Hideaway Beach Resort – Luxury Holiday in The Maldives #LuxuryTravel
When someone mentions the Maldives it is easy to conjure up images of vast, white sandy beaches, palm trees and crystal clear blue waters. Imagining is one thing, to experience is quite another. The Maldives are a regular playground to the rich and famous and are now becoming more and more accessible to those seeking a holiday far from the madding crowd. The Hideaway Beach Resort is located on the island of Dhonakulhi, 300km north of the capital Male. Boasting a luxury spa and gym, 4 restaurants and an amazing array of outings for those wanting something more active, this is luxury at its best. The latest activity to launch at Hideaway Beach Resort is the ‘Penguin’, a semi-submersible vehicle that gives clients the chance to experience the beautiful reef systems whilst staying dry.
There is plenty to see down there too, from the beautiful, colourful fish to dolphins, sting rays, sea turtles and reef sharks. The semi-submersible gives guests the chance to explore the 5 star resort’s unique reef system with prices starting at £65.00 per person. Two floating hulls on either side of a central cabin with a compact transparent compartment that hangs from the middle and stays below the surface of the water offer an immersive undersea experience. The vehicle seats 6-8 people and is ideal for families or private parties.
The resort has access to 48 dive spots close by and endless beaches. A 7 night stay at the Hideaway Beach Resort on a half-board basis is being offered at £3,355 by Red Savannah. With an abundance of water sports, snorkelling and exotic luxuries in it’s secluded location, this is a perfect place to discover the wonders of the Indian Ocean’s vibrant aquatic wildlife.
For those food enthusiasts who love to sample fresh seafood and exotic flavours there is a variety of restaurants to choose from.
Matheefauru is a sand-floored ocean-front restaurant which offers a warm welcome to food lovers with it’s expansive and daily changing buffet where the chefs offer live cooking demonstrations of speciality dishes to tantalise the tastebuds.
