Kudadoo Maldives Private Island is truly one of its kind. It stands head and shoulders above thanks to the fact that it’s powered by the sun in its entirety, and its coveted Anything. Anytime. Anywhere. concept that’s a rarity even in the luxury hospitality sector. But what makes Kudadoo especially outstanding is the lifetime of great memories that one leaves the island with.
We may be biased, but luckily several of our residents have already submitted their reviews so you can get the feel for the unhindered enjoyment of life that is Kudadoo.
My fiancée and I just returned from our perfect honeymoon, 7 nights and 8 days at Kudadoo. Most of the other reviews here reflect our experience: Kudadoo delivered the most extraordinary hospitality service of our lives. From the moment we arrived in Male airport to the moment we departed, the wonderful Kudadoo staff treated us as if we were royalty. If you ever had a fantasy of what it feels like to be a zillionaire, go there.
One distinct feature of the Kudadoo experience is the “all-inclusive” experience, which is a term that doesn’t give justice to the experience. Kudadoo is light years beyond Club Med, an elevated level of inclusivity that needs its own term. Each guest literally has access to their own wine cellar, cheese cellar, diving and water sports staff, private kitchen and bar that will prepare anything from their huge list of items. Of course, we share these amenities with others, but the staff – led by our personal butler Adhikko – made us feel as if we were the only guests on the island.
There is a psychological freedom behind the level of service which is part of the leisure experience. Because the finest quality is in a sense prepaid, guests can consume without any guilt or stress. This mental relaxation is a critical parallel to the physical component of just being there surrounded by the beautiful sea and the reef below. We snorkeled often from our deck, and saw octopus, turtles, moray eels, baby sharks, and countless fish.
The architecture of Kudadoo is a feng shui masterpiece. Every little design detail matters and seems to have a purpose that is both and function. There are countless examples of this attention to detail. One of the managers told me that they experimented with the lighting placement of the Retreat foyer for 2 months. And that time was well spent. The lighting is extraordinary throughout the island, almost more beautiful at sunset when the lighting is activated.
If you want to have an exclusive, very private, service experience that results in total bliss, go to Kudadoo. It really is a total value and will give you a lifetime of great memories.
Special shout out to our butler, Adhikko, and my personal dive master, Scott, who showed me around the wonders of the reef. I recommend learning the underwater scooter and going to see the sharks and eagle rays. We also recommend 5.8 restaurant at Hurawalhi: super unique underwater experience right out of a James Bond film.
Thanks you, Kudadoo, you are unforgettable!
