Vakkaru Maldives has achieved another milestone after its first year of operation. In the annual awards gala ceremony of the Condé Nast Traveller Middle East Readers’ Choice Awards held in Dubai, the resort was awarded the ‘Favourite Romantic Getaway for International Hotels and Resorts’ Category as voted by the readers of the magazine in the last quarter of 2018.

The Readers’ Choice Awards is recognised globally as a benchmark for excellence in travel and tourism and was launched simultaneously with the magazine. In the Middle East, it is also known as GCC’s premier travel industry awards.

“We are honoured to receive this noteworthy accolade as it reaffirms the resort’s dedication to creating exceptional stay experiences for couples and honeymooners. I want to thank our team who strive to maintain the level of excellence to ensure guest’s satisfaction, also to our guests and partners who have supported Vakkaru Maldives in achieving this award,” said Nicholas Mason, General Manager.

Since opening its door in December 2017, Vakkaru Maldives has been creating unassuming luxury experiences for travellers seeking an intimate getaway in arguably one of the most desirable island destinations on the planet. Vakkaru Maldives is a scenic 30 minutes north of Velana International Airport by seaplane.
