This boutique private island resort is located in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Alongside its idyllic setting Milaidhoo puts an innovative focus on experience led stays, so making for a truly unique Maldivian resort.
47 villas and three residences are located on the island. Open thatched roofs bring a true island feel to your room and large, folding glass doors harmonize the indoor and outdoor environments. To maintain the focus on the stunning views, natural hues and minimalist contemporary design feature throughout each space. The Beach Pool Villas sit directly on the soft white sand and offer a large private freshwater pool and a hanging swing, while the Water Pool Villas feature a huge sundeck with steps that lead straight to the ocean. The two Beach Residences and one Ocean Residence are the ultimate in luxury stays, providing spacious seating areas, expansive decks, dedicated butler service and even a private outdoor cinema on their decks.
Three restaurants and two bars cater for a variety of dining styles and tastes at Milaidhoo. Ba'theli Lounge & Restaurant is set on a boat in the lagoon and serves authentic island cuisine in a truly unique setting. Ocean is, as the name implies, right by the ocean and serves casual international meals all day. Shoreline Grill serves tasty meats and fresh seafood in a private beachfront pavilion, or inside the grill restaurant. For drinks the Shoreline Grill Wine Room and the Compass Pool Bar are the places to head.
During your stay at Milaidhoo mind, body, and soul will be cared for with various amenities. These include the Serenity Spa, a yoga pavilion, meditation classes and a gym. You can also stay active by taking advantage of the snorkelling equipment and a collection of water sports including kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boarding. For a more easy going time, make your way to the library and game room or simply lounge on the beautiful beach and in the ocean. Divers will want to head below the surface with an experienced dive team from the five star PADI dive centre who can take you reef diving, boat diving, private diving and night diving. Alternatively, see if there's anything out to bite on a fishing expedition or discover an authentic Maldivian village that is only a boat ride away.
Head out on an evening boat trip to watch the dolphins swim at sunset - magic.
