Villa Stella

Villa Stella is not a resort, it’s a private villa on Rinbudhoo Island and the only guest house in the remote and wonderful Dhaalu Atoll. We cater to all those who are enchanted by the Maldives and wish to experience a country with full respect for its tradition, its culture and its local way of life. A stay at Villa Stella is unlike any other holiday in the Maldives: an unforgettable experience among the local population, in the most authentic Maldivian environment. Guest house services are offered in a very informal yet exclusive way – being Villa Stella the only guest house in the atoll – with a private boat for excursions, snorkeling and fishing. An excellent cook serves meals on the veranda of Villa Stella or on the beach.
