Not just another five star resort in the Maldives, at Milaidhoo, things are done differently: it’s called reinvented luxury. Opened in November 2016, Milaidhoo 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 the resort's own coral reef, which encircles the island, is a protected area and noted as an outstanding snorkelling and diving site in its own right. This tiny beautiful island, abundant with tropical greenery, measures just 300m by 180m and is fringed by soft deep white sand beaches.
Set in the UNESCO world biosphere, Milaidhoo Maldives is in the heart of the Baa Atoll and is reached by a scenic 35-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport (MLE). Seaplane transfers only operate during daylight hours. Should you arrive in Male after 15.30, a 15-minute domestic to flight to Dharavandhoo airport can be booked followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to Milaidhoo.
The above-mentioned seaplane flight will have other hotel guests on board. If you’d like to charter a seaplane for your own private transfer, a private seaplane can be arranged.
Welcome aboard the only restaurant in the world set on a boat in a lagoon featuring gourmet dishes of inspired island cuisine from the Maldivian Spice Route.
The story begins over 5,000 years ago when The Maldives became a key port of call for traders sailing from Indonesia and India to Arabia with cargoes of cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, cloves, ginger and pepper. The Maldivians bartered coconuts, sun-dried fish, cordage, cowrie shells and sails woven from coconut fibre for spice, rice, ceramics and silks. Locally-made cargo boat...
This beachfront grill is where you’ll find superb meats and freshly caught local fish and seafood, simply cooked and beautifully presented. You can dine barefoot on the sand in a private beachfront pavilion, or inside the grill for a fantastic view of the show kitchens.
If you’ve ever wanted your own private chef to cook for you, here’s your chance. At this chef’s table, a team of chefs are ready to cook up a perfect dinner, just the way you want it, right before your eyes at a teppanyaki-style table. For inspiration, a choice of set menus is offered, as well as an a la carte menu to pick and choose from. Open for dinner daily from 19.00 until 22.30. Can be opened for lunch on request.
Here’s the tropical breakfast you've always dreamed of: sitting on the deck by the ocean as the team delivers wave after wave of treats to your table. For lunch and dinner the style remains casually comfortable with international dishes perfectly presented from a la carte menu. Here, the key words are fresh, flavourful and friendly.
Here's the place to chill out and fall in love with the resort's infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. When hunger calls, it's right here with a tempting drinks list of the freshest of fresh juices, infused waters, cocktails and light meals, such as gourmet pizzas from our wood-fired oven; bento boxes; fresh salads; sandwiches etc. The fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down; find yourself a sun lounger and watch the area transform into a laid-back chillout lounge.
It’s time to pop a cork or two. Whether you choose to stop off here before dinner, or leave this as a post-postprandial treat or perhaps an afternoon eye-opener is up to you. Chill out in the superb cool temperatures of this Wine Room with a flight of wines and canapes, or ask the resort's sommelier to organise a specialist wine tasting for you. Open for private bookings.
