Naladhu Maldives crowned world’s best resort in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards
Naladhu Private Island Maldives has been crowned the best resort in the world in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.
Listing Naladhu in the first place in the list of the 50 best resorts in the world, Condé Nast Traveler described it as an intimate resort providing a level of privacy and personal attention impressive even in the Maldives.
“With a location only 30 minutes from Male’s international airport by the hotel’s speedboat, Naladhu represents the Maldives’ most convenient exclusive destination yet,” the world’s leading travel publication said.
Naladhu offers an intimate beach resort experience with just 19 guest villas, including six Beach Pool Houses, 12 Ocean Pool Houses and a Two-Bedroom Pool Residence. These weathered-wood accommodations come with a private garden and an infinity pool, high-ceilinged interiors decorated in cane and tropical hues, and an open-air bathroom with L’Occitane products and a sea-facing tub for two.
The Living Room restaurant’s dining spaces range from tables set around the all-glass wine cellar to cushioned Indian daybeds under the stars, and a fleet of traditional Maldivian dhonis adds onboard private dinners.
Dedicated butlers, or Very Good Chaps (VGCs), exceed expectations with quiet, smiling service.
Condé Nast Traveler on Tuesday announced the results of its 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, ranking the best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines, airports, and cruise lines in the world.
