Milaidhoo Island

Located about 35 minutes by seaplane, or a 15-minute domestic flight plus a 15-minute speedboat ride, from Malé airport, this stunning small island sits in the remote Baa Atoll. I is the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve that’s inhabited by dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks.

The house reef lies close to the beach and, as a marine-protected reef, is known for its excellent snorkelling and diving. For dining, Ba’theli makes an impression – set overwater with a spectacular design inspired by traditional dhonis, open for dinner and offering island-inspired cuisine. There’s also a main all-day dining restaurant at the water’s edge and a beach grill with private outdoor beach huts for two, intimate teppanyaki dining and a wine cellar. The spa is on the sunrise side of the island, with a yoga pavilion for sunrise yoga sessions.

Stylish, light and airy, with 180-degree panoramas, the large villas all have private pools and an emphasis on outdoor living. With thatched roofs, bespoke furniture and a contemporary design that’s still in harmony with the surroundings, these are some of the most beautiful villas in the Maldives. The majority are Water Pool Villas, with a curved infinity pool on the deck featuring an overwater gazebo/daybed and steps straight into the ocean. If you prefer to be on land, Beach Pool Villas have a spacious deck with day bed and oval-shaped pool fronting the white sands. For the ultimate in luxury, opt for one of the residences, where you’ll have your very own butler, private chef and outdoor cinema.
