Vakkaru Maldives introduces exciting new facilities and enhanced experiences for 2022

Recently voted the Indian Ocean's 'Leading Resort' in this  year's World Travel Awards, Vakkaru Maldives is excited to unveil a series of new experiences and upgraded facilities for 2022. From a state-of-the-art padel court to a range  of immersive dining experiences, these new offerings are designed to further enhance the guest journey on the private island sanctuary, and will be rolled out in time for the upcoming  festive season. 
To keep sports enthusiasts on their toes, Vakkaru will add a padel tennis court, which opens  this December, to their extensive repertoire of sports and exercise facilities. This popular  racket game is guaranteed to give a full-body workout and is perfect as a serious workout for  two or as a family bonding exercise. Meanwhile, budding tennis champs can improve their  serve and game on Vakkaru's upgraded tennis court, recently resurfaced by the professional  team responsible for the Australian Open tennis court. 
By mid-December, those seeking to balance their overall wellbeing can practice their  downward dog and develop their breathwork at the brand-new, sunset-facing yoga pavilion  on Vakku beach. Emerge from a relaxing yoga class feeling calm and refreshed, before heading over to the resort's overwater Merana Spa for a pampering treatment. 
They say food is the ingredient that binds us together, a belief which Vakkaru firmly stands by.  This November, the resort's popular Lagoon Bar will add some sizzle and flash to its menu  with the addition of a new teppanyaki table that can seat up to 10 guests. The best sunset  watching spot on the island and popular for sushi, sashimi, and signature cocktails, Lagoon  Bar will have a chef slicing and searing right before your eyes, serving up steak, fresh-of-the boat seafood, and organic vegetables straight off the iron griddle. 
Another culinary adventure also awaits guests in the resort's Organic Farm, which continues  to evolve into a lush tropical island garden and a location of dining events. Encircled by  coconut trees, the farm produces some of the freshest fruits, herbs and vegetables for our  restaurant and bar, from lemongrass, Maldivian chilli to water spinach. Here, a newly  installed dining table seating up to 10 guests provides a tranquil space for a sociable back to-nature dining experience. Guests can come together for an authentic Farm-to-Table 
experience, where they are invited to pick their own herbs and vegetables for salads whilst  the chef prepares freshly caught seafood from the Indian Ocean.  
Speaking of these new developments, Vakkaru's General Manager, Iain McCormack says,  "At Vakkaru, we are committed to enhancing the guest experience by continually responding  to ever-changing industry trends and consumer demands. We look forward to welcoming  guests to our paradise island to experience these exciting new initiatives which have been  rolled out just as the Maldives prepares to celebrate its Golden Jubilee Year of Tourism in  2022."
