All resorts in the Maldives are unique and different. Usually they are either lush and green or have dreamy beaches. They either have shallow lagoons which are perfect for swimming or a vivid reef which is ideal for snorkeling. There are only a handful of resorts which cover all of these points – but the Constance Halaveli is definitely one of them!
Read about our whole stay at this luxury hotel in my hotel review:
Constance Halaveli Maldives
LOCATION & TRANSFER
The Constance Halaveli is located in the North Ari atoll of the Maldives which lies west of the capital Male. That’s why the resort is quickly reached via a 25 minutes seaplane transfer. After arriving at the international airport in Male we got welcomed by the airport staff and escorted to the beautiful Constance Lounge right at the seaplane boarding area. While waiting for our flight we enjoyed some refreshments, watched the seaplanes and did a PCR-Test which is mandatory for all guests.
During our stay at the Constance Halaveli we had the chance to test both of their villa categories: A Beach Villa and a Water Villa. This is what we liked the most about both categories:
Beach Villa with Pool
The first nights we stayed in a wonderful Beach Villa with ocean access and a private beach area. All Beach Villas are surrounded by a lush greenery for a maximum of privacy – we felt like we were on a lonely island. Additionally the many palm trees at the beach offer shady spots to hide from the strong midday heat.
Our villa was located on the sunrise side of the island which is perfect for swimming! The water is clear and turquoise and you can walk for hundred meters through the shallow lagoon.
The outdoor area consists of a roofed terrace, two sun beds and a little pool to refresh. But since we’ve been just one step away from the beach we always went into the incredible blue ocean and enjoyed our private paradise beach.
Inside the Beach Villa is one big room with a desk, the huge bed and the TV. Right behind it is the separate toilet and a big wardrobe located.
A double door leads outside into the amazing outdoor bathroom which left us speechless! It reminded us of a zen garden with a shower, two sinks, a roofed bath tub and even two sun beds to enjoy the atmosphere. What could be better than enjoying your morning shower under lush tropical trees with chirping birds all around you!
This insane bathroom and the fact that you’re so close to the beach is one of the biggest advantages of sleeping in a Beach Villa!
Water Villa with Pool
The Water Villas of the Constance Halaveli are very luxurious and beautiful too which makes it hard to decide between both categories.
All Water Villas have a big deck with a beautiful infinity pool and a second lower deck with a staircase which leads into the lagoon to go snorkeling. Just some meters away from your villa you will already see the reef drop with a vivid marine life.
The interior of the water villas is very cozy with a big bedroom on the one side and the luxurious bathroom on the other side. I especially loved the shower with ocean view and the freestanding bathtub which invites you for a bubble bath with pool & lagoon view. The glassed doors of the bathroom can be completely opened which gives you the feeling that it’s located on the terrace. But don’t worry about the privacy! All water villas have a wooden sight protection.
The jetty of the Constance Halaveli with 57 water villas, an overwater spa and another restaurant and shop, is the longest jetty I’ve ever seen in the Maldives. We slept in the last but one villa and really enjoyed the privacy. We just would have loved to have a bicycle to get around the island so we wouldn’t always have to call a buggy or walk along the long jetty before arriving on the island. But beside that we absolutely enjoyed everything about the beautiful water villas!
The Concept of the Constance Halaveli Maldives
As already mentioned above all arriving guests have to do a PCR-test in the Constance Lounge right at the airport. This second test is additionally to the PCR-test you have to do before traveling to the Maldives but is covered by the resort. That’s how they make sure that all guests can feel extra safe on the island and don’t have to wear masks while roaming around.
The Pool & Beach
All Villas of the Constance Halaveli do have their own private pool but additionally you find a big pool which is surrounded by palm trees right at the main beach, restaurant and bar of the resort. You can either relax in one of the sun beds or the cabanas and change between refreshing in the pool or in the ocean depending on what you’re in the mood for 🙂 The area is also a nice spot to watch the sunset behind the water villas.
Water sports and snorkeling
All non motorized water sport equipment like snorkels, fins, kayaks, paddle boards etc. can be rented for free during your stay. But you can also rent a jet ski or join one of their many tours for a fair price!
If you wanna go snorkeling I can highly recommend the reef drop behind the water villas which are facing the open sea. The reef and especially the drop are full of colorful reef fish and little sharks. Not all resorts are surrounded by such a vivid marine life so we spent hours exploring the reef 🙂
Breakfast & Restaurants
There are three restaurant in total at the Constance Halaveli and two bars. We’ve been positively surprised about the moderate prices for food and beverages in combination with the great quality of the food. In other resorts we would have paid way more. Especially the two à la carte restaurants have been excellent!
Main Restaurant Jahaz
The biggest restaurant Jahaz is opened daily for a breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet while the dinner theme is changing every night.
We were positively surprised by the many options they offer for breakfast with an egg station and another one to order fresh waffles & pancakes. If you’re in the mood for it you can even grab a glass of champagne to start your day with a little extra boost 😉 The staff was always extremely kind and prudent so in case we had a special wish for our breakfast which we couldn’t find on the buffet they made it happen anyway!
Barefoot Grill Restaurant Meeru
The Meeru is only opened for dinner and serves a fresh selection of fish and meat choices from the grill. The restaurant is located right at the beach under the palm trees for a romantic atmosphere. We ordered a beef tenderloin steak and grilled reef fish and really loved both dishes!
Overwater Restaurant Jing
The Jing Restaurant has been my favorite! It’s located over water and you’re sitting right on the jetty with fish and shark swimming right below you. The cuisine is a fusion of Asian delights with European influences. The ingredients of all dishes go really well together and the dishes are served in a beautiful way – for a delicious dinner experience!
The Constance Halaveli offers all aspects that make a vacation in the Maldives so special: perfect paradise beaches, tropical palm trees, amazing snorkeling conditions and beautiful villas. No matter if you’re traveling as a couple and want a lot of privacy or as a family with kids – you will fall in love with the resort!
The staff of the Constance Halaveli has always been a next level of kind and courteous which made our stay even more memorable. 🙂
