Chaaya Island Dhonveli details

Right on the beach and surrounded by greenery, Chaaya Island is your typical Maldivian paradise.

With traditional wooden huts dotted among lush gardens and white sands, this hotel really makes the most of its island setting. The whole place looks out over a long stretch of private beach, which means you’re only ever seconds from the Indian Ocean.

With that in mind, it’s no surprise scuba diving tops the to-do list here. The hotel has its own dive centre, and there’s also snorkelling on offer. Back on dry land, you’ve got the likes of tennis and badminton.

If you just want to take it easy, though, pick a spot by the pool. It’s huge, and weaves its way past tall palms and colourful blooms. Cushioned loungers line up along spacious terraces, while an open-air snack bar completes the scene.

For more in the way of food and drink, there are two restaurants to choose from. The buffet one offers up dishes from all over the world, while the à la carte serves a mix of local and international fare, with plenty in the way of fresh fish and seafood on the menu. Pick a table out on the terrace, and you can enjoy great sea views while you eat.

When it comes to accommodation, you’ve got the option of a room or a bungalow. Both are dressed in sophisticated neutrals, with wooden ceilings adding a tropical vibe. In-room extras come in the form of air-conditioning and satellite TVs. Beach bungalows are set right on the sand, while water bungalows are set over the sea and come with a private whirlpool bath.
