Designed by renowned architect Soo K. Chan, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa blends mod design and all the trappings of a tropical island retreat. Sleek open-plan public areas and 50 luxe villas dot the palm-studded white sand island and images of spectacular marine line from the resort’s house reef decorate the walls. Ceilings are high, lines are clean and the decor is a minimalist collaboration of white stone, chunky black furniture and Scandinavian-style native wood.
Bed and Bath
This all-villa retreat is made up of 36 villas located right on the beach (with or without a private pool) and 14 overwater villas with direct access into the Indian Ocean. The light-flooded rooms are all incredibly spacious (starting at 1,184 square feet) with floor-to-celing windows and high ceilings. The monochromatic color scheme is broken up by splashes of chocolate and burnt orange. All have large outdoor terraces with daybeds and private bathrooms with rainshowers and terrazzo tubs and access to a butler-style private host is included.
For a truly tropical experience, head to the Island Grill, a toes-in-the-sand restaurant with an open kitchen and wood-burning oven. The Dining Room sits next to the infinity pool and offers all-day snacks and à la carte dishes in the evening. Modeled on an enormous upturned dhoni (a traditional Maldivian fishing boat), the Dhoni Bar is an impressive spot to sink a cocktail. Or if you’d rather hunker down in the confines of your villa, room service is available 24 hours a day.
In the Area
This remote retreat is located in the Huvadhoo atoll, one of the deepest coral reef lagoons in the Maldives, which means the diving is spectacular. The house reef is full of diverse marine life and can be explored independently or on a guided tour with the resident marine biologist. The resort is a 45-minute flight from Malé and a further 30-minute speedboat transfer so day trips are a little tricky but the property offers a range of activities including Maldivian cookery classes, yoga sessions and snorkeling excursions.
How to Get There
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. We stayed for a total of five nights, and participated in the reef exploration snorkeling, fluo night snorkeling, and trolling fishing experiences. In addition, we took two cooking classes (sushi making and Italian) and the cocktail making class. I recommend all of the activities we participated in, with the reef exploration and cocktail making class being personal favorites. During our stay, we spent one night in an overwater villa. Our guest service officer, Ali, was extremely helpful during our stay. Aslam at Blue Journeys was our guide for the reef exploration and trolling fishing excursions, and ensured my wife and I had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa as a honeymoon destination, and thank everyone there for making our experience a memorable one.
I recently stayed here, amazing experience. Very tranquil, only down side was limited activities on the island. The staff is very nice, and the meals are good. The spa was amazing, i will say the rooms are very nicely done. I have stayed at three islands here all offer similar experience so if snorkling is your thing this is the place if activities i would suggest the LUX. Again staff is very very nice and meals are on par run you about $400-500.00 per day for meals and drinks this is for a party of 2 of course. this seams to be the going rate for any of these islands...
The most amazing experience ever! The hotel and room is magical and our host Ali went above and beyond to make our stay special. Would highly recommend for any special occasion or holiday. The reef is spectacular with so many fish to see when snorkeling.
