“Don't waste your time and money going anywhere else...this is quite possibly the best in the Maldives”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

First of all, thank you Beatrice and Fazna - not only for your warmth but also you recommendation to experience Naladhu. Beatrice, you made our anniversary the best we have had by facilitating us. So thank you. Everything was perfect from the pre arrival communication for our anniversary to the anantara airport lounge, to the tropical reception on arrival.

Our first time with Anantara after having tried multiple luxury resorts and clearly it is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest. Although veli and dhigu are beautiful and luxurious, nothing can prepare you for the beauty of your pool villa at naladhu. The ultimate private island with all the luxuries you can imagine to the last detail. They have thought of everything. For anything else, you have the best staff on ground - enter Andrea the resort manager and Hassan our house master. Both focused on making us feel at home and were around whenever you need them. They go way further than the extra mile- they go the distance to make your stay perfect. I would also like to mention Deep rai at the living room who would go out if his way to make our breakfast requirements complete and provide us with impeccable service.

I can't possibly express in words the relaxation from this experience - our personal cabana, kayaks and of course sauna in room! Excellent access to all the other islands and great dining available at the other islands - but to be honest we didn't even want to or need to leave naladhu.

When making your next trip to the Maldives, spend a bit extra and do it right- Thailand, Malaysia and Bali don't come close to the beauty here and you should do it right to complement the experience. Stay at anantara naladhu and these guys will make you feel like royalty.

Room Tip: All the villas at naladhu are perfect.

Visited this resort in an off season. It was mostly raining but that didn't bother us. The villas are outstanding with its decoration and facilities. Very private villas where you can be secluded from the resort. Service is excellent. Chef and staff very welcoming. Highly recommended for couples. Food is fresh, mainly local seafood. Great and easy access to the islands around where there are some activities going on. This place is very exclusive with great pampering experience. Highly recommended!

Dear Zmardam,

Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback of your recent vacation to Naladhu Maldives,
We are pleased that you have had a great vacation on our beautiful island and enjoyed the privacy of our Villas with their unique style and decor.
Your positive feedback will be shared with all Service and Culinary team, which will be a great way to recognise their hard work and passion for what they do.
As mentioned by you, within the same lagoon lies our sister properties Anantara Dhigu & Veli, offering a great choice of excursions/activities as well as several dining options.
As guest in Naladhu, you can access both resorts, but Naladhu is accessed only by Naladhu guest or guest which made a dinner reservation, making it a very exclusive & pampering experience.
It was a pleasure to have you with us at Naladhu and we do look forward to welcome you in a near future.

Sunny Regards from our little Paradise!

I think its the best holiday in my life and the most expensive but it worth of every penny!

Its real paradise on earth. Everything - villa, restaurants, beach, environment, stuff... is the best

Special thanks to our housemaster Bibin. His kindness and responsiveness is perfect.
He always there when you need him, and you will never see him when you want privacy.

Room Tip: For more privacy take Ocean House with Pool.

Despite the not so good weather, we had a wonderful vacation - our villa was just excellent, with our private pool, 24 hour service, every detail is considered. Christmas and New Years eve dinners pleased with an original approach, we had dinner just on the beach, with fireworks. Diving is fantastic, service is great, food is delicious.

We stayed 7 precious days in Naladhu at Beach House #18 which faces the Lagoon and yet offers great privacy.
The house is simply wonderful and all its features are 5 stars.
The staff at the resort are simply wonderful and have a great disposition to make your holidays extra special plus carry a big smile all day long.
Being only a 30 mns boat ride from Male airport was a big positive for us. In this Anantara resort you can enjoy a great two spas, great food and a variety of water sports if you are into that.

Simply a beautiful place.

It makes our day receiving your review.
We are very delighted of reading you have enjoyed your stay in one of our wonderful beach house, thus able to take pleasure of the view onto the blue lagoon and it’s privacy.

The entire team is proud making our guest stay a beautiful experience.
As you say, Naladhu is located only a short boat ride from Male and having the 2 other great resorts nearby, it offers many options on food, activities and relaxation.

We very much look forward to welcome you back.

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...
