Fourth consecutive win at the annual World Travel Award

Baa Atoll, Republic of Maldives, 4 December 2023

Vakkaru Maldives has been crowned the World’s Leading Luxury Honeymoon Resort 2023 at the prestigious 30th Annual World Travel Awards for the fourth consecutive year, in a stunning tribute to its unsurpassed devotion to romantic luxury. This prestigious honor demonstrates the resort’s commitment to provide unique, unforgettable experiences for couples in one of the world’s most enchanting destinations. 

The resort’s isolated position in the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, offers an extraordinary combination of natural beauty, elegant elegance, and personalized service against the spectacular backdrop of the Indian Ocean. Honeymooners looking for next-level pampering will discover their ideal haven in one of the luxurious beach or overwater villas. Imagine waking up to limitless ocean views from your private infinity pool and witnessing beautiful sunsets that paint the sky in vivid hues at nightfall.


If you dare to leave the luxury of your villa, you’ll discover a plethora of fascinating resort experiences, and your butler will be on hand to attend to your every desire, ensuring your honeymoon is a seamless symphony of wonderful moments. Six outdoor restaurants, two bars, and a wine cellar provide a variety of world cuisines in picturesque settings, while the lavish over-water Merana Spa refreshes and calms the body, mind, and soul with an array of decadent experiences. Other romantic eating experiences can be tailored to your preferences, such as on the beach, a quiet sandbank, a luxury yacht, or even in the heart of the jungle and the Organic Garden. Each activity is designed to provide you with unique experiences throughout your stay.

Vakkaru Maldives is not just a honeymooners’ paradise, but also a fantastic location for saying ‘I do’ or renewing your vows. The island sanctuary’s personalized wedding service allows couples to tie the knot in a fairy tale setting, organized by a professional staff that assures every couple can discover the right way to celebrate their union in one of the most breathtaking locations on the planet.

“Receiving this award for the fourth consecutive year is an honor and a reminder of our commitment to providing exceptional experiences. We are dedicated to continuous improvement and innovation, ensuring that every couple’s stay is nothing short of magical,” said Iain McCormack, General Manager of Vakkaru Maldives. “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our guests for their continued support and the World Travel Awards for this prestigious recognition. We look forward to welcoming couples from across the globe and creating more unforgettable honeymoon and wedding experiences.”
