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
An absolutely beautiful resort. The service was first class and the food was incredible but the location was the highlight, it was just so beautiful here. Our time at Hadahaa and The Maldives exceeded expectations.
Great Housereef, with very alife coral gardens. Fewer fish visible, as they hide in the corals. But all in all very good! State of the hotel is okay, but not as well maintained as other really great resorts (Baros, Milaidhoo). Service was professionell and friendly, but anonymous. You never feel at home.
Alll staff went above and beyond expectations, especially our host Murtaza. The rooms were fantastic, and they catered and tailored the experience for our 3 children very well with babysitting services and activities for our kids. We hope to visit again soon!
