Heritance Aarah – Ultimate Luxury in Maldivian Paradise


When planning another vacation in a warm land, we often dream of an escape from the bustle of the city to an ideal destination that could be called the edge of the world if it existed. And let it sound like a fantasy, but there is a place that can make you believe you are in a paradise, so beautiful and remote from the daily issues that it is impossible to dream of more. That place is the marvelous Heritance Aarah, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury All-Inclusive Resorts in Asia.

The premium all-inclusive luxury five-star resort Heritance Aarah opened in December 2018 and was the sixth resort from the Sri Lankan luxury brand Aitken Spence Hotels and Resorts in the Maldives. It makes for a breathtaking experience even before you arrive. A 40-minute flight from Male (Velana International Airport) over the waters of the Indian Ocean is a spectacular prelude to exploring the resort on the enchanting island of Aarah, part of Raa Atoll.

Heritance Aarah offers elite accommodations in 150 villas, including 26 intimate duplex ocean suites, 56 sunset ocean villas, and 68 land villas. Six restaurants and five bars provide a diverse dining experience for the most discerning guests. The resort’s unparalleled top-notch facilities include in-room dining, complimentary Wi-Fi, pool-bar, a fully-equipped gymnasium, and Koka Kid’s Club. Those looking for true relaxation and inner bliss can get it at the overwater Medi Spa, one of the most holistic and the first-of-its-kind Maldives spa resorts, which offers six treatment rooms, among which a steam room is available.

“On behalf of the entire Heritance Aarah team, I would like to thank the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts for recognizing the resort as one of the best in Asia. We are grateful for the appreciation of our work and do our best to ensure that every guest has the best possible experience for body and soul here,” said Aitken Spence Hotels COO-Maldives Sector, Badhiya Gunathilake.

Since opening, Heritance Aarah has established itself as a resort that excels in curating a gastronomic journey for their guests, through its 11 dining and drinking outlets, with menus carefully prepared by Culinary Olympic award-winning chefs. The resort is also know for its impeccable service and hospitality from the heart.

The Resort is part of the Aitken Spence Hotels portfolio which operates 21 hotels and resorts in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman and India.
