Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has unveiled the exclusive Ithaafushi – The Private Island, the largest Maldivian private island spanning 32,000 square-metres in the heart of the Indian Ocean.
Anchored to the iconic Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts brand, Ithaafushi – The Private Island offers unparalleled levels of privacy, personalised service, unforgettable experiences and the most prestigious and coveted accommodation.
The sprawling estate is about five minutes by boat from the primary resort. It accommodates 24 guests in nine-bedrooms, across two elegantly designed villas and one sweeping four-bedroom residence.
A two-bedroom overwater villa offers a unique ocean experience with two spacious master bedrooms complete with double dressing rooms, indoor and outdoor rain showers, a shared living room, infinity pool and jacuzzi.
A separate three-bedroom beach villa, set within lush gardens and coconut palm canopies, has its own beach access and two swimming pools. Those staying in the four-bedroom residence will enjoy two king bedrooms, two queen bedrooms, jacuzzies and an expansive common living area, all with direct access to the beach.
Spread across the private island are five pools and a private entertainment clubhouse.
The private island’s dedicated culinary team offers guests a diverse culinary journey including bespoke menus that can be enjoyed in extraordinary settings. Savour world-class dining in-villa or in the estate’s common living room, Haali, which means ‘the nest’ in Dhivehi.
For more dining experiences, guests can journey a short distance to the main island and resort, which has 10 specialty dining venues to choose from, including The Ledge and Terra.
