Naladhu Private Island Maldives also secured the 9th position in The Best Resorts in the World.
"With only 19 expansive guest quarters in South Malé Atoll, this intimate resort provides a level of privacy and personal attention impressive even in the Maldives. Weathered-wood accommodations come with a private garden and an infinity pool, high-ceilinged interiors decorated in cane and tropical hues, and an open-air bathroom with LOccitane products and a sea-facing tub for two.
The Living Rooms dining spaces range from tables set around the all-glass wine cellar to cushioned Indian daybeds under the stars, and a fleet of dhonis adds onboard private dinners. Dedicated butlers, or VGCs (very good chaps), exceed expectations with quiet, smiling service. With a location only a 30 minute speedboat ride from Malés international airport, Naladhu represents the Maldives most convenient exclusive destination yet." Reads the description of the resort in the Condé Nast Traveler website.
