There are very few destinations in the world that do barefoot luxury as well as the Maldives. The turquoise waters, the white-sand beaches, and the blackboard skies polka-dotted with stars promise travelers a paradise. But it’s the luxury resorts that serve you all the comforts, delights, and happiness that you could possibly hope for.
When you’re on one of these islands in the Indian Ocean, you stop the hustle and hear yourself think; no city sounds, no pollution, no fuss. You take off your shoes (and now masks), fill your heart with wonderful experiences, and take a breather in a location so gorgeous, Instagram is filled with its blues.

What else is on offer at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort, you ask?
Mercure is the only resort on Kooddoo Island and has just 70 villas. One island, one resort is a common feature in the Maldives—another luxury that you’ll rarely ever brush shoulders with another guest. At this resort, it feels like you’re on your own, on an island, to proffer your time to whatever your heart desires: playing tennis, snorkelling, swimming, dining, walking, or staring into the ocean from the bathtub of your beachside villa. The resort also offers excursions to nearby deserted islands—keep your camera ready because there are so many species to be discovered in the glistening waters. Apart from the restaurant and bars on site, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort can create intimate dining experiences, such as a floating breakfast in your pool and a romantic dinner for two on the beach. And when you feel the need to relax your muscles a bit more, there’s always a spa on the island to help you get rid of the city-stress.

The Maldives has managed to triumph over the virus and it has been welcoming travelers since July 2020. The country depends on tourist dollars, so it took a number of measures to ensure it remains a safe haven for vacationers (did you know it also came up with a rewards program last year?).
At Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort, there are preemptive measures, sanitation protocols, and regular checks to keep a firm grip on the situation. The good thing is that guests can remove their masks following temperature checks and the resort can facilitate the COVID test that U.S. travelers require to get back home. You can read more details here.
