Naladhu Maldives by Anantara in South Malé Atoll, Maldives

Naladhu Maldives by Anantara is the hotelier’s most intimate Maldivian property – “Naladhu” means “beautiful island,” and the description is modest considering what it offers. This is an island of personalization. Design a day retreat of spa therapies in the privacy of your own thatched Ocean House. Dine on a custom menu in the shade of a coconut grove. Whether you choose a villa or a two-bedroom residence, every wish will be catered to 24 hours a day.

The breeze rustles across the sundeck through the open-air setup of your villa. Walk across rich hardwood floors into your plunge pool and relax as breakfast is brought to you – maybe a fresh coconut and pineapple smoothie you can sip as you float. Take a walk on powder-white sand to lounge in your private cabana. Spend the afternoon soaking up rays on a traditional dhow. Unwind with a personal yoga, Pilates or guided meditation session as the sun sinks into the Indian Ocean.

We want to thank all team in Naladhu for the service and their attention to details, but specially we wish to give a big thank you to the person that was in charge of making our stay a dream: Shan, thanks a lot. We will be glad to see you again. Also, thanks to Ashis for his warm smile and for his caring at The Living Room. Thanks to Shan and Ashis we enjoyed everyday a wonderful sunset on the beach. And finally, our gratitude as well to Pop and Tom at the Thai restaurant, they were kind and attentive beyond expectations. Antonio&Alla

The first 4 nights we stayed in Anantara Dhighu. Our room was a sunset over water villa. It looked on to turquoise waters, was absolutely beautiful light, bright and airy. Steps took us right down in to the ocean-stunning! We saw many fish from our balcony, even a sting ray and turtle. Staying at Dhigu you can use the amenities and restaurants of the sister island Veli. We enjoyed the food in all of the restaurants (8?) The quality of the food was great and the service was always friendly and efficient. All amenities on Veli and Dhigu were very well maintained. Dhigu is more family orientated and Veli couples but really it was so easy to cross from one to the other (two minutes in a little boat) that you get the best of both worlds. Through Aquafanatics we booked two excursions and hired snorkels. We swam with turtles and dolphins (along with many other exotic, beautiful fish) Sightings aren't guaranteed but we must have seen up to 70-80 dolphins -an experience to treasure forever! Our last 4 nights we moved to Naladhu which was even more luxurious and peaceful. It's about 5 minutes from Dhigu in a little boat and is joined to Veli by a pontoon.The island only has 20 residences. We stayed in ocean villa 11. It was absolutely stunning with every amenity you could wish for : huge bed, bath with view to the pool out side, outdoor shower, indoor shower with steam room, swinging bed, table and chairs and view to the ocean! No access to the sea from here but a minutes walk took us to our own cabana, beds and shallow waters on the other side of the island. The whole experience from start to finish was delightful. Boblis organised our transfer over. Bibin met us at the other side. He is charming, informative , nothing was too much trouble. Sharippe and Sameer catered for our every need at the villa ...(does anyone ever sleep?) Naladhu's restaurant The Living Room was an exceptional experience. We could go at any time of the day. Every meal was superb. We loved having breakfast watching the hermit crabs and almost tame water hens. In the evening we enjoyed the Michelin star meals. The team were fantastic, friendly, knowledgable and so enthusiastic. Many thanks to Adnan, Boday, Abhi (I've forgotten someone, sorry !) and chef Nuwan. The wine tasting experience with Ankit was another treat not to be missed. Even our departure was memorable as were personally waved off and whisked to Male in the beautiful Nirvana. Thank you all for a truly unforgettable holiday...

We have just lived the most pleasant and luxury holiday! We will leave tomorrow evening this beautiful island with regrets that we have not satay longer! Usually we are excited to return home but now, we regret that we cannot stay a much longer period! Everything was much more than we have expected! Is one resort that you will find much, much more beautiful compared with web description and photos! You haft to be here to understand this! Is a luxury resort, very private, the people here will do their best to make you feel like a being a king and queen in paradise! Every natural desire for such a vacation is become reality! Regarding staff, first of all Haisam, our House-Master, receive a 10+ score from 10, from our part! He is a very nice guy, very friendly, who will make everything for you to feel in a perfect holiday! You will not see him, he will not disturb you, but he will be always at your door step to bring everything that you need! Also Sameer (Sam) has keep our house very, very clean and organized, also, without see him. All the people from the restaurant and from management (Bibi is a very nice guy and very good organized) are top of the top! Very good in what their do, honest, calm, happy and pleasant! We have stayed in an Ocean Pool Villa which is much more than in pictures! Very clean, everything at your hand, a spectaculars view to the ocean and to the sunrise! If the waves sound is not disturb you, can sleep with the door open and is great! The ocean terrace of the villa is perfect, we have eat breakfast each day here. The food is another strong positive point for this resort. A very good, tasty and variety of delicious food for breakfast and for dinner. You do not feel the need of a third meal during the day. In the villa you will find everything that you need. All the appliance (like banal socket adaptors or a binocular) to high tech Bose sound system and very modern TV (if you will need TV!). The pool is very nice for late afternoon refreshments or early morning physical activity. Bathroom is sensational, with external and indoor shower and everything that you need. Even toothbrush or shaving facilities. You may know that you don`t need to carry from home anything like this. The air conditioner is very good, the NesCaffee expressor was very used by us. Haisam refresh our coffee doses all the time. The mini-bar is complete, prices are not very high. We have not used the wine cellar because we are not alcohol drinker. But I have remarked that are present all the kind of wines: red, white, sparkling, old, new, etc What can I say about the beach?! We were in Greece (many places), Bahamas, Barbados, Spain, Portugal or France but nowhere a beach and water like this! Very thin and white sand, very blue, crystalline and warm water (25 Celsius dgr all days!) make you stay all the day to the beach. They have a very comfortable Beach Cabana for each Ocean Villa, where you can relax or even sleep if the sun is too strong for you. The services are great also here. Actually, wherever you are on the island, all you haft to do is to give a call to your House Master and your desire became reality! You will receive a mobile phone at the arrival with only one number – of the House Master. You can call him for breakfast, for taxi appointment to other island (Digu island for example or 2 small pristine island located 300-400 m from Naladhu), for dinner hour to the restaurant, for everything you need at the beach and so on. We are not divers, but we have had the chance to see many marine life from our ocean terrace! Including small baby sharks or very colorful fish. Over the island only the ocean waves are to be heard. No one and nothing will disturb you! If you are very tired and exhausted by the real life back home, a week here will be like tones of energy and months of usual resting time! I feel that after a week in beautiful Naladhu! A true one of the best 5 star resort from the world! Very good for couples, not recommended for small kids. Another very god thing: on the ocean terrace from the villa you will not feel the normal humidity from Maldive! A calm wind will make that! Evert day, all the day long! At finish of our holiday another very nice surprise: our plane is tomorrow at midnight. The Manager from Naladhu give us a very good offer for late check–out, until 21:00!! We have received another extra day for our holiday! In other resorts probably will not be the case or maybe you should pay for a complete day! Not here! The offer was very good financial. Below quarter of a full day price! In conclusion, if you will choose to come here you will not be disappointed! Much more, you will be very positive surprised! A big THANK`S to all the people from Naladhu for our holiday!!

From the moment we arrived at Naladhu by yacht (Nirvana) to smiles, clapping and Maldivian drums we knew we had discovered something beyond special. The private resort at Naladhu, offered us exactly what we wanted, a private getaway in a luxurious, very well appointed ocean house with the option to visit the sister islands of Veli and Dhigu to enjoy the many activities, spa and dining options (in addition to our very own Living Room restaurant on Naladhu). Our Villa (#5) had everything we wanted for our stay. The outdoor bathroom was wonderful and to shower under the stars at night, with palms swaying in a gentle ocean breeze is something that you just have to experience. The private infinity pool provided an option beyond the lagoon if we wanted to take a dip at night or wanted a small retreat from the sun. The day bed was a great touch for those days that you just want to lounge around and watch and listen to the waves. The room was maintained beautifully twice a day with complimentary fruits, water, tea and coffee with a bountiful mini fridge and wine bar. The spa treatments were out of this world. We tried one couples treatment on Veli (Sundari) and one on Dhigu (Anantara Spa), and both were different and enjoyable experiences. The Ayurvedic treatments at Sundari will relax and revitalize you beyond belief. Each of the themed restaurants we ate at produced some amazing culinary delights. However, when it came to the overall dining experience between the food, atmosphere and service, it was our very own Living Room restaurant that impressed us the most. Whether set menus with paired wines, a la carte, or a shisha experience before bed, this place became our second home. With all that said, Naladhu would not be the location it is without a magnificent team of dedicated and genuinely caring people both in front and behind the scenes. Although we did not get to interact with as many staff as we wanted, there were a few that will be memorable for both of us. Aslam, our House Master was a step a head of us for the entire stay with suggestions for activities and dining options. He gracefully took care of our special needs (gluten free options) at all the restaurants and ensured we were taken care of each day to include a marvelous gluten free chocolate cake that the kitchen graciously prepared for us as part of our welcome. We opted to use our complimentary dinner on Valentine’s Day and Aslam ensure a small piece of beach was transformed into a romantic setting with torches, palms and a bouquet of flowers. The local Maldivian style dishes were fantastic in which Aslam served and took care of us personally. It was magical. Thank you so much for making our Honeymoon so special! Abdulla, our House Boy. You made the room so inviting for us each day and evening. Thank you so much for being attentive to detail and making our stay so enjoyable. We loved how you decorated the bed for arrival and valentines days with flowers and towel swans. The prepared baths also with flowers were beautiful and heavenly relaxing. Adnan and Boday, our Living Room Wait Staff. Thank you both for making each morning breakfast a special event and getting our days of to such a great start were we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Both our dinners were made great as well with not only wonderful food but also your attentive service touch. Thank you! Ankit, Abhi and Logo who provided us with delectable Wines and Shisha. Abhi served as our Sommelier during our paired wine dinner event and Ankit imparted his Sommelier knowledge and experience during a private Wine Tasting event, thank you so much for opening our eyes and palates to some fantastic wines. Logo...stars, a fantastic prepared shisha and a great conversation about India, thank you! To a team of wonderful people who seem to have magic in their hands: Beau who met us upon arrival and put us at ease with a relaxing neck massage, who also showed us around the Dhigu spa and the rest of the island and made us at home, Khob Kuhn Krab! Nopia, Susan, Brij and Telma...thank you for providing us with two fantastic spa experiences, a romantic couples chocolate spa and an Ayurvedic Massage. Brij, additionally, thank you for helping my wife with some lower back pain, you provided some very useful treatment and yoga tips for us to use going forward. Our review would not be complete without mentioning, Bibin. Thank you for greeting us upon our arrival and taking the time to ask for feedback throughout our stay. You are extremely lucky to be able to manage a team of outstanding people on Naladhu on a daily basis with such phenomenal weather. ;) Thank you all! Richard & Sandra

Pure relaxation, pure experience to remember. Every need catered for and then some. We spent 4 days in Dighu and 4 days in Naladhu. Snorkelling from both islands was amazing. The bikes on Dighu were a lovely touch, just pick them up and ride to the gym or the villa. The accommodation on Dighu (overwater sunset villa) had amazing views. The accommodation (ocean house) and privacy on Naladhu was something else and the food on Naladhu was beyond compare. The service, cleanliness, curtesy of the staff, standard of accommodation...Complete luxury in everything.
