Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
