Kudadoo Maldives Named ‘World’s Best New Luxury Hotel 2018’

If you’re looking for a luxury hotel in 2019, according to experts at Luxury Travel Intelligence (LTI), you’d be hard pressed to find a better place than the Kudadoo Maldives private island. And that’s because they’ve named it the World’s Best New Luxury Hotel 2018, less than a month after it officially opened.

Yes, with all hallmarks of luxurious living, Kudadoo Maldives promises the very best in escapism. Built on the principle of the triple A (anything is available, at anytime and anywhere), Kudadoo is home to 15 overwater residences, each with unobstructed views over the surrounding Indian Ocean.

The private island only opened on Boxing Day in 2018 but is already attracting many of Instagram’s harem of social influencers. Alongside the spacious residences, the island also boasts a 44m² private infinity plunge pool (complete with a private butler), a bar and a restaurant which serves up locally caught seafood.


Like all good luxury resorts, Kudadoo Maldives is also eco-friendly. The resort’s 984 solar panels enable it to be entirely solar-powered. And its environmentally friendly approach doesn’t end there: the resort employs a minimal single-use plastics policy, so the like of plastic straws and utensils, for example, are banned. Not only that, buildings were built with sustainably sourced wood.


If that wasn’t enough, there’s also various well-being options, including the Maldives’ first Himalayan salt chamber, as well as an extensive range of massages, facials, and acupuncture and reflexology treatments available as often as guests like.

Rooms at Kudadoo Maldives Private Island are available to book now, where a one-bedroom residence booked for two adults starts at £2,600 per night and a two-bedroom residence (four guests) starts at £3,700 per night. Find out more at the Kudadoo Website.


While Kudadoo is exclusive, there might be luxury islands even more remote. Take a look at the Gladden Private Island Resort in the Caribbean, dubbed ‘the world’s the most private island resort.’
