As one of the most generous all-inclusive resorts in the Maldives (hello, 80-bottle wine wall), it’s no surprise Pullman Maldives Maamutaa is one of the best-loved Luxury Escapes of all time.
The stunning Maamutaa Island is 18 hectares of pure paradise. At its heart is a natural lake fringed with tropical foliage, all surrounded by pristine white beaches and azure lagoon. It’s also home to one of the most sought-after all-inclusive resorts in the Maldives – Pullman Maldives Maamutaa.
So what makes this resort stand out from the rest? We're talking unlimited dining, an 80-bottle wine wall and complimentary minibar refills daily: and that's just the start.
Read on to discover what to expect from a stay here.
Pullman Maldives Resort
Pamper yourself with a visit to the spa, which offers massages, body treatments, and facials. After dipping into one of the 2 outdoor swimming pools, you can spend some time at the private beach. Additional amenities at this hotel include complimentary wireless internet access, concierge services, and an arcade/game room.
Expect villa luxury with next-level views
From the leafy gardens of the Beach Villas to infinity pools suspended over the lagoon in the overwater villas, every accommodation option here offers vistas to soothe the soul – but perhaps the most showstopping views of all go to the Aqua Villas.
Pullman Maldives Maamutaa is the first ever luxury Maldives resort to offer these two underwater bedrooms. Each split-level villa features a submerged bedroom with a full-size glass wall, so you can wake to see marine life and schools of tropical fish darting amid the coral (think scuba diving, without the tank). As if that's not enough, the second bedroom is suspended over the water with endless views over the Indian Ocean – so magic is guaranteed, whether you take the deep dive or keep your head above water.
Expect generous all-inclusive benefits
Choose the all-inclusive package and you can expect to be spoiled round-the-clock, with unlimited dining, free-flow drinks (including premium pours and a mega 80-bottle wine wall to choose from) and a complimentary minibar, replenished twice daily. This is easily one of the Maldives' most generous all-inclusive offerings: select extended stays also include excursions and activities, like guided snorkelling, sunset cruises and massages at The Pullman Spa.
Street food, gourmet vegetarian, Italian and tapas is all on the menu across three restaurants, so there's no chance of getting bored. Highlights are Phat Chameleon, the Maldives' first organic, vegan restaurant set in an organic veggie garden, and Saffron Affair, where you can enjoy tapas and drinks beneath the stars while lounging on an overwater net.
Expect adventures of a lifetime
The resort invites guests to lean into paradise with PADI-certified scuba diving, guided snorkelling, dolphin cruises and even mermaid classes all on offer (one to write home about). There's plenty to experience, from the relaxing to the active: simulated golf, tennis, Zumba, aqua aerobics and yoga, including aerial and floating yoga, are on hand for those who like their island escape a little more energetic. A guided nature walk or marine biologist tour is the perfect way to acquaint yourself with the island's natural beauty.
Expect ultimate relaxation
Feel the worries of the world melt away as you relax at the tranquil Pullman Spa by Phytomer. The open-sided spa sits over a serene blue lagoon, creating the perfect atmosphere for evoking some inner peace. The friendly and very skilled team will unravel your knots, knead your stress away and soothe your soul with a selection of divine massages, facials, beauty treatments and spiritual rituals.
The spa utilises natural, eco-friendly and sustainable products to ensure its holistic treatments are aligned with maintaining the health of this beautiful paradise. You’ll never want your pampering to end.
Expect jaw-dropping natural beauty and wildlife
Maamutaa Island is a unique little slice of heaven with its crystal-clear water, soft-sanded tropical shores, thriving jungle, blissful natural lake and five unique biomes full of life. The resort is dedicated to eco-friendly and sustainable practices as part of the Planet21 program, so you can enjoy the island’s spectacular ecosystem knowing it’s being taken care of. Consequently, you’ll be able to spot beautiful flora, native birds, mammals and reptiles on a nature walk, or spot turtles, dolphins, sharks, whale sharks, colourful tropical fish and more on a guided marine biologist experience.
