In an archipelago like the Maldives, with 1196 islands in 26 natural Atolls, one surely should be able to find a tiny little hideaway of one’s own, shouldn’t they? The Island Hideaway certainly agrees, and has created a luxury boutique resort on a privately-owned, uninhabited virgin island that guests can call all their own. It’s so remote that not only a 45-minute hopper flight from Male does the trick, for, after you land, a speedboat awaits for the remaining 20 minutes of the journey. You have to really want to get here, but when you do, you’ll understand.

The entire island is your own private domain here, surrounded by a shallow waist-deep lagoon with some of the most crystal-clear waters you’ll ever see. Here, nature blends with luxury and privacy…rooms evoke a rustic charm with their custom made handcrafted furniture and magical little architectural touches and colors designed to overwhelm the senses, all purposely set quite far from one another delivering private havens of serenity and peace. If all of that relaxation in the room isn’t enough, don’t fret- there’s a signature Mandara Spa on property, and you know what that means- pure spa luxury in every way possible. Ultra-romantic dining options, butler service, and one of the world’s most stunning beaches complete this circle of absolute perfection. Far, far away… but far from forgettable…
