How's this for aspirational travel? Both Hurawalhi and Kudadoo are located minutes apart by speedboat in Lhaviyani Atoll, only a 40-minute sea plane flight away from Velana International Airport.
Hurawalhi Maldives is a 90-villa island resort featuring the Maldives’ largest underwater restaurant – among others –, a marine conservation centre with its own resident manta ray population and green turtle community, and experiences thought to entertain any kind of guest.
Awarded with a Travel Life Gold Award 2018 for its commitment to sustainability practices, Hurawalhi Maldives has its own water bottling plant to substantially reduce the island’s plastic consumption, with 30% of the island powered by solar energy. A wide range of pool and beach villas allow guests to book a stay that is tailor made to their needs, from Ocean Pool Villas, featuring a 25 sq. m. infinity pool and a sundeck with staircase to the lagoon, to Beach Villas, where guests can enjoy their own private beach just a few steps away from their elegantly furnished bedroom. Other categories are Romantic Ocean Villa, Ocean Villa and Beach Sunset Pool Villa.
Hurawalhi Maldives is home to the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, the biggest of its kind in the Maldives, all-glass made, offering a once in a lifetime culinary experience. The Cannelli Restaurant and Kashibo Restaurant offer guests some of the best Italian and Asian cuisines they could experience in the Maldives, while enjoying beautiful views.
A world class Wine Cellar, the Coco Bar and the Champagne Pavilion ensure guests of Hurawalhi Maldives to live nights to remember over the once in a lifetime scenario of the Indian Ocean. The Duniye Spa – part of the multi-award winning spa group – offers over water luxury spa treatments using Healing Earth products, renowned to be chemical free and organic. Hurawalhi Maldives is home to 54 dive sites that are rich with some of the most beautiful species that inhabit the Indian Ocean, such as black reef tip sharks, eagle rays, mobula rays and green sea turtles. The resort’s resident marine biologist hosts snorkelling trips to visit the atoll’s famous manta rays. Other in, on and above water experiences are available to guests, such as couple-favourite ‘Dream Island’ – an exclusive private island excursion. Hurawalhi Maldives is the sister resort of Kudadoo Maldives Private Island. When Kudadoo Maldives Private Island opened in late 2018, it became the only all-inclusive luxury offering in the Maldives, and is also the first to be fully solar-powered. Kudadoo Maldives Private Island is also available for private hire. www.kudadoo.com
