Sitting on an untouched atoll and boasting one of the best house reefs in the Maldives, the Park Hyatt Hadahaa is a diver’s paradise.
Great care has been taken to preserve the natural vegetation of the resort in order to minimise the environmental footprint and maintain the island's ambience, and the 50 Park Villas all reflect this. Nestled amongst the natural vegetation, each is resolutely private with both a private deck and garden complete with outdoor shower and bath. The bedrooms have a separate living area and it is only a short walk to the sandy beach. For the next step up opt for a Park Villa with Pool, or even the Water Villas which are perched above the Indian Ocean and have sensational views across the coral-filled waters.
The snorkelling and scuba diving here is fantastic, and the unspoilt and easily accessible coral reef is no more than 50 metres from the shore. The house reef is also remarkable, some say one of the best in the Maldives, so there often isn't need to venture any further afield. The Dive Centre offers both snorkelling and diving lessons, as well as providing facts on the marine life, and can put together a diving program tailored to guests individual needs.
The hotel has two restaurants - the Dining Room and Island Grill - as well as a bar and beachside Dhoni where guests can relax playing games or having a drink. Other facilities include a spa, gym, yoga pavilions, two freshwater pools, library and Wi-Fi throughout the island.
