Milaidhoo Island Maldives,Baa Atoll,Maldives, 20215 Baa Atoll, Maldives
Show Map

Milaidhoo, opened in November 2016, is nestled within the Baa Atoll UNESCO biosphere reserve, just a stone’s throw from Hanifaru Bay and 126km northwest of Male. The resort is renowned for its boutique luxury experience amidst a protected coral reef, celebrated as a prime spot for snorkelling and diving. Surrounded by lush tropical flora, the island boasts pristine white sandy beaches encircled by a vibrant coral reef.

The resort embraces a relaxed, barefoot lifestyle, with each spacious, air-conditioned villa featuring a private freshwater pool on its sundeck, designed to merge seamlessly with the surrounding natural beauty, offering unobstructed ocean vistas. The villas are adorned with custom-made, Maldivian-inspired furnishings and offer an attentive island host service to cater to every aspect of guests’ stays, from spa bookings to personalized wine selections.

Dining at Milaidhoo is an immersive sensory experience, with three restaurants and two bars offering a variety of flavors. The exclusive Milaidhoo Gourmet plan includes a dine-around option for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, alongside a wide selection of international and premium beverages.

Wellness and adventure are central to the Milaidhoo experience, featuring an over-water spa with four treatment suites, complimentary yoga and meditation sessions, and a range of water sports and activities. Guests can enjoy sailing, kayaking, fitness facilities, yacht excursions, and unique wildlife encounters, including dolphin cruises and manta ray spotting, guided by the resort’s marine biologist. An infinity pool adds to the serene ambiance.

Access to Milaidhoo is via a scenic 30-minute seaplane journey from Velana International Airport, with transfers available for an additional fee.

Five Nights of Milaidhoo Magic
Pros: This was our second stay at this property with a few years between… and Milaidhoo is even better now than when it first opened. The staff were exceptional. The food was impeccable, wonderfully highlighting Maldivian cuisine amongst a range of international dishes. The wine list holds its own against any Michelin starred restaurant, featuring the best wines of the new and old world. The resort reef is an absolute pleasure to snorkel or dive, and it’s within a few meters of the beach! Unlike many other reefs in SE Asia and the Pacific, there is no pollution here. We had some very heavy downpours during our stay over NYE but the staff accommodated, adapted and moved the events under cover without missing a beat. Simply exceptional.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: I loved the fact that everyone in milaidhoo gave a very personalized feeling at every given moment. Truly a place for couples to visit. The 24 hour butler - Yenny for our entire stay was exceptional.
Cons: After 6 , the property felt too dark due to less installation of lights everywhere and in the room. There should be more vegetarian option in the breakfast menu.

A unique experience - not only the food, the villas, and the house-reef are absolutely fantatstic - above all, all members of the staff are, without exception, superfriendly and personal in a gentle and pleasant way - their positive "vibes" make you feel absoluetly happy. We will definitely come back to this amazing place. We have seen numerous luxurious Maldivian islands - they all were beautiful, but Milaidhoo is clearly number one!

I've been lucky enough to visit Maldivian Islands regularly for 25 years. Occasionally I’ve gone back to the same island but the only island I have gone to three times is extraordinary Milaidhoo. I’ve spent well over a month there in total: The island is beautiful, the reef is excellent, the spa and other facilities are top of the line & I’ve never had better food. However, what really sets Milaidhoo apart above all of that, is the simply PHENOMENAL SERVICE. The whole team is outstanding in their professionalism but even more wonderful is their warmth and friendliness. And it isn’t fake/forced or too much, you can tell they are a well supported team who are enjoying giving all their guests and colleagues the best time that they possibly can.

We visited the Milaidhoo for the 2nd time (our 6th time in the Maldives). It was again PERFECT! We highly recommend this hotel to everyone who asks us where to go for a luxurious stay in the Maldives. ||||Its special focus on privacy & nature resonates with us strongly. What also sets Milaidhoo apart is its welcoming atmosphere. The staff, treated like family, are genuinely warm and make the resort feel like a home away from home.||||The resort's attention to detail is impressive, with staff remembering our specific preferences like split blankets and dietary allergies. Our butler - Yenny - was again excellent, providing attentive and thoughtful assistance throughout our stay. We already had her in our first stay and couldn’t wish for anything else. She really made a difference to our stay and we are very grateful to have her! ||||The spa experience at Milaidhoo was (again) a highlight, offering relaxation and rejuvenation. The beach remains the best we've seen in our travels, with its pristine and serene setting. It's the ideal spot for a peaceful retreat. Dining at Milaidhoo was consistently delightful, with every meal being a treat in both taste and presentation.||||We hope to come back soon!

Wir wurden auf Milaidhoo durch Freunde aufmerksam, die 2020 die Insel besucht und voll des Lobes davon berichtet haben. ||Entsprechend hoch waren unsere Erwartungen. ||Als anspruchsvolle 5 Sterne+ Urlauber mit einiger Erfahrung aus vielen ähnlichen Reisen weltweit können wir sagen, dass alle Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt wurden!||Bereits bei der Landung unseres Fliegers in Malé wurden wir durch das zusätzlich gebuchte CIP Anreise Paket (sehr zu empfehlen!!) direkt am Flieger in Empfang genommen. Durch die Mitarbeiter von Milaidhoo am Flughafen beginnt das Paradies bereits unmittelbar nach der Landung. Alle administrativen Abläufe wurden perfekt erledigt während wir uns dem ersten Drink in der Lounge widmen konnten. Um das Gepäck haben wir uns erst in unserer Villa wieder selbst kümmern dürfen.||Von der ersten Minute des Empfangs auf der Insel durften wir uns als Teil der Milaidhoo Familie fühlen. |Wir wurden sehr sehr herzlich empfangen, man bekommt von der ersten Sekunde an ein Gefühl zuhause angekommen zu sein. |Unser persönlicher Butler Ammadey hat uns buchstäblich jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen, egal ob es die richtige Getränkeauswahl in der Minibar war (welche im Übrigen im Vorfeld schon per Mail abgefragt wurde :-)) oder er mit frisch im eigenen Garten geernteten Aloe Vera Blättern ankam um den ersten Sonnenbrand zu kühlen. Ammadey, nochmals vielen Dank dafür, wir haben dich in unser Herz geschlossen!||Um nicht am Ende einen Mitarbeiter der Milaidhoo Familie zu vergessen, wollen wir auf weitere persönliche Namensnennungen verzichten. Wirklich ausnahmslos alle vermitteln ein authentisches Wohlfühl-Gefühl und zeigen, dass sie das was sie tun sehr gerne und mit viel Empathie machen. Großes Kompliment und tiefen Respekt für das gesamte Management Team unter der Führung von David und Cèline, die die Mitarbeiter nicht nur einmal als Ihre Eltern bezeichnet haben. Man hat wirklich das Gefühl, auch die Mitarbeiter scheinen im Paradies angekommen zu sein.||Die Küche ist absolut auf internationalem Sterne Niveau und muss keinen Vergleich mit bekannten Namen scheuen. Die Qualität der Speisen ist erstklassig, wer möchte, kann morgens oder abends sein Seafood selbst angeln und bekommt es nach jeglicher gewünschter Zubereitungsart serviert. Man wird aktiv angesprochen Sonderwünsche zu äußern, die alle wirklich perfekt umgesetzt wurden.||Wir können eigentlich gar nicht wirklich sagen, was genau den Zauber ausmacht: jedes Detail, angefangen von der Qualität der Betten über die komplette Organisation bis zum F&B ist in einer unglaublichen Leichtigkeit perfekt, sodass ein rundum Wohlfühlgefühl entsteht. ||Die perfekte Umgebung tut ein Übriges dazu. ||So stellt man sich das Paradies vor!||Vielen Dank für eine unvergessliche Zeit.

We traveled as a couple and looked for an overwater villa in a small resort — and we found our paradise in Milaidhoo. We are still overwhelmed by the great time we had and all the memories we made. This place is perfect if you love to spend time with your partner and prefer a mix of relaxing and water activities. |The villa is fully equipped with everything you need and you even have the opportunity to get your meals served there, so there is no reason to leave. |Except — you would miss so much fun. On the relaxing side, there are daily yoga sessions which put your practice on a new level and the option to get awesome massages and beauty treatments (highly recommendable). Focusing on the activities, there is plenty of opportunity to discover the amazing wildlife around the island: snorkelling, looking for dolphins or turtles, kayaking, or catamaran driving. ||Our host Roxy took amazingly good care of us and all the staff is going the extra mile to make your stay really special: there big things like the very cool video the marine biologist Diana made of our snorkelling tour or our tour guide CR and the boat crew going the extra round to see more dolphins or small things like very attentive waiters, thoughtful housekeeping, or remembering us to put sun screen on. We felt totally spoilt and would like to thank Milaidhoo for having us.

If you are looking for a holiday in the Maldives which will provide complete relaxation, luxury and privacy in such an informal way you can stop now. Honestly, you don’t need to look any further. We had the pleasure of staying at Milaidhoo for 12 nights. Everything from the accommodation to the meals are of the highest quality but what sets Milaidhoo apart from anywhere else we have been is the outstanding, understated and personal service you receive from each and every member of the staff. We can’t name all the members of staff who went above and beyond, as all the team have the highest standards. However, we would especially like to say thank you to Saika, Saahath, Shippe, Anka, Koko, Dilshan, the amazing crew of the dolphin trip and the Milaidhoo staff at Male airport who made the transition from the airport to the island and back again such a smooth and effortless process. Most of all though we would like to thank Anthe, our host, and Nazeer, the Ocean restaurant manager, both of whom were simply amazing professionals and who made our stay ultra special. It was a most memorable and incredible holiday and we hope to return again.

We visited Milaidhoo over a 10-day period in June 2022 for our 25th year anniversary. Being from the United States, this was quite a daunting booking. Despite our decades of travel both inside and outside the U.S., we did now know, nor had we ever met, anyone from the U.S. that had been to the Maldives, and we were unsure what to expect. Booking a vacation of that distance and at that budget level is a bit unnerving to say the least, thus perhaps explaining the small group of visitors to the Maldives originating from the U.S. If you are stateside, or really anywhere else, and are curious how this destination was selected and what our experience was like, as well as answers received to many, many questions, this review may be helpful. We’ll briefly describe how we picked Milaidhoo based on what our personal wish list consisted of, and then what the experience was ultimately like (spoiler, the actual experience exceeded every expectation we could have imagined, and if you go there, you’ll understand why – however, to describe all of what Milaidhoo is in an online review is quite impossible). HOW WE PICKED MILAIDHOO The Maldives was selected for our 25th anniversary as means to tick off a bucket list item. Simple as that really. That decision being made fairly quickly, we then spent months researching Male and the surrounding islands (e.g. weather, what months to go, culture, language barriers, accommodations, staff and resort reputation, snorkeling experience, food, and on and on and on). We basically read every single review on every website that had them (no joke, pretty much every single review ever written on perhaps 50 properties). We also joined forums and asked lots of questions, created pros/cons lists and investigated and summarized minuscule details of each property before narrowing our destination to about five islands – many or all of those likely the same few islands that you have seen mentioned over and over in your own research to this point. From there, we obviously ended at Milaidhoo, and the primary reasons for that, based on personal preferences (personal preferences obviously can differ markedly, but the information herein hopefully will be helpful in any case). Primarily, we wanted a quiet experience. We did not want crowds of people, jet skis, parasailing, glass bottom boats, loud music and a party atmosphere, but rather the exquisite beauty of the Maldives combined with the ultimate in tranquility and peacefulness. Peace and quiet in the ultimate landscape was the highest priority. We also consciously picked a location where young children were not present (we have children and love them dearly, but wanted more of a couples experience). We wanted 5-star accommodations, food and service, and preferably, though not a deal breaker, a resort that was privately-owned, vs. something held through a large chain. We wanted our own private pool, and private access to the Indian Ocean for snorkeling and swimming. We do not scuba dive, and thus this review is not a great resource for that population as we did not do any research on best dive locations, although just from our research it seems this is a top-10 destination at a minimum. Beyond that, we’ll defer to the diving experts, as we are certainly unqualified there. And lastly, we required that a very, very high percentage of the guests of that resort, that seemed to exhibit similar desires to ours in online reviews, had a 5-star experience and suggested the location as one they would visit again. Ultimately, if you do that work, you’ll most likely come (as we did) to around three or four properties that appear to fit most or all of those criteria. From there, we spent another chunk of time summarizing the smallest details of each resort, and ultimately that led us to Milaidhoo. OUR EXPERIENCE As indicated above, we are seasoned travelers, and we tend to allocate our discretionary funds to plan amazing trips. We like to ‘do them right’, and spend our money on experiences that we’ll remember for a lifetime. And so, as an unfortunate byproduct, we are accustomed to having the highest expectations for our trips. Despite those high expectations, and all the angst we had for months prior to departing for Milaidhoo, from the very moment we stepped onto this island we were provided with the most incredible, unexpected and thoroughly enjoyable experience we have ever had on any vacation in our decades of travel. Naturally, it’s impossible to compare a Maldives vacation to, say, a trip through Tuscany, or a stay in the beauty of Ireland, or an African safari, etc. Those are different vacations in completely unrelated experiences. However, Milaidhoo surpasses by leaps and bounds any trip we’ve made to any beach/ocean destination in the past 25 years. And that being said, we view the 10-days we just spent on that tiny island as perhaps one of the best, if not the best destination vacation we have ever experienced. First, the lesser important items. The rooms are expansive --- we stayed in both an ocean villa and a beach villa (we split the week as many travelers do here). Both villas have private pools, private water access, beautiful and well-maintained rooms, bathrooms, pantries/bars and patios, and likely, views like you’ve never seen in your life. The view is perhaps not unique to Milaidhoo --- the Maldives is a different kind of beautiful. Beach vacations, sunsets and beauty that we thought could never be topped, were all completely blown away by what the Maldives offers. You pay for that beauty with long days of travel to/from the Maldives (more on that in a moment), but for us, with a stay of at least 7 – 10 days minimum, the payback is certainly there many times over. Despite villas being in proximity to each other, particularly with the Ocean Villa’s, we never saw or heard a neighbor. The ocean is a great sound barrier, and further, the villas are thoughtfully designed with privacy and peacefulness in mind. Waves, turtles, and dozens of species of reef life all are steps from our private pool and patio, and make that crystal clear turquoise water extra welcoming. Additionally, we found that the guests at Milaidhoo, almost without exception, had the same desires we had --- to be alone with each other, to enjoy the beauty of the Maldives and the Indian Ocean, and to find that perfectly serene experience. It was alone time with each other to the extreme, and a forced relaxation that is welcomed and unlike anything we’ve experienced. If you are looking for loud gatherings, parties at the bar at night, blasting resort music, etc, then this is most certainly NOT the resort for you. If you are looking to get away to an absolutely magical place and let the cares of the world melt away, Milaidhoo may be the getaway for you. The island itself is equally beautiful and peaceful at all corners, and can be walked in about 15 minutes --- it’s not large, but every inch is thoughtfully dedicated to everything you may need for serenity. There’s a snorkeling and dive shop that is expansive, a small gift shop, a wonderful walking path around the island, and a spa that you definitely won’t want to miss. Given the size of the island, the number of villas/guests is quite small compared to other properties, and that just adds to the feeling of being on an incredible island all by yourself. In mid to late June, when we were there, the resort is between 50 – 70% full, and at any location you may be on that island with that capacity, you are on average either alone, or one of a half dozen people, other than breakfast where we typically saw the most people – up to a dozen some mornings. The weather that time of year is mostly sunny to partly cloudy, typically with rain for an hour or so each day. We had days it was beautiful all day, and days it was overcast most of the day, and both were a welcomed change and had zero impact on the scenery. We did the ‘half board’ plan, which included free breakfast/dinner each day, excluding alcoholic drinks. The food is absolutely 5-star. The breakfast buffet, which others in the reviews do mention, is beyond words. Of all the high class resorts we’ve stayed, we’ve never seen anything like that. There are several lunch/dinner restaurants to choose from --- Ocean, which is the main dining (“main dining” sounds so plain, and that is most certainly not what you get --- Ocean is 5* food with views that will leave you breathless). Daminda Piyal Perera, the chef, is one of the more talented chefs we’ve come across, and his dishes are only equaled by his smile and friendly demeanor as he frequently greets the guests at the restaurant each night. He’s the personality and type of talent you’d expect at a Michelin star restaurant. Then there’s Ba’theli, which is more authentic Maldivian food, 5*, on the famous wooden boats built to be fixed in the lagoon, where AJ and Baby (most staff have nicknames and we’ll use those often in this review) had us laughing each night with their stories. At Ba’theli you’ll often see eagle rays, sting rays and nurse sharks cruising below your dinner table (nurse sharks are a docile shark and not any threat to humans, as is true for the other few species of sharks you may or may not see in the Maldives reefs). Believe me - we have a strong fear of sharks, and it was so safe at Milaidhoo that we actually went out snorkeling looking for them --- unfortunately did not end up catching any on our GoPro. Then there’s the Shoreline Grill, which is hibachi on steroids with chef Aaron --- a true master chef who makes everything he cooks from scratch, including sauces, soups and the like. He’s a real talent, and impressive to watch. We’ve all been to the hibachi restaurants in the United States, and as you might agree, they tend to be quite similar. This is not your standard U.S. hibachi. As with most things at Milaidhoo, we were blown away by the talent of the chef and the service of the restaurant’s smiling staff. For lunch and bar, we preferred Compass, where Asanka frequently came to us with drinks served in ways we’ve never seen before. We had drinks served in ice sculptures that took Asanka a great deal of time to assemble (for many, he started them hours or days before he served them to us), but even the ones that came in glasses were worthy of multiple photos before drinking. And the staff at Compass, Lucky, and Miyuru are truly lovely people that had us smiling and laughing as we watched the vibrant sunsets over the Indian Ocean. And then there’s your personal butler, and that promise is kept in every regard. Any need, question, and so forth is addressed in minutes by a text or call to your personal butler (they provide the phone, and also use WhatsApp), and you’ll see that individual when you arrive and likely multiple times per day as you go about your day on the island. Abdulla, our butler, has been at Milaidhoo since they opened, and he is one of the kindest, most helpful and most responsive individuals we’ve ever met. Your butler will check in with you to be sure your every need is met, and that your experience is everything you want it to be. You need something or have a question – you get a personalized response, often in person, in minutes. Abdulla won our hearts and is truly one of the gems of the island. The individual that made up our room multiple times per day, Hakeem, is also one of the nicest individuals we’ve ever met, and his care of us and our room was top shelf in every way, including messages written in flowers and leaves on our bed or in the bath many nights, funny animals made with towels that posed on the corner chair, among other smiles we received from Hakeem. And that all brings us to perhaps one of the more surprising and incredible things about Milaidhoo. As mentioned above, we have high expectations. We stay in nice places, and we love great service that creates memories we’ll have forever. We honestly thought we had seen it all, and that there were limitations as to how good service could get. Everyone copies each other, and some do it a little better than others, and that’s all you’ll ever get absent a few surprises you’ll get here and there at a dinner, an event or some venue. That belief we held was completely shattered at Milaidhoo. Honestly, it opened our eyes to a whole new realm of possibilities that resorts have when it comes to providing incredible experiences for their guests. We don’t know who will read this review, if anyone, nor where you may have been and the experiences you may have had. However, as seasoned travelers, we are quite confident that those of you that do go to Milaidhoo and come back to this forum will absolutely agree --- the service you get on that island is extraordinary, to the point you are constantly being astonished even if you are among the hardest to please. I suspect if we go back, Asanka, Lucky, the chefs, greeters, servers and others will have a more difficult time surprising us (and unfortunately we’ve been completely ruined when it comes to what we perceive as great service on any future vacation we may take!), but the attention to detail is beyond impressive. Over the early days of your stay you’ll find most everyone you see at meals and in the more commonly visited areas knows your name, what kind of drinks you like, what kind of food you prefer, what your interests are, your dog’s name, your favorite treat, and so on. Please don’t get the sense this is in any way obtrusive --- it’s completely professional, exquisitely done, and just amazing to witness from the guest point of view. On their website, we recalled on our plane ride home that we had read when booking our trip that Milaidhoo considers their guests “family”. Quite honestly, and perhaps shame on us, we sort of blurred over that as a typical claim that any resort might make, and one quite difficult to fulfill. We’ll tell you, you will most certainly circle back to that website quote during and after your stay, and it could not be more true that we were part of their team, their family and shared laughs and experiences together that we’ll just never forget. There are team members at Milaidhoo that cried when we left (as did we), and many Milaidhoo staff have become friends that we hope to keep in contact with for the rest of our lives. What an incredible and special place the owners and management have created – kudos to you for that. The beauty and quality of this resort are enough to be successful, but the people that work at Milaidhoo, and how they go about their work, make this island a hidden gem that we feel very lucky to have uncovered. THE VERDICT Yes, it’s a long distance from the U.S., and includes likely a connection through Doha or Dubai, followed by a connection to Male, then likely a Seaplane to Milaidhoo. That alone will be enough to turn many people away. The flight was most certainly long. The Seaplane we thoroughly enjoyed and it was quite an amazing (and very safe/professionally run) experience. If you are someone that has trouble sitting for 10+ hours at a time on a plane, or that just despises airline travel, the nearby Caribbean is perhaps for you. But, if you want to try something quite different --- a real experience and, in our opinion, beauty that surpasses anything you’ll find in the Caribbean, do some research on the Maldives, and in particular see what you can learn about Milaidhoo. And when you come back, take the time on the 10+ hour flight as we did and write a review that honestly and plainly lays it out for others in the U.S. We appreciate those that did that for us, as they helped us make a great decision that fit us perfectly. The more of us that do that and share our knowledge and what we found, the easier it will be for someone to take the leap to fly 8,000 miles across the globe to a microscopic island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Thank you to the ownership, management and staff at Milaidhoo. You created memories for us that we’ll have for the rest of our lives, and we could not be more grateful for that. Best wishes to all, and safe travels.

Milaidhoo is beautiful island with several snorkelling options around the island depending on the weather. The staff are very welcoming, the accommodation is superb and the food is first rate. All staff are always ready to advise on the best places to snorkel or paddle board. The Seafood market evening on the beach was exceptional. Our butler Yenny was the best we have had in the Maldives and very cheerful and helpful. The best holiday we have had in the Maldives.

This was our second time to Malaidhoo. We were a little apprehensive as could the second visit live up to our brilliant first trip. We had nothing to worry about as the island was as good or even better than we remembered. All the staff were brilliant and we felt as if we were back at home. The accommodation is fantastic and the facilities second to none. We are already planning our next trip back to paradise.

I have visited Milaidhoo for the 6th time and I am now counting days to go back. It‘s an amazing place, where you get your home away from home. The rooms are perfectly designed for relaxing in and outside, spacious bath and bedroom as well as stunning terrace with different angles to relax and sunbath. Service is amazing: extremely attentive people with highest level of emotional intelligence, who are really extremely engaged to make your stay unforgettable. Spa specialists are also on highest level. The food is delicious. By having 3 different restaurants you have the possibility to enjoy Maldivian cuisine, ocean treasures and traditional healthy kitchen!

Everything about the resort was wonderful! Our beach villa was spacious, beautifully designed inside and out, and with a perfect aspect to the sea. The staff were all so friendly - always smiling, helpful and efficient. They even remembered our names… The food was superb in all locations, and the teppanyaki table was pure theatre! Nothing was too much trouble, and our whole experience was the definition of barefoot luxury.

So, this was our fifth time at Milaidhoo. We hadn't been for two years and I was worried that a) things would have changed and b) I wouldn't have anything new to say. As it happens, things have only changed for the better (if possible) and I have plenty to say! So, sit tight... Snorkelling: The prime reason we go to the Maldives is to snorkel or, for my husband, to dive. We've gone back to Milaidhoo each time because the snorkelling is amazing - so much so that my husband now snorkels in preference to diving. During this trip we noticed that the currents were much stronger than on previous trips and this did mean we had to be careful on the reef. On the flip side, the currents meant we had amazing sightings, with enormous schools of fish, sharks, turtles and eagle rays. We snorkelled with one eagle ray, close up, for over 30 minutes. It was amazing - I've never seen such volume of fish. We snorkel off the beach villas, going in at 204 and turning left. If you can reach a point where the currents meet (near the spa) it is incredible. Room: Our villa has been refurbished since we last went and looked fabulous. We have stayed in larger rooms in the Maldives but none as well appointed as Milaidhoo. We use every bit of it. There are two outdoor showers, one with Acqua di Parma toiletries that we use all the time. The luxury of a posh outdoor shower! The rooms are kept spotlessly clean (thanks Humaid!) and constantly updated with our personal requirements. Food: One of the other reasons we love Milaidhoo is the food. Dimu was away this time (and sadly missed) but we were in the very capable hands of Murey, the head of F&B. The team have clearly done lots of work on the menus and there is a much wider choice of food, particularly for vegetarians and vegans. Shoreline is particularly improved (from our perspective) as the menu is now much wider. Everything we had was fabulous but two particularly outstanding evenings stood out - dinner at Ba'theli (so, so good) and a last night dinner on the beach, with a menu arranged by Murey. The latter followed our own wine tasting event and was simply amazing. My husband declared it the best dinner he'd ever had and I have to agree. The quality and intricacy of the food is outstandingly good - Michelin quality. Service: Knockout. Really, just the best service we've had anywhere. It is so nice to see so many of the team still there from our first visit. And many of them with new roles. But there was also some great new faces. The service is personal, attentive, fun but, above all, designed to make your stay perfect. Milaidhoo often talks about creating your own story of a small island and that is what the team strive to do. I will undoubtedly miss people off this list and spell names incorrectly - sorry guys - but we had excellent service from Saika, Thiru, Yoonus, Kokko, Nazeer, Shippe, Rajesh, Nashwaan, Hashim, Amko (great coffee), Shamveel, Aiman, Chotey, Prabu and Saahath. Shiaz was a constant and it was great to see him now running Shoreline where we had some of our best food. And Murey, as we mentioned above, was a superstar. We owe him a huge thank you for creating some really special moments for us (and for accommodating all of my strange eating habits...) Airport team: Slightly random but, on this trip, I must mention the airport team. We were quite tight for time for our departure (seaplane was late) so we needed to exit the seaplane promptly. The Milaidhoo team were at the jetty, our luggage was off Manta Air in about a minute, we charged through the airport and we got from seaplane to departures in just over 20 minutes. Fantastic service (from Manta Air too). Island host: Abdulla always gets the last word. And rightly so. Without Abdulla, our trip would have a lot less sparkle. From the paintings, the flowers, the romantic baths, the crisp jar, the sand drawings, the organisation behind the special dinners, it's hard to find the words. Abdulla is the one who allows us to drift from one amazing moment to the next and we can't thank him enough. Superstar. We always have fun with Abdulla on our trips and he surpassed himself this time by hiding in the bushes and somehow managing to film Mark and I both upright on a paddle board. Something that can only have happened for the 26 seconds that Abdulla filmed.... So, is Milaidhoo still as good - yes, if anything, it's even better. Are there new things to positively review - yes, loads, see above. And will we go back? Yes. Next year and every year after that... A huge thank you to David, Celine, Abdulla, Murey, Shiaz and the whole team. See you next year!
