Fascinating Facts About Hideaway You Didn’t Know

The Maldives is world-renowned as an idyllic and picturesque destination, offering incredible scuba diving and snorkelling, luxurious resorts and tranquil spas, and it tops many bucket lists – in just one visit you understand why. Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa offers all of this and much, much more!

Remote Location
Hideaway is located in the northern-most atoll in the Maldives, Haa Alif, and as such, is one of the most remote resorts in the country. Away from the busy atolls close to the capital, Male, it becomes more quiet, peaceful and undisturbed. The remoteness of Hideaway, coupled with the uncrowded nature of the island, gives the feeling of a private island paradise, away from the rest of the world. As well as being the furthest north atoll, Haa Alif is also a culturally significant atoll, it is home to Utheemu Island, the birthplace of Sultan Mohamed Thakurufanu who ruled the Maldives from 1573 to 1585. He is known for fighting the Portuguese, who ruled over the Maldives from 1558–1573, and winning back the Independence of Maldives. Utheemu is just 10 minutes away from Hideaway and a visit there is a must for those interested in history and culture.

Space and Privacy
Set on a large crescent-shaped private island, Hideaway offers a choice of private villa suites directly on the beach or atop the sparkling ocean, all with an unrivalled level of privacy thanks to the large island and relatively small number of villas. Only 5% of the island is developed with villas and amenities and the remainder is a tropical, natural, and private paradise waiting to be explored. Guests staying at Hideaway bask in seclusion not afforded at most other resorts; there is a true feeling of escapism whist staying in some of the most luxurious and spacious villas in the Maldives.

Unique Seaplane Views
Every seaplane transfer in the Maldives is an awe-inspiring experience – the bird’s-eye-view of the islands, submerged reefs, hidden underwater islands and more blues than you could possibly imagine stretch before you in an ever-changing show. The further north you travel, the greener and more lush it gets and on the way to Hideaway, guests get the privilege of seeing the Maldives’ mangroves, known as ‘kulhi’ in the local language of Dhivehi. Mangroves are biologically and ecologically important – they are home to a rich biodiversity of marine life. The mangroves play a significant role in supporting the health of the vibrant coral reefs and their root systems provide a safe haven for countless species, including juvenile fish, sharks, rays, and other marine creatures.

Breathtaking seaplane journey to Hideaway

Double House Reef
The underwater world is one of the main attraction in the Maldives and loved by those who enjoy snorkelling adventures. At Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, we are blessed with a fabulous and easily accessible double house reef just a short swim from the beach that allows you to experience the magic that lies beneath the surface. The house reef boasts nice coral blocks that are home to uncountable colourful reef fish, stingrays, moray eels, and a wealth of other marine species. If you are lucky you may even spot eagle rays and reef sharks cruising the reef along, or even turtles! Complimentary use of snorkelling equipment is included with your villa so the opportunities for magical underwater adventures are limitless.

Romance All Year Round at Hideaway

Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is the dream location for a dream getaway, especially if you’re looking for a romantic bolt hole. Whether it’s for a wedding or honeymoon, a special anniversary, Valentine’s Day or simply because you can, a stay at Hideaway will provide as many romantic opportunities as you wish to fill your days with. The perfect bolt hole for romantic couples is Hideaway’s Signature Beach Residence, a picturesque one-bedroom villa which offers unparalleled Maldives seclusion with a private and direct access to the beautiful North Point Beach.

Romance comes in many guises, for some it’s a couples trip to the spa to be pampered, for others it’s a hand-in-hand stroll along the beach. Some couples love embarking upon new adventures together such as scuba diving or escaping, Robinson Crusoe style, to a deserted sandbank where snorkelling and a serene picnic can be enjoyed. If the simpler things in life are more to your liking, have the Hideaway team decorate your bed with beautiful flowers, organise a surprise breakfast in bed or even a floating breakfast in your private pool.

A cruise at sunset to view the glorious Maldivian sunset and the chance of spotting dolphins playing by the boat never fails to get a spot on the romantic holiday highlights list. Romance just isn’t complete without a candlelight dinner and at Hideaway they are on the beach under a blanket of stars, with your toes in the sand and the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore. At Hideaway you can even enjoy a private movie night on the beach snuggled up in front of your favourite film with Taittinger Champagne, popcorn and chocolate dipped fruit skewers are included.

Hideaway is open for romance all year round so whisk your loved one away for an adventure neither of you will forget, full of moments to set your heart fluttering.

This Was Hideaway’s Festive Season!

A magical world of festivities awaited those who decided upon Hideaway Beach & Spa Maldives as their destination for the Christmas, New Year and Orthodox Christmas holidays and if you want to see what you missed, immerse yourself in the video footage below.

Traditional merged seamlessly with tropical and we had a full programme to delight all ages. Our younger guests enjoyed a variety of activities from Christmas crafts and movies nights to fishing trips and treasure hunts; from pizza and mocktail making to palm leaf wreath making, all topped off with the grand arrival of Santa Claus himself on the 24th of December!

Grown-ups were looked after very well and feasted on scrumptious buffets and decadent treats courtesy of our talented culinary team who were determined to make this a celebration of gastronomy. Champagne sipping opportunities were aplenty and when paired with special excursions, entertainment, spa indulgences and the utter luxury of not having to plan Christmas gatherings at home, made for a truly wonderful escape.

We celebrated the end of 2023 and the start of 2024 with a White Party themed countdown to midnight which included a traditional Bodu Beru Show, an International DJ to help us dance the night away, and a spectacular fireworks show.

The festivities continued right up until 7th January 2024 when we rounded off the festive season celebrating Orthodox Christmas with a special set menu at Sunset Pool Cafe in the evening.

Experience the Untouched Maldives at Hideaway

From the moment you first start dreaming of a holiday in the Maldives you’ll be imagining deserted islands with pristine white sandy beaches lapped by turquoise ocean. You’ll watch those dreams unfolding into reality on the seaplane flight where the bird’s-eye-view of the islands strung across the Indian Ocean will take your breath away. Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, in Haa Alif atoll, enjoys an enviable location in the northernmost area of the Maldives, perfectly secluded and hidden away from the rest of the world.

From the moment you set foot on the island, you’ll notice how natural and untouched Hideaway is – the pristine sands, lush vegetation and clear lagoons make this a destination that surpasses expectations. Just 10% of the island has been developed, leaving 90% to nature, taken care of by our dedicated team of gardeners. As day turned to evening and the spectacular sunsets fade, the night sky becomes a twinkling blanket of stars with a clarity hard to come by in areas where there is a higher concentration of resorts.

The untouched natural beauty goes beyond the resort island, guests choosing to explore the ocean during excursions by boat will find they rarely see other boats with the exception of perhaps a local fisherman on a small boat; those embarking upon scuba diving and snorkelling adventures will find they are usually the only group at the reef. There are 30 prime dive spots – all much less crowded since there are only a few resorts in this region compared to central Maldives where its much more crowded and not as pristine. Fewer divers and snorkellers mean an abundance of marine life ranging from clouds of tiny colourful fish to the iconic mantas and whalesharks that the Maldives is so well-known for.

Browse Hideaway’s collection of private and secluded villas and get ready for a stay amidst untouched natural beauty, your hideaway awaits!
