We just returned from an 8 night stay at Kudadoo. I would have given Kudadoo a higher star rating if it was an option.

The trip was seamless. Upon picking up our luggage and going through customs we were met by a Kudadoo representative that took us to the sea plan check in, then off to the sea plane lounge. The lounge was very comfortable and there is even a deck outside to sit and watch the sea planes take off and land. After a short stay we were whisked off to our sea plane. It was a quick 45 minute flight, with one stop. We landed in between our resort and it’s sister resort, and were met by our butler, Anas.

We had contact with Anas several weeks before we left for our trip. He is incredible. He thought of everything….meals, excursions, spa treatment. Anas made this trip extra special for us. I cannot say enough good things about him.

The food at Kudadoo is awesome. I could go on and on about the food and cocktails—. It is so hard to believe how fantastic it is. It is the best my husband and I have ever had on a vacation. There were so many choices. We choose to have breakfast and lunch our room, and it never disappointed. In the evening we would go the retreat for a cocktail and dinner. You have to try their homemade ice cream it is to die for.

We had dinner one evening art 5.8. It is something everyone should do. There is nothing like having dinner underwater and watching the fish, turtles, and eagle ray swim by.

The sommelier was fantastic. We enjoyed a wonderful cheese, meat, and wine tasting with him. He brought out one of the best goat cheeses I have ever had. He was always available at dinner to give a great wine recommendation. He is also so knowledgeable about wine and cheese, when you visit, make sure you spend some time with him.. for us - we learned so much from him.

The spa is everything you could ever want. The views from the treatment rooms over the ocean are breathtaking. The spa therapists were wonderful. I think we had almost every treatment possible, and not one did disappoint. My husband also had his first facial, and now he is hooked.

We did serval tours, snorkeling, night snorkeling, jet skiing, private island, and charter the Bella to go swim the the mantas. Each one was great. But chartering the Bella was out of this world. The boat and crew are amazing. We were so fortunate to snorkel with the mantas. They are huge amazing creatures. We also were able to snorkel with the turtles and visit a local island. 8 hour was just the right amount of time that we were not rushed, and were able to see everything.

The beach is great. There are cabanas and beach chairs. Anas kindly set them up for us every time we used the beach. For the most part it was our private beach as there was no one there but us.

The room is more than beautiful. The outdoor shower was great. The amenities in the room were over the top. The bed is big and comfortable. There are even massage tables in the room if you want a massage in the room, vs the spa. And the pool….it is large and just…WOW- what a view. We can also easily snorkel from your room if you would like.

The only bad was that were forced too return to reality and head home.

Thank you Ali Shameen for running such a amazing resort. It would not be the same without out your attention to detail. Also, thank you for the astronomy lessons, my husband loved them.

This is a small resort, which we personally love. The attention to detail for EVERYTHING is over the top. The entire staff always thought of everything and more that they could do for us. There are too many people to thank that I can’t name everyone names….but thank you to the chefs, the waiters, the bar staff, housekeeping, the spa ladies, the tour crew, and so many more. After 8 nights at Kudadoo you were no longer the staff— you became our friends.

We cannot wait for our next visit to Kudadoo.

This resort is more than amazing and words cannot describe it.
Not even if you take all the former reviews and multiply all positive words by 100.
We loved every single moment of our six day stay at this resort.
Actually already when we were met by Kudadoo’s staff in Male airport the incredible service started.

Some weeks before arrival we started to comunicate with our butler, Hana, about our wishes for our holiday in order to make a plan for our stay (dinning, activities ect). By this we could relax upon arrival as many things then were scheduled according to our wishes. However, it is still possible to make or change plans during the stay.

Our butler, Hana, was just amazing. She secured that we were treated like royals and that we did not have to think about anything than just relaxing as she took care of everything. She and our housekeeper surprised us several times by arranging nice and beautiful decorated baths in the bathtub when we fx. came back to the resident after dinner or an activity.It was SO nice to have Hana.

Our housekeeper (sorry cannot remember his name) was also amazing with all his animal creations made of towels.
We really got scared one evening when we returned to the residence and was welcomed by a gigant crocodile with light in its eyes and mouth😂😂

Our residence was no. 8 and from both the bed and deck we had the most beautiful view to the sea.
The residence itself was just outstanding with exclusive materials used and with a clearly Japanese inspiration.
There is a relaxed atmosphere in the residence - it was so nice.

We did a lot of activities such as sunrise breakfast at Dream Island, wine and cheese tasting (very skilled sommelier), jet ski, fly boarding, paddle board, snorkeling (they have a nice house reef), diving, turtle tour, sunset dolphin cruise and lot of spa treatments (girls at spa are very skilled), private yoga sessions with the Fantastic yoga instructor Nandini (nandinisp_om_yoga) on the deck at our residence.

We also had destination dining in the jungle, at the pool by the retreat, romantic dinner at our deck and floating breakfast in our pool.

The food was delicius and if you do not want any of the dishes mentioned in the menu card you can also ask them to
cock a dish according to your wish. We fx. got a tarte au citron and a special made chocolate cake.

When Kudadoo says Anything, Anytime, Anywhere we can also only say: “THEY MEAN IT”

Kudadoo gave us an unforgetable holiday - we would like to come back to this paradis.

Highly recommend Kudadoo - everything is impeccable in this little island! From the service to the room to the experience, the Kudadoo team made great effort to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves and they certainly delivered.

Butler
Our butler, Chloe, is extremely attentive, detailed and meticulous. She planned our itineraries well to accommodate all of our needs and wants. She also went out of the way and ensured that all our requests are fulfilled. She definitely delivered the resort's Anything, Anytime, Anywhere concept!

Food
We were very well-fed by the kitchen crew during our 6D5N stay. The menu is extensive and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, especially the curry! Dining experience was made better with service from Abdullah! Daman also made really delicious bespoke cocktails at the bar!

Spa Treatment
We are terribly picky about our spa treatments but Nita & Vetris met our high expectations! Their massage techniques are great and it was such a joy to receive treatments from them after our sports activities.

Sports Activities
Despite being first-timers for most of the sports activities, the trainer guided us well. We had so much fun in the waters and wished we had time for more.

Kudadoo spoiled us so much that it makes it really hard to visit other resorts now. Can't wait to return to Kudadoo again!

Kudadoo is the perfect hotel for private vacation, almost all time we felt private atmosphere, because we didn’t meet different clients (only in the dinner). But our vacation was not boring, because our butler (Shaufa) made our schedule different and full of activity and considered the interests each member of our family (3 people)
Hotel's restaurant has big menu for different tastes (meat, fish, vegetarian dishes) and big choice of vine and cheeses.
There is spa and gym (with coach) and you can choose different variants of program.
The residence was cleaned 2 times in day. it was clean all the time with fresh towels and bathrobe. if you need more you can call staff and ask. there are everything that you need for vacation in residence even hats(if you forget).
Staff is attentive and friendly
We had our vacation in march and we were there 2 weeks. The weather was awesome warm but with light breeze.
i definitely recommend this hotel!!!

Kudadoo delivers on their motto of anything, anytime anywhere. Naajy, our butler for our 10 day stay was able to accommodate our every need and even anticipate things before we even had to ask. Once we arrived on this magical island he was able to shift schedules quickly and make adjustments to fit our requests. Rauf got to know our dining preferences quickly and work with the chefs to create many of our most memorable dining experiences ever! Darma is a genius in creating cocktails and kept us well hydrated during many afternoons at the pool and champagne canapes at sunset. I cannot say enough about the private residences over the crystal clear blue waters of the Maldives. They are well furnished, highly functionally designed and stocked according to our requests. We originally planned this trip as a once in a lifetime adventure of indulgence and relaxation, but within a few days of our arrival we were already discussing our next visit. The diving was spectacular, jet skiing with the native dolphins that surround the resort, sunset fishing, snorkeling with the giant manta rays and most of all the feeling of being the only guests on the island by every host at Kudadoo! Thank you for making a dream holiday our reality.

I have never spent so much per night and felt so much value. It all starts with your butler, in our case Naajy, WhatsApping several weeks before our arrival and getting to know our wishes for our vacation at Kudadoo. The personalized experience only got better as we arrived and throughout our 4 days. We were met at Male airport and shepherded along the way never being left alone until we entered our spectacular overwater bungalow. No checkin necessary, Naajy took care of all arrangements. After a brief tour of the wine and cheese cellars, the cheese rivals any French restaurant, we sat outside our residence and enjoyed some handpicked cheese, charcuterie, and premier cru Chablis followed by some Sushi as we settled in. After a short rest we headed to the spa for the first of many amazing massages and other spa treatments. I should also mention that the sea plane ride was smooth, and we were picked up by speedboat at the neighboring island Kuredo and whisked back to Kudadoo in less than 10 minutes. After a short rest we proceeded to dinner and met our waiters Abdullah, Richy, and David. All were so attentive as well as the wine steward. The menu is vast but every item we ordered throughout our stay was cooked to perfection. We were excited to meet Harshal, executive chef, and we’re fortunate to spend time in his kitchen as he gave us cooking lessons. He cooked amazing Waygu steak and Australian rack of lamb one night and the next night he cooked the best tempura Prawns. We videoed his demo and will hope to replicate at home. We had so much fun on the Jet skis, thank you Ali, especially Jetskiing home from lunch at neighboring Hurwalhi island. The lunch there was also fabulous, enjoyed a nice Rose with lunch. We were warmly greeted there by Mr. Baha, the GM. I could go on and on but what one should know is that the Anywhere , Anytime, Anyplace line is true. This is not your typical all-inclusive, this is all-inclusive on steroids. If you are reading this review you are probably considering several of the high end resorts in the Maldives, some with famous hotel chain names associated with them. There is no other resort like this one. 15 rooms with the AAA concept, Kudadoo is unlike any other. Thanks again to all at Kudadoo that provided a lifetime experience for my wife and me. Especially thanks to our butler Naajy who made it all happen. We will see you again.

What can I say, Luxury to the Max! When we arrived, we were escorted to our room and did not have to go to check-in and file out a bunch of paperwork. We were greeted by our butler, Hana. She was perfect, helpful, knowledgeable, gracious and a little ball of energy. She set up everything for us and was at our door on time to pick us up, we never had to wait on her. Staff in the restaurant was great, food was excellent, Wine and Cheese room was nothing we have seen anywhere we have traveled. We had wonderful choices on the menu, never eating the same thing twice. On several nights the chef would come out and make sure the food was to our liking. We are divers and Pro-Divers and Jean the dive master did a wonderful job getting us to some great dive spots.
Now let's talk about the real Heaven part of the trip, The Spa area, we had every kind of massage that is available and the ladies that run the spa did an outstanding job. We felt like brand new people every day after our spa treatments.

We are already looking to head back in July for more rest and relaxing.

Thanks to Hana and Bradley (GM) for a wonderful trip.

Just got back from five days at Kudadoo - Wow!!! From the moment we set foot on the property to when we left we were thoroughly pampered. We were there as a family ranging from 4 to 75 in terms of age - every single one of us had the best time! The rooms were amazingly comfortable, food was delicious and snorkeling excursions were incredible! Paddle tennis and scavenger hunt kept the kids busy and the spa was a big hit with our Mom. All the staff were super friendly and helpful - our personal butler Shaufa was extremely attentive and made our holiday completely stress free. Chef Harsha made the most delicious meals for our whole family taking extra care with dietary requirements (vegan) Zahu and his team took us on the best snorkeling excursions, we saw turtles, sharks, an eel, and tons more! We are so looking forward to returning very very soon!!!

We hasten to inform you that our stay in such an unusual place as your island left us with incredible impressions!

We are absolutely lucky! We are incredibly impressed with your stay. We thought we had the best butler on the island! He was very suitable for us in terms of temperament, we highly appreciated his delicacy, dignified behavior and dedication to his work. We were very comfortable

I would also like to note that you have a very well organized leisure time for guests, despite the fact that initially we wanted privacy and relaxation, we managed to get new impressions from some of the entertainment offered and it was unforgettable. Especially the sunset trip with the dolphins. There could not be anything more beautiful on the final evening!

Special thanks to the chef who daily surprises guests with his culinary masterpieces, the food has always been impressive, apparently the chef adds magic to it).

Long heavy rains allowed us to fully enjoy the convenience of the villa, despite the bad weather, we were not afraid to be there, the villa is very fundamental and solid. For convenience, it has more than you might need).
Special thanks for the opportunity to receive massages directly at the villa, in the first days, it is very convenient after a long flight.

We hope that we will have the opportunity to visit you again.

The staff, the butler, the spa, the underwater restaurant, the personalized service...everything is very tasteful, their staffs are more than friendly and sympathetic. It would've been the best service you can afford.

They play no games when they talk about privacy. Everyone made it true. They give you the sense that you're the only guest in the resort

The resort is very private. Yes there are couples there, but everyone keeps to themselves. We litterly did not see anyone until dinner.. and that would be only a few people. I would think a single traveler would be very comfortable at Kudadoo.

I am similarly interested - when I previously visited the Maldives there was a tip box at reception where we about $10USD/day to be divided amoung the staff. Is there something similar here? What about the butlers?
Answer from Stephen
We just got back, download the app and they have a very long wine list, there are a lot included, we drank every night with dinner and never paid for a bottle.

What are the tipping practices? For your butler? Spa staff. Dive staff?
