Highest level of private holiday in Maldives can be enjoyed when you book a private island exclusively for your stay. There are few options and one of the best stands out as Ithaafushi by Waldorf Astoria. This is a tiny island located next to Waldorf Astoria Maldives resort in Kaafu Atoll. It takes about 40 minutes to get there by luxury yacht. Guests who arrive Maldives in private jets can park there aircrafts at Velana International Airport and get pampered in private luxury within minutes.
Ithaafushi can accommodate about 20 guests in 3 different villas. One of the 2 main villas is located over the water and other by the beach. The remaining is an accommodation residence primarily for friends or family members. The 2 villas mentioned before are the primary residences and they come with private pool in each. There is a full flexed spa on the island, sports facilities and an entertainment hub that offers indoor games.
Despite being a tiny island this resort offers extravagant dining options and personal butler can organize the meals on the beach, in the villa, or any location of the island. All the restaurants are located in the near-by Waldorf Astoria resort where guests can choose from 11 different outlets. It takes only 3 minutes to get there by shuttle boat that is available at all times. Having the main resort so close, opens up huge possibilities including watersports and diving. Parasailing is something very popular around here as it mesmerizes you with views of lagoon and luxury villas at bird’s eye view.
The private island has its own house reef where guests can do snorkeling. Your personal butler can accompany you for safety reasons. It is also important to wear life jacket. The sea currents are often unpredictable for foreigners and they change at different locations of the island. The butler and watersports team have experience and they know the conditions.
Snorkeling is something that often makes you tired, just like any other physical activity it takes lot of energy swim, especially if the current is strong and you swim against it. Following the current is the easy way to do snorkeling but it does not always work. On the other hand, some physical activity is important for a healthy body. A full body massage in the spa is rejuvenating right after snorkeling or any physical activity.
Ithaafushi is an exclusive private island that you can rent for your holiday. Unlike other islands, Ithaafushi does not allow reservation of individual villas by different guests. This ensure that there are no strangers on the private island during your stay. At the same time it makes the holiday more expensive as you have to pay for the entire island. But, this is a premium class of hotel concept that is only for the right tourists who can afford it and who wants just that. Celebrities often can’t enjoy holiday with other guests as they would notice and pay unwanted attention while the celebrity seeks to unwind in privacy and freedom.
Public opinion is very important for celebrities. When they are in public they have to maintain their good looks, behave in certain ways and care about other’s opinions about them. This is sometimes overwhelming and it needs private getaways to enjoy as normal people do. At Ithaafushi they can be just who they are, it is their own world. Other’s opinions don’t count when you are in your private paradise.
