Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa Maldives is an exclusive all-suite resort for those who demand genuine luxury and expect only the best. Space and privacy is a hallmark at Hideaway which has some of the largest beachfront villas in the Maldives. Opened in 2005, and widely updated in a US$50m renovation in 2014, Hideaway has 103 extremely spacious villas, all (except seven Sunset Beach Villas) with their own private pool or Jacuzzi. The 57 contemporary style over-water villas stand on stilts over the lagoon while the 46 beachfront villas have a timeless, classic Maldives feel, each with its own private beach and hidden away among lush tropical gardens for complete privacy. Hideaway’s island host (butler) service is near legendary, ensuring that a dream vacation with exemplary service is a reality. Famous for its outstanding double coral reef that brings a vibrant underwater world to just a few meters from its shores, Hideaway is a tropical paradise of long stretches of soft white sand beaches and a warm, crystal-clear turquoise lagoon. Only a 75-minute seaplane flight from the capital city, Male, Hideaway is also easily reached by more exclusive transport: its marina offers a berth for yacht owners while those arriving by private jet can land at Hanimaadhoo International Airport (HAQ), which is an easy 25-minute speedboat journey from Hideaway.

On our second stay at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa in January our nine months old boy accompanied us and it was another great stay with a lot of unforgettable memories. Again, everything was organized perfectly. The transfer was smooth and the welcoming has felt like we came home to our little hideaway... This time we have chosen the Deluxe Beach Residence, so that our little son can enjoy the white and bright sand. The villa was as convenient, spacious and comfortable as the Deluxe Water Villa, we lived in two years ago. Everybody from the staff was courteous again and everyone was really caring for the wellbeing of our baby. In every situation, you are feeling that babies/children are really welcome to this high-grade resort. Often it is the little things, that matter and HBR is absolutely setting the standards in regards to that. So once again, many thanks, have a good restart and we will definitely come back!

Hotel's Favorite
I already wrote this review on another website but I feel that I should also write it here to make sure people know how great our visit was! We went o Hideaway on our honeymoon and loved everything about our stay at the resort. The staff were truly exceptional and even the smallest details were looked after making our stay extra special. We loved having bikes to roam around the island, our fishing trip was super fun and the local island day trip was also special and educational. A special mention to the food and beverage team who were all so welcoming and friendly to us - they really made us feel at home. From the lovely welcoming smile at breakfast every morning to the waiters who always made sure our glasses were full. There were a few staff members who we felt made our stay even more special; Ajith the cocktail master at Meeru bar gave us some amazing memories and nothing was too troublesome for him - he is a truly exceptional star and even stayed open to the early hours just to keep us entertained. Budi was super, he showed us his magic tricks and has a memory like an elephant (remembering every cocktail we ordered and how we like them!). Our butler Mugey helped us out countless times and works so hard, he helped correct an issue we had with a fishing trip and we ended up with our best memories because of the work he put in. Finally Ibrahim at Samsara made us feel very special, thinking of extra things to make our visits more comfortable. Samsara restaurant has fantastic food - we especially loved the Indian menu. We were very happy with our visit and would love to come back in the future. Also - we can highly recommend the all inclusive platinum plus package - unlike other resorts you have so many options you don't feel restricted at all.

I don’t know where to start if I’m honest, this place exceeded all expectations, but I’ll try to cover all features. This was our honeymoon and from the jaw dropping welcome on arrival on this paradise island, to arriving at our ocean villa, or travelling around the insanely gorgeous place- every inch of this resort is brilliant. The island is like a picture postcard- the sea needs to be seen to be believed, the beaches are flawless and the vegetation & wildlife are just unbelievable. I don’t want to repeat other reviews, but we were here for two weeks and were constantly taken aback by the beauty everywhere. Also I was so impressed that we felt we had the resort to ourselves a lot of the time, ob an island with full occupancy. The food was remarkable, and there was a really great choice, our favourite was the fresh fish and also the Indian restaurant (the curries were some of the best we have tasted. I’ve saved the best for last- the staff. Simply incredible from start to finish. The service standards were impeccable, and everyone was so genuine and friendly. I want to shout out a few people individually- Nargiza, our personal helper was simply brilliant with everything, so warm and kind. Also we had such good times with the bar team, we had a real laugh almost every night, the drinks and service were second to none- Ajith, Shifaz, Sunil & Mathie were so good- we hope that we can return to share cocktails with them again. All in all this place is exquisite and we would rush back in a heartbeat- a first class island!

The location itself is paradise, white sand, crystal clear water, bright sunny skies, tropical plants, shallow seas, everything you think of as a ‘tropical paradise’. We stayed in this resort for 4 nights. 2 nights we were in Beach villa with spunge pool and other 2 nights we were in water villa.We had taken All inclusive plan, whhich included our all meals and umlimited alcoholic & Non alocoholic drinks anywhere in this resort. Being vegetarian it's the most tough to get the Vegetarian food in Maldives. Before booking this Hideaway beach resort, We had searched many resorts who can fulfil our all kind of requirements from hospitality to food and everything. We were in search of tremendous property for our family vacation and finally we ended our search on Hideaway beach resort & spa and booked it for our family holiday. We booked this resort in December for our holidays in Mid January,2020. Front office staff Marcel Petzhold was continuously in touch of us regarding our booking, our choices, which number villa we would like to stay, what kind cuisines we would like to have during our entire stay. He was quick and very courteous in giving replies of any query we had in our mind and i came to know at that point only that we are going to have our fabulous time in Hideaway beach resort & spa. Now the real turning point comes why i loved hospitality of this resort very much, In first week of January my dad was diagnosed with Facial paralysis and Doctor announced that he is unfit to travel anywhere till next one month. We were very much in dilemma that what to do now, as next week we were departing to maldives for our family holidays. I mailed these all scenarios to front office staff Marcel Petzhol asap and boyyy i was literally shocked hearing his reply. He was kind enough to offer us the dates in Mid february without any cancellation charges and he kept in his mind that Marriage anniversary of my parents is on this date and he was kind enough to offer us the same dates. So, when my dad is recovered from disease he can enjoy anniversary in resort. I was very much happy seeing all this happening and at this point i was very much clear that this resort owes my standing ovation and being in touch with Marcel for 2 months through mail i was very much eager to meet him. And finally the day came, we departed for this resort in maldives from our hometown in India. Resort itself offers trasnportation from MALE Airport till resort in their respective packages. Flight from Male to Hanimaadhoo takes around 1 hour and from airport they have their private yacht which takes 20 minutes to reach resort. After tiring flight, in yacht we were welcomed with champagne and rainbow fruit skewers. We checked in around 8pm in the evening in resort and we were warmly welcomed by General Manager Chris with welcome drinks and light snacks. Here we were introduced with out buttler named Zareer, he was very much attentive and he knew all our requirments from Marcel to make our stay comfortable and peaceful. As per our prefernces Marcel had already kept Our villas numbered 113 & 114 for us. My mind was literally blown Upon entering into beach villa, it was really big villa with small kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom & open to sky jacuzzi. In outside area there was small plunge pool literally next to our private beach. Villa was Huge, spanking clean and very much spacious. Bed in bedroom was in direction of the beach. so when you wake up in morning you get beautiful view of roaring sea from your bed. Marcel had booked our first night's dinner in Samsara restaurant, which serves some classic India vegetarian dishes. Here chef Shriyal, who's head chef there understood us & all requirments and made all dishes according to our requirments and test. Kudos to chef Shriyal for putting this much efforts behind each guest. Our breakfast was in matheefaru restaurant where again chef Shriyal came to our rescue and surprised us with pretty good and tasty Masala dosas with many other vegetarian dishes, this resort which is located on this island is quite big. We were used to roam in whole resort after having breakfast and mornings with fresh air was quite energetic and full of postivity. As sun rises it gets humid there, so in noon time you'll find less guests with bicycles in resort. For lunch we were used to go in Miru baar which served some classic Italian dishes, which were lipsmacking good. Desserts at miru bar were super tasty. Suma helped us in this restaurant choosing what Italian vegetarian dishes we can have, she was very much courteous and helpful. Our other 2 nights were in Water villa and again Marcel had kept most beautiful villas numbered 225 & 226 for our family. These both villas are located at the end of the all water villas. So, from this 2 villas you get fabulous views of ocean wihtout any obstructions. Water villas were huge with swimming pool and stairs going direct to the sea. it was neat & clean. We celebrated my parent's anniversary in this villa and whole hideaway staff did really hard efforts to make that day memorable for all of us by decorating our room when we went for dolphin watching, complimentary cake & surprise beach dinner on Miru bar was specially organised for us. On last night we were craving for our traditonal Gujarati food, we are from Gujarat which is located in west side of India and we have our local cuisine here and we told the same to chef Shriyal that we want to have Gujarati food for dinner and boyy chef shriyal told us that leave it on me and dinner menu will be surprise from him. He had prepared subji of cauliflower with Chapatis, Khichdi & Kadhi. That last night's meal was so satisfying added with proper Gujarati touch. Food in this resort was impeccable at every turn with top notch hospitality provided by each and every staff member. No words can quite describe our stay in this beautiful resort. it was 4 nights of pure indulgence staying at this resort. This resort makes you feel like you are part of their family while spoiling you silly at every moment. Our butler Zareer and all the staff took such great care of us during our stay that it was really sad to leave. But, well as they say... There are no goodbyes but only see you laters... Can’t wait to head back in this beautiful property. Thank you very much to chris and his team special thanks to Marcel Petzhold, Zareer, Suma & Chef Shriyal for making our maldivian holidays most memorable.
