The breathtaking tropical paradise that is Milaidhoo Island, Maldives

Once upon a time there was a tiny tropical island; an emerald drop of paradise wrapped in soft white sands, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef, lapped by warm turquoise waters and hidden in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Milaidhoo is that island.

Milaidhoo Island Maldives offers reinvented luxury and spacious outdoor living epitomising the true contemporary Maldives. This understated yet undeniably sophisticated 5-star boutique resort spans 13 acres with its design and concept proudly rooted in Maldivian culture. Set in Baa Atoll’s beautiful UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, this spectacular, secluded 50-villa island retreat is just a 35-minute seaplane flight from Maldives International Airport. Stylish, intimate and natural; here guests find a place where they truly belong.

Offering a taste of the true Maldives, Milaidhoo invites you to explore the natural beauty of the country. Surrounded by a wonderfully vibrant coral reef and soft sands for your bare feet to sink into, the island offers you a place to simply be; time to simply breathe.

Watch dolphins play on the surface of the turquoise ocean or snorkel the island’s house reef where – in season – manta rays and whale sharks have been known to visit. Take a traditional Maldivian sailing boat and head off into the far horizon, exploring coral reefs and deserted islands, and only coming home when you want to. Do nothing but doze on our beach and leave the busy-stuff to the hermit crabs and herons. Dive deep into the ocean and discover the mysteries and beauty below the surface or join our marine biologist and learn about endangered wildlife. Find yourself – and lose yourself – in the heart of nature.

Feel a million miles from everyday life and discover inspiring moments that enrich your life and excite your spirit of adventure. Don’t just go fishing; instead join a Maldivian fisherman and learn how it’s done here. Don’t just go on an excursion; instead, let a local take you by the hand and guide you through our culture and history. Don’t just do a cooking class; accept chef’s invitation to pick some local herbs with him and create a new dish together. Don’t just drink cocktails; join our sommelier or bartender on a tasting class and see if you can concoct something good enough to make it onto the drinks menu.

Your villa: a place you may never have been before but where you instantly feel like you belong.
Spacious and filled with light, outdoor living is what Milaidhoo does best: The villa opens up 180 degrees to allow the natural beauty of the Maldives inside. Indoors all around you are striking Maldivian elements, art pieces and contemporary custom-made furnishings thoughtfully designed for your comfort.
