Editor’s Pick: The Standard, Huruvalhi — Playfully Chic, Effortlessly Cool
A luxe island getaway in the heart of the Maldives, The Standard, Huruvalhi is anything but standard.
This 115-villa property is located in Raa Atoll, just a short seaplane ride away Male’s Velana International Airport. It offers a unique blend of fun, revitalization and adventure, perfect for a romantic escape, getaway with friends, or overdue family vacation.
Chic, airy beachfront and overwater villas offer decks and private plunge pools. All have free Wi-Fi, flat-screens and Bluetooth speakers, as well as minifridges, and ensuite bathrooms with soaking tubs and overhanging disco balls (yes, you read that right!).
Spend your days exploring the natural beauty of the island, with activities like snorkeling in the resort’s protected house reef, boating, deep diving and more.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more relaxing, check out with luxe spa treatments at The Standard Spa, complete with a communal hammam, aroma steam room, daily yoga and nine private treatment rooms.
From morning to evening, nourish and refuel at a variety of dining options, from the all day dining spot Kula to the resort’s authentic Maldivian overwater restaurant Guduguda. For a casual beach dinner, swing by the BBQ Shak, where fresh seafood and meats are grilled to perfection over coconut shell charcoal, with a variety of house-made sauces paired with each dish.
And how can we forget Beru Bar? This adults-only, over-water-club perched just feet above the ocean with a see-through dance floor. Enjoy the breeze with cocktails and fresh tropical juices, and the best sunset-viewing seat in the house. Carry on into the evening, with the largest disco ball in the Maldives and dance the night away.
