Viceroy Maldives is located in Shaviyani Atoll, 192 km from the capital island of Malé and the International Airport. On the Maldives' uncharted northern edge, the resort is located on the private island of Vagaru, over 17 acres of palm trees and pristine sand encircling a blue lagoon. Access to Vagaru is easily accommodated via seaplane taxi, less than an hour's flight from the main island of Malé.


The resort is comprised of 61 Villas with 32 over the water and 29 on the beach. Each Villa is designed with the intent to have maximum privacy, either on the lagoon or on the beach by providing ample distance between each of the villas to maintain intimacy and space for the guests. The resort's 61 villas resemble the hull of an inverted Maldivian "dhoni" (a traditional fishing boat) and occupy the vast areas on the beach and lagoon.

Cloistered on the water's edge, the Beach Villas offer generous living spaces surrounded by a lush screen of greenery. Past the shower and the tub in the bedroom's spacious en-suite bathroom, discover a door that opens out to the villa's private garden. The intimate garden area holds an outdoor shower and oversized private pool on the sundeck, leading directly onto the soft sand of the beach or up to the open spaces of the living area.

Deluxe 2 Bedroom Beach Villa with Pool

Nestled between lush gardens and the soft sand of the island's edge lay the Deluxe Beach Villas, with private pools and incredible views beyond the windows of the soaring interiors. Each of our Deluxe Beach Villas have floor to ceiling windows, soaring ceilings that rise above the master bedroom, spacious living room and en-suite bathroom with its own outdoor shower nestled in a private garden. The villa has a second floor loft, where the daybed provides additional space for lounging or just soaking in the panoramic views. Adjoining to the master bedroom is a second bedroom with two twin beds and an attached bathroom, ideal for families and couples alike.

The Villa's living area is designed for entertaining, with the dining room and fully stocked bar connecting the media lounge and a game room with a champion-sized pool table. Guests in the lower level's two bedrooms can easily dip in the lagoon or the private plunge Jacuzzi off their individual decks, each furnished with sun loungers and an outdoor shower. Designed for unparalleled seclusion and luxury, the master suite is designed for privacy and savoring the singular views of sunrise and sunset over the lagoon and the Indian Ocean.

The full allure of Vagaru exists both under and upon its waters—the sea and air are alive with adventure, and the key to accessing them lies in the expansive Dive and Watersports Center. With a house reef just off the shore plus unchartered dive and snorkeling sites, novice and experienced divers alike can revel in the island's underwater treasures with the Center's PADI certified training courses.

Dive Center
More of the Maldives is underwater than above. Therefore it is not surprising that the Maldives in known the world over as one of the premier dive destinations of the world. The country has thousands of reefs and over 1,000 different species of reef fish that inhabit them. There are also hundreds of species of soft and hard coral that adorn the reefs. Water temperatures stay within the 27 to 30 degree Celsius. During the warmer period, divers and snorkelers are comfortable diving without wetsuits, although Lycra and 3mm wetsuits are the norm. Some divers prefer 5mm wetsuits for night dives or dives during the rainy season. You may contact the dive center at the Viceroy Maldives prior to your arrival for recommendations on equipment or simply let us provide you with our world class gear once you arrive at the resort.

Our dive team, operated by Best Dives Maldives, welcomes you to world-class diving in the Maldives. The advantage of diving in the Shaviyani Atoll is that its relatively unknown and the sites remain virgin (to most extent) by tourists due to the remoteness of the resort. Whether you are an experienced diver or are deciding if this is a sport that you want to venture into, you could go on your first underwater discovery. The world beneath will dazzle you with its marine life and it would be unfortunate if you left without seeing the diversity and richness of its marine life.

We have charted numerous dive sites, each with its own unique characteristics and points of interest. Explore the vibrant reefs and encounter manta rays, Napoleon wrasses, turtles, sweetlips, tuna and many other underwater inhabitants.
