Maldive: Cheval Blanc Randheli

French Art De Recevoir At Cheval Blanc Randhelli

Situated a mere 40-minute journey by private seaplane from the main island of Male, guests are transported in Cheval Blanc Randheli style to experience an exotic creative collaboration by celebrated architect Jean-Michel Gathy from Denniston.

The 45-villa Cheval Blanc Randheli offers an elegant and refined interpretation of island living. Catering to guests’ every need through expertly delivered tailor-made services, you can count on thoughtfully crafted experiences that will remain embedded within your soul long after you’ve returned home. Each loft-style villa offers generous space and privacy, as well as a luxurious infinity pool. Lush private gardens give an air of feeling completely connected with nature on land, while spacious overwater decks provide the ultimate access to underwater delights.

Seamlessly fusing contemporary with indigenous, modern with graceful, each architectural masterpiece is inspired by beloved island traditions set against a breathtaking lagoon seascape. Great attention has been given to the privacy of guests and ensuring a feeling of space. The sleek design of each residence showcases lofty cathedral ceilings framed by seven-metre-high hand-crafted doors, welcoming a refreshing openness between the indoors and outdoors.

If you have a birthday or anniversary on the horizon that is worth commemorating at the highest level, the Owner’s Villa treats you to your own private island, the ultimate holiday experience for families and friends. Sprawled across almost one hectare and accessible only via a private berth and jetty, the four-bedroom villa is the epitome of exclusive privacy. Unique facilities include an in-house spa, a 25-metre long outdoor pool, pristine white sand beaches and exotic gardens. Bespoke furnishings, artisan-crafted accessories, individual artworks and a grand piano create the ambience of a welcoming island estate. Enjoy a sunset cocktail at the bar or meditate at sunrise beneath a shady tree; the experience is all yours.

When not lounging within one’s private island sanctuary, the Cheval Blanc Spa offers five-star treatments by Guerlain, created exclusively for the Maison. Dedicated to wellbeing and a sensory journey beyond compare, each treatment villa overlooks the turquoise lagoon beyond, instilling a lasting sense of tranquillity. In addition to an irresistible menu of spa treatments, guests have access to a traditional hammam bath and yoga. During half-day or full-day spa getaways, munch on a selection of healthy snacks while lounging next to the infinity pool.

The Alchemists
Based on their intimate knowledge of the Maison and its environment, a team of alchemists compose unique experiences for your family that will inspire nostalgic reminiscing for years to come. Allow the Maison’s team to curate a personalised itinerary during your holiday to encompass your passions and dreams. Candlelit dinners on a deserted island, sunset yoga, reef snorkelling, or a fishing adventure – the possibilities are infinite. For the ultimate family escape, ask your team of alchemists to arrange for a day trip to one of the neighbouring islands. Located just a few miles away by sailboat, explore the fauna and flora of the island before embarking on a treasure hunt or indulging in a delicious seafood barbecue.
