Makunudu Island

An award-winning, romantic island hideaway in the Maldives, with stunning and intimate beach bungalows - includes all-inclusive board and all travel

For an indescribably beautiful, gimmick-free getaway in the Maldives, look no further than this under-the-radar island and the multi-award-winning sanctuary sitting harmoniously upon it. Surrounded by the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, Makunudu offers the kind of low-key luxury that can be hard to find in the world's most glamorous archipelago. Add to that being named both the region's Luxury Honeymoon Hotel and Romantic Luxury Hotel of the Year at the last year's World Luxury Hotel Awards, along with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and you start to get the picture.

Measuring just six acres and fringed by soda-white sands, this is likely to be the closest you’ll get to a desert island experience, so bring a well-selected soundtrack. There’s no pool, or over-water villas - just natural beauty in a lens-defying league and impeccable Maldivian hospitality. Relax and have fun in paradise with snorkelling and kayaking, or go deeper and explore the kaleidoscopic house reef with a diving lesson - there’s a PADI centre on site. And a must: venture out on an island-hopping excursion to see more of this utterly breathtaking region.

Like your beach retreats tastefully rustic? Bed down in a bungalow that’s true to tradition but subtly modern. Think local woods, soft drapes, natural hues and a tropical garden shower. If you can resist those sweet thatched roofs, you have more willpower than we do…

Good to know


An environmental tax of $6 USD per person, per night is payable at the resort. This 'green tax' funds conservation in the Maldives and is applicable across the region.

Please note that both your outbound flight and your inbound flight are overnight, so bear this in mind when planning the time you'll be away for.

For more details, please see our FAQ page.

What is a deposit?

In short, you pay Secret Escapes a non-refundable deposit to secure your holiday, then you pay the holiday supplier the remaining balance of the holiday - as advertised - at a later date (before you travel).

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
