The 125 beach and over water villas overlook rows of coconut trees and the turquoise waters. With one to four-bedroom options, Vakkaru is equally adept at handling an intimate couples retreat, or larger groups of family and friends.
As the plankton blooms from May to November, they attract feeding manta rays and whale sharks to the area. From manta ray snorkeling to diving, the island offers an abundance of acquatic activities. For a more relaxing day, the over water Menara Spa features facial and body treatments, along with yoga to refresh the body, mind, and spirit.
Guests may spend the day soaking up the sun with a cold drink in hand at the poolside lounge, Cabana. With four restaurants and two bars, the hotel’s dining options covers flavors from Asia to Europe, made with handpicked fresh organic ingredients from the Vakkaru farm. To end the night, the above-water Lagoon Bar serves creative cocktails and light snacks.
