Marking the hotel group’s first property in the area, the Radisson Blu Resort Maldives is located on an idyllic private island in the Alifu Dhaalu Atoll

In these strange times, never has the thought of a sun-drenched private island seemed quite so appealing. Enter Radisson Blu, the leading hotel group which has recently launched its debut resort in the Maldives, a location synonymous with pristine beaches, crystalline waters and the very height of R&R.

The private island resort is easily accessible from Malé’s Velana International Airport – we recommend taking a seaplane to enjoy the best views, otherwise you can opt for a short flight and speedboat ride. Located on Huruelhi Island in the Alifu Dhaalu Atoll, the Radisson Blu Resort Maldives is comprised of 128 secluded villas, some placed over water and others on the beachfront. Both come with spacious terraces, infinity pools and sublime views of the Indian Ocean from their rooms.

Surrounded by beautiful coral reefs, the new resort is an excellent spot for diving, snorkelling and marine-life spotting, while a lagoon proves ideal for watersports. Away from the beach, guests can try the different dishes on offer across the various on-site restaurants – Alifaan’s locally-caught seafood looks particularly enticing – sip on sundowners at the Mahurab wine and cocktail bar or book a rejuvenating treatment in the Blu Spa.
