Staying in Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, MaldivesLike0

We are no strangers to Maldives and luxury resorts. In each property, there are similarities and differences. Trick is, to find the one that suits you most, whether you are on a budget or looking for a luxury escape or a vacation with the family. Actually, Maldives has almost everything you need for that soi-disant luxury break by the sea. Last week we spent 3 nights at the newly re-opened Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa on Dhonakulhi Island in the Maldives. A review staying in Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa.

Love,

Where in Maldives is it?

Located on the crescent-shaped Dhonakulhi Island in the north of the Maldives belonging to the Haa Alifu Atoll; 290 km from the capital Malé. Following a $50million investment in the redevelopment of the whole-island and an extensive renovation of the property, previously known as Island Hideaway, the five star resort offers guests the luxury of space and privacy across 297,000 square metres.  The 103 luxury villas fall into eight categories ranging from beachfront to over-water.  Each villa has been carefully positioned to offer peace, comfort and privacy to guests.  Home to the first fully-functional marina in the Maldives, due to its unique reef system, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa boasts an enviable dive spot close by. The resort offers a programme of wellness and sporting experiences (which hopefully in the future you would not need to pay for the non-motorized water sports activity), vast culinary offering, and one of the largest spas in the Maldives. Characterized by its intimate ambiance and remote location, the island resort stays true to its name and offers guests ‘a true hideaway’.

Where to eat?

Guests have a choice of taste-infusing cuisine at the resort which boasts a selection of culinary options, ranging from contemporary à la carte dining, to the entertaining art of Teppanyaki-style cooking and intimate destination dining – We were always the first at breakfast and it had the different stations, eggs, waffles, cold cuts, cereal and the Chinese food breakfast. (Huge market in the Maldives for the Chinese). If you are a fan of Indian food, the fusion Indian restaurant was one of our favorites.

 

Which room to stay in?

The villas are designed to create the impression of a floating paradise. Inspired by the exotic, unspoiled landscape of Dhonakulhi Island, the villas combine tropical tones with contemporary touches with local Maldivian influences. The overwater bungalows are a new addition to the resort. Stay at the Deluxe Ocean Villa with Molton Brown Brand amenities and a well stock of the mini bar and snacks. These villas also include 24hrs free private butler service. For the rest of the villas, private butler service is provided complimentary service across all of the villas at the resort.

  • The trips we host on @travelwithtjd on our polar journeys for the past years has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life and I’m so incredibly grateful for everything I’ve learned, experiences, felt, seen and for the people I’ve met on our trips! 
Our season starts this September with different groups traveling with @dennisstever and I to Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland! 
We have also released our travel dates for 2020 and with new destinations too and new experiences. I hope you can join us!! Click the link in my bio to learn more or follow @travelwithtjd for updates!
  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon 
Namaste

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
