Hideaway Crowned ‘Most Picturesque Resort in the Maldives’

Glossy holiday brochures and coffee table magazines depict many beautiful destinations, with Maldives perhaps being one of the most photographed in the world but it’s not often that reality lives up to the expectations after viewing the oftentimes heavily edited images that lure us to book holidays. Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa Maldives is different, it is one of those rare idyllic places on earth where reality is even better than the images and our resort has recently won the title of ‘Most Picturesque Resort in the Maldives’ – a testament to the true beauty awaiting all who book stays with us. This prestigious award was bestowed upon Hideaway by Travel Trade Maldives (TTM) Awards at the recent TTM 2023 Gala.

Hideaway lies in the relatively untouched Haa Alifi Atoll in North Maldives and the area is characterised by unspoilt white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and, once you set foot on our resort island, luxury impeccably intertwined with nature, creating a breath-taking backdrop for your holiday. The photo opportunities are as endless as the hues of blue in the sky and ocean, if you’re the kind of person who loves to share, allow all you friends at home the opportunity to see what you can see by posting on your social pages (don’t forget to tag us!) but be aware, by the time you get home they may have turned green with envy!.

International Housekeeping Week

One of the secrets behind a relaxing stay in Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa Maldives’ luxurious villas is the dedicated housekeeping team, and their provision of an immaculate and welcoming home away from home for our guests. The team’s work is noticed and appreciated every single day but especially so during International Housekeeping Week.

The week-long festivities take place every year during the second full week of September and we kicked off the celebrations with island cleaning and a get-together party. Later in the week saw us cutting and eating a delicious cake together, followed by the chance for the housekeepers to showcase their artistic skills with the bed decoration and towel art competitions. The creativity of our team at Hideaway shines through in every piece of art that adorns your bed throughout your stay, especially for special occasions such as honeymoons, anniversaries, or if you simply request a bed decoration at the reception. Head over to our Special Offers for some spectacular offers for you this season, and allow our housekeeping team to sweep you and your loved ones off your feet!

Great fun was had at the mini-olympic games that we hosted for the team at the staff beach and the week was rounded off with a closing ceremony and BBQ party. The housekeepers’ work is integral to the amazing guest experience at Hideaway but is often behind the scenes so it was a pleasure to celebrate the work of this incredible team.
