Makunudu Island Resort is a private island, situated in North Malé Atoll, in the Maldives. Accessible via a 50-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport, Makunudu Island sweeps you into the warm embrace of an original Maldivian retreat. Where glistening beaches give way to the crystal clear waters of a turquoise lagoon, merging into unending ocean views. Where tranquility seeps soothingly into your soul, and genuine hospitality welcomes you like a friend. A rare haven, beautifully untouched, that even for those who travel the world, retains a special place in the heart. Slip off your shoes, slip into island time…

The accommodation type is Beach Bungalows set throughout the island, just steps away from the ocean.

Adventure and relaxation abound in and on the clear Maldivian waters, from admiring the stunning coral reefs and rich marine life as you snorkel in our house reef, to trying a free introductory dive or exploring deeper at spectacular nearby dive sites. Other pursuits include windsurfing, waterskiing and a spot of night fishing on a traditional dhoni in the company of local fishermen.
