If you want to stay anywhere in the Maldives, make sure you’re in the Baa Atoll, now recognised as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. This ensures proximity to the best dive sites (and the manta rays cleaning station in Hanifaru Bay) but also guaranteed peace and quiet, away from the built-up areas elsewhere in the Maldives. Handily, Milaidhoo is located in the Baa Atoll, on an island just 300 by 180 metres. Their entry level rooms are huge, water pool villas, set on stilts over the ocean with your own, private infinity pool. Choose from various restaurants; the standout being the Ba Theli Lounge and Restaurant that serves island-inspired cuisine in a setting shaped like a traditional dhoni sailing boat.
