or equipment, power failure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood, drought, adverse weather conditions, levels of water in rivers, closure of airports, changes of schedules or operational decisions of transport providers.

(E) LOW BOOKINGS

Compensation is not payable if a holiday or tour does not take place because a required minimum number of passengers to enable the holiday or tour to take place has not been reached and you were informed of that requirement at the time of booking.

6. PRICES

All prices advertised or quoted are subject to change, up or down, until the booking is concluded. After that, we will only increase the price in limited circumstances to reflect increases in transportation costs (including fuel and airfares), dues, taxes (including VAT), fees chargeable for services (including landing taxes and embarkation and disembarkation and security fees at airports), Government action or exchange rate variation. If the surcharge would increase the cost of your holiday by 10% or more, you may cancel and receive a full refund (except insurance premiums). We will, in any event, absorb the first 2% of any increase. No surcharges will be made within 30 days of departure. As we have a very diverse range of products purchased at different times, we will inform you of the purchasing exchange rate if any surcharge is due to adverse currency fluctuation.

7. OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU

We take care to ensure that all involved in the preparation and supply of your holiday maintain the highest standards.

(a) We will pay reasonable compensation (subject to (c) below) if the product supplied to you is not of the standard described or contracted for by you. This compensation will be limited (except in the case of death or injury) to no more than three times the holiday cost attributable to the complaint.

(b) If you suffer death or personal injury as a result of any part of your holiday contract, we will (subject to (c) below) accept responsibility and will pay compensation. We incorporate into this contract and claim to the benefit of any limitation of liability provided for in any international treaty or convention which governs any part of your holiday arrangements, including but not limited to, air, sea, and rail travel and hotel accommodation.

(c) Our liability to you does not apply if you or any member of your group is at fault; if the failure is the fault of someone else not connected with providing the services which form part of our holiday contract with you; the failure is due to any unusual or unexpected circumstances beyond our control, which we could not have avoided even if we had used all care possible, or the failure is due to any event which we or the supplier of any service could not help, expect or prevent.

(d) Any acceptance of liability is subject to you agreeing to assign to us your rights against any third party responsible for the events leading to your claim and to you affording us all necessary assistance in pursuing that claim.

8. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO US

(a) If you have any complaint or problem whilst on holiday you must inform us, our representatives or the supplier as soon as possible to give us the maximum opportunity to rectify it. It is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday and then write a letter of complaint on return. Any unresolved complaints must be notified to us in writing within 30 days of your return.

(b) It is your responsibility to ensure that all necessary passport, visa, vaccination and other health documents are in order.  We will provide you with a list of relevant requirements.

(c) It is your responsibility to arrange suitable personal travel insurance cover. We will provide you with details of a suitable policy.  If you decide not to take this, you must provide us with details of your own cover before departure. We reserve the right not to issue travel documents in the absence of this information.

9. SPECIAL REQUESTS

Whilst we will endeavor to comply with any special requests such as airline seating, diets, room requirements, we can only do so on a “goodwill” basis. As these are usually only provided at the discretion of the relevant supplier, we cannot guarantee availability and cannot be held responsible if they are not provided.

10. EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES

We are only responsible for excursions and activities sold by us and which form part of your holiday contract.

11. JURISDICTION

This contract is governed by English Law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
