Intimate and stylish, at Milaidhoo it’s about enjoying the natural environment in understated luxury.
This stunning small island sits in the remote Baa Atoll – the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve that’s inhabited by dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks, and known for its seriously swish but sensitively-designed resorts. Milaidhoo opened its ‘doors’ in November 2016 and offers a world-class Indian Ocean escape with a focus on authentic barefoot luxury.
The house reef lies close to the beach and, as a marine-protected reef, is known for its excellent snorkelling and diving. For dining, Ba’theli makes an impression – set overwater with a spectacular design inspired by traditional dhonis, open for dinner and offering island-inspired cuisine. There’s also the main all-day dining Ocean restaurant at the water’s edge and a beach grill with private outdoor beach huts for two, intimate teppanyaki dining and a wine cellar. The spa is on the sunrise side of the island, with a yoga pavilion for sunrise yoga sessions.
Stylish, light and airy, the large villas all have private pools and an emphasis on outdoor living. With thatched roofs, bespoke furniture and a contemporary design that’s still in harmony with the surroundings, these are some of the most beautiful villas in the Maldives. Most are Water Pool Villas, with a curved infinity pool on the deck featuring an overwater gazebo/daybed and steps straight into the ocean. If you prefer to be on land, Beach Pool Villas have a spacious deck with day bed and oval-shaped pool fronting the white sands. For the ultimate in luxury, opt for one of the residences, where you’ll have your very own butler, private chef and outdoor cinema.
