    A Message to Our Beloved Guests

Resort update and waiver policies

In response to the development of the Covid-19 pandemic, Vakkaru Maldives continues to follow the latest advice and recommendations from the authorities. Whilst the country is exerting every effort to contain the virus, the government of the Maldives is at its planning stage to introduce safe tourism guidelines. The Ministry of Tourism has officially announced on 30 May 2020, that the Maldives will be reopening its borders for visitors in July 2020.

Consequently, Vakkaru Maldives is looking forward to reopening its door for our valued guests on 1 August 2020.

‘Vakkare’ - Our commitment to wellbeing, safety and security

The Maldives already offers one of the safest locations in the world, owing to the natural and unique concept of one island one resort. At Vakkaru Maldives, we promise you an intimate slice of paradise, where you can enjoy a safe and happy holiday in the privacy of your own island home. The one proviso being that all travellers have to be fit for travel and entry into The Maldives.

In preparation for our reopening, our commitment to health and safety is of paramount importance. We are launching an elevated hygiene procedure called ‘Vakkare’, which means Vakkaru Cares for the guests, its team members, the community and the business partners. Our dedicated team are being trained to deliver the most hygienic attention possible from the moment they arrive into our ‘Kare’, providing our guests with the confidence that they will enjoy an exceptional vacation in the safest surroundings.

Whether you are travelling as a couple or in a family, you will be in our ‘Kare’, the moment you arrive at the Male International Airport. Our dedicated team will ensure the right escort until you embark on your scenic journey to our timeless sanctuary.

At the resort, all our elevated practices of hygiene and sanitation shall be reinforced in all the public areas, production outlets and housekeeping. Proactive sanitisation and social distancing measures, particularly in restaurants, buffets and other common areas such as the gym, pool and beach shall be observed. It is good to note that we will encourage many activities, such as diving, excursions, fishing and snorkelling, which can be privately enjoyed with limited contacts.

To give our guests complete peace of mind, all our team members will have been through all necessary medical checks prior to being back on duty. In the event of an emergency, our certified Resort Doctor has all the necessary equipment and accessories in place, together with an isolation room, in line with the WHO and local authorities’ requirements.

Our Waiver policy

We remain committed to ensuring our valued guests experience flexibility during these extraordinary times, so we have further extended our cancellation policy, exceptionally for all bookings confirmed in July 2020.

In the interim, we remain available to assist you with your existing reservations, rebooking process or to provide you with any information regarding booking a future stay at Vakkaru Maldives. Please contact us at [email protected]

At Vakkaru Maldives, rest assured that we are committed to the joy of travel and delivering exceptional experiences to our discerning guests in a safe and healthy environment.

Until then, stay safe and stay inspired to visit Maldives later. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our timeless sanctuary in the near future.
