The Compass Pool Bar

Here's the place to chill out and fall in love with our infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. When hunger calls, we're right here with a tempting drinks list of the freshest of fresh juices, infused waters, cocktails and light meals, such as gourmet pizzas from our wood-fired oven; bento boxes; fresh salads; sandwiches etc. The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down; find yourself a sun lounger and watch the area transform into a laid-back chillout lounge. Open from 09.00 until late night with light meals available between 12.00 and 18.00 every day.

Shoreline Grill Wine room

It's time to pop a cork or two. Whether you choose to stop off here before dinner, or leave this as a post-postprandial treat or perhaps an afternoon eye-opener is up to you. Chill out in the superb cool temperatures of our Wine Room with a flight of wines and canapes, or ask our sommelier to organise a specialist wine tasting for you. Open for private bookings.

Shoreline Grill Chef's Table

If you’ve ever wanted your own private chef to cook for you, here’s your chance. At our chef’s table, our team of chefs are ready to cook up a perfect dinner, just the way you want it, right before your eyes at our teppanyaki-style table. For inspiration, we offer a choice of set menus, as well as an a la carte menu to pick and choose from. Open for dinner daily from 19.00 until 22.30. Can be opened for lunch on request.

The Shoreline Grill

This beachfront grill is where you’ll find superb meats and freshly caught local fish and seafood, simply cooked and beautifully presented. You can dine barefoot on the sand in a private beachfront pavilion, or inside the grill for a fantastic view of the show kitchens. We think several visits will be required including at least one evening at our chef's "teppanyaki" table where our chef will ask what you feel like eating and cook accordingly. Or why not arrange a pre-dinner wine tasting session in our wine room with our sommelier one evening? This is where you’ll find barefoot informality at its best. Easy, simple, no fuss. Open for dinner daily from 19.00 until 22.30.

Ba’theli lounge & restaurant

Welcome aboard the only restaurant in the world set on a boat in a lagoon featuring gourmet dishes of inspired island cuisine from the Maldivian Spice Route.

Our story begins over 5,000 years ago when The Maldives became a key port of call for traders sailing from Indonesia and India to Arabia with cargoes of cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, cloves, ginger and pepper. The Maldivians bartered coconuts, sun-dried fish, cordage, cowrie shells and sails woven from coconut fibre for spice, rice, ceramics and silks. Locally-made cargo boats, called ba’theli in the local language, sailed throughout the archipelago with these goods, spreading knowledge about different lands, their customs and cuisine. At Ba'theli, the story continues as our chefs create dishes of finesse based on the epicurean delights of the old Spice Routes using only the finest ingredients, blending herbs and spices to enhance natural flavours.

Guests dine on the ‘deck’ of the restaurant where, underneath starry night skies, the team of chefs deliver an island influenced menu of locally inspired and sourced dishes. There’s also indoor seating in air-conditioned comfort where you can watch the sea-life below through glass floors. Expect to find seafood and traditional local flavours intelligently reinterpreted for the 21st century. Open for dinner daily from 19.00 to 22.30. Ba'theli Lounge is open from sunset until late.

This is where you’ll feel a million miles from everyday life. You’ll discover inspiring moments that enrich your life and excite your spirit of adventure. Don’t just go fishing: instead join a Maldivian fisherman and learn how it’s done here. Don’t just go on an excursion; instead let a local take you by the hand and guide you through our culture and history. Don’t just do a cooking class; accept chef’s invitation to pick some local herbs with him and create a new dish together. Don’t just drink cocktails; join our sommelier or bar tender on a tasting class and see if you can concoct something good enough to make it onto the drinks menu.

Milaidhoo Diving

While the beauty of the Maldives is breath-taking, what you’ll find below the surface is even more moving. Our experienced diving team have the keys to the best dive sites in the atoll and welcome everyone, from novices making their first dive to experts logging their 1000th dive.

At Milaidhoo we have a five star PADI dive centre that offers house reef diving, boat diving, private diving, night diving, fluo night dives, Manta Ray diving and nitrox.

PADI Five Star Dive Resorts are committed to providing quality diver training and continuing education programs that include dive experiences and environmental awareness.

Milaidhoo Watersports

Water babies will love our collection of non-motorised watersports, which include kayaks (complimentary for our guests) as well as transparent kayaks, windsurfers, catamarans, stand up paddle boards (SUPs) and Zayaks. Snorkelling equipment, which can be used free of charge during your stay, can be borrowed from here.

Milaidhoo Excursions

Take a trip to a local island and see what life is really like in a Maldivian village or sail away to your own private deserted sandbank where a feast awaits. Cruise with dolphins at sunset with champagne and canapes on board one of our luxury craft or just set sail under the starry night skies and be at one with the universe.

Marine Biologist

With the UNESCO biosphere reserve and the world-famous Hanifaru Bay on our doorstep, this is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the incredible wildlife in the area from our two resident marine biologists. Here you may discover what makes whale sharks tick, why manta rays dance, what makes dolphins smile and help with identification and conservation practices.

We offer a 'be a marine biologist' programme where the curious can shadow our biologist and learn more about what she does.

This ocean country stocked with plentiful fish calls to anyone with the soul of a fisherman. Our big game fishing boat can take you out to the high seas looking for wahoo, sailfish, swordfish, giant trevally or marlin for our catch and release programme.

Alternatively, let our guides show you the local way to fish by hand from a traditional Maldivian fishing boat.

Hanifaru Bay

The jewel of the UNESCO biosphere reserve is undoubtedly Hanifaru Bay, the place where – in season – the world’s largest groupings of manta rays can be seen. This is also the place for whale shark spotting. Snorkelling with these peaceful ocean giants is an unmissable experience.

The season runs from June to November each year and sightings depend on many factors such as tide times, moon phases and currents. We plan to run three trips a week to Hanifaru Bay (weather permitting) and can also offer private excursions for just the two of you accompanied by our marine biologist.

Let's talk about love. Let's talk about how you and the one you love most in the world can say 'I do' on the shores of Milaidhoo Maldives. We've got a range of romantic ideas for you and it would be our greatest pleasure to help you write your story of your perfect wedding by tailor-making a day you always dreamed of. Simply email us at to begin writing your first chapter as Mr and Mrs.

Each star is unique and is only named once. You're welcome to choose what you want to name your star and in which constellation it'll be located.

If that wasn’t enough, our chef will bake you our signature cake when you arrive.

Please note: this is only for honeymooners who’ve booked our honeymoon package and are staying a minimum of four nights with us. Our ‘Perfect Honeymoon’ package is only for couples traveling within 6 months of the date of their wedding, and a copy of the wedding certificate must be presented to us at check in. Should we have any doubts about the certificate or if you don’t meet the honeymoon requirements, we reserve the right to withhold some or all benefits.

With notice, we can create the most romantic staging for your proposal, from deserted islands at sunset to candlelit beaches under the full moon.
