This small private island provides an intimate retreat and its impeccable attention to detail is reflected in its numerous accolades. Each of the 20 private houses has its own infinity pool – so you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave your room. If you do, there is a good range of water sports and on land activities, including an attractive spa and bespoke culinary experiences.
Naladhu Private Island is situated on Velighandu Huraa in the South Male Atoll, 13 miles from Male International Airport. A speedboat transfer to and from the resort takes around 30 minutes. The hotel can also arrange a private transfer on their luxury Nirvana Yacht. It is also possible to take a shuttle boat to sister property Anantara Dhigu. Or you can access the facilities at nearby Anantara Veli, accessible by a board walk, exclusively for guests over 18 years or families with dinner reservations.
Choose between the Ocean Houses which offer stunning sunrise views from your bedroom and an ocean front deck with a dining area and a private beach cabana on the edge of the lagoon. Or opt for the seclusion of the Beach Houses, which provide a haven for beach lovers with your own private garden and direct access to the beach. Both Houses include an eight-metre infinity pool and provide 24-hour butler service. Your Kuwaanu will indulge your every whim, whether that’s curating a personalised wine selection or arranging private al fresco dining.
