An hours scenic plane ride away, Equator Village, located on the upper tip of Addu Atoll’s heart-shaped landmass comes in a package of unique beauty and intriguing history. An exotic adventure begins, the moment you start your journey to Equator Village. This is not your typical Maldivian resort; this is an equatorial escape into a land of culture and nature entwined together. The resort is vast in size, with a forestry of green, large shady trees looming overhead. This makes for incredible bird watching in the evenings and early mornings as trees are busy with the Dhondheeni who call these their home. Tree lined pathways through courtyard gardens lead to the quaint and chic bungalows, in the midst of tropical blooms, each with comfortable white wicker seating in spacious verandas. Only a few feet away from the rooms are soft sandy beaches and inviting turquoise waters that sparkle beyond the beaches. With the unique blend of beauty, rich history and endless possibilities for adventure, Equator Village is the ideal getaway for those who wish to experience a different side of the Maldives.
The rooms are cozy, spacious, and designed to give you the most comfortable nights’ sleep. The resort offers 78 rooms, with two basic categories of rooms. Simple and comfortable standard rooms offering a cozy shack and the twin sharing room offering a living space fitted with all the amenities and a mini bar, with the adjoining door leading to the bedroom. Each room type opens up to lush vegetation just outside, where guests can relax and read a book under the massive trees. The rooms are separated by thick green shrubs blooming with pretty flowers. During the day, guests are treated to their very own ‘Nat-geo’ moment of the bumble bees and butterflies buzzing around the flowers. Apart from the slight buzzing and humming of these exquisite insects, the resort tends to be quiet throughout the day
