WHEN YOU’RE STAYING ON a private island resort set in the Lhaviyani Atoll, an especially stunning corner of the Maldivian archipelago, it’s hard to imagine wanting anything more. At Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi, the sands sparkle like crushed pearls, the waves are a luminous shade of turquoise, and there’s nothing to disturb your days of beachy bliss. Nevertheless, after a few days in paradise, some travelers find themselves craving new diversions. Luckily for guests here, the fabulous Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa is located a breezy, five-minute boat ride away on a sister island in the private lagoon, meaning you can enjoy the best of both resorts on one holiday.

While both resorts make for a truly superb stay, each has its own distinct appeal. At Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi, guests are treated to a true “AAA” experience—in other words, you can appreciate anything, anytime, anywhere. From spa journeys to unlimited water sports to tastings from the acclaimed wine cellar, this truly all-inclusive concept raises the bar in luxury. A private butler is always on hand to make your every wish a reality. 

Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa is perfect for anyone seeking an all-inclusive, adults-only escape, which includes a series of destination-worthy restaurants. Guests can opt for fine dining at Canneli Restaurant or Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, and Chinese fusion fare at Kashibo. Finally J.F.K., or “Junk Food Kitchen,” serves sophisticated spins on comfort staples. With three bars, including the breathtaking Champagne Pavillion, there are plenty of spots for a top-shelf sundowner. Finally, residents at both resorts can enjoy mouthwatering menus at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, the worlds’ largest glass-encased underwater eatery.

As resorts are leaders in sustainability, single-use plastic products are banned and stylish, environmentally conscious options are available in their place. Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi is the only fully solar-powered private island, making it a true pioneer in the field. Meanwhile, Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa has a marine biology center in order to help preserve the vast array of marine life that swims in these waters.
