Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi Maldives Spa resort & Marina

Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi Maldives, Spa Resort & Marina hotel is a luxury boutique resort situated on the privately-owned uninhabited virgin island of Dhonakulhi, North Maldives, Indian Ocean. This beach resort hotel was opened on 1st August 2005 with 6 types of spectacular guest villa accommodations. The marina is the first of its kind in the Maldives. The Island is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. The Island Hideaway is one of the very few resorts (currently 3) in the Haa Alifu Atoll and is a five star deluxe beach resort hotel.

Guests are whisked to this beautiful luxury Maldives hotel, The Island Hideaway in the North of the Maldives by a 45-minute scenic photo-flight from the international airport at Malé, the capital city, to Hanimaadhoo (Domestic) Airport followed by an exhilarating 20 minute speedboat hop to Dhonakulhi Island. We are delighted to introduce the FIRST Marina in the Maldives, a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art Marina, built by Walcon Marine - a well-known Marina Builder. Dhonakulhi Island, with a beach length of some 3,200 meters around the Island, is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. The crystal clear turquoise waters of the shallow waist-deep lagoon surrounding the island stretch as far as the eye can see. The Island's uniquely rich and dense vegetation instill a feeling of harmony and being at one with nature. Guests can choose to arrive at The hotel Island Hideaway Maldives either by a 45-minute scenic photo-flight from the international airport at Male', the capital of the Maldives, or guests may also fly-in on seaplanes or private jets, or cruise their yachts to the Island's fully-equipped world class marina.

Dhonakulhi Maldives island is a physically large crescent-shaped island with a beach length of some 1.4 kilometres on each side, a width of 500 metres and land area of 234,000 m? – equivalent to 28 football pitches. The crystal clear turquoise waters of the shallow waist-deep lagoon surrounding the Island stretch as far as the eye can see. The Island is unique in its reef formation, the reef system it sits on having a natural channel splitting it in two distinct parts, and thereby forming a natural harbour for the marina. In addition to coconut trees, banana trees and lush vegetation, the hotel Island is covered by uniquely rich dense bushy vegetation.

Whilst the resort offers 43 spacious, private luxury villas and whole range of first-class facilities, majority of the island has still been left in its pristine natural state! A rustic celebration of nature. Designed as an intimate, luxurious resort, with exceptional levels of attention to detail, the resort is a rustic celebration of nature, with custom-made, hand-finished natural materials used throughout. A stay in these havens of peace and serenity will leave you fresh, revitalized and rejuvenated! A fine balance between Luxury, Privacy and Nature – very unique in the Maldives!
