A private island retreat located in the Raa Atoll at the northern edge of the Maldives, Alila Kothaifaru Maldives is an all-pool-villa resort situated in a relatively untouched corner of the archipelago renowned for its abundant marine life.
As one of the deeper atolls in the archipelago, the Raa Atoll offers plenty of snorkelling and diving options, and the chance to spot manta rays and sharks. The resort additionally offers easy access to Vaadhoo Island, one of the best places to witness the ‘Sea of Stars’ phenomenon, where the sea sparkles due to bioluminescent plankton.
Alila Kothaifaru Maldives offers 80 pool villas: 44 are dotted along the beach and 36 are perched over water with direct access to the sea, each of which has a private pool. We love the look of the Sunrise Beach Villas, which offer early birds knockout views to start their day alongside easy access to the resort’s main facilities including infinity pool, Play Alila kids’ club, Mirus Bar, and Seasalt restaurant, where signature salt-baked fish dishes await.
