Imagine having your own 5-acre playground in a dazzling and undisturbed UNESCO ocean territory, which is off limits to everyone but you. That’s Voavah, the world’s first exclusive-use UNESCO hideaway – a gorgeous 7-bedroom island resort in the Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve that offers limitless island living to its guests: somewhere to retreat, explore, connect, celebrate and dream with your eyes open.
Voavah days revolve around the double-storey Beach House and adjacent powder white sands, crystal lagoon and vibrant reef. Laze in the shady open-air lounge. Dive the pristine waters. Swim with reef sharks, kaleidoscopic fish and turtles. Harmonise at The Ocean of Consciousness Spa. Celebrate in style with a moonlit banquet or pool party. Or hop on Voavah Summer, your private luxury yacht, and explore your territory: protected Baathala to the North; manta hotspot Hanifaru to the South; secluded sandbanks to the East or float West into blissful oblivion – and a breathtaking Baa Atoll sunset…
Whether you’re with family, friends or colleagues – no one is watching and anything is possible…
