Hitting the right balance between informal and luxurious, it is impossible not to feel at home the moment you set foot on this secluded tropical island. Set in the heart of a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Milaidhoo is surrounded by vibrant coral reefs with resident turtles and an abundance of rays and tropical fish. Set sail in an authentic handcrafted dhoni and learn the traditional art of handline fishing from local fishermen while cutting through turquoise waters of infinite beauty. Kick off your shoes, sink your bare feet in the soft white sand and fall in love with the Maldivian lifestyle on Milaidhoo.



50 villas and residences are spread over the island, spanning 5.4 hectares, amidst tropical greenery and surrounded by azure blue waters. The resort is home to 18 beach pool villas, 29 overwater pool villas and 3 private suite-style residences. Each villa takes up to three people and is equipped with unique Maldivian touches ranging from modern art pieces to the custom-made furnishings with only one thing in mind - ultimate comfort. Every villa and residence opens up 180 degrees to fully immerse you into the island’s beauty and includes a private open terrace with freshwater swimming pool and direct beach or water access.


Due to its secluded setting and informal ethos, children over the age of 9 are welcome on the island. There is no kids’ club and parents have to supervise their children.  We therefore recommend this resort for couples and adult groups of friends as families will be much happier at any of the many Maldives’ family resorts.


From a perfect ceremony for two on a deserted sand bank, surrounded by the splendour of the seas, to a fully arranged wedding on the island or a yacht, everything is possible on Milaidhoo. If that is not enough, make the island of Milaidhoo exclusively yours for the ultimate extravaganza while saying ‘I do’. With all the privacy you can wish for, the island is ideal for honeymooners for an intimate, romantic stay. With candlelit dinners, complimentary spa treatments and a star named after yourself, fall in love with each other and with the island.
