With its debut in the Indian Ocean, the Barceló Hotel Group demonstrates its consistent expansion in top global destinations. Strategically located on Bodufinolhu Island in the South Ari Atoll, Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives invites guests into a world of unparalleled luxury, just 110 kilometres from the bustling capital city of Malé.
A perfect retreat for divers
A highlight of the island is its close proximity to the South Ari Marine Protected Area (SAMPA), a globally important site for whale sharks. This location makes the resort the ideal base for divers and underwater enthusiasts.
Elegance meets naturalness
The architectural design of the Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives stuns with elegance and natural-looking spaces. With 63 beach villas and 30 over water villas, the resort offers exclusive comfort. The combination of wood and a colour palette of white and beige tones, enriched by colourful accents, gives the villas an incomparable ambience.
Relaxation and activity go hand in hand at Barceló Whale Lagoon Maldives. The resort delights with two large infinity pools, a sun terrace and the Mandara Spa, which offers a wide range of treatments. For fitness enthusiasts, there is an in-house gym, and culinary delights await in three restaurants, a snack bar and three bars.
