Kudadoo Maldives is a private island that stands out for many reasons. In addition to being one of the few fully-inclusive five star resorts in the Maldives, the island's luxury credentials come with a firm commitment to a sustainable future for tourism in the region. This is the only fully solar-powered private island in the archipelago, entirely free of single-use plastics and active supporter of local wildlife and conservation initiatives. Architectural mastermind Yuji Yamazaki has pioneered the design of 15 over-water residences which are constructed from sustainable and locally-sourced materials, produce their own energy and blend sensitively in to the natural surroundings. No compromises are made when it comes to comfort; all of the island's spacious villas boast ample natural light and airflow, uninterrupted ocean views and an expansive open deck with private infinity-edged plunge pool and direct access to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
As well as a commitment to sustainability, an ethos of 'no limits' is at the forefront of the guest experience on offer at Kudadoo. Unlimited excursions. Unlimited spa treatments. Unlimited premium drinks and fine dining. Unlimited watersports. Your personal butler will be on hand to offer as much or as little assistance you require to curate a programme to suit your exact preferences and tastes, be they taking romantic picnics on the dazzling white sandbank of ‘Dream Island’, snorkelling or scooter diving in search of reef sharks and sea turtle nesting sites or taking a gentle cruise of the surrounding turquoise waters to observe pods of dolphins. Back on the island you can recline by the memorable infinity pool or take advantage of the wide range of pampering and restorative treatments on offer in the spa, which include a cleansing therapy in the Himalayan salt cave.
Children of all ages welcome, though no specific programme is on offer. Those under 15 are not permitted to dine in the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant or visit Hurawhali Island.
CELEBRATE IN STYLE
Take or renew your vows in a number of memorable locations including on the pristine sandbank of Dream Island, or surrounded by marine life in the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant. Your personal wedding planner will take care of the all the details, including the photography, stylists and flowers, and traditional music performed by bodu beru drummers is on offer to welcome you as you make your way down the aisle. A live band can also be requested for those wanting to carry on the celebrations after the ceremony. The ‘Anything, Anytime, Anywhere’ bespoke philosophy of Kudadoo lends itself equally well to an enchanting honeymoon, where you can enjoy romantic picnics on deserted sandbanks, become castaways on Dream Island, take advantage of unlimited private dining in your villa or charter the island’s luxury yacht for a champagne cruise under the stars.

WINE AND DINE
The culinary offering at Kudadoo is ‘unscripted’ with no published menus. Instead the expert team cater to you every whim, whether that is fresh oysters, French haute-cuisine or stone-baked pizzas, to be enjoyed on the terrace of The Retreat restaurant and bar, on the deck of your villa, in a candle-lit private dining experience on the beach or perhaps even underwater, at the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant. Wine and cheese tasting can be arranged in the island’s wine cellar, and bespoke menus can also be created if you are following a particular nutritional or wellness regime.
