“Paradise and perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

I'll keep it brief because I'm sure it's all been said before about Naladhu. The island is out of this world, peaceful, beautiful, convenient transfer by boat from Male which is about 40 minutes. My main reason for leaving this review is to praise Andrea and his fantastic team, especially Haisam. During our 10 day stay we rarely had to ask for anything, everything was pre-empted by Andrea's team, in our room, in the restaurant and chilling on the beach. They are knowledgable, helpful, Proffesional, genuinely enthusiastic and friendly. We can strongly recommend taking the private cruise, for a few hours ideally sunrise or sunset. Andrea thank you so much for looking after us during our stay, you and your team are truly amazing! We're coming back in November 2014 even though our stay in December was to be our last in the Maldives as we felt we have exhausted all it had to offer, how wrong we were! Nick and Stephanie xxx

Room Tip: If you love the force, sight and sound of the sea, take an Ocean room.

The resort is truly exceptional offering something for all type of needs and interests. Staff is incredibly high standards and do try their best to make you feel at your best there. When we go there we need full relax. Naladhu is the romantic quiet place for a couple to recharge. On a beautiful beach we are almost always on our own (most people do water activities outside the main beach) . There is easy and free access to other 2 Islands each offering different and good services. Other islands do not have access to Naldhu as they keep it top of the range. Beautiful easy snorkelling . Food is provided over different restaurants and islands. The Naladhu one is excellent and the Thai on a bridge connecting two islands is also good and spectacular. Whilst Naladhu is ideal for romantic couples, we wind it not suitable to family with noisy and active kids. The other two islands of the same resort are better suited and equipped. Majority of guests are and remain couples at Naladhu. We returned to Naladhu 4 consecutive years and we expect to return next years. Most of staff is long term and each time we return they remember who we area and what we like.

Room Tip: There are Ocean houses (which we use)and beach houses. The ocean houses are beautiful, have an alloc...

We had the amazing privilege of returning to Naladhu this April with friends. One again our experience was unparalleled. A massive 'thank you' to island manager Andrea, house master Sharippe, Jessica and Jayesh from The Living Room and all the staff from Anantara who went out of their way to ensure our holiday was perfect. Our children are begging to return!

I spent hours searching for the perfect hotel in the Maldives to celebrate my husbands 40th with friends and our family . . . . and I believe that we most definitely found it. This was the most relaxing and perfect holiday. The accommodation was outstanding, the service from all the staff was impeccable, the little touches everywhere you looked, were appreciated and the food was fantastic. I know that there are still many more islands in the Maldives to discover - but we have found paradise and will most certainly be going back to Naladhu!

Room Tip: We LOVED the ocean villa and sleeping to the sound of the sea lapping against the rocks. Magic!

We want to share with all of you crowding positive emotions and unforgettable impressions of the hotel stay in the Maldives. We love to travel and have visited quite many beautiful places of our planet, while demanding to treat high quality level of hotel services . For this trip we have chosen Maldives and specificly hotel”Naladu”, advised by our travel company "Persona Grata " from Kiev (leaders Osyka Dmitry and Tatiana ) and «tripadvisor».
The Reality has far exceeded all our bold expectations. The combination of lush tropical nature of the island with a variety of bright colors of the warm Indian Ocean, fascinating underwater world and most importantly with a sincere , friendly attitude and attention to guests of the hotel from the workers , combined with the highest level of their professional qualifications , made our stay on the island one of the most memorable in our lives. It was very nice, helpful and convenient for us to meet a remarkable Russian-speaking girl Lisa among the hotelworkers. Thanks to her high professionalism , attention and sincerity, our holiday events booking on the island felt nothing to worry about. And all that was proposed and implemented with the team of the hotel, delivered a tremendous pleasure and satisfaction.
Always full and enjoyable was our communication with the main hotel manager Andrea .To Any of your wishes , requests Andrea quickly and efficiently found solutions . He is a very interesting person and a true professional.
Also worth noting is the high level of the hotel's cuisine , especially cooking seafood.
Our vacation , thanks to the team of the “Naladu " hotel , especially Lisa , as well as manager ANDREA manager , employee Nadeem, Ali turned out really magical.
Level of the hotel meets the highest professional standards and refined to date. Many thanks to the team of the hotel. We will try to come back more than once in this fabulous state.
We Recommend this place to anyone who wants an unforgettable experience and touch to a fairytale .

Just came back from a short 2 night get away . This is our second visit to Anantara last time we stayed at Dighu which was wonderful . But the Naladhu is just perfect ! Staying at Ocean House 3 was a true paradise experience, totally private and luxurious.
The island is small but what made up for that was the ability to move easily by a shuttle boat between the 3 Ansntara resorts so there is much to do and enjoy many restaurants.
Breakfast was included in the rate and can be served at any time if the day at the house , which was a great bonus as we were catching up on sleep !

Our house master Shareef was wonderful and attentive to our every need . Thank you Shareef ! You made our stay even more relaxing .

Just one little suggestion which our house pool was heated it's too cold to swim in .

Hope to come back soon !

Dear ummbuoor,

Thank you so much for your kind and wonderful review.
Our Ocean houses are very private and luxurious, truly being your home away from home.
Shareef will be very pleased to read your comments, as he has enjoyed being able to look after you and ensure your holiday would be more relaxing.
The House pool, as a part of the concept, is not heated to be a cool down on sunny days, given that the sea is generally very warm, but thank you for pointing that out to us.
We truly happy that your stay felt like a paradise experience, and we looking forward to see you back in our beautiful island.
