Naladhu Private Island ranked Best Resort in the Indian Ocean & 9th Best Resort in the World

Naladhu Private Island Maldives has been ranked No.1 among ‘Top 30 Resorts in The Indian Ocean’ and 9th as ‘The Best Resorts in the World’ by CN Traveller – The website of Condé Nast Traveller Magazine.

This is the 3rd consecutive year for Naladhu Private Island to win the best resort in the Indian Ocean.


For their 32nd Condé Nast Traveler annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey, with a record-breaking 600,000 registered votes, 10,000 hotels, resorts and destination spas were rated, with 15 per cent making the final cut.

With only 19 expansive guest quarters in South Malé Atoll, Naladhu Private Island provides a level of privacy and personal attention impressive even in the Maldives. Weathered-wood accommodations come with a private garden and an infinity pool, high-ceilinged interiors decorated in cane and tropical hues, and an open-air bathroom with L’Occitane products and a sea-facing tub for two. The Living Room’s dining spaces range from tables set around the all-glass wine cellar to cushioned Indian daybeds under the stars, and a fleet of dhonis adds onboard private dinners. Dedicated butlers, or VGCs (very good chaps), exceed expectations with quiet, smiling service. With a location only a 30-minute speedboat ride from Malé’s international airport, Naladhu represents the Maldives’ most convenient exclusive destination yet.
