The 19 private villas of the Naladhu Resort hotel in the heart of the Maldives archipelago are spread over the length of the beach on the small island of Velinghandu. This luxury establishment with its wonderfully exotic charm offers its guests the unique experience of an intimate retreat on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Sprung from the imagination of Maldivian designer Mohammed Shafiq, the hotel’s rooms are minimalist and possess every possible modern comfort. The beach houses offer guests an exclusive view of the landscape and cast a romantic veil over this little piece of heaven on earth. In a cozy atmosphere, the spa salons celebrate the curative virtues of Maldivian culture. To prolong this gentle journey, a romantic yacht cruise on the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean is highly recommended.


The south Malé atoll in the Maldives consists of several islands, each one more idyllic than the other. Very popular with tourists throughout the world, this atoll attracts a great many lovers of the sea who want to take advantage of the fantastic diving sites as well as the diversity of aquatic activities offered by the atoll’s island-hotels. Diving is especially recommended in this region since the ocean depths are rich in multi-colored tropical fish, manta rays, turtles, and for those fortunate enough to come across them, dolphins.

The south Malé atoll is also renowned as an excellent surfing spot, thanks to the east winds that are fairly strong at times, which is not the case for all of the Maldives atolls. Kite surfing, a sport in which the surfer is pulled by a boat, and thanks to parachute sail, is lifted above the ocean for a few seconds, has grown in popularity with many tourists in search of new and powerful sensations. And it’s in this region that the Anantara hotel group decided to open some of its most luxurious hotels.

A home very very far from home

Located on the island of Velinhandu Huraa, in the southern Malé atoll, the hotel Naladhu offers exceptional comfort. No less than 19 private houses are available to guests looking for a calm and intimate retreat. The owners wanted guests to feel that they were in their second home, but one in a much more exotic environment. There are two categories of houses, the Beach House and the Ocean Villa. They are identical in terms of comfort, decoration and equipment. They all have luxurious bathrooms with outdoor showers, L’Occitane en Provence bathtubs and bathroom products, warmly decorated rooms, a living room area and a large terrace with chaise lounges for gentle afternoon naps. In addition, each house has its own private butler. The Beach Houses face the sea and look out onto the lagoon with direct access to the beach. The Ocean villas overlook the turquoise blue Indian Ocean, with a breathtaking view over the horizon.

The fully equipped fitness center has qualified trainers who offer guests pure moments of relaxation thanks to the wide range of available treatments. More romantic guests can even take advantage of the horizon, the hotel’s yacht, for a day’s cruise or a candlelight dinner. Meals can be taken in the houses or in the center of the hotel, in the Living Room restaurant. Guests can also choose the varied number of hotel complex restaurants on the neighboring islands, the Anantara Dhigu and Veli.

Naladhu in Maldivian means, “pretty island”, and it certainly merits its name. The Maldivian designer, Mohammed Shafia designed the villas of this extraordinary site.
