We just can’t stop staring at this one. Soon to launch (in summer 2018) on the Lhaviyani Atoll, Kudadoo Maldives Private Island is the breathlessly anticipated new resort from Hurawalhi, and she’s an absolute knockout.
With just 15 gorgeously designed, Zen-like one and two-bedroom overwater villas spread out in a crescent from the pristine private island, this little slice of (adults-only) heaven is within easy reach of Hurawalhi, allowing guests access to the larger resort’s facilities. But really, why would you ever want to leave? This is pure ocean-bound escapism. Large sliding doors allow for beautiful cross-breezes as you luxuriate in your villa, with bleached wooden floors, private butler service and large freestanding bathtub. Outside, over the stunningly blue lagoon, your private infinity plunge pool awaits; an open invitation to see just how far you can sink into complete and utter bliss.
Drag yourself out for a divine meal at the island’s restaurant and bar, head across to the underwater restaurant at Hurawalhi, or simply dine on your private deck as sunset puts on her spectacular show. The Duniye Spa features organic compounds and holistic treatments; while all requisite tropical trappings are, of course, on the cards.
