Jimmy Im writes in Business Insider regarding his stay at Kudadoo Resort in Maldives. ‘I've also stayed at 10 ultraluxe properties in the Maldives. Even so, Kudadoo, a private island resort that opened last December, managed to exceed my expectations.’
He was picked up by Kudadoo staff in a private car and escorted to the resort's private lounge, where he waited for the seaplane. The private 15-seat seaplane was operated by Kudadoo's sister resort, Hurawalhi, a luxury property known for its underwater restaurant and dive center. Kudadoo is a six-minute boat ride from Hurawalhi.
Kudadoo Maldives is in the Lhaviyani Atoll, a group of precious islands north of Malé International Airport. The 40-minute seaplane flight had breath-taking views of islands across the vast Indian Ocean. Every guest is assigned a private butler Jimmy’s butler promptly escorted him to the residence, where check-in takes place.
The thoughtful design of the villas ensures plenty of privacy: You can't see your neighbours while you're in your residence. His had Japanese-inspired, environmentally conscious design features, and the main area included high ceilings, handmade furniture, a 54-inch TV, a surround stereo system, a well-stocked bar, snacks, and automatic curtains. He was greeted by a variety of snacks and all food and beverages are unlimited.
‘My 144-square-foot overwater infinity pool was among the largest en suite private pools I've swum in. It came equipped with a floating bean bag I never wanted to leave.’ The overwater restaurant had indoor and outdoor seating. The menu featured various international and local cuisine, like Thai, Indian, Maldivian, and Italian by a French chef. He says that the experience at Kudadoo resort blew him away.
