The jewel of the Maldives

Like a pearl drop, surrounded by deep blue and brilliant turquoise lagoons, Makunudu Island is a rare and precious destination. Situated in North Male Atoll, a 50-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport, thiså heavenly oasis immerses you in the pure, unspoilt magic of the Maldives.

Havens of luxury and seclusion

Cocooned amid lush tropical vegetation, Makunudu’s 36 charming beachfront bungalows are idyllic private hideaways, each just steps from the sparkling Indian Ocean. Crafted in traditional Maldivian style using local materials, these spacious havens are tastefully furnished and feature a thoughtful array of modern amenities, while fully embracing the nature of the island. 

Indulge the senses

In the intimate ambience of restaurant Ara Iru (meaning “rising sun”) dining is a journey of gastronomic discovery. Indulge in the flavours of East and West presented in a medley of sumptuous buffets laden with meats, fish and tropical fruits across a variety of set menus. Feast on a barbecue inspired by flavours from around the world or a traditional Maldivian buffet that tantalises taste buds with exotic local spice. Also, why not rediscover your sense of peace and wellbeing in the serenity of Aavun Spa, where the best of Maldivian, Asian and European techniques and traditions combine to inspire complete relaxation and rejuvenation.   

To remember forever

Imagine saying “I do” on the beach, bathed in the glow of sunset, accompanied by the lyrical beat of traditional Maldivian drums. These perfect moments will be cherished for a lifetime. 

An ocean of adventure

From lazy days spent on sun-drenched beaches, to snorkelling in the resort’s house reef, appreciating the stunning coral and marine life, Makunudu Island is a place to truly unwind. When evening comes, kick back and relax at the Sand Bar sipping sunset cocktails and be immersed in the mesmerising views.
