The Island & the Concept
Naladhu Maldives is a Small Luxury Boutique Hotel located at 35 mns by speedboat from Male airport. The Resort can also be reached by private seaplane after a 5 mns flight.
Nestled on a beautiful and tiny Island measuring only 123 meters wide by 180 meters long, Naladhu is one of the best retreat for couples in Maldives.
Discreet, elegant and extremely private, Naladhu main aim is to answer to the highest expectations for intimacy.
A dedicated and discrete Butler is on call 24h/24h for any wish, the Spa and Yoga team will come to your House to pamper you, the Chef will execute any of your dream meal at the Living-Room restaurant or in your house.
The Resort has definitely mastered the Art of "Feeling-Like-Home" by creating a complete set of private and tailored services only and last but not least...a unique concept of Villas:
The resort accommodates 19 Houses, facing the lagoon or the Ocean. Remarkably intimate and romantic, they are all hidden in a superbly kept vegetation with sandy paths and a lot of tropical flowers.
Each Villa, called "House" is set up, built and decorated to absolutely look and feel like your own House, inside and outside.
Naladhu Houses are in our top 5 favourites Villas in Maldives.
We love them for various reasons : First for their unique and complete at-home feeling.
Second for their design and decoration, harmonious blend of colonial style and modernity influenced by various countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Morocco and of course Maldives. Delicate (real) antique furniture's and art objects come to complete this perfect set.
Among many other private services Naladhu offers a series of day Spa retreats to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own Beach or Ocean House for a tailored spa experience and a exclusive choice of private dining options.
Naladhu Maldives lifestyle is one of the few of its kind in Maldives. Recreating a Home-Like-Feeling atmosphere is often the ultimate achievement for Boutique Hotels.
The concept, challenging and exigent, requires a lot of creativity, attention to details as well as a constant -but very discrete- care. Reaching all expectations on this matter, Naladhu has definitely achieved this Dream.
Naladhu Maldives was chosen to be featured in the new Edition of Dreaming of Maldives, the Photography Book.

Note: Surrounded by a tropical garden, the Beach Houses are very secluded too, but as a consequence the protective vegetation disallow 100% open views to the sea. Please have a look at the aerial photo here to visualize the Houses.
