One of the most exclusive resorts in the Maldives, Cheval Blanc Randheli located in the Noonu Atoll offers the ultimate in art, design, style and luxury.
We love the concept of ‘Alchemists’ which they have in all the Cheval Blanc properties, who are there to design an array of tailor made activities for you to enjoy during your stay. These can range from wholesome journeys dedicated to well-being, to excursions to neighbouring desert islands, and a family treasure hunt around the tropical gardens, before indulging in a private BBQ on the beach and ending with a private cinema under the stars – every experience will be tailored to you and your every need.
Located in the Noonu Atoll, Cheval Blanc Randheli offers fantastic scuba diving and snorkelling, we especially love the ‘Night Fluorescence’ experience where you can discover the secret night-lives of the marine life beneath the sea. Equipped with a special blue LED filtered light and yellow filtered mask, the fluorescence of the night springs to life before your eyes. Partnered with the Manta Ray Conservation charity you can enjoy a once in a lifetime experience, sail by luxury yacht for 35 mins to the Manta Cleaning station where you can swim with these glorious creatures.
The interiors at Cheval Blanc Randheli are fabulous, with incredible attention to detail. With 15 Island Villas, 15 Water Villas and 14 Garden Water Villas to choose from, each has a unique personality and design that we are totally in love with. For the utmost in seclusion and privacy, the Owners Villa is set on its own dedicated island and is accessible from a private beach and jetty. The four-bedroom villa is the epitome of luxury with its own spa, 25-metre long outdoor pool, private beach and exotic gardens.
With a fabulous array of 5 restaurants and 3 bars, as well as tailored dining experiences and a wine and cigar cellar, you can indulge in a different experience every night. Le 1947 is the signature fine dining restaurant, La Table de Partage is a private dining room ideal for special celebrations, White offers a feet in the sand dining experience, Dyptique serves Japanese and South-east Asian cuisines and Deelani is the open-air Mediterranean restaurant on its own private jetty. Carte Blanche is the all-day in-villa dining with fresh food cooked live by chefs on request, and experiential dining at beautiful locations on the islands.
Dive into the culinary world with the Maison’s master chefs. Learn the secrets of how to make the perfect macaron, zingy lemon tarts, perfect pizza and anything else you desire! With a one-on-one session with the talented chefs, you can master the techniques and bring a little taste of Cheval Blanc back home with you.
Art is an integral aspect of this hotel, as it is in every Cheval Blanc Maison. The ocean, the villas, the restaurants, everywhere you look you will be amazed by the beautiful pieces which have been carefully curated and selected for your enjoyment. Our favourite series is ‘Couronne’ by artist Vincent Beaurin; the series is comprised of 46 brightly coloured spots made from marble and quartz sand. Each spot is completely unique and offers a calming aesthetic of blended colours. We also love Manuel Merida’s art piece, located in ‘The White’ restaurant – based on the notion of chance and movement, the organic material is constantly moving in a state of change, we could watch it for hours.
