Isolated in Luxury, Escape Reality in a Safe Haven
Isolated, a much sought after state of being at this strange point in time. There are only a handful of places in the world where you can find yourself truly isolated from the rest of the world, and Maldives is one of them. The country is famous for its unique geography which offers the One Island One Resort concept, where resort guests have the luxury of being the only people on the island along with the staff.
Well, Maldives took this luxury one step further and introduced the Private Island concept where your guests are the only guests on the island, offering ultimate privacy, luxury and isolation. Guests who fly into the destination on a private jet can get a private seaplane or luxury yacht to the Private Island with very minimal contact with the outside world. It is a great option for families seeking to escape to the sunshine with the comfort of knowing that their loved ones are safe.
These Private Islands come in different sizes ranging from 4 to 9 bedroom villas and feature a swimming pool, spa, gym, water sport center and everything else you will expect to find in a luxury five star resort. Your guest will be looked after by the in-house staff that include private chefs, butlers, spa therapists, fitness coaches, water sports specialists, babysitters and even tutors for the little ones. Hummingbird works closely with resorts to ensure that we tailor every private island experience to your guest’s needs. There is no request too big or too elaborate.
We have selected our top three private islands below which can all be accessed by private jet followed by private seaplane or luxury yacht. Each island we have selected, is self sufficient and your own little slice of paradise to explore. It’s never too early to start dreaming of your holiday and when the time is right, these private islands are waiting to welcome your guests.
