Travelers looking to escape the bustle of the city can now take that remote retreat one-step further. Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has introduced an exclusive private island takeover poised to offer jetsetters and their guests a hideaway in the Maldives starting from $130,000 per night with minimum stay of three nights.
The island buyout presents guests with the keys to Furanafushi Island. Guests not only gain exclusive access to the 115-acre island, but also get the added comfort that comes with having more white sand beaches, space, degustation experience, and water sports to themselves.
Guests can take over the 176 villas, including the lavish Two-Bedroom Water Suite. This largest overwater villa on the island can sleep up to four and, best of all, is spread out across two pavilions, so even the closest friends and family can have maximum privacy. The Ocean Pool Villa has a lap pool, hammock and outdoor deck set amidst a private garden.
Upon arrival to Velana International Airport in Male, guests are greeted and escorted by the resort’s representative to continue their 15-minute scenic speedboat journey to reach the resort. The island takeover treats up to 352 guests, including roundtrip transfers from/to the airport, daily breakfast, daily $150 dining credit per person valid in all of the resort’s restaurants and bars and 20 percent off on spa services at Shine Spa for Sheraton. The epitome of the exclusive buyout is the unlimited use of Jalsaa—a multi-faceted private venue with private garden and outdoor pool, most ideal for hosting cocktail receptions or celebratory dinners.
Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has seven restaurant and bars. Aside from the wide array of dining options, amenities include the 24-hour Sheraton Fitness and Shine Spa for Sheraton, set amidst a lush tropical garden facing the Indian Ocean, where guests can indulge in Ayurvedic healing treatments. For those traveling with little ones, the resort has lined up a series of programs through the newly launched “Side by Side Family Programming” or the sustainability initiative for the protection of coral reefs.
