Kudadoo is one of the Maldives’ most sustainable resort
Kudadoo is an All-Inclusive adults-only private island located on a small and beautiful three-hectare private island in Lhaviyani Atoll. Sister island of Hurawalhi, the private resort boasts a total of 15 luxury private Residences.
The resort, which opened in 2018, is a masterpiece of eco-conscious design, and the brainchild of the visionary team at Yuji Yamazaki Architecture (YYA), based in the heart of New York City and behind the design of several other resorts in Maldives.
In a world where luxury and sustainability are sometimes seen as opposing forces, Kudadoo Maldives Private Island emerges as a shining example of how these seemingly contrasting elements can beautifully coexist.
Kudadoo’s architectural concept isn’t just about aesthetics and opulence, it’s also about energy efficiency.
The resort is designed to be in total harmony with the natural wonders that surround it. Its geometrical design is a marvel in itself, strategically minimizing electricity consumption throughout the day with natural air cooling system and 984 solar panels that feed the entire resort.
Kudadoo is entirely powered by solar panels
With a total of 984 solar panels installed on The Retreat’s roof ( Kudadoo’s main hub ) that produce a whopping 300kW of electricity, this island retreat is not just self-sustaining but a beacon of renewable energy.
The Residences are built with a clever energy-efficient cooling system
The resort’s commitment to nature extends to its design, where operable full-height windows grace each villa and public space, to have a natural cooling system.
Whether you opt for a one-bedroom or two-bedroom residence nestled in the serene sand lagoon, you’ll be treated to an open floor plan adorned with elegant Tasmanian Oak floors, an eco-cooling system, private outdoor decks, and your very own private infinity plunge pool.
More than half of each water villa’s private outdoor space has been meticulously crafted to ensure a generous five hours of shade during the day. Privacy is paramount, with innovative “Egg crate” privacy screen systems thoughtfully placed between each villa.
Here, every detail has been carefully curated to harmonize with the natural wonders that surround it.
Kudadoo Maldives Private Island doesn’t stop at its sustainable energy efforts. The resort proudly embraces other eco-conscious materials, including responsibly sourced wood from Indonesian, New Zealand, and Canadian forests, along with timber lovingly harvested from the Maldives itself.
