Naladhu Private Island | Exclusive Private Pool Villas

Best Villas In Maldives With Private Pools

It was sad saying goodbye at the Lux South Ari Atoll but there was not a lot of time to deal with that as a new adventure was waiting. I landed back again on Hulhumale Island and made my way to the Anantara private lounge. Unlike 99% of the resorts Anantara does not have a little booth where you have to present yourself, Anantara has a little private lounge for its guests to relax after their mostly exhausting flight. It did only take a couple minutes though before my speedboat transfer was ready for departure. Naladhu Private Island is part of the Anantara Hotel Group and is one of those Maldives hotels with speedboat transfer. The boat ride took only about 40 minutes and there was the team of Naladhu waiting for my arrival.

Adaaran Prestige Vadoo Water Villas close to Male Airport

There are so many 5 star resorts in Maldives that it is hard to choose the right one and I can understand that everyone thinks that all resorts are the same, but nope that is a complete misunderstanding! First of all not all resorts are 5 star, second biggest mistake is that all Maldives resorts have over water bungalows. Then there are the all-inclusive resorts or those that are very exclusive and most people are unable to afford.

Kuramathi Island Resort Reviews

My second resort after a week in the Maldives with Maldives TV was one away from the North Male Atoll. About 60 kilometers East of the capital there is a little Atoll called Rasdhoo and coincidentally I had already been there last year on my first visit to Maldives. Rasdhoo itself though is a local island and in 2016 I took a local boat to live like a local in Maldives. This time I traveled to an island next to it: Kuramathi Island Resort.

Trouble in paradise at Kurumba Maldives

Being invited to a conference in the Maldives was to me like winning the jackpot. Yes I want to come speak at your event in paradise but don’t expect me to fly home straight after. I requested my flight out of Maldives 2 weeks later as I wanted to make the most of this trip and stay as long as I could. When people asked me how long I would stay I answered as long as I get free accommodation! ;)
