Iconic real estate: floating water villas for sale on the Maldives
What could be more romantic than a unique Maldives water villa with snow-white tropical interiors, in the middle of the turquoise waters of the ocean, where there is nothing but you and the sky?
The islands of the Maldives mostly are volcanic in origin. Several of them, however, are man made. Some of these created islands include fantastic island resorts with all-inclusive packages, boasting chains of luxury floating houses and cottages on water, just off the most picturesque and breathtaking beaches of the Maldives. Swimming pools definitely won’t be needed. Paradise Beach Resort, Soneva Jani, Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, Velaa private island, or Meeru Island are perfect examples of the iconic, original water villas in the Maldives.
And if surfing is your thing, you can combine pursuing your favorite sport with ownership of an authentic Maldivian hideaway by purchasing your own modern oceanfront water villa within the stunning Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives.
The Maldives itself is the quintessential romantic getaway. Some specific islands, however, deserve first place mention. For example, Filitheyo Island Resort or Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort, which, in 2018, won the World Travel Award as the World's Leading Honeymoon Resort.
Practically all of the resorts in the Maldives offer the most beautiful island properties with inside pools, glass floor waterfront villas, and other fantastic homes for sale. We especially recommend taking a closer look at the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, renowned for its lush flora and fauna and known as the Three Coconut Isle. While searching for the perfect home in the Maldives available for sale, it is worth exploring the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives or The Royal Island Resort, a jewel in the Maldivian Crown of Real Estate.
As you search for the perfect island property for sale, take a close look at Malé island and houses available for purchase there. As the capital of the Maldives, it boasts a variety of five star resorts such as the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa and cheaper country property as well.
