The Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is a luxury boutique resort situated on the privately-owned uninhabited virgin island of Dhonakulhi, North Maldives, Indian Ocean. The resort was opened on 1st August 2005 with 6 types of spectacular guest villas. The marina is the first of its kind in the Maldives. The Island is a haven of peace, tranquillity and serenity. The Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is one of the very few resorts (currently 3) in the Haa Alifu Atoll.
Dhonakulhi is a physically large crescent-shaped island with a beach length of some 1.4 kilometres on each side, a width of 500 metres and land area of 234,000 m² – equivalent to 28 football pitches. The crystal clear turquoise waters of the shallow waist-deep lagoon surrounding the Island stretch as far as the eye can see. The Island is unique in its reef formation, the reef system it sits on having a natural channel splitting it in two distinct parts, and thereby forming a natural harbour for the marina. In addition to coconut trees, banana trees and lush vegetation, the Island is covered by uniquely rich dense bushy vegetation. Only between five and seven percent of the 1.4km-long island’s total landmass has been built upon. The resort makes use of dense woodland to create a sort of forest paradise around each guests’ residence.
