Enjoy Upgraded Connectivity Straight to your Hideaway at Hideaway and the Signature Collection – Now with Twice the Connectivity

The luxury island resort located in the north of the Maldives in the pristine Haa Alifu Atoll, recently presented an exciting upgrade on one of the most loved services which is part of the quintessential Maldives experience – Seaplane Transfers. From June 1 onwards, they will be chartering two Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) seaplane flights a day instead of the current one seaplane transfer. The flight duration for the seaplane transfers is around 75 minutes from the airport, straight to the resort.

“The newly launched additional two seaplane transfers per day will help guest arrivals and departures with the added comfort of enjoying more freedom, fewer hassles, and better connectivity to and from their respective hideaways at Hideaway and The Signature Collection”, mentions Desislav Gospodinov – Group Director of Sales & Marketing. “It is our goal and vision to make connectivity to our beautiful slice of paradise as seamless as possible so that guests can enjoy the great experiences that we have like no other in the Maldives without worrying too much about getting to the property. With our transfer partners we will continue working tirelessly to improve the transfer experience to our large island resort as much as possible”.


Currently, the alternative route from Male’ International Airport to the resort is via domestic flight to Hanimadhoo Airport and speedboat transfer afterwards.

The flight schedules are operated by TMA and can be subject to change due to operational requirements or weather conditions without any prior notice. It will not be the responsibility of the resort if the flight operator delays or cancels flights due to one of the above reasons. As per Flight Safety and Security Regulations, the seaplane flights will only operate in daylight. Evening transfers will not be available; therefore, it is necessary to make prior arrangements for overnight stays accordingly.
