Dive into Love This Valentine’s Day at SO/ Maldives
Imagine waking up this Valentine’s Day to a floating champagne breakfast and a day of sun, sea, sand and spa treatments ahead of you with your special someone.
Just a 15-minute boat ride from Malé Airport, the stylish island resort introduces a new generation of luxury for modern adventurers. SO/ Maldives boasts a statement collection of beachfront and over-water villas with panoramic views of the turquoise Emboodhoo Lagoon, while delicious dining and signature wellness journeys are at the heart of a typical day at the resort, giving you the chance to reconnect with your partner and with yourself.
Modern luxury meets signature artistic flair in the 80 beachfront and overwater villas, each offering panoramic views, open-plan living and a private pool and deck with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Spanning one to three bedrooms and with eight different categories, each villa is a cocoon of sartorial luxury that comes with Maison CODAGE toiletries which use sustainably sourced vegan ingredients, plush robes and slippers, and an individualised concierge service.
No Valentine’s break is complete without a romantic dining experience, and at SO/ Maldives, guests will be spoiled for choice. On 14th February, couples can celebrate the day with a five-course dinner, including free-flow house champagne, at the Riviera-inspired Lazuli Beach Club – where live music and a DJ will be entertaining guests for a lively evening. For a more laid-back atmosphere, head to casual, all-day dining destination The Citronelle Club for dishes inspired by the flavours of Asia, while Hadaba delivers the atmosphere and aromatic flavours of Arabian nights with sumptuous Levantine cuisine.
SHOW YOURSELF SOME LOVE
There are plenty of opportunities for you and your partner to reconnect with each other and with yourselves at the SO/ Maldives Wellness Camp. Get active at the state-of-the-art fitness sphere or totally unwind with the restorative spa menu and access the Camp’s facilities, including a hammam, steam and sauna rooms, Vichy Rainforest Shower, and revitalising vitality pool. Complimentary scheduled classes such as yoga, meditation, sound healing, and personal training sessions are also available, making for the perfect way to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day.
