Jumeirah Vittaveli resort in the Maldives features 91 villa suites, many perched over a lagoon and all with individual pools

Rounding out a year of notable hotel openings (Shanghai, Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi), the Jumeirah hotel group launched the Jumeirah Vittaveli Maldives resort. This exotic Indian Ocean outpost features 91 villa suites, many perched over a lagoon and all with individual pools. Each accommodation is crafted from timber and thatch, mimicking the islands' casual, traditional architecture, while at the same time offering upscale creature comforts such as Apple media centers and private wine cellars. While the Maldives are known as a destination for romance, Vittaveli caters to both couples and families. Amenities include clubs for young children and teens, kids' menus and a special treatment program for families at Talise Spa. In addition, the resort emphasizes its culinary experience with three restaurants serving pan-Asian, Mediterranean and steak and local seafood.
