    Our opinion

    "A luxury boutique hotel with spacious houses and an elegant, home from home feel".

    Hotel description

    Nadhu is reached by speedboat, just 35 minutes from Male, and is a small, ultra-luxury resort with just 19 extremely spacious houses. It exudes an atmosphere of classical luxury and privacy, with the style of furnishings and service reminiscent of quintessential luxury, colonial-styled interiors, whitewashed framed houses, on the beach and in the ocean, Indian Ocean elegance personified, delicate rugs, teak furniture, books, writing desk at your disposal and a housemaster to make arrangements for you. The elegant ‘houses’ have 300 square metres of space and are designed to be a comfortable home whilst on holiday. At the centre of your house is your own swimming pool and just a few steps beyond the Indian Ocean or sandy beach. Dining can be in the privacy of your own house, organised by your housemaster, or in the island’s Living Room, where you can enjoy the fine food created by the chef, flavours of Indian, Thai, Maldivian and Western. If you do venture outside the confines of your house in the daytime, there is plenty to discover: yoga on the beach at sunrise, cookery lessons or listening to the island’s storyteller. Naladhu is close enough to Male and other islands for visits for shopping, dining at other hotels and playing tennis on a nearby island. The dive centre is at nearby Anantara Dhigu, fishing and sailing can be arranged. Watersports are available and kayaks are supplied for the lagoon and windsurfing lessons are offered from April until October. Spa treatments are available in the privacy of your house or at the Over-water spa at Dhigu or the Garden Spa at Veli at nearby island resorts. Naladhu is a boutique, luxury resort, low-key and private, discreet and elegant. A welcome throwback to cosy creature comforts.
