Being here for a week stay. The villa is very comfortable. And the Snorkeling is super super! Staff are all very nice and very helpful. Especially the Kid Club, my son loves it so much, Definitely worth your money. The beach is not so great. Many riffs and hard to walk around. The pillow are so good. I really want... More

It was our honeymoon & we had a pleasant stayed. Our snorkel & diving experience at the coral reef was awesome. It was the most beautiful that we have seen so far.

I’m really not a rare traveler and this was our 5th trip to Maldives up to now – but I could really consider Island Hideaway to be one of the best places I’d ever been. We (me and my husband) spent 10 wonderful days on the island and they fled as one. Nature is amazing, vegetation – flourishing, house reef... More

Island Hideaway is the perfect combination of luxe and clean. We don't like 5 star hotels to be all shiny shiny, this one is modern Maldivian - all sand, white and wood tones. And very luxurious. Yes it's expensive, but it's the Maldives - what do people expect to pay for ultimate luxury, amazing service in the middle of the... More

Despite a beautiful surroundings , amazing nature, a great place for snorkeling this resort is far away from being " a palace ".

It looked like nobody were trained specially not in the kitchens, 3 restaurants... More
