3 reasons to indulge in an all-inclusive Maldives holiday

Got the travel bug? Make your holiday budget work harder by booking an all-inclusive break to Heritance Aarah, opening soon


If you like to make multiple trips each year, being mindful of how much you’re spending  will help you keep your travel goals on track. An easy way to avoid a big bill at the end of your holiday is to opt for an all-inclusive package, such as the Premium Plan offered at Heritance Aarah in Maldives.

This tropical paradise island resort, opening in winter, is the first overseas Heritance Hotels and Resorts property by Sri Lanka based Aitken Spence Hotels (which you may already know for its sister brand Adaaran that has Adaaran Prestige Vadoo, Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, Adaaran Club Rannalhi and Adaaran Select Huduranfushi in Maldives).

Just like its sun-soaked siblings, Heritance Aarah has a fantastic location. In this case, its own private island home to a large lagoon and reef. Featuring 26 luxurious duplex ocean suites, 56 sunset ocean villas and 68 land villas, it welcomes everyone from couples seeking a boutique hideaway, to families looking for ample space in which to spread out. Here are three reasons why an all-inclusive stay could fit neatly into your holiday line-up this year…

You’ll arrive in style

Heritance Aarah is nestled on an island in the Raa Atoll, 40 minutes by air from Velana International Airport. After making the exciting journey by jet, giving you a bird’s eye view of the picture-perfect atolls, you’ll receive a complimentary bottle of sparkling upon arrival.


Activate your passions

The resort has a diving and watersports centre offering a range of excursions and adventures, along with a lively kids’ club, daily activities and a pampering spa set over the lagoon. All-inclusive guests receive one complimentary excursion each – simply choose from a range of activities, such as night fishing, a sunset cruise or a trip to a local island. There’s also a selection of non-motorised watersports to try, as well as complimentary snorkelling equipment available for the duration of your stay. Adventure seekers can embark on the free introductory dive. Plus, there’s a cool line-up of daily activities and excursions for children and young adults at the kids’ club.


Feed your inner foodie

Perhaps the best benefit of going all-inclusive is that you don’t have to worry about deciding where to dine. At Heritance Aarah, there are nine places to eat and drink, including six restaurants offering a taste of the world, from hawker favourites and French fare to Middle Eastern flavours. Three bars include an exclusive space for Ocean Suite guests, a poolside bar and an open-air rooftop venue. All-inclusive guests enjoy signature Dining by Design experiences (based on room category booked) so you can relax and follow your tastebuds.
