Naladhu Private Island, Maldives
Naladhu Private Island Maldives
What it is
A collection of beach villas, open to the Indian Ocean breeze.
What it isn't
Buttoned up and AC-sealed. If you want a business hotel, head to the mainland.
What we think
There are only 20 luxe, thatch-roofed villas and houses on this tropical property, which translates to intimate, private island-vibes for you and your cohorts. No matter which villa you book, you’ll have your own turquoise infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean, a steam room and a butler at your beck-and-call. But you didn’t come here to hole up in your room, did you? Ask your butler to prepare a picnic lunch and you’ll be whisked to a tiny atoll via Catamaran, with plenty of snorkel gear. Or kayak a nearby lagoon, eyes peeled, looking for stingrays, whale sharks, and black-and-white-striped Oriental Sweetlips fish. It’s all in a day’s fun, here.
You're here because
Those Indian Ocean beaches that most people only see on their screen savers? They’re here, they’re pinch-me real, and they’re right outside your breezy oceanfront villa.
There’s no calming spa music necessary in the Ocean Retreat spa, because all you hear during your lime and ginger salt scrub is the waves crashing softly against white sand—and your own contented heartbeat.
