Our favourite rooms
There are no wrong answers – each of the one- and two-bed villas is supremely luxurious. For the ultimate in privacy, go for the villa at the centre of the arc – that way nobody will even walk past your door.
Every villa comes with its own infinity pool, but there’s a jumbo one by the restaurant too, if you’re feeling sociable.
Balinese light features and a wall of coconut husks greet you at the Sulha Spa, where the internationally inspired treatments include warm oil massages and herbal poultice body balms. There’s a salt cave too – the first in the Maldives.
Plenty of swimwear – you’ll be practically living in it.
The common areas are wheelchair-accessible, and there’s step-free access to the rooms.
It’s designed as an adults-only resort, but children over 15 are welcome.
The resort is entirely self-sufficient for energy, thanks to the 984 solar panels on the roof, and the 15 overwater villas are constructed from sustainably sourced wood and designed to exist in harmony with the surrounding ecosystem. Kudadoo partners with local conservation projects to protect local wildlife, the Healing Ocean bath products are environmentally friendly, and you won’t find throwaway plastics anywhere on site.
