Its sister property, Kuda Huraa, is a lushly tropical private island to the south, renowned for its world-class surf and easy charm.

Exotic jungle greenery is flanked by immaculate white beaches and one of the Maldives’ largest natural lagoons, while the surrounding waters – some of the richest in the Maldives – offer exceptional opportunities for diving, water sports and conservation.
