Not just another five star resort in the Maldives, at Milaidhoo, they like to do things differently: it’s called reinvented luxury. They don’t think of their guests as holidaymakers but as storywriters, crafting their dream holiday, and this is where your story of a small island begins.
Opened in November 2016, Milaidhoo is a boutique luxury resort in the Baa Atoll UNESCO biosphere reserve, close to Hanifaru Bay, 126km north west of Male. Perfect for nature lovers as their own coral reef, which encircles the island, is a protected area and noted as an outstanding snorkelling and diving site in its own right. This tiny beautiful island, abundant with tropical greenery, measures just 300m by 180m and is fringed by soft deep white sand beaches.

IN THE HEART OF NATURE
Here you’ll watch dolphins play on the surface of the turquoise ocean or visit Hanifaru Bay where – in season – manta rays, and whale sharks bask in the shallow warm waters of this UNESCO world biosphere reserve. Here you’ll snorkel our house reef alongside turtles, colourful tropical fish or maybe even a passing friendly shark. Or take a traditional Maldivian sailing boat and head off into the far horizon, exploring coral reefs and deserted islands, and only coming home when you want to.
Laze by the infinity pool or do nothing but chill out on our beach and leave the busy-stuff to the hermit crabs and herons. Take their big game fishing boat for an exhilarating catch-and-release trip or learn from our local fishermen the traditional art of handline fishing. Dive deep into the ocean and discover the mysteries and beauty below the surface or help their marine biologist identify endangered wildlife.
Barefoot and In Love Beach Wedding
This is the classic, ultra-romantic tropical wedding on the beach in the late afternoon amid archways of tropical greenery and a wedding pergola.
Starlight, Starbright Candlelit Wedding
Candlelit ceremony on the beach which starts just after sunset, as the couple take their vows witnessed by the millions of stars in the Milky Way whose twinkling lights are echoed by the flickering glow of candles in the sand.
Just You and Me Deserted Sandbank Wedding
Escape to a spot that’s just a dot on the map and say your vows on a tiny deserted sandbank surrounded by the splendour of the seas.
Love Floats Boat Wedding
Take to the ocean and marry on board one of our beautiful boats. Choose from a traditional wooden sailing dhoni or our yacht.
This ocean country stocked with plentiful fish calls to anyone with the soul of a fisherman. The big game fishing boat can take you out to the high seas looking for wahoo, sailfish, swordfish, giant trevally or marlin for the catch and release programme.
Alternatively, let the guides show you the local way to fish by hand from a traditional Maldivian fishing boat.
