Ithaafushi is an exclusive island sanctuary surrounded by tropical greenery and pristine white sand beaches. A 40-minute private yacht journey from Malé airport, it is ideally located for those seeking exclusivity and secrecy.
The sprawling 32,000-sqm island accommodates 24 guests across two elegantly designed villas and one four-bedroom residence – perfect for bonding with loved ones or celebrating life’s significant milestones with close friends.
A two-bedroom overwater villa promises a unique ocean experience with two spacious master bedrooms complete with double dressing rooms, indoor and outdoor rain showers, a shared living room, infinity pool and jacuzzi. A separate three-bedroom beach villa, set within lush gardens and coconut palm canopies, has its own beach access and two swimming pools. Those staying in the four-bedroom residence will enjoy two king bedrooms, two queen bedrooms, jacuzzis and an expansive common living area, all with direct access to the beach. Every villa features enhanced outdoor space, furnished with elegant yet comfortable lounges facing stunning ocean views.
The island’s dedicated culinary team promises to take guests on a diverse culinary journey, offering bespoke menus to be enjoyed in an array of extraordinary settings. Guests can savour world-class dining for any occasion, from in-villa dining to special celebrations in the estate’s common living room, Haali (translated to mean ‘the nest’ in Dhivehi).
For guests with an appetite for adventure, a plethora of water sports, diving activities and yacht excursions are available. For those who wish to embark on an off-island experience, guests can cast away to a private sand bank in the middle of the ocean where they can indulge in a sunset dinner, a personal yoga session or simply take in the magnificent surroundings.
A dedicated wellness concierge is on hand at the overwater spa to provide customized therapies catering to the needs of each guest, while the meditation and yoga pavilion along with fully equipped gym offer fabulous ocean views, with personal training and classes upon request.
To explore beyond the private island, and for a wider array of dining options, direct access to the main Waldorf Astoria island resort is available via a short speedboat ride.
