The resort also comprises two ocean villas accessible only by boat that feature floor-to-ceiling windows and direct ocean access. The 32,000 sq. metre Ithaafushi Private Island includes a four-bedroom residence, a three bedroom beach villa and a two bedroom overwater villa.

The private island is complete with a chef and personal concierge team, a spa and gym, five swimming pools, beaches and an entertainment center.

The resort offers guests access to the Waldorf Astoria Spa, the water sport and PADI dive center, the Waldorf Astoria Young Discovery Park and Lagoon Pool, a 40 metre pool, a fitness centre, a range of wellness activities, sunrise meditation and private sunset dining.
