STORY: JENNY SOUTHAN AT GLOBETRENDER. IMAGE: KUDADOO MALDIVES PRIVATE ISLAND GETAWAY LOVE ISLAND A new hideaway in the Maldives is being billed as the world’s first ‘truly all-inclusive’ private island. Kudadoo is a string of 15 villas perched on stilts over the turquoise ocean, with a sweeping jetty connecting to the perfect, white-sand desert island of Lhaviyani Atoll. Guests can order anything they want, any time, without paying anything more than the room rate (which starts at £2,450 per night). Whether you want a case of Champagne, three full-body massages a day, a midnight banquet or five hours on a jet ski, you won’t get billed anything extra at check-out. The resort sets out to deliver a bespoke experience to every guest, with personal menus designed by the chef, 24-hour butlers and personal trainers to help work off that lobster linguine. Activities include swimming with manta rays, free-diving with turtles and ‘blue light’ night snorkelling, which reveals fluorescing anemones, shrimps and brain corals glowing in the dark. The Kudadoo is eco-conscious, too, sourcing power from 1,000 solar panels that double as a roof over the floating restaurant and sun deck. kudadoo.com THEJAGUAR 9
