Escapism is an art, one that Kudadoo Maldives Private Island Resort specializes in. The Maldives has quickly risen to become the travel destination of 2019, and accordingly, luxury properties have been popping up all over the islands. Kudadoo Maldives is one such resort, but in addition to 5-star accommodations and astounding natural beauty, it also prides itself on its eco-consciousness. Sustainability is of the utmost importance to this Hurawalhi resort, designed by world-renowned Japanese architect Yuji Yamazaki. In fact, it’s the only resort in the country to be 100% solar powered. Combining environmentalism, luxury, and nature, the Kudadoo Maldives is primed and ready to be your next vacation spot.

Accommodations

“The lap of luxury” is a phrase that doesn’t even begin to describe the residences, as they’re called, at the Kudadoo Maldives Private Island Resort. Each overwater bungalow will instantly transport you to another world. Set atop a turquoise blue lagoon, each residence is complete with an infinity plunge pool, unobstructed ocean views, a personal butler, handmade furniture, the newest electronics, and a fully loaded television with Netflix and Spotify. Comprising an expansive deck with chic outdoor lounge furniture, premium mattresses and linens in the bedrooms, and a lavish bathroom with a claw foot tub, a stay here is pretty much as close to heaven as you can get. Plus, with sustainability at the top of mind, all materials for the residences were sourced from eco-conscious providers, such as the wood, which came from sustainably managed forests in Canada, New Zealand, and Indonesia. 

Dining

Despite the island locale, fine dining is in abundance at Kudadoo Maldives. Guests can opt to eat in their waterfront bungalows, and with no set menu, they can order whatever their heart desires. The gourmet chefs on-site are there to “spark your culinary curiosity” and make your foodie dreams come true. In contrast, there are also a variety of destination dining experiences. A gourmet picnic on the beach? An intimate table for two under the stars on the residence’s deck? Anything can be made a reality! Finally, if it’s a true gastronomic experience you’re after, there’s nowhere better than the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant (pictured above), otherwise known as the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant. This unique setting will allow you to indulge in contemporary cuisine while being surrounded by coral and colourful fish. There’s nothing quite like it.

Swimming with manta rays, sharks, or sea turtles, embarking on a dolphin expedition or jet ski safari, going blue light snorkelling or scuba diving in a coral reef –– the possibilities are endless. The best part about this resort is that you can tailor your experience to your preferences. Whatever you want to do can be arranged (even if what you want is to spend the day on your own private sandbank, also known as Dream Island).
