A 40 minute seaplane journey, with blissful views of the archipelago, takes us to the North Ari Atoll, one of the best diving spots in The Maldives and home of the incredibly luxurious resort of Constance Halaveli. As we approach I notice there are no footprints in the pristine white sand. The palms form a perfect fringe along the never-ending deserted beach. It’s stunningly beautiful, incredibly peaceful, and very, very quiet…

We arrive at our villa it all falls in to place. A mini paradise lies within the bigger one. A private infinity pool sits on the deck blending in to the lagoon. The accommodation is stunning with every luxury you could wish for. People rarely leave their villas here. There’s no need to. Over the next few days, other guests appear, mainly in the evening, loved-up honeymooners and newlyweds – many choose to take their vows on the idyllic beach at Halaveli – beach-chic friends, and well-heeled families (Halaveli prides itself on being very child friendly, they have a fantastic kids club).

The perfection of this island, the impeccable service, discretion, privacy and no-holds-barred luxury creates an unpretentious little haven of bliss.

U Spa by Constance

U Spa by Constance is housed half way up the jetty in a clutter of candle-lit, glass-bottomed, water villas and decks.

Facilities include, hot and cold hydro-jet plunge pools, outdoor Jacuzzi, manicure and pedicure suite, a hair treatment station, sauna and steam rooms and a spa shop.

A relaxation deck, with double daybeds and sunset views.A yoga room and state-of-the-art gym are situated on the main island.

The Treatment

‘Skin to Within’ begins with a salt and eucalyptus oil foot scrub, followed by a Tibetan bell ritual for spiritual balance. A blend of coriander, lime and coconut oils are then used for a targeted, acupressure, spine-focused massage to open up the back and get rid of any knots and tension.

A shiatsu head massage and deep lime inhalation completes the treatment. I felt like someone had literally opened my back up and removed the knots – blissful!

Other Treatments

Valmont Anti-Ageing UV Repair Facial – A deeply repairing and regenerating skin treatment to soothe and repair the effects of sun damage.

Signature U-Spa Body Ritual – A total experience with a body scrub customized to your skin type followed by a nurturing wrap and relaxing full body massage.

To Stay

We stayed in a Water Villa sitting above the turquoise lagoon, along the longest jetty in the Maldives. A hallway leads on to a huge, contemporary style, bedroom suite with a lounge area and an impressive Dhoni-shaped high raftered ceiling.

A curved glass wall gives uninterrupted views of the ocean and opens out on to the private deck with infinity pool, outdoor shower, and steps leading down to the lagoon.

To the rear of the hall sits a sandstone bathroom with a monsoon shower and freestanding tub overlooking the ocean. I could easily live here…

Facilities include: Super-king bed, double walk-in wardrobes, own-brand toiletry products, flat screen TV, Mac-mini, Nespresso coffee machine, mini wine fridge and mini bar. Turn-down service with petit fours.

To Eat

Set half way along the Halaveli jetty, Jing is a fine dining restaurant and bar offering a perfect fusion of Asian and European cuisine. Whilst dining on seabass and tiger prawns at our oceanside candlelit table, we watched sharks and rays swim by…

Head to Meeru for laid-back lunches and dinners of fresh seafood, pastas, salads and grills in a barefoot-chic setting.

Jahaz Bar is the main beach bar and serves up sandwiches, snacks and to-die-for cocktails with stunning view of the Indian Ocean.

In-villa dining is also available.
