My husband surprised me for our honeymoon and we landed in the Maldives. First stayed at Amilla Fushi for 5 nights, then the island 5 minutes away was Milaidhoo Island. We stayed here for 5 nights.
This resort was still being built when we arrived so it was brand new. Super quiet, only a handful of guests. It was kinda BLISS!! The island is tiny and you can walk around it in 10 minutes. This place is world class in every sense. It is very much an adults island as there is not to do for kids. All you can do is swim, sleep, read, eat and go to the spa. PERFECTION!! We stayed in a villa on the water and the room was just amazing. Great configuration. Plenty of places to sit, lie, sleep, sunbathe. The outdoor deck has an infinity pool and ladder in to the ocean. 2 daybeds. 2 day lounges, dining area, swinging bed. I could have stayed in the villa the whole time.
It's the food that was the most impressive. It was off the charts. They have a teppanyaki grill restaurant you can sit around...or dinner out on the deck. The breakfast is one of the best i have ever seen. I can still taste the smoothies and soft breads!!
The staff were also amazing the whole time. Really world class on every level.
The spa was also brilliant and i went a few times. Really smart operation and the rooms are separate villas on the water so as you lay down on the bed, the two french doors are wide open in front of you and you have incredible views of the water as you have your massage. Just amazing.
I would go back tomorrow if i could. 10/10 on every level.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Opened in November 2016, Milaidhoo Island Maldives is a boutique luxury resort in the Baa Atoll UNESCO biosphere reserve, close to Hanifaru Bay, 126km north west of Male. It's perfect for nature lovers as its own coral reef, which completely circles the island, is a protected area and noted as an outstanding snorkelling and diving site in its own right. The tiny beautiful island, abundant with tropical greenery, measures just 300 mby 180m and is fringed by white soft deep sand beaches. Designed for couples and honeymooners, Milaidhoo welcomes guests aged nine and above. Offering barefoot informality, each of the 50 spacious air-conditioned villas has its own private freshwater pool on the sundeck and opens up 180 degrees to allow the natural beauty of the island into the villa. Clever design ensures all villas have ocean views. The custom-made furnishings and thoughtful designs are Maldivian inspired, from natural wooden floor to the thatched roof all made by master craftsmen specifically for Milaidhoo. An island host is on hand to ensure every detail of the stay is perfect, from arranging spa appointments and excursions to ensuring the private wine fridge in the villa is stocked with the guest's personal favourites. The room rate includes breakfast as well as wi-fi, laundry, kayaking, use of snorkelling equipment and in-villa treats such as a bottle of champagne and tropical fruit basket on arrival as well as a daily evening turn-down with a gourmet gift from chef. The three restaurants and two bars are designed to appeal to the senses, offering outstanding dining in wonderfully informal settings. No shoes are required. Ever. Food lovers will enjoy the Milaidhoo Gourmet Plan, which is a dine-around meal plan offering daily breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as international and premium brands of spirits, beers and cocktails from a selection as well as fresh juices, soft drinks, mineral water, teas, coffees, milkshakes and smoothies and a premium selection of wines, hand-picked by the sommelier all day long. The over-water spa has four treatment suites and complimentary yoga and meditation classes take place in the open air over-water pavillion. For romantics, Milaidhoo is the perfect choice: from candlelit dinners to scented baths, from flower petal bedecked beds to the perfect place to say "I do'. Sports activities include sailing, catamarans, kayaks, a 24-hour gym, yacht trips, dolphin cruises, whale shark spotting, manta ray watching, conservation activities with the resident marine biologist, fishing, diving, snorkelling, and an open-air infinity pool. Milaidhoo is reached by a scenic 35-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport. Airport transfers are provided by the hotel at an extra charge.
