A teardrop-shaped, palm-fringed island spread across 250 acres of coral reef in the middle of the Indian Ocean provides the setting for this far-flung Maldives getaway. The resort has 105 overwater and beachfront villas topped with coconut thatch roofs, each with a knockout view across white sands and turquoise waters. The villas feature rich local influences, with traditional artworks set against contemporary furniture. The glass-floor spa allows you to watch the fish swim by while you get pampered. An outdoor infinity pool and a range of water sports (including a PADI-certified dive center) will keep you happily occupied until dinner, when the resort’s six restaurants serve a range of cuisines including Japanese, Mediterranean and gastro dishes with local flavors.
In the Area
You’ll reach the Loama Beach resort by seaplane from Malé — an experience in itself. This paradisiacal teardrop-shaped resort has all the white sand, blue water and palm trees you’ve been daydreaming about. But the resort is also keen to promote the Maldives’ heritage and has created a unique hub for the islands’ culture, the Loama Art Gallery and Loama Museum — the country’s only official museum outside Malé. For a firsthand taste of local life, take part in a Maldive-style sunset fishing trip. Diving and snorkeling in the Maldives are famously out of this world; for first-timers it’s hard to imagine a better place to learn.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotel which has now closed down. The food was out of this world, the dinner buffets were to die for except breakfast which was repetitive. Snorkelling was wonderful we saw a giant eagle ray, moray eel, sting rays, +++
The rooms were of a high 5* standard befitting of the Maldives. Unfortunately there was some construction going on next to our room which was unacceptable.
We visited Loama Resort in the Maldives during the rainy season. We definitely give it 5 stars. We loved it! The staff were amazingly kind, especially Suraj, Majibur, Shahin, Rose, Bel, Julia, Antari, and Raafiui. They were extremely competent, and treated us very kindly. We would recommend anyone going to the Maldives, to visit Loama Resort for exceptional treatment, a wonderful view, and comfortable lodgings. This was our first trip to the Maldives, and the resort was everything we had hoped it would be. We had a wonderful time, and really enjoyed the resort!
Everyone travels a long way to get to the Maldives, especially the out lying atolls. You don't want to arrive to find the other 30 guests at the resort are a tour group, from, lets say China.
You pay all that money and then...
This didn't happen to us, we planned and avoided it, because it's spoilt alot of freinds holidays in recent years. Staff at the resort confirmed it. Its not only this beautiful resort either.
Mid December and early February are times when you can avoid this.
The resort buffet food caters for the majority of guests, so unless you want to eat Chinese for your Maldives luxury break heed my advice. The resort is fabulous, the staff are international and great.
