Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa
Best Experience: Honeymoon, House Reef Snorkeling, Diving
Built from scratch to preserve the island's natural environment, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is the pioneer of eco-designn in the country. In truth, Hyatt was lucky to take a new and almost untapped resort built by Alila. It was designed, developed and built to be as environmentally sensitive as possible, within a reasonable framework. Park Hyatt Hadahaa is truly a tropical island paradise set in the North Huvadhoo Atoll, 400 km south of Male international airport. Surrounded by only the vast expanse of sky and sea, the resort's 50 Park and Water Villas offer the ultimate hideaway.
You can drop the idea that something worthy should be boring, or if it is environmentally friendly, it is probably uncomfortable. This place generously exudes the reputation of luxury and expensive taste of Park Hyatt. At the same time, it lost something like coziness, a practical minimalist sense of the original spa.
The resort offers the ultimate Maldivian experience of turquoise and azure waters and fine white beaches, complemented by tranquil settings. Succumb to the healing sensation of holistic wellness at Park Hyatt Hadahaa, where every experience is centred on bringing your mind, body and soul towards a new equilibrium.
Hadahaa offers one of the best house reef snorkeling in Maldives. The clear warm waters are ideal for all types of diving, and the marine biological variability amazes even the most experienced divers.
Start from 2017 Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa offers a new Stay and Dive package, giving guests the chance to explore one of the Maldives’ best-preserved atolls at a reduced rate with fantastic complimentary benefits.
5*- star PADI dive center is likely to be a key attraction factor for many guests. An easily accessible house reef lies no more than 50 m from the beach. With untouched reefs surrounding Hadahaa, the island is a great place for both beginners and experienced divers. The dive centre also offers a unique à la carte diving program enabling guests to customise their dive experience. Dive wherever you want, go whenever you want and all this with your private instructor and private boat as an option.
Gaafu, or Huvadhoo is not only the second largest atoll in the Maldives it is also on the list of the top 10 largest natural atolls in the world. Located in the southern part of the Maldives 50 km above the equator Gaafu Atoll is administratively divided into two parts: Gaafu Alifu (North Huvadhoo atoll) and Gaafu Dhaalu (South Huvadhoo atoll) and has 235 islands with capitals: Villingili (North) / Thinadhoo ( South).

Located in the heart of Huvadhoo Atoll, the largest and deepest atoll in the country, Hadahaa is a small, round and greenery island surrounded by some of the best, soft white beaches and a stunning house reef in the Maldives. Nothing else. The nearest inhabited island is 10 kilometers away. Far from artificial light sources, stars above the head, in the night sky are always beautiful for contemplation. The island is so close to the equator that you can see the constellations of both hemispheres. Aircraft and boats are very rare ... absolute peace.
Guests embark upon a comfortable domestic flight, taking between 60 and 105 minutes depending on the route, with domestic carrier Maldivian to Kooddoo Domestic Airport located in the North Huvadhoo (Gaafu Alifu) atoll followed by an enjoyable 30-minute speedboat transfer to reach the resort.
Design and Villas
Like the perfect location of Hadahaa, the resort's architecture is quite unusual - successfully combining a modern look with the local Maldivian style.
Designed by a team of prestigious SCDA architects, the hotel was perfectly formed to reflect the sense of space and minimize the impact of the resort on the environment.
Minimalism in a rustic style, where interiors use wood and stone, and high, inclined wooden roofs of villas retain inside the coolness. This environmentally sensitive resort was the first in the Maldives, who received the Green Globe certificate.
Since the five-star resort began welcoming guests in 2009, it has undergone several refurbishments to offer guests a rare escape to a barefoot luxury experience. Most recently, it has launched three new luxury villa categories, including the resort’s two-bedroom family villas and villas with deluxe private pools, as well as the Park Sunset Ocean Pool Villas.
A total of 50 villas, 3 categories, rooms at least 100 m2, peacefully share this piece of paradise 420 m long and 300 m wide. Park villas, Park pool villas and Water Park villas with two bedrooms, between modernity and tradition, beautifully emit a luxurious "ecology", that in recent years is becoming a fashion trend. In 2018 Park Hyatt Maldives offered families more space and couples more privacy with the launch of two new luxury villa categories, including the resort’s first two-bedroom family villas and more villas with private pools.

The property has 14 Aqua Villas and 36 Island Villas, 20 of which have a private pool. Highlights of the Aqua Villas are floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic sea views, as well as spacious terraces with direct access to lagoon. Island Villas are located in the shadow of the natural vegetation and are fenced off from each other by a garden, each with an outside bathroom and a sun terrace.
With an additional 100 square metres of space, the eight new Deluxe Park Pool Villas offer guests a more spacious and luxurious experience than Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa’s existing Park Pool Villas. Nestled within natural lush vegetation, the new 265 square-metre timber and stone villas will boast floor-to-ceiling windows and a private outdoor bathroom, with a terrazzo bathtub and rain shower. The villa’s very own plunge pool and semi submerged sunbeds will offer guests the ideal place to cool off in ultimate comfort, surrounded by peaceful and idyllic surrounds. Guests can relax and enjoy an intimate evening drink in the villa’s tranquil outdoor seating area or take advantage of the soft sandy beach with two loungers just a few steps away via a private pathway.
Far enough from each other, they guarantee full privacy, and have all facilities that you can expect from a luxury hotel, with an Ipod docking station, a mini-bar with champagne, and wi-fi free of charge everywhere. Butler service in each villa, attention, always when necessary and at the same time very discreet service. The bathroom overlooks a private garden where you can enjoy refreshment under a large outdoor shower, or better, relax in a beautiful oval bathtub.
For the first time, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa will offer families the chance to stay at the resort under the same roof, with the introduction of three new Two Bedroom Park Pool Villas. Set within Maldivian greenery, these villas include a second bedroom with twin beds and an additional bathroom, so families can enjoy precious time away together, without compromising on space, style, luxury or comfort. Both bedrooms are designed with floor-to-ceiling windows and the master bedroom features a king bed with an outdoor terrazzo bathtub and rain shower. The private plunge pool is perfect for children to play in, while parents can relax on the two semi submerged sunbeds or cosy up with a book in the outdoor seating area. With private beach access, fun and games in the sand and sea are only a stone’s throw away.
In 2018 Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa also has reinvented and unveiled refreshed Park Sunset Ocean Pool Villas. The sunset water villas now feature a freshwater plunge pool with semi-submerged sun loungers and a cabana for guests to experience the Perfection of Pool and Ocean At The Park. The reinvented villas allow guests to take a dip to endless vistas while basking under the Maldivian sun or choose a romantic late night dip under the starlit skies.

Although there are no specific child care facilities, children are most welcome at Park Hyatt Hadahaa. Food and meal times can be tailored to suit the younger guests and babysitting can be arranged for those that require it. The instructors at the dive centre will help with snorkeling techniques as well as sailing or kayaking instruction.
In our opinion, Park Hyatt Hadahaa concentrates on luxury, but the resort also offers authentic Maldivian experience: turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and some of the liveliest and healthiest corals.
“This hotel is creating a new service level which is unbelievable....” , “Once in a lifetime experience. Expensive but worth it. Especially the scuba diving.” “Perfect in every sense.”
"unbelievable level of service, great attention to detail, exceptional quality and taste of food, super-white-sandy beaches, crystal clear water... I could go on for hours like that. All I can say is that this is for sure the best hotel we ever been (and we went to many luxury hotels worldwide) and we want to thank everyone for our amazing holiday. As we didn't meet the GM (he was on holiday the time we've stayed at the hotel) we also want to thank him and hope he can keep this super-high level in the future. We will definitely come back someday. If you want an amazing holiday which is outta this world - go and book this hotel!
