Seeking privacy is easy in the Maldives. The destination’s selection of secluded private islands lends itself to tranquillity – so if you’re searching for a Maldives private beach hut, you’ve come to the right place. 

Sounds like an absolute dream, right? Even the most simplistic Maldives private villa oozes luxury and paradise - all you need is never-ending ocean views and your own private pool to keep you satisfied for days, even weeks on end. 

If you’re wondering where to find the most private Maldives villas, we’ve rounded up a list of the biggest, most isolated accommodation options this idyllic destination has to offer – from whimsical water villas to entire private islands home to one-of-a-kind residences. So be sure to have your passport at the ready.
 

The Muraka at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

You’ll experience ultimate luxury with a stay in The Muraka at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. Crowned as the resort’s largest residence, it’s located on its very own private island, making it perfect for families or larger groups seeking total privacy away from the main resort complex. Plus, you’ll have absolutely everything you need within your own four walls.

The Muraka’s best feature is without a doubt the breath-taking undersea master bedroom complete with an overhead glass ceiling made for watching the sea life elegantly swim past. When (or if) you do decide to venture outside, you’ll have exclusive access to a bunch of private excursions – including hopping on board your very own luxury yacht or diving with a film crew who’ll capture every second of your once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The Crescent at Niyama Private Islands

Planning a huge trip for your extended family or a large group of friends? One of the best Maldives private villas is The Crescent at Niyama Private Islands

As a quintet of luxurious over-water villas huddled together, this accommodation sleeps up to a total of 14 adults and eight children – meaning you can have an epic holiday all together celebrating a special occasion.

All five pavilions are set on stilts over the translucent lagoon and come with their own private pools. This means you can wake up and decide whether to plunge into the pool or take a dip in the ocean. You also have attentive butlers serving you throughout your stay and a dedicated chef who’ll cook up big delicious dinners at sunset.

The Maldives’ hotels and resorts are naturally private. All of the accommodation types on offer boast a sense of seclusion like no other destination in the world, especially when you consider retreating to your very own private island or in a luxury villa propped up in the heart of the ocean. If you fancy something smaller and more low-key, a Maldives private beach hut will do the job just fine.
