Royal Island Maldives Overview
Royal Island Resort Maldives is on the island of Horubadhoo in the Baa Atoll. So that’s northwest of Malé International Airport and reached by seaplane in about 30 minutes.
Upon arrival it’s a few minutes in a boat from the seaplane landing pontoon to a good old welcoming terra firma.
If you choose to travel from Malé to Royal Island resort Maldives by speedboat it’s a journey of about two and a half hours…
and you should consider this when you book your holiday as you’ll already have spent a number of hours travelling... Having said that, it’s a chance to get some shut-eye before arriving at the island!
Royal Island resort Maldives is less than a kilometre long and about 200 meters wide.
The beach size around the island fluctuates and is topped up by pumping sand from the seabed. This is common practice in the battle against erosion on many Maldive islands.
The northwest beach is but a tiny strand, whereas farther round the island it widens out and the trees create long shifting shadows across the broad sands.
Royal Island Maldives Accommodation
There are two types of accommodation available on the Royal Island Resort and Spa Maldives. Both are designed with elegance, a richness of furnishings and stylish carved wood interiors.
148 Beach Villas are situated along both lengths of the island, discretely dotted among the palm trees and lush green foliage. We think about ten of them are arranged with interconnecting rooms so ideal for those travellers with children.
We know that the villas on the south side of Royal Island are the first to get booked up, as the sun stays there longest.
Two presidential suites sit at the sunset and sunrise tips of the island. These two suites are spacious with large decks and beach access.
All of Royal Island resort's villas and suites come with air-conditioning and the obligatory ceiling fan (Charley and I are still trying to figure how effective this is but it looks the part!)
IDD telephone satellite TV with in-house movies, a mini-bar and room safe for locking up the mini-bar contents (joke!) a spacious bathroom with tub, bidet and large open air shower (delicious!)... and of course terrace and seating for those languid evenings watching the stars.
