Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa claimed a prestigious accolade as the World’s Leading Luxury Private Island Resort at the 2021 World Travel Awards.

Emerald Maldives, a 5-star deluxe all-inclusive resort, is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, an organisation representing more than 400 hotels in over 80 countries.

The resort is situated in the up-and-coming destination of Raa Atoll alongside glamorous peers JOALI and The Standard Huruvalhi.

“To be voted the best in the world represents the ultimate accolade in travel and the pinnacle of success. Alongside the welcome return of global tourism, the trend amongst travellers is for extra indulgence and a determination to book only with the very best.
