Info about the resort
The name of this resort says it all. A paradise surrounded by crystal clear waters, this island is located a convenient 20 minute speedboat ride from the airport. Paradise is our second largest resort and offers both beachside and water villa accommodation choices. It’s a large island filled with activity and relaxation options and is wonderful for divers with families.
Paradise Island features 220 Superior Beach Bungalows, 40 Water Villas, 16 Haven Villas, 4 Haven Suites and 2 Ocean Suites. The Superior Beach Bungalows are all facing out towards to tranquil lagoon so that you are never more than a few steps away from the shore! If you prefer sleeping over the water, the Water Villas, Haven villas and suites are built on stilts over the peaceful lagoon with direct access to the ocean.
In this resort, you’ll be spoilt for choice each mealtime! As well as the main restaurant, which offers a wide variety of European and Asian fusion cuisine, the island also boasts Italian, Japanese and seafood restaurants. For those who fancy kicking back after a hard day’s dive, Paradise Bar is the perfect place to swap diving tales.
When you’re not diving, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the water at Paradise Island. Why not head over to the water sports hut and try your hand at catamaran sailing? If you’re up for an adrenaline rush, have a ride on a banana boat or give wakeboarding a go! If you feel like getting out of the sun, our indoor badminton and squash courts await you along with our modern gymnasium, snooker and table tennis tables.
For those who prefer to unwind, our award-winning Araamu Spa is simply heaven. Further afield, excursions offer a chance to try the traditional skill of bottom line fishing. A cruise to encounter dolphins in their natural habitat or to explore a local island are both ways to see the true beauty of the Maldives.
