Resort Concept & Highlights
Naladhu Maldives by Anantara 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 10 mns flight.
Nestled on a beautiful and tiny Island measuring only 123 meters wide by 180 meters long, Naladhu is one of the best secluded retreat for couples in Maldives. With only 19 Houses and 1 Villa, it is one of the smallest resorts of the archipelago and a unique small island, perfectly made to remain hidden. However, if you look for more excitement and activities you will be able to go and enjoy its close-by sister island resorts, located at a very short pontoon boat ride.
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:
Naladhu Maldives accommodates 19 Houses and 1 Residence, 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 and we love them for various reasons :
First for their unique and complete at-home feeling. Second, for their design and decoration. An harmonious blend of colonial style and modernity influenced by various countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Morocco and of course the Maldives. Real antique furniture's and art objects come to complete this perfect set.
Among many private services and activities Naladhu offers a series of Spa retreats and treatments to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own House or in one of its dedicated Ocean Retreat, for a tailored spa experience as well a very exclusive choice of private dining options.
