About Us

The hotel is located in Hulumale and only 20 minutes’ drive from Male' and 15 minutes from the airport.  Ferry Terminal Park is 1.1 km from the accommodation. 

Azuvia Beach Retreat had been constructed since 2019 and opened its door to welcome the very first guests soon in September 2020. The concept and design had arisen from the Chairman and CEO vision; to create the stay experience full of relaxation, authenticity, and uniqueness specializing in great customer care. Over an area of 151.60 sq.m, the resort has its own identity and is a kind that is difficult to compete. Unlike many others in the area aiming for more rooms available, Azuvia Beach Retreat is more offering a private stay experience with the niche market for travelers who love authentic peaceful stay experiences. Our hotel is small, with only 9 rooms and 2 restaurants but we spared no effort to provide the utmost luxury even in small details. But more than anything, we are proudest of our Azuvia “values.

Agile in hospitality” and “Zestful in performance, Unlimited of Services”, Versatile in adaption, Impress for perfection and Attentive in services”

For all the values, we put our hand over the chest and welcome our guests. from the bottom of our hearts.
