If you’re looking for a truly luxurious Maldives surf resort, then Kuda Villingili Resort is going to tick all the boxes for indulgence, experience, and, of course, pumping surf!
Newly opened in June 2021, this stunning slice of paradise is nestled amongst some of the best surf breaks that the Maldives has to offer.
Situated on Kuda Villingili Island, the resort’s home break is Chickens – one of the longest, most fun left-handers the country has to offer, and it’s a firm favorite of the Stoked Surf Adventures team!
With waves that will keep all levels of surfer happy, Chickens offer long, carvable walls and, on bigger swells, some cheeky cover-up sections too. Even the most experienced surfer will have a big smile on their face after a session there.
For experienced surfers, the 2 other premium surf breaks in the area – Cokes and Sultans – are the stars of the show though.
Cokes sits right across the channel (only about a 3-minute boat transfer) and is one of the most famous Maldives surf spots – serving up fast, reeling, right-hand tubes.
Sultans (about a 10-minute boat ride away) is another fast, hollow right-hander, with the left of Honkys sitting a short paddle up the reef.
The North Male Atoll is also home to some other incredible breaks, including Sultans, Jailbreak,s and Ninjas, so you’ll be spoilt for choice in this wave-rich area.
And then, of course, there’s the base for your trip – Kuda Villingili Resort. This world-class Maldives surf resort comes with everything you’d expect from Maldives 5* luxury, including the largest swimming pool in the Maldives!
Choose from a range of accommodation options – from the Deluxe Haven right through to the extravagant Water Villa with Pool – for that full Maldives overwater bungalow experience.
If you’re traveling with the family, you can drop the kids off at the Kuda Fiyo Island Playground for a day filled with fun whilst you hit the waves, relax or get involved in some of the other incredible activities Kuda Villingili Resort has to offer.
Kick back on island time in style at the Exclusive Spa Island, which offers a range of treatments perfect for some post-surf indulgence, try your hand at scuba diving, or head out on a day trip to snorkel with turtles and even manta rays.
Kuda Villingili Resort has everything you need to balance surf, sun, and that tropical luxury that only the Maldives can offer.
The only real question is, when will you be going?
Malé Airport, Maldives
For those looking to learn to surf, Kuda Villingili offers prime access to Chickens, ideal for getting started. As you progress, you can head more towards the peak and enjoy long, reeling lefts.
For more intermediate surfers, Chickens on a bigger swell offers some memorable rides and even some cheeky covers ups on the right conditions. Cokes sits right across the channel and on medium swell is suitable for intermediate surfers – as are neighbouring breaks like Jails, Sultans, Honky’s and Ninjas.
When it comes to advanced surfers, the peak surf season will have you spoilt for choice. Cokes is one of the most iconic waves in the Maldives, offer fast, hollow rides, and Sultans is another favourite for advanced surfers. And, of course, you have Chickens right on your doorstep – which is a goofy footer favourite!
