Milaidhoo Island Maldives

5* out of 5 stars

Tucked in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere reserve, surrounded by powdery white sands and nestled beside a colourful coral reef, Milaidhoo Maldives is a luxurious natural wonder. Envisage upscale delights with a ‘Reinvented Luxury’ twist, where guests will experience an indulgent escape in the Maldives’s most unique getaway.

In Milaidhoo Island Maldives’s vision, all guests are storywriters where each person crafts their own luxurious adventure. This is a place where couples and honeymooners can accompany a Maldivian fisherman to learn his tricks of the trade, or experience Maldivian life at a local island - and that's just to name a few. In addition to this, there’s a huge range of watersports to enjoy including transparent kayaks, paddle boards, snorkelling equipment and more. One of the most impressive features of Milaidhoo Maldives is its proximity to the breathtaking Hanifari Bay: the place where you’ll glimpse the world’s largest group of manta rays from June to November. And if you’re especially lucky, you might catch sight of a shark or two as well.

Back at the resort, Milaidhoo Maldives SPA has everything you’d expect and more. It offers guests a range of holistic treatments which include botanicals, African healing traditions, organic spa therapies by Elemis, TheraNaka and Coola. The overwater pavilion also hosts free yoga sessions. This is relaxation at its finest.

At the end of the day, guests will love the choice of dining options, which range from from The Shoreline Grill’s succulent seafood to the island-inspired cuisine of Ba’Theli Lounge & Restaurant.
