Recognized for its entirely unique take on the Maldivian experience, Naladhu has been awarded a top spot in the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards, positioned as the #1 Resort in the World.

The Readers’ Choice Awards are known as “the best of the best of travel”, the epitome of excellence, with this year’s awards the 30th in an illustrious history. Over 300,000 dedicated readers voted on their favorite hotels, destinations and travel experiences across the globe.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers as the number one resort in the world. This year, we decided to rename the property to reflect its true and unique qualities and so this award is testament to the dedication, passion and commitment of our team in delivering this experience to our guests,” comments Coetzer Deysel, General Manager at Naladhu Private Island, Anantara Dhigu and Anantara Veli.

We measure our success by the high levels of returning guests who visit us year after year, treating Naladhu as their island paradise home.”

Each island home blends colonial-style interiors, luxurious sophistication and above all offers complete intimacy and privacy.

In 2018, Naladhu Private Island will see a number of extra additions that will elevate it even further as the world leader, making the guest experience even more exquisite and unique.
