Naladhu Private Island Maldives was named the best island resort in the Indian Ocean four years in a row and in the top 10 Best Resorts in the World by Condé Nast Traveler 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards.





Naladhu, meaning ‘beautiful little island’ in the local Dhivehi language, is a homely Maldivian hideaway. The discovery of renowned hospitality entrepreneur, the late Dr. Ibrahim Maniku encountered this exclusive island gem of unparalleled beauty back in 2001.

Known as one of the fathers of the Maldives, the Malé-born doctor and founder of numerous resorts in the Maldives, helped many locals create a better life for themselves and their families. It was with his vision to create a wellness retreat for guests to reconnect both to themselves and to nature, that his dream of Naladhu Private Island as it is today, came to life. A place where anything can be curated- from dining to wellbeing retreats, Naladhu would always ensure to exceed its existing glory.

From the idyllic blue waters and wondrous white sands to the island’s indigenous flora, every detail has been taken care of. Each of the 20 Maldives houses is named after one of the local plants or flowers, paying homage to the natural surroundings in which they’re found.

With the help of passionate horticulturalist, Deva, the island now boasts dozens of indigenous species, including a rare coconut palm, its fruit much smoother and sweeter than most, an apt tribute to the island itself.

Each guest is welcomed as if they were at home, by their personal storyteller, known as a ‘Kuwaanu’. Much more than simply a butler, these local guides will help each guest to curate the perfect bespoke escape.

Every one of the 20 Maldives villas is designed to give guests the feeling of returning to a place they’ve always known, the sense of familiarity and comfort mixed seamlessly with the sense of a new adventure where anything is possible. It was in fact the arrival of a Middle Eastern royal which inspired the creation of Naladhu’s Two Bedroom Residence, a place which can accommodate the grandeur and requirements by one of such stature, and from then, Finifenma, meaning The Rose, the queen of all flowers, was born.

For the team who make Naladhu Private Island the special place it is, they take pride in it as if it were their own home, and to those who visit, it is forever an unforgettable escape.
