Green Globe

Green Globe’s International Standard for Sustainable Tourism is a certification scheme that requires hotels to report on their sustainability performance throughout their supply chains. It traces its roots back to the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992, where 182 Heads of State endorsed the Agenda 21 principles of Sustainable Development. The standards are a collection of over 330 compliance indicators that are applied to 41 individual sustainability criteria - these can be divided into four themes:

• Sustainable Management
• Social/Economic
• Cultural Heritage
• Environmental

Clients can calculate their CO2e footprint, the financial cost of that CO2e, and track their performance of energy and water consumption and non-recyclable waste production. The certification is only awarded to members that have a compliance rating of at least 51%. The award can then only be maintained if members continually improve by 3% every year.

The resort feels & looks old. The service is normal and they don't seem to be interested but they get what you want at the end. This one suppose to be one of the top resorts but I've been to better ones.

The island is small, and really beautiful, the villas are very spacious, luxurious and comfortable, furnished with excellent taste, in a beautiful oriental style. The scent of the ocean, of the beach, of the tropical plants is everywhere, and makes its way also into your mind, chasing away all the pressures and the stress of our Western way of life. The service is absolutely flawless, extremely professional. The staff is really friendly, and they always help you with a smile. The spa is also an interesting place, a relaxing environment where people are taking care of you. The food is delicious, it ranges from the BBQs on the beach , when they cook the fish they caught a few hours before, to the more formal evenings, inspired sometimes by dishes of the Italian cuisine, in their fancy restaurants. It is a real paradise...

Very nice resort I will not go back again. As their food quality is not what you would expect from one of the luxury resort.

Now I am staying at a really nice resort with my family. My family is satisfied with everything in Jumeirah Vittaveli. The facilities, cleanliness and foods are excellent. Especially, all staffs and employees are friendly, and no matter where, they are always nice and kind. Here are very thoughtful people in J.V who care about every detail. They even installed microwave oven in the room to make hot pack for my husbamd with a sore knee. The J.V is considered the best resort in the Maldives. I hope many tourists from all over the world will come to J.V and enjoy the happiness that my family has. As a member of Kim's family, I would like to thank all staff of J.V. Now I want to catch each passing day in J.V. :)

Simply the best island in the Maldives and possibly one of the best resorts in the world. Perfect in every way for families.

This is one of the best. Jumeirah experience starts from the time you reach airport lounge and can reach the resort by a short 15 minutes boat ride. Beach villas are huge and includes one of the biggest private pools in villas. Butlers are available 24 hours to cater from simple requests. There are wide range of food and beverage outlets always they can offer something creative. Talise spa experience is another highlight.

The Resorts is amazing, but unfortunately the servise is below average. The water villa is beautiful but you can see Mali in the long distance in many villas, and in other villas there is some sort of construction going on in the sea. So for some who are interested to see a clear horizon and skyline this might not be possible. Other than that the place is relaxing and nice. Water villa is specious with good privacy. It is nice for couples as well as families with children as the kids club here is nice and they provide the kids with different activities

Great hotel if you are looking for a luxury retreat in a hotel format. Large villa/suites with private pool. Good good, great service and a lot of fun.

Pure luxury. If I could give this hotel 6 stars I would as I cannot begin to explain how great our experience was. We arrived to be greeted by our personal attendant who got us checked in and upgraded our room to one of the water suites. The staff were extremely attentive and knew our names after the first day. The food and pastries were beyond anything we have had and they catered to our ever need. Even when we thought it could not get better they let us have a day room when our flight was later to relax and shower. The room that we stayed in was a palace on water and 100% worth the price. Would highly recommend this place to anyone (including families) headed to the country. Not a single complaint. Recommend you picking up your snorkel gear right away and checking out the stingray feeding at 530 each night.

The highest rest service RUSSIAN LANGUAGE is an amazing place for rest and relaxation Outstanding resort, luxurious but not pretentious - you can be as formal or casual as you like. The staff are outstanding, always smiling and greeting you and eager to help you have the best experience ever! Food is outstanding - top recommendation is MU bar & grill for dinner, their beef tenderloin with spicy rub is sensational. Private beach villa is enormous, with a welcoming and refreshing wrap-around pool perfect for an early morning swim or to escape the heat through the day. Special mention also to the spa facilities - excellent Balinese massage for my partner and I really got our stay off to the best of starts

Fabulous Resort that leaves no Luxury out. Perfect warm welcome at the airport, luxurious Speedboat to the Resort, wonderful welcome. Personal guide caring fabulously and expertly for all questions or wishes.The houses are first class, immaculately clean, wonderful infinity pool with a view. Maintenanced at least twice a day. Went Scuba diving mostly, otherwise would have tried out the white beaches, the fitness area, the SPA, or any of the multiple activities offered like fishing, exploring other Islands, Yachting, Sailing and much more. Quality Restaurants, tried the sea food grill with a good choice and the french Restaurant with premium menues. All in all this stay could not have been better!!

Majestic experience, divine beaches and first class service. The rooms are spacious, pristine and the staff are incredibly helpful. It's proximity to the airport is very convenient; you take a boat instead of a seaplane. We went with an baby and the hotel provided a crib, a babysitter when needed and even sterilizing equipment for baby bottles.

They also have Russian speaking staff to cater to Russian tourists.

My family went there 2 times and still plan to go there. The service is amazing, the food and the villa is nice, and the sea is beautiful. One of the best resort I've gone so far!! I recommend everyone to go there!

worst experience ever. First of all, We booked the villa on the water so we have to take boat to go to the room. Every time we ask for the pick up we have to wait for a long time except checkout time. Secondly I haven't seen my butler or even got his call on the day we arrived, compare to other hotel we stayed the service is terrible. The salad we had in the room is not fresh at all, the salad tasted like kept in the refrigerator for 10 days. The thing that pissed me off the most is that The butler knows that the restaurant opening hr is 12:30, but I guess he is so eager to make sure that we leave our villa on time for them to clean the room for the next guest. Nobody tell us the restaurant opening hour. They send us to the restaurant by 11:40 and waited for the restaurant open for a long time. Again worst experience ever.

Spending a week here with my wife in this very special occasion was a correct choice. The staff were absolutely amazing. Beach suite was something from imagination. My problem was only with the AC because it's a hot weather it was not enough. They have a doctor on the island.

Amazing location and people. Some of the villas and amenities are dated though and could do with a revamp. Still, I'd go there again just for the people, the out of this world sights and the food!

I've been to JVM twice & I'm planing my 3rd visit soon during this coming Eid break, I usually stay more than 15 nights which sounds crazy to everyone but It's ok for me because love the environment at JVM, having said that I'm now in direct contact with the management team which now I called them my friends to plan maybe a 20 nights 🎉

Finally I suggest JVM to all of you guys, it's beyond expectation. My kids is looking forward to make new friends 😍

Love the atmosphere and the service..

Like all Maldivian pictures floating around showing amazing greenery and breath taking beaches, Jumeriah Vittaveli doesn't fall short with its unique scenery.
The staff are mostly nice and friendly.
There around 4 restaurants. An Indian (most expensive and worthwhile), a French, a Grill restaurant and kind of all day casual restaurant.
Like other resorts, Jumeriah has many activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, and jet skiing.
Once you arrive here you would be assigned a personal Butler who will attend to all your needs during the stay.

The resort us 20min away from the airport by speed boat..

Awesome,been to dozens if not hundreds of 5* hotels because of work , but this one was just truly something else been here twice already and hopefully going back in the summer , my #1 hotel and #1 holiday destination , the water villas are also preferred as its not too far from the main hotel and really focuses on privacy which is key.
Overall , a top notch hotel in its own right
