New luxury resort to set the standard for a private Maldivian getawayBoasting the luxury of space and privacy across one of the largest islands in the Maldives, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa has officially reopened its doors and is welcoming guests to the crescent-shaped Dhonakulhi Island in the north of the Maldives. In ode to its name, the five star island resort promises to be ‘a true hideaway’.
Following a $50million investment by Maldivian owning company, Dhonakulhi Investments Pvt Ltd, the whole island has undergone a redevelopment including an extensive renovation of the property; previously known as Island Hideaway. The resort offers guests their own private cocoon of space across the island’s expansive 297,000 square metres. Home to the first fully-functional marina in the Maldives, due to its unique reef system, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa enjoys one of the most desirable locations in the Indian Ocean for exploring the surrounding aquamarine waters.
Featuring 103 superbly generous villas which are amongst the largest in the Maldives, guests can choose from eight different categories of accommodation, ranging from beachfront to garden and family residences, as well as the new addition of 50 over-water villas that sit over the sparkling blue lagoon. Ensuring complete relaxation for guests, a personalised butler service is provided to anticipate and attend to all wishes and requests.
Carefully positioned amidst coconut groves and lush vegetation, the villas are designed to create the impression of a floating paradise. Inspired by the exotic, unspoiled landscape of Dhonakulhi Island, the villas combine tropical tones with contemporary touches with local Maldivian influences. Incorporating the latest high-tech amenities with handcrafted coconut and teak timber furnishings, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa takes a creative approach in the art of luxury living.
The island resort offers a wealth of wellness and sporting experiences, as well as a kid’s club to keep the little ones amused. Spa aficionados will adore the Hideaway Spa; one of the largest spas in the Maldives. The heavenly sanctuary is complete with a selection of lagoon spa villas to laze and lull in and offers a wide range of customised treatments to overwhelm senses.
Guests can indulge in an array of taste-infusing cuisine at the resort which boasts a selection of culinary options, ranging from contemporary à la carte dining, to the entertaining art of Teppanyaki-style cooking and intimate destination dining – the ultimate personalised dining experience.
Adventurous guests and nature-lovers who wish to explore the hidden wonders of the ocean can sail out on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni or on a high-speed jet ski to one of the nearby inhabited islands. Additional water-sports activities, including kite boarding, kayaking and wind surfing, are also available for all to enjoy. Located within the grounds of the resort are two full-sized tennis courts for guests who wish to enjoy their favourite sport on sunny days.
Characterised by its intimate ambience and remote location, the expansive island resort offers guests ‘a true hideaway’ to relax, rejuvenate and restore their well-being in complete privacy. Set against a beautiful backdrop of coconut groves, pristine white sands and turquoise waters, the island resort provides a tranquil retreat for those in search of an exotic getaway.
