honeymoon in maldives

27 February, 2024

The Maldives is world-renowned as an idyllic beach destination, offering incredible scuba diving and snorkelling, luxury resorts and tranquil spas, and it tops many bucket lists – in just one visit you understand why. Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa offers all of this and much, much more in one of the most beautiful place!

Remote Location

Hideaway is located in the northern-most atoll in the Maldives, Haa Alif, and as such, is one of the most remote resorts in the country. Away from the busy atolls close to the capital, Male, it becomes more quiet, peaceful and undisturbed. The remoteness of Hideaway, coupled with the uncrowded nature of the island, gives the feeling of a private island paradise, away from the rest of the world.

As well as being the furthest north atoll, Haa Alif is also a culturally significant atoll, it is home to Utheemu Island, the birthplace of Sultan Mohamed Thakurufanu who ruled the Maldives from 1573 to 1585. He is known for fighting the Portuguese, who ruled over the Maldives from 1558–1573, and winning back the Independence of Maldives. Utheemu is just 10 minutes away from Hideaway and a visit there is a must for those interested in history and culture.

Space and Privacy

Set on a large crescent-shaped private island, Hideaway offers a choice of private villa suites directly on the beach or atop the sparkling ocean, all with an unrivalled level of privacy thanks to the large island and relatively small number of villas.

Only 10% of the island is developed with villas and amenities and the remainder is a tropical, natural, and private paradise waiting to be explored. Guests staying at Hideaway bask in seclusion not afforded at most other resorts; there is a true feeling of escapism whist staying in some of the most luxurious and spacious villas in the Maldives.

A special place in the Maldives

Hideaway Beach enjoys an enviable location in the northernmost area of the Maldives, perfectly secluded and hidden away from the rest of the world. From the moment you set foot on the island, you’ll notice how natural and untouched Hideaway is – the pristine sands, lush vegetation and clear lagoons make this a destination that surpasses expectations. As day turned to evening and the spectacular sunsets fade, the night sky becomes a twinkling blanket of stars with a clarity hard to come by in areas where there is a higher concentration of resorts.

The untouched natural beauty goes beyond the resort island, guests choosing to explore the ocean during excursions by boat will find they rarely see other boats with the exception of perhaps a local fisherman on a small boat; those embarking upon scuba diving and snorkelling adventures will find they are usually the only group at the reef. There are 30 prime dive spots – all much less crowded since there are only a few resorts in this region compared to central Maldives where its much more crowded and not as pristine. Fewer divers and snorkellers mean an abundance of marine life ranging from clouds of tiny colourful fish to the iconic mantas and whalesharks that the Maldives is so well-known for.

Double House Reef

The underwater world is one of the main attraction in the Maldives and loved by those who enjoy snorkelling adventures. Hideaway Beach Resort is blessed with a fabulous and easily accessible double house reef just a short swim from the beach that allows you to experience the magic that lies beneath the surface.

The house reef boasts nice coral blocks that are home to uncountable colourful reef fish, stingrays, moray eels, and a wealth of other marine species. If you are lucky you may even spot eagle rays and reef sharks cruising the reef along, or even turtles! Complimentary use of snorkelling equipment is included with your villa so the opportunities for magical underwater adventures are limitless.
