When planning another vacation in a warm land, we often dream of an escape from the bustle of the city to an ideal destination that could be called the edge of the world if it existed. And even if it sound like a fantasy, there is a place that can make you believe you are in a paradise, beautiful and far from the madding crowd that it is impossible to dream of more. That place is the marvelous Heritance Aarah, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury All-Inclusive Resorts in Asia.
The premium all-inclusive luxury five-star resort Heritance Aarah opened in December 2018 and was the sixth resort from the Sri Lankan luxury brand Aitken Spence Hotels and Resorts in the Maldives. It makes for a breathtaking experience even before you arrive. A 40-minute flight from Male (Velana International Airport) over the waters of the Indian Ocean is a spectacular prelude to exploring the resort on the enchanting island of Aarah, part of Raa Atoll.
Heritance Aarah offers elite accommodations in 150 villas, including 26 intimate duplex ocean suites, 56 sunset ocean villas, and 68 land villas. Six restaurants and five bars provide a diverse dining experience for the most discerning guests. The resort’s unparalleled top-notch facilities include in-room dining, complimentary Wi-Fi, pool-bar, a fully-equipped gymnasium, and Koka Kid’s Club. Those looking for true relaxation and inner bliss can get it at the overwater Medi Spa, one of the most holistic and the first-of-its-kind Maldives spa resorts, which offers six treatment rooms, among which a steam room is available.
Since opening, Heritance Aarah has established itself as a resort that excels in curating a gastronomic journey for their guests, through its 11 dining and drinking outlets, with menus carefully prepared by Culinary Olympic award-winning chefs. The resort is also known for its impeccable service and hospitality from the heart.
The Resort is part of the Aitken Spence Hotels portfolio which operates 21 hotels and resorts in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman and India.
