Island Hideaway

Having a beach length of some 3,200 meters around the Island, Island Hideaway is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. The Island is also unique in its reef formation. The reef system it sits on has a natural channel splitting it in two distinct parts, and thereby forming a natural harbour. 95% of the island is in its original state, untouched by the hand of man.

Nature and luxury blend harmoniously

The name of the resort, Island Hideaway, is very befitting since it is far removed from the city, crowds, traffic and noise. It has an understated simplicity to it that brings back repeat visitors who have discovered the place and want to keep the secret for themselves.

Open since August 2005, The Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi sits on its own 1.4 kilometre long, white beach, complete with lush green vegetation, and an adjacent house reef. The size of the island and scarcity of villas makes for a great hideaway amongst the screwpine trees that cover the island; under 5% of the island has been developed. A rustic celebration of nature…

The crystal clear turquoise waters of the shallow waist-deep lagoon surrounding the island stretch as far as the eye can see. The Island’s uniquely rich and dense tropical vegetation instill a feeling of harmony and being at one with nature.


Imagine the seclusion of Island Hideaway, tucked away in the far north of Maldives…
