overview

Makunudu Island lies on North Male Atoll, tucked away amid pristine white sand and lush vegetation. It is one the last unspoilt islands in The Maldives with untouched coral and original features throughout. A great place to kick back and have fun.

One of the last islands in the Maldives which remains original. No water villas, no pool, one restaurant, one bar and one type of accommodation. Refreshingly uncomplicated and fantastic value for money.

Rooms

Scattered across the island, you'll discover 36 Deluxe Beach Bungalows nestled amidst lush tropical vegetation, which come in double or twin configurations. These charming bungalows exude traditional charm, crafted with locally sourced timber and stone and boast lofty thatched ceilings. They come with open-air shower and private sun loungers and intentionally lack in-room televisions, allowing you to fully engage with the island. Complimentary Wi-Fi is however available for those seeking connectivity.

Food

Indulge in a delightful range of dining options at the island's sole restaurant; Ara Iru. Recently, the addition of Japanese and Spanish specialties has expanded the gastronomic offerings ensuring a diverse selection. Enjoy the unique theme nights hosted twice a week here. For a more intimate and personalised affair, candlelit dinners can be arranged on the beach or within the comfort of your bungalow.

Activity

Embark on an array of invigorating activities available at the island's dive centre. Immerse yourself in the underwater wonders with PADI dive courses or explore the vibrant marine life through snorkelling lessons. Witness the enchanting spectacle of nurse sharks during a memorable sunset snorkelling session. Also enjoy kayaking, fishing, windsurfing and paddle boarding.

Wellness

The Aavun Spa offers a serene haven where you can indulge in a fusion of Maldivian, Asian, and European spa techniques and traditions.
