Jawakara will focus on multigenerational family-friendly experiences
The newly opened Jawakara Islands Maldives is billed as a 290-villa ‘One Island, One Resort’ concept in the Indian Ocean targeting large family groups.
Located 40 minutes by speedboat from Madivaru domestic airport in Lhaviyani Atoll or by seaplane from Malé International Airport, the five-star getaway comprises two separate islands – Mabin and Dheru – connected by an oversea walkway.
Guests can choose to have an action-packed itinerary filled with watersports, golf, paddle and football on a full-sized pitch, or relax with two Suhla spas, a yoga retreat and two infinity pools.
Jawakara is one of the very few luxury resorts in the Maldives where guests can surf. The resort will provide equipment and lessons to guests looking to catch the perfect wave. Jawakara also offers a wealth of other water activities for families, from guided diving and snorkelling trips to paddleboarding and kayaking as well as the opportunity to complete certifications at the PADI five-star training centre alongside jet skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, sofa-rides, windsurfing, kayaks and catamaran sailing.
Other facilities include two infinity pools overlooking the ocean and a kid’s pool; artificial turf courts for football (futsal); padel tennis, tennis and badminton courts; a fitness centre; a volleyball court; and a nine-hole golf course, the biggest in the Maldives.
Mabin is home to 202 villas, while Dheru comprises 88 villas, totalling 110 Beach Villas, 90 Beach Pool Villas and 70 Water Pool Villas. This includes 10 two-bedroom Villas on Mabin which can be converted into a twin or triple room for larger groups or families.
In addition, there are five three-bedroom Beach Pool Villas that sleep up to eight people on Dehru. Two of the bedrooms have outdoor bathrooms while the middle bedroom has an indoor bathroom. These villas offer families flexible sleeping arrangements and are ideal for multigenerational holidays for large families travelling with domestic staff and for two families holidaying together.
Jawakara Islands Maldives general manager Maurice Van Den Bosch said: “Jawakara is designed to be every family’s dream luxury getaway. Every detail has been thought of for all generations. It's an all-encompassing offering that will define Jawakara as the pioneer for luxury multi-generational travel in classically Maldivian surroundings.”
