Ithaafushi – The Private Island, The Latest Addition In Waldolf Astoria Maldives

Although most Maldives resorts are already relatively private, with one property per island, there are a few alternatives for travellers looking to take things to the next level.

The latest comes courtesy of the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi resort, which recently officially opened "Ithaafushi - The Private Island". Spread over 32,000 square meters, it's being marketed as the largest private island in the Maldives and can be rent out for $80,000 (RM323,000 +/-) a night.

It's easy to get to from the international airport in capital Male. Guests can access the island via a 40-minute ride on one of the resort's six yachts. For those who want to enjoy those amazing seaplane views, a 15-minute flight option is available.

The private island features a stunning three-bedroom beach villa, two-bedroom overwater villa, four-bedroom residence, five swimming pools and a private entertainment clubhouse.

The island can accommodate 24 guests in three buildings: there's a two-bedroom overwater villa with indoor and outdoor rain showers, a shared living room, infinity pool and Jacuzzi; a three-bedroom beach villa with two swimming pools; and the four-bedroom residence, which comes with two king bedrooms, two queen bedrooms, Jacuzzies and large common living area, all with direct access to the beach.

Mix a slow-paced island getaway with action-packed adventures. The island features a private entertainment clubhouse, spa, gym, water sports, and playground. This is an unrivalled Maldivian experience.
