Naladhu - meaning "pretty little island" is situated on a private island ringed by coral gardens and vibrant marine life, where the stunning turquoise tones of the Indian Ocean are complemented by the exotic scent of nearby palm trees.
There are just 19 sumptuous houses that have been designed for lounging, indulging and ultimate privacy. Each elite dwelling is a colossal 330 square metres in size and punctuated by a lofty white-gabled roof, expansive glass-panelled doors and generous living, dining and bedroom spaces. With a commitment to perfecting every detail, Naladhu fuses modern facilities with a sense of the nostalgia. White-washed timber wall panels juxtapose the zesty Indian motifs and colors of the house upholstery. Antique furnishings, such as an early 20th century writer's desk and the decorous bar cabinet conjure up images of a romantic, bygone age.
Yet while the historic elements are intrinsic to Naladhu's atmosphere, each detail of the Naladhu house has been conceived to serve every guest's whim. A personal pool, landscaped garden and vast teak sundeck make for an exotic experience within the privacy of the enclosure.
The houses each have a voluminous terrazzo bath tub with free-formed edges as well as an open-faced shower which allows for a view from within but remains hidden to anyone outside the house enclosure. There is also an espresso machine, a fridge filled on request with delicacies such as foie gras and vintage cheese and a wine cellar pre-stocked according to personal preferences. Wireless technology is available in every room and the audio equipment comprises of the best and latest Bose products. Disguised artfully at the foot of the bed is an expansive flat screen TV.
The objective of Naladhu is to provide and pamper guests with unsurpassed quality and service. The personalized, "House Master" professional butler service ensures that every desire is met whether it's an active outdoor itinerary, with adventures around the spectacular landscape of the Maldives, or an experience defined by the luxurious facilities available within the house confines.
Guests have the choice of dining under an open canopy of stars in their house Sala, or in the comfort of the Living Room restaurant. Otherwise, Naladhu has many unique dining options aimed at indulging romanticists. Meals can be served aboard a local dhoni (Maldivian boat) or perhaps on the Wave Breaker dining platform hovering over the ocean.
Every guest's wish is Naladhu's desire and they are invited to relish in the moments of their holiday and pander to all their senses. They can pamper out stresses with an exclusive in-house spa treatment or feast their eyes in the underwater colours of the Maldives with the aid of the resort's PADI dive team.
