Nova Maldives: The new star in the firmament of Maldivian hospitality scene

“Leave all worries, live in the moment and immerse yourself into the soulful spirit of the Maldives” is the motto of travelers visiting Nova, a Maldivian island resort, where the blue of the ocean merges with the endless sky, and life flows smoothly.

The name Nova captures the essence: it is the new star in the collection of Pulse Hotels & Resorts, the brand that stands for extraordinary experiences and resorts that are being built upon their core philosophy of being smart, playful, rooted and responsible and stand behind two other innovative and renowned Maldivian resorts, Kandima Maldives and The Nautilus Maldives.

Nova brand preaches smart luxury, impeccable service and its progressive all-inclusive community concept. Here, you will find not only varied breakfasts, lunches and dinners, but also all-inclusive experiences. Opened less than half a year ago, the island resort already features an extraordinary community. And people come to an island, which everyone dreamed of as a child, for this very sense of community and togetherness.

An important part of Nova magic is its pristine nature. The resort is located on a secluded island of South Ari Atoll, famous for its rich underwater world. The pride of Nova is its own magnificent coral house reef and a long wide sandy beach along the entire island. This is one of the few places where you can see whale sharks, rays and even manta rays all year round. Nova has a world-class diving center and an experienced marine biologist who will show you where to seek the most beautiful and rare underwater creature out there.

You can stay in one of the 76 beach and water villas that harmoniously complement the beauty of the island: natural materials and colorful tones, spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, terraces with jacuzzis, swimming pools and panoramic windows with stunning ocean views. All brand new, comfy and stylish! Some of the villas are located on the water, others are on the shore. And for lovers of complete privacy, there is a two bedroom beach residence with private pool and beautiful beach view.
Exploring the ocean depths is far from the only thing Nova offers to its clients. Here everyone will find something to their liking: beach volleyball competitions, conceptual photo shoots, learning to play the traditional Maldivian drums, and an art club where exhibitions of local artists are held. Perched right above the blue lagoon, Eskape Spa offers a holistic approach to simultaneously harmonize mind and body. We recommend you try doing yoga at dawn in a sun-drenched pavilion, a Thai mango body wrap or a signature four-hand massage for a complete reset.

Gastronomic experiences at Nova are a mandatory part of the program. Flames, is the grill restaurant where the freshest ingredients and the most delicious local fish, seafood and meat are grilled to perfection, while Mizu is a mysterious overwater pagoda restaurant, which serves teppanyaki dishes with a tropical twist. Solis Pool bar, is the ideal getaway spot to relax and enjoy the sun while sipping a delicious tropical drink. For the all dining buffet, Soul Kitchen brings the freshest tastes from all around the world. Wink is an informal cocktail bar on the beach, perfect for meeting new people and relaxing conversations. In the evenings guests are offered an extensive entertainment program: live music or DJ. You definitely won't get bored here! And for breakfast, the restaurant serves New York-style avocado toast and papaya smoothies. The offering is varied for the sophisticated tourist.

But the main thing in Nova is the atmosphere for which guests come again and again. The Nova team is sincerely welcoming all guets, regardless of their age or status, and are ready to meet any wishes. You can get lost among the palms with a book, while a Nova team member will silently bring you a cocktail and a plate of mango. You can also explore the ocean in the company of other enthusiasts from morning to evening and strengthen your body and spirit with meditation and sports at Nova’s state-of-the-art gym. Whatever activity you choose, one thing is for sure - you will want to return to Nova once again.
