Hideaway Beach

If you are looking for space, privacy and laid-back luxury, you will find it at the beautiful Hideaway Beach which has some of the largest villas in Maldives, most with their own pools.  A 1.5km long, crescent-shaped island in the northernmost and largely undiscovered Haa Alif Atoll, it has the ideal combination of stunning waist-deep lagoon for swimming and an unusual double coral reef with a natural deep channel, for outstanding snorkelling just off-shore. With only 103 villas on and around such a large, lush island, there is plenty of space for strolling or cycling, with complimentary bicycles. Facilities include four restaurants and bars, two pools, a spa, sports complex including large gym, tennis academy and kids' club, which also offers free babysitting.
