Milaidhoo The Island Of Private Heavens
The tiny unspoiled island of Milaidhoo in Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is taking shape of a contemporary but culture obsessed resort that has 51 luxury villas with private pool. The overwater Signature Restaurant & Lounge resembles ancient sailboats with coconut palm on cabin roof. It comes with mast and sail as if ready to depart. Despite the look it is a fixed structure, it would be a little silly if you approach to hire one for a day trip.
Resorts in Baa Atoll enjoys easy access to Hanifaru Bay which is regarded as world’s best spot for whale sharks and manta rays. The season starts in May and last through November. Hanifaru Bay is one of the few sites filmed by National Geographic Channel in the Maldives.
Getting to Milaidhoo Island takes 30 minutes by scenic seaplane flight from Male’ International Airport. Dharavadhoo domestic airport is in close proximity of 15 minutes from Male’ airport and another 15 minutes by speedboat from Dharavadhoo to Milaidhoo.
Nearest local island is Kamadhoo which is home to about 420 residents. Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru is the closest resort.
The island has a rich house reef within 50 metres and you could easily excess from the beach. The watersports and dive centre will come fully equipped to let you discover underwater beauty of Baa Atoll. Snorkeling is also a good exercise but you often don’t notice it as you are captivated by amazing sea life. One you are back on the island it would be perfect to try out a spa treatment. Otherwise head to one of the three restaurants, opt for your favourite dishes or try out new a gourmet dish.
If you wake up for the sunrise it is a good time to kick off your day with something for your physical fitness. The spa has a yoga and meditation pavilion if you like desire.
Barefoot informality is your dress code whilst indulging in heaven. Everywhere on the island you could see nature’s bliss. Milaidhoo is the ultimate destination that blends creative architecture with natural elements of heavenly Maldives. Hospitality that is heart felt in such a setting creates moments of intense romance.
This is a no-infant island that only welcomes 9 years and above.
