Beach bungalow

A castaway paradise in the Maldives, just a short hop from Malé, with all-inclusive dining, a night fishing trip and speedboat transfers for one adult

  • All 36 of Makunudu's Beach bungalows are built in traditional Maldivian style, with rustic thatched roofs. Wash away sand and sea salt in your private garden shower and take shaded afternoon naps on your sun loungers. The best thing? The soft sound of the waves lapping the beach as you fall asleep.

  • Open all day, Ara Iru Restaurant is a laid-back spot for buffet-style dining, fresh seafood and local delicacies while the Sand Bar is on hand for ice-cold tipples. Romantic candlelit dinners under the stars, sunset champagne cruises on a dhoni, and private lunches on a secluded sandbank (extra charges apply) can also be arranged.

  • Aavun Spa offers an excellent selection of bespoke therapies that incorporate Maldivian, Asian and European techniques. In addition to a comprehensive list of beauty treatments, you can indulge in a variety of spa rituals - the standout Maldivian Journey includes a deep cleanse, coconut scrub and top-to-toe hydrating massage.

Get away it from all: far, far away in the midst of the vast Indian Ocean. Tiny Makunudu Island is barely locatable on a map, but you may be pleasantly surprised to find it’s only a 50-minute speedboat ride from Malé. There’s a PADI dive centre on site and conveniently, a brilliant house reef that’s reachable from the beach. If exploring the depths isn’t your only hobby, the resort offers wind-surfing, catamaran sailing, snorkelling, kayaking, as well as badminton and volleyball. Experience the magic of night fishing on a traditional dhoni and take a boat trip around the atoll on a dreamy island-hopping excursion.
