Milaidhoo Island opens in November this year
Milaidhoo Island (milaidhoo.com ) in Maldives is a new boutique luxury resort, spread over 13 acres, in the Baa Atoll's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Situated close to Hanifaru Bay, it’s 126km north-west of Malé. The coral reef, which encircles the island, is a protected area and noted as an outstanding snorkelling and diving site. The island, with abundant with tropical greenery, measures just 300 by 180m and is fringed by white sand beaches. The hotel has said it is ensuring minimum impact on the coral reef. Each of Milaidhoo's 50 private villas have been designed by a local Maldivian architect.
