LUXURY, GRANDEUR, and SECLUSION curated and defined as OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI – our next destination in the series of resort tours to the Maldives. 

First, let us get to know and become acquainted with this stylish and graciously indulging resort situated in South Male atoll. Enter into its world of refined elegance. And then proceed to Mr. Wu’s segment about his experience at the resort.

Built on an existing structure of what was previously known as Jumeirah Vittaveli Maldives, the resort is an island of its own. Elaborately renovated with the best modern aspects while keeping the nature-chic elements intact. It takes around 40 minutes of island transfer from Velana International Airport by a fancy and spacious catamaran.

Aside from its 75 opulent private villas across 5 different types – Earth Pool Villa Sunrise, Earth Pool Villa Sunset, Sunrise Earth Pool Pavilion, Ocean Pool Suite, and Ocean Pool Suites with Slide, an extensive selection of exceptional RESERVE accommodations are also available – Sunset Earth Pool Reserve, Private Ocean Reserve with Slide, Royal Reserve, and the newest addition, The Ozen Reserve. Every villa comes with a private pool and direct beach or lagoon access. Moreover, when it comes to activities, the resort is brimming with fun adventures and enjoyable events as well. From the 85-foot Super Yacht to its intimate dining and overwater restaurant.

A Blissful and Unforgettable Intimate Stay

Mr. Wu and his family returned to Male airport after checking out from Movenpick to facilitate the transfer to Ozen Reserve Bolifushi.

“We were privileged and fortunate to stay for four nights (15-19/June) in the 2-Bedroom Ocean Pool Reserve Sunset with Slide, which was absolutely breathtaking. From sunrise to sunset, we had amazing dramatic views of the Indian Ocean while immersed in the joys of luxurious island living. The resort is perfect not just for exciting family adventures but for intimate romantic getaways too.” narrated Mr. Wu.

He continued, “The catamaran island transfer was a great and memorable experience. But the major highlight of our stay was definitely the private overwater villa. It has a sizable master bedroom on the upper floor and a terrace extending outside into the open, which features an exhilarating ostentatious water slide. We had so much fun and enjoyed our quality bonding moments together, splashing and playing in the enormous slide winding down from the second-floor terrace into the lagoon. The lower level includes a large bathroom, a gracefully furnished living room, a second bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and outdoor seating on the expansive deck.”

The said accommodation is a mesmerizing overwater retreat having 2 floors with a 35 sqm private infinity pool, hammocks, sunbeds, and sunken seating. It cascades down a secluded wooden jetty dotted with outdoor furniture. Inside the villa, the vibe is modern, airy, and effortlessly luxe. Think of high ceilings, a fully stocked-up minibar and a wine fridge, three spa-like bathrooms, the main one with a huge bath overlooking the pool, and a general sense of tropical chic. And to top that, you won’t have to worry about paying for anything because The RESERVE PLAN covers everything from all food and drinks to 24-hour butler service and complimentary excursions.

When asked about unique or surprising happenings they encountered at the resort, Mr. Wu mentioned the strong integration of the local Maldivian culture and having an ice rink for skating. Also, the seemingly permanent resident moray eel. He further added to go snorkelling along the jetty towards the spa. A school of sweet lips fishes and more are dwelling in the area. Other notable go-rounds are the yellow buggy, having a similar impression to that of a London taxi, and the white-colored bicycles.

So if you’ve been dreaming of beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and lush green forests, OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI is the resort to be. It truly exemplifies refined elegance at its purest.
