Most Instagrammable spots at Hideaway

Often referred to as ‘last paradise on Earth’, the Maldives is one of the most photogenic places in the world with its pristine white sandy beaches and turquoise lagoons!

While walking along the beach at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, Maldives, there are some amazing spots that are the perfect backdrop for some memorable Instagram pictures…

North Point
As the name suggests, North Point is located on the northern sand spit at the resort, with breathtaking, unobstructed views of the Ocean. It is a great spot to take pictures at sunrise and sunset. There are two swings located at North Point for your photos.

Meeru Pool
When walking down towards the heart of the island, make a stop at Meeru Pool for a shot on the wooden bridge over the pool itself, in the egg swing surrounded by sunbeds or on the two separate swings close to Meeru Bar!

Matheefaru Pavilions
Overlooking the Ocean and the sunset, these two over-water private dining pavilions are ideal for a photo, and a romantic dinner…!

Sunset Pool Café
At Sunset Pool Café, a picture from the infinity pool or from the double swing next to the water villas entrance is a must!

Beach villas’ hammock
From the comfort of your private garden in your beach villa, you can take unforgettable pictures on your very own hammock facing the beach.

Personal butler’s experience at Hideaway

At Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, our team of personal butlers will show you the way around the island while making your stay as memorable as possible. From the moment you set foot on the island, you will be looked after by your own personal butler.

No matter what the request is, your trusted host is there to help you with everything from unpacking luggage to organising dining experiences and excursions or even setting up a bed under the stars.

Hideaway bottled water

Bottled water – pure and simple

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated whilst holidaying somewhere so gloriously hot and sunny as the Maldives. We also know about the harm that single-use plastics are doing to the world’s oceans and plastic water bottles play a big part in this global problem facing marine creatures such as turtles that are prolific on the reefs of this tropical island nation. At Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa this was a dilemma that had to be faced and the result is a water bottling plant supplying all the island’s needs without a plastic bottle in sight!

Hideaway guests are able to enjoy deliciously pure and simple water in refillable chic glass bottles and the process is carried out on the island, making it even more environmentally friendly. An average of 600 bottles a day are refilled for consumption – that’s a lot of plastic bottles not ending up in the ocean.

The water processing plant is kept scrupulously clean with strict hygiene practices adhered to. The bottles themselves are sterilized in a special machine between each use and, for peace of mind, samples are sent away to Male each month for testing. Water is available in 500 ml or 1 litre bottles with a choice of still or sparkling.

Hideaway is one of the few resorts in the Maldives leading the way in the fight against single use plastic water bottles, only a few other resorts are able to offer this environmentally sustainable solution to staying hydrated.

Balinese Massage

Indulge in a Lomi Massage at Hideaway Spa

From the friendly welcome smiles to the relaxing atmosphere of the treatment rooms, to the professional standard therapists, it’s clear to see that Hideaway Spa treatments are special in every way, enabling you to restore balance and harmony between your mind and body.

Thanks to an extensive spa menu, there is a high chance that you will return to Hideaway Spa many times during your stay with us. The one treatment you should block time for though is the Lomi massage, one of our signature treatments. It is the perfect remedy when you are feeling jet lagged after your journey to paradise. Similarly, this treatment is great for those days that you’ve overdone it under the hot Maldivian sun. It’s also great to simply unwind and relax.

The Lomi massage involves our therapists working gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing you to relax and give in to the nurturing touch. To help smooth and nourish the skin, an aromatic vitamin C balm, from our Natura Bissé products range, is used as moisturiser during the massage.

The Lomi massage is a 50-minute or an 80-minute indulgence that can be booked as a couple’s treatment, or individual pampering for all those who need to have some time on their own.
