Travelers' Choice
Live in a world of timelessness - a hearkening back to an era when elegance came before trend and luxury was understated. Indulge in moments of pure relaxation in your own sprawling beach or ocean house, with cool whitewashed interiors framed by verdant palms, your house master waiting in the wings. Walking up to the soothing roll of waves breaking just feet away. Walking barefoot across powder soft sands to touch the cool of the azure ocean. Breathtaking stillness framed by dramatic sunrises and sunsets. Naladhu - Maldivian for "Beautiful island" - offers exclusivity and privacy in an untouched paradise, dotted with only 19 beach and ocean houses, exquisite dining, recreational pleasures and hidden moments of wonder. Enjoy a warm welcome at Male International Airport by our airport representatives who will accompany you to the Naladhu launch. Your first glimpse of Maldivian beauty on our luxury speedboat, a 35 minute ride through crystal-clear sea, emerald lagoons and untouched islands in your wake, approaching the pristine wonder that is Naladhu, and the beginning of your story in paradise.

Spent 1/2 of my 40th birthday trip here and there are no words - breathtakingly beautiful with amazing service levels from caring staff. From the booking process to the departure process - wonderful service levels! Arriving to the airport and being escorted to the check in room then to the boat transfer - very comfortable and easy! The boat ride was refreshing and took just about 30mins! Arrival was jaw dropping when we got closer to the resort and saw all the crystal clear water and pristine surroundings! The welcome by the staff was also very well done and made us feel so welcomed. The room product is HUGE and well appointed even though they have had the same decor for over 10 years. Felt very Maldivian which I appreciated but it was great to learn that all the villas will be updated this April! We stayed in an over water villa which is technically not over the water but butts right up to the edge of the beach so not swimmable directly from the villa but incredible views and privacy! What I loved about this villa is that you have a private cabana on the beach as well - a short 2 minute walk if that - and you have a private shaded sanctuary tucked away on the beach in the local flora and fauna that make the island feel magical. The island is small but the villas are so hidden and tucked away that you feel like you own the island! We never really ran into anyone else during our stay which was fine by us! While there is only 1 restaurant on site you have access to the restaurants and facilities located at Veli (connected by bridge) or Dhigu - accessed by a 1 minute boat ride over. As for service - Aslam is amazing!! He was our assigned house master and was always ready to help and inform!! All the staff were friendly and eager to serve yet not overbearing - we loved it!! We were there during covid but it really felt “normal” due to all the protective measures they have in place. Now on to the scenery...no words!!! The water, the sand, the greenery - even the little hermit crabs everywhere!! Magical!! We will return! And their private island experience at Gilhufushi!! YOU MUST DO IT!! Incredibly well valued for all that’s included and the unique experience! That was the BEST part of my entire trip to the Maldives! I have found a true home away from home - I highly recommend this place - I am a director of corporate events and have seen MANY properties and this one ranks VERY highly on my list of resorts around the world that I have had the opportunity to visit! We will return!

Thank you Thomas, Bibin and team. Thank you Bodey and Falah for looking after our house. We had the perfect stay thanks to all of you. We did not believe that you could top our water villa stay on Dhigu last year but we were proved wrong. The entire resort is incredibly beautiful with pristine beaches and azure waters but Naladhu is much more peaceful than the other islands. The ocean villa is wonderful if you like the sound of the ocean at night. The houses are spacious and immaculate. The food was so delicious and the service was so fantastic at the Living room that it wasn’t really worth eating anywhere else on the resort. The diving was -amazing and so was the spa. We’ll be back in the not so distant future.

We have visited Naladhu now the 5th time. Naldhu is for us like coming home to our family. Although Corona is around you havent the feeling that it can catch you on Naladhu. As a guest you are free and you can escape the European cold and not pleasent Winter. Everyone ist Top and gives the Best to feel you at home and specia. We have to thank Thomas, Bibin, on the front. Abdullah who takes care of our House and Sharippe, who takes care about us. Murphey , Sharky, Soba, Ibba, Mexxi, Alix, the Living Room team , supports every day round the clock. Also I have to thank the Origima Team- Japanese best food on Veli - many thanks to Gharib, Ali, Soni, usw. Also thanks to Jaley- who brings us every time with Nirvana to the Airport when it´s time to say goodbye. So to everyone thanks a lot and we see us again next year in a New, renovated Naladhu.

This is not a luxury resort - service level is low and villas are in bad shape, resort needs urgent renovation - we have stayed in several much better resort in the Maledives. Booked on short notice since our preferred resorts were fully booked. Were fooled by wrong marketing of this "private island". Cannot recommend at all. We moved to the Waldorf, which is a complete different league in every respect.

Dear Mr. Daniel D, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your recent experience with us here on TripAdvisor. First of all I would sincerely like to apologize for the inconveniences that you have faced during your stay and that we unfortunately did not meet your expectations. It is our utmost goal to exceed all of our guest's expectations and I am very sorry that your personal villa host made a mistake with his wine service to you. I took this as a great opportunity to re-train our team according to our standards again, in order to prevent such mistakes from happening in future. Naladhu will be undergoing a full renovation starting in May this year and we are excited to bring back a refreshed product by the end of this year, which hopefully may be more according to your liking. I would highly appreciate if you would give us another chance to convince you of our resort after we have re-opened, in order for you to experience the best of what Naladhu has to offer. If I can be of any personal assistance for that, please do not hesitate to contact me at tboehringer@naladhu.com any time. Timeless regards Thomas - Resort Manager
