Located on the privately owned Dhonakulhi Island, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa prides itself on privacy and lives up to its name, offering a truly idyllic hideaway.

One of the largest islands in the region, the five-star property is nestled among coconut groves and lush vegetation. It features 103 spacious villas that span the island. Guests can also enjoy their own private cocoon when they stay in one of the over-water villas, built above a sparkling blue lagoon.

Home to the first fully functional marina in the Maldives, due to its unique reef system, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa enjoys one of the most desirable locations in the Indian Ocean for exploring the surrounding aquamarine waters.

Wellbeing is the top priority for the hotel; the island resort offers a wealth of wellness and sporting experiences, as well as a kids' club to keep the little ones amused. Spa aficionados will adore the Hideaway Spa, one of the largest in the Maldives. The heavenly sanctuary is complete with a selection of villas to relax and unwind in and offers a wide range of customised treatments using luxury cosmetics by Natura Bissé to overwhelm the senses.

Adventurous guests and nature-lovers who wish to explore the hidden wonders of the Indian Ocean can sail out on a traditional Maldivian dhoni or on a high-speed jet ski to one of the nearby uninhabited islands. Additional watersports activities, including kiteboarding, kayaking and windsurfing, are also available for all to enjoy.

Guests can indulge in an array of taste-infusing cuisine at the resort, which boasts a selection of culinary options, ranging from contemporary à la carte dining, to the entertaining art of teppanyaki-style cooking and intimate destination dining — the ultimate personalised dining experience.

Hideaway's intimate ambience and remote location offer guests a retreat of utmost tranquillity; a place to relax, rejuvenate and restore their wellbeing.
