Resort Description

Kudadoo is a 5* private island in the Maldives, with 15 overwater villas – and 15 underwater Dive Butlers to match. The adults-only resort is packed with one-of-a-kind experiences and bespoke indulgences.

The ‘Anything. Anywhere. Anytime’ concept gives you the absolute freedom to curate your ultimate trip. That means unlimited dives, unlimited dining, unlimited everything. You’re not even restricted by menus – the chefs will simply make suggestions and you can order what you feel like. Let’s say you want to design your own artisan cheese platter from the glorious walk-in cheese cellar, you can do just that - and then pair it with your favourite bottle of red as the sun sinks down.

You’ll have your very own underwater concierge to take you diving at whatever time of day, effortlessly and privately. Your Dive Butler will happily guide you around the magnificent underwater world, introducing you to the resident sea turtles, or tailoring adventures to your own experience level and marine-life wishlist. A once in a lifetime chance to spend a day on your very own pearly-white patch of seclusion can be easily arranged too - just ask to be taken to Dream Island.

The Retreat, a two-storey architectural masterpiece atop the lagoon, is where you’ll find the infinity pool and world-class bar and restaurant – serviced by the owner’s exclusive wine cellar of carefully selected bottles from around the globe. The luxury spa is suspended on the level above, where you can indulge in treatments in the Maldives’ first Himalayan Salt Chamber. Kudadoo guests can also make use of the facilities offered by the nearby Hurawalhi Resort, where you can famously tuck into fresh sashimi 5.8 meters below sea level, in the world's biggest undersea restaurant.

Explore diving around the Kudadoo Maldives Private Island

What to see

Amongst the caves and overhangs you’ll see different species of moray eel, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, and orange, nocturnal soldier fish with big, black eyes. They can be seen swimming upside down in the dark overhangs.

The soft corals are colorful, and some of the hard corals look like a French horn's bell. Expect reef sharks, turtles and rays, but the wet season is more favorable for manta sightings.

As with most of the Maldives – the variety of marine life in Lhaviyani will keep you busy. Add a shipwreck to your experience, and you might need a spare pencil to complete your dive logs.
