Naladhu Private Island, the exclusive luxury island resort in the Maldives is set to reopen in November with a new look.

The resort is undergoing a major refurbishment with the public areas and accommodation being renovated and the resort’s top suite, the two-bedroom pool residence, reopening with its own 20 metre private beach.

Redesigned by New York based designer Yuji Yamazaki, the resort features new sleeker furniture and a lighter colour palette creating a modern colonial south east Asian style. Yamazaki has focussed on maximising the number of spots around the houses where guests can unwind, ranging from ocean-side seating for breakfast to pre-dinner cocktails on the chaise longue overlooking the pool.

The restaurant, bar, wine cellar and gym are among the public areas receiving a completely new look. The resort will also be expanding its no-menu dine anywhere concept, enabling guests to choose their favourite dishes and dining spots round the clock.

The Beach House with Pool has direct access to the lagoon, and the Ocean House with pool and private beach cabana has a large terrace with panoramic ocean view. A Kuwaanu (butler) will take care of all your needs. Each house will be named after an indigenous Maldivian flower or plant that can be found on the island.

The 600 sqm Two Bedroom Pool Residence can accommodate upto six guests. It features pool and large deck facing the ocean, along with loungers, al fresco dining area and a swing, and its new private beach offering direct access to the lagoon.

The resort is also rolling out new experiences, including a snorkelling tour with the inhouse marine biologist.

Naladhu Private Island will also be revamping its wellness services with a new dedicated spa treatment area including a double treatment room with a bathing and changing area. A Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist will also be resident on the island.
