The White Lagoon, Floating Watervilla's, Maldives

The White Lagoon exists of 4 individual ring-shaped floating islands each with 72 Watervilla's connected to it. The rings function as beach-boulevards with white sand and greenery. At the inside of the rings there will be a marina with berthing places, restaurants, bars, shops and boutiques. A bridge makes it possible to let boats enter the ring. Every Watervilla has a private beach, pool and a roof terrace which provides beautiful views over the natural Lagoon and it’s white sandbank beach.
