Travelers' Choice
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. Four restaurants and bars offer a world of fine dining including an excellent wine collection, and where the resort really stands out is in its tailor-made dining experiences. The spa is a true wellness haven with 12 private treatment suites, steam room and hair salon set in manicured gardens. For those who love to be active, two outdoor pools, the recreation centre with its gym, two tennis courts, beach volleyball court, as well as extensive watersports, fishing, diving and a range of excursions ensures there’s always something new to explore. Luxury travelers can expect more activities to come soon. A tennis academy by Nikolay Davydenko will open in November 2015. The Russian professional tennis player, who achieved a singles world ranking of 3, and his team will offer coaching clinics for all levels, from absolute beginner to professionals. Also opening in November 2015 is an over-water aqua park of floats, slides, water trampolines which will be complimentary to all guests.

Egg, Switzerland1 contribution
We have spent 11 nights in the Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa. Five nights in a Beach Villa and six nights in a Overwater Deluxe Villa. As sophisticated travellers, we had fairly high expectations. All of which were by far exceeded!!! Starting with food: the variety of menus and the quality are mind-blowing. The staff is super friendly, qualified and always helpful (special thanks to our „Butler“ John who made us feel like Royals…!!!) and the villas don‘t leave room for wishes. Our two girls loved the Kid‘s Club (which offered a variety of activities every day) and I was surprised to find one of the best Golf Indoor simulator facilities ever. And a great thanks to the PGA Golf Pro Daniel with whom I had seven fantastic golf lessons!!! Another great thanks to the hosts, Christophe and Amir, who only recently took over but are, in a very pleasant way, omni present and seem to lead the island in a perfect manner. If there is something which „only“ gets 4.5 stars, it may be the reefs and the snorkelling. As almost everywhere in the Maldives, reefs have lost color and there may be some islands which could offer a larger variety of fish for water enthusiasts. But overall, this resort deserves the five stars and if you are a sporty family, trying to find the perfect place for your next holiday (or simply try to find a lot of quite and privacy), there is no better place than the Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa!!!! Last advise: go for the White Platinum Package. It pays off in any event!!!

Hotel's Favorite
We are a family of four (5 and 7 years old kids). We stayed for 10 days at Hideaway in the beginning of June. Our butler Mr. Zareer showed the island and explained everything to us on arrival. In the villa there was a bottle of cold Prosecco and fruits which was nice. Beach residence with plunge pool has giant territory surrounded by green trees. You do not see any neighbours at all. All restaurants serve delicious food. Taittinger champagne is included in AI package. Cocktails were great as well. This island has large reef with a lot of different fishes. We even saw reef sharks, manta rays and sea turtles. Kids club works daily and suggests different kind of activities each day. They paint on coconuts, hunt crabs and organize crab races after that. It was really funny. Our kids enjoyed it a lot. It was really great experience for all of us. I highly recommend this resort and would like to thank all staff for exceptional service.
