Reachable in two ways, by flying from Malé International Airport to Hanimaadhoo Domestic Airport and then a 20-minute speedboat ride or by private yacht to the marina, the Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi in Maldives, Spa Resort & Marina is yet one more example of how comfortable and beautiful life can be.
The location is said to have been a pirate residence in tales and stories, but now is a modern-day deserted paradise in the full meaning of it. Being one of the three tourist destinations in the Haa Alifu Atoll, the resort occupies approximately five percent of the island. The remaining surface is covered in white sand, coconut and banana-trees as well as untouched terrain.
There are a total of six ways to get accommodated here, as follows: floating spots over infinity pools, residences with private pools, beachside villas or residences built on stilts on top of the ocean. By far, the most extravagant are the Hideaway Water Suites, each one boasting a sea-view spa room, with steam room, sauna and outdoor bathtub.
There are also private chefs to serve your most squeamish of culinary preferences, enjoyable both in the local restaurant or in your own room. The resort also features the largest whiskey collection in the entire Indian Ocean and the Hideaway Spa, renowned for its internal waterways, waterfall walls and traditional natural treatments.
There’s a price for all these, kept in decent limits though – starting at $963 per night, you may really find your paradise. Be sure you don’t get too fond of the landscapes, because they really are addictive.
