Va-va-voom villas


Treasure island

Your eyeballs will do a visual ping-pong at Constance Halaveli in the Maldives, where the sky is as blue as the sea and the sand is as white as the clouds. The only visual interruption is the coconut-brown villas (and your blossoming tan).

At the hotel

White-sand beach; overwater spa with treatment rooms; tennis court; two boutiques (one selling jewellery, one selling clothing); kids club; departure lounge with showers; free WiFi. In rooms: TV, DVD player, minibar.

Our favourite rooms

Do you want to wake up bang on the beach or in an overwater villa? (This is about as stressful as decision-making gets here.) We’d opt for the latter, thanks to the overwater villas' overwater plunge pools and chic sea-and-sand colour scheme. Number 90 is the very last villa on the jetty, so feels very private (but be prepared for a 1km walk to breakfast… perhaps just order room service?).


Spy on the ocean from the glittering main pool, next to Jahaz restaurant and the bar. When you want to cool down, stake out sun loungers under an umbrella or in the shade of one of the swaying palm trees. Each villa has its own plunge pool.

Packing tips

Wannabe Nadals can leave their rackets and balls behind – the hotel has a stash of tennis kit for guests to borrow. Snorkelling equipment is also on loan.


Welcome. Extra beds (USD130 a night) and cots (free) can be added to rooms; the various restaurants all share a children’s menu. Babysitting is available (US$20 an hour, plus tax, before 7pm; US$25 after that).

Best for

All ages.

Recommended rooms

For bags of room, book a Beach Villa: the Family Beach Villas are best for parents with younger children; the Double Storey Beach Villas are perfect for parents with teens in tow.


None, but there’s a kids club for 4-11-year olds (younger ones can come too, if they’re accompanied by a parent). There’s no charge for using the kids club, which offers a different set of themed activities every day.


Kids will love the beach, pool and watersports on offer (wakeboarding, water skiing, windsurfing, pedalos and catamaran lessons). Diving courses are available for over-7s. The kids club offers plenty of special sessions for young ‘uns, including pizza-making, arts and crafts, pirate adventures and more. 


Swimming pool

Kids will love the swimming pool and the sandy beach in front of it. There’s no shallow end, just steps leading into the pool, so keep an eye on hesitant water babies.


Each of the three restaurants has a children’s menu; highchairs are also on-loan at all three.



Babysitting with hotel staff is available for around US$20 an hour (plus tax) before 7pm, US$25 after that (two-hour minimum).

No need to pack

The hotel can provide beakers/feeder cups, indoor/soft toys, books, crayons/paints and paper, outdoor toys, arm bands/swimming aids for infants, board games and puzzles.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Bag a table outside by the pool at Jahaz, kick off your shoes, scrunch your toes into the warm, soft sand and don’t move for a good few hours.

Dress Code

Beachwear plus cover-ups at Jahaz; floaty and flowery at Meera; island sophisticate for Jing.

Hotel restaurant

Pretend you’re sitting in a giant’s upturned boat at Jahaz, whose ceiling is strung with rainbow-coloured lanterns. Pick from a generous buffet at breakfast and dinner; lunch is à la carte. Your other dining options include 10-table Meeru for delicious dinners of grilled meat or fish, and romantic Jing – located half-way down the overwater jetty – which serves adventurous fusion food in a stunning turquoise and dark-wood dining room.

Hotel bar

Two open-air pavilions by the pool make up Jahaz bar, which is open from 10.30am until late. Sit up at the bar or relax into one of the circular day beds and order a Halaveli Bubbles cocktails (we loved Honey Chuckle Suckle, made with honey and saffron syrup, white rum, fig liqeur and lime, topped with champagne). Gin-lovers will be pleased to hear that there are 11 G&Ts to choose from (all of which feature the hotel's own infused gin), including an intriguing earl grey number. A small menu of sandwiches, salads and hot dogs is on offer at the bar.

Last orders

Drinks are served at the bar until guests get tired of drinking. Jahaz closes at 10.30pm; Meeru and Jing at 10pm.

Room service

Thanks to the extensive 24-hour room service, you could feasibly never leave your villa and plunge pool. On lazy mornings, order from the à la carte breakfast menu between 6am and 11.30am; the main menu is available after that.

This booking requires a seaplane transfer

You need a transfer to reach this hotel. For approximate costs, see location information


Fly into Malé International Airport (‎), where you’ll be met by hotel staff and whisked away to Constance’s seaplane lounge to take the 25-minute seaplane transfer to the hotel. The seaplanes only operate in daylight hours (between 6am and 4pm). Return hotel transfers cost from US$520 for adults (over-11s); from US$260 for 2–11s. Tots can travel for free, as long as they share someone's seat.

Worth getting out of bed for

Constance Halaveli is in the North Atoll, one of the Maldives’ best atolls for diving. Take advantage of this by signing up for a diving course: pick from beginners’ courses, night-, wreck- and photography-diving. You can also do your PADI here and there are two specialty courses: manta ray awareness (written by the dive-centre manager, Alexis Vincent) and a shark awareness course written by shark-dive specialist, Giuseppe d’Amato. A white-sand beach encircles the island, so you can also go for snorkelling sessions (borrow equipment), read on the warm sand or indulge in some watersports: wakeboarding, water skiing, windsurfing, pedalos and catamaran lessons are all on offer here (non-motorised watersports are free). You can also try your hand at big game or traditional fishing, go snorkelling with whalesharks, have a sunset or dolphin cruise on a dhoni or do some star-gazing. Perfect your serve on the tennis court or flop around in the main pool. If all this sounds tiring, book a spa treatment immediately. Keen shoppers can also stock up on holiday jewels and threads at the hotel's two chic boutiques.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this aquatic hotel in the Alifu Alifu Atoll, and unpacked their swimwear and shell jewellery, a full account of their tropical luxury break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Constance Halaveli in the Maldives…

Whoever said that size doesn’t matter was lying: Halaveli’s 1km overwater jetty is the longest in the Maldives, and we can’t think of anything we’d rather do than trundle down it, dolphin-spotting and coral-admiring all the way. Before you even rock up at this island hotel though, the mood is set: guests waiting in Constance’s seaplane lounge are treated to free drinks and snacks, and can snap the seaplanes touching down and taking off – providing fodder for the first of many envy-inducing Instagram pics.

Keen photographers will be spoiled for choice when it comes to worthy subjects here: the milk-white beach and its azure waters; the romantic villas with their cream-and-blue good looks; private plunge pools overlooking the ocean and three handsome restaurants, each turning out plates worth snapping (#delicious). Chances are though, you’ll be having far too good a time to be wielding a camera (plus you wouldn't want to get it wet): watersports by the beach, rallies on the tennis court; spa treatments on an overwater massage bed, starlit romantic dinners on the sand; lazy snoozes by the pool and sunset cruises on a dhoni. Bliss.
