Dreaming of a Water Villa With Beautiful Turquoise Lagoon Views
The Maldives are heaven to stay overwater.
The Maldives opened their first overwater bungalow in the 80’s.
In 2020, the vast majority of the 160 Maldives resorts that are operating in the archipelago offer an incredible choice of water villas.
The destination offers thousands of stilt villas perched above the lagoon, proposed in various categories, sizes, location and prices.
Called overwater bungalows, water villas or overwater Suites, they all offer stunning views at the lagoon or the open ocean.
What is the difference between
lagoon views ?
A quick guide to choose your Water Villa
As similar these two vistas sound, they are not. When booking a water villa in Maldives, you might see mentions such as Ocean view or lagoon view. If it is the case, keep in mind that your horizon, surroundings, swimming and snorkeling access might be different. Ocean views might also mean views at the lagoon.
Here are the main differences between both :
1 / The surrounding colors.
2 / Snorkeling access and swimming around your villa.
WATER VILLAS WITH LAGOON VIEWS
If you choose to stay in a Water Villa with Lagoon views, your deck will have vistas on a turquoise sea.
Maldives Lagoons are shallow, therefore their color is very light and clear.
You can often see the sea bottom.
Such water villas are located far from the island reefs. The wider the island lagoon is, the most magnificent the turquoise surroundings will be.
The feeling of being surrounded by a gigantic blue swimming pool will be optimum. You will have direct access to sandy bottom floors but most of the time there will be no snorkeling.
Remark : if you want to snorkel directly from your water villa, you will have to choose a resort that is surrounded by a close-by house reef.
The lagoon will still have turquoise colors, but the villa will be surrounded by corals and deeper waters than the one described above. These water villas are a paradise for snorkeling.
Hereunder 2 water villas with lagoon views.
These 2 overwater villas are both located far away from the island house reefs and offer a huge turquoise lagoon.
However, they a have a difference : W ( on the left ) has a turquoise lagoon with corals and deeper waters than Gili Lankanfushi ( on the right ) which has shallow waters and very small density of corals in its lagoon.
At Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives, the lagoon is without any coral. The water is 100% blue, no black shades from corals, it looks and feels like a swimming pool with a smooth sandy bottom floor.
WATER VILLAS WITH OCEAN VIEWS
1 / If you choose to stay in a water villa with Ocean views, your deck will have vistas on a dark blue sea.
The sea you will admire will be deeper, therefore darker.
Such water villas are often located at the edge of the island reefs, close to the open sea.
2 / Swimming might not be accessible if your water villa is located nearby the island reefs. Snorkeling can be of a great interest, depending on the island shape.
Hereunder an aerial view of typical Water Villas With Ocean Views.
Their location is right on the island reefs. The deep blue Ocean color predominates together with the warm tones of the surrounding corals.
These water villas are ideal for snorkeling only.
