Opened this last November 2016, 01st, Milaidhoo is already one of the hottest new resorts in the Maldives right now.
Behind Milaidhoo concept, is the team & management of Maldives crown precious jewel, Baros Maldives.
Renowned for its excellence for long now, Baros Maldives has been listed by Dreaming of Maldives readers as one of the most wanted resort in the TOP 10 Maldives Dreamy Resorts, for several years in a row.
I must say that I’ve been eagerly waiting for this new resort to open. My main wonders were not about the future qualities of the resort services. No. It was more about its design and concept. Knowing Baros Maldives very well myself, I anticipated a wonderful island .
Although Baros hospitality has been proven for years, I was still wondering if Milaidhoo would be (just) another Luxury Resort (there are so many now and many more to come).
Opening a resort in Maldives is not a guarantee of success, despite the destination aura. Competition is tough, some companies make it and some other don’t, mostly in the Luxury branch. Design failures, concept failures, marketing failures, undelivered services and promises…rises and falls happened and will happen again, for various reasons, but that’s another subject.
Before the opening, from the first press releases and Artist Impressions, there was something different about Milaidhoo. Something personal.
We’ve visited Milaidhoo. And, well, yes. It is beautiful and it is different.
Milaidhoo is all about Maldives
Milaidhoo offers a return to a classic, relaxed Maldivian holiday with a lot of Style.
The resort villas were designed by local very talented Maldivian Architect Mohamed Shafeeq, whose portfolio includes some of the most beautiful resorts features in Maldives ( the so Iconic Lighthouse restaurant at Baros Maldives is his idea ) and numerous luxurious resorts in the Indian Ocean ( Seychelles, Mauritius, Thailand…).
At Milaidhoo, everything is about Maldives. Smooth lines, blending colors and architecture, thatched roofs and a lot of wood. No hard perspectives, no concrete, no cement.
One of the Resort restaurant is actually a series of 3 gorgeous traditional Maldivian boats, called Dhonis. Genius idea ! The result is amazing.
And About You
Yes, Milaidhoo is all about you and…LOVE
The idea here is to focus on people and personal sensations.
Milaidhoo’s philosophy is to care about each guest in a “custom made and made for comfort” way. They aim to provide the very best in a way that everything is individually tailored to each of us.
No bling bling bad taste and impersonal extravaganza. Elegance, simplicity and a lots of carefully crafted attentions are provided along the stay.
They are called Moments.
For the story, Milaidhoo has named a Star after itself. Yes, in the constellation of Gemini at RA 6.462 and declination +18.50, there is a Star called Milaidhoo.
And it doesn’t stop here. Honeymooners will have their Star too !
As a Resort clearly made for lovers, special moments were crafted for Honeymooners.
The Honeymoon package, rightly named “The Perfect Honeymoon” package is delightful. It also includes a 60-minute spa treatment for 2 at the over water Spa, a romantic 3-course candlelit dinner at your villa, a Chef signature honeymoon cake and a bottle of champagne.
Custom Engagement and Wedding ceremonies are also proposed. Tempting events, custom-made moments, just name it because everything is possible, including renting the entire island for the wedding and all your guests.

Milaidhoo. Visit & Photo Gallery
The small and naturally beautiful Island is located in Baa Atoll, at 35 mns by seaplane from Male International Airport.
Pretty & Tiny, Milaidhoo mesures only 300m wide on 180m length, it is surrounded by the Dreamy Duo, so dear to me : a big blue lagoon on one side, perfect for swimming and practice watersports and a close & rich house-reef on the other for snorkeling pleasures. Perfection.
