Makunudu Island

Discover Makunudu Island

Located in the North Male Atoll, just 50 minutes by speedboat from the international airport, Makunudu Island is an absolute Maldives gem where you'll rediscover the luxury of simplicity. A privately-owned island where paradise has been preserved, you're assured of a peaceful escape, perfect for couples and honeymooners looking to unwind from the hectic pace of everyday life.

The 36 delightful Beach Bungalows, all nestling within lush tropical vegetation just steps from the pristine white sand beach, have a traditional Maldivian style with much use of local wood and stone that blends rustic charm with modern comforts. As well as a restaurant that provides an array of international flavours, plus a spa, your stay on Makunudu is all about immersing yourself in the island way of life; apart from simply relaxing, enjoy excellent snorkelling and diving in the excellent house reef, take a private sunset cruise, or lay back and be mesmerised by the star-filled night skies.
