Indulge all the senses on Naladhu Private Island Maldives, where tropical escapism and signature Anantara luxury promise the perfect slice of paradise.

If there was ever a blueprint for bliss, then Naladhu Private Island Maldives would be the master plan. Naladhu, which translates from Dhivehi as ‘beautiful island,’ lives up to its name from the moment you step off the private boat transfer to the sound of beating drums and a warm welcome from your personal retinue.

Exclusivity comes in the shape of just 19 houses and one two-bedroom residence, all with requisite views of the Indian Ocean, private pool and a charming colonial-inspired design with colorful Maldivian accents for the desirable island vibe. If luxury knows no bounds, the only the two-bedroom Pool Residence will do. With carved gates opening onto a private courtyard and your own beach beyond, 600 square meters of premium living space is yours to explore.

While tropical escapism tops the travel list for most guests, it’s comforting to know that a dedicated butler is on speed-dial, and your go-to for indulging your every whim, from restaurant reservations to local excursions.

Island living is characterised by lazy days spent lounging in a hammock or wandering along the beautiful white sandy beach, with moments of pure bliss only interrupted by gourmet dining experiences. Seasonal cuisine is in the all-day dining spotlight at The Living Room, with its intimate lagoon-front setting, whether it’s a simple but exquisite breakfast, a world-class dinner courtesy of a visiting Michelin-starred chef of Maldivian-inspired feast. Bespoke occasions are a specialty. One call to your butler and a romantic meal served in your favorite lagoon location is easily arranged.

Work off an indulgent lunch with a game of tennis or a few laps of the 17-meter infinity pool, or exercise the mind with culinary classes, guided meditation sessions, and private yoga tuition.

Mind, body, and soul are also pampered at Anantara Spa at Anantara Dhigu and Balance Wellness by Anantara at Veli. Here, Ayurvedic healing rituals meet Thai, Balinese, and Western traditions with therapies designed to relax and rejuvenate.

The island will do its best to hold you captive but unforgettable moments of discovery await elsewhere, courtesy of a luxury yacht, speedboat, catamaran, and traditional dhoni for chartered excursions and island hopping. Deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and scuba-diving take you above and below crystal-clear waters. Or, take a seaplane tour for a bird’s-eye view of the stunning natural landscape and your Maldivian home away from home.
