It’s the last day of my 5 night stay at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. Not often does this happen, but I really don’t want to go. The sadness is real, and hitting me hard like a freight train. From start to finish this, stay was a great one.
It all started with a flight from Bangalore, India to Male, Maldives. Upon our arrival at the Male Airport, we were greeted by Ali, a very friendly staff member of the Park Hyatt Hadahaa. He greeted us and made us feel comfortable before escorting us to the Mooninmaa Airport Lounge. At this airport lounge we had about an hour to wait for our domestic flight, so we had a quick coffee and snack before boarding.
Ali then escorted us to security and we were off to the Kudoo Airport, located only an hour flight from Male. Kudoo Airport was the smallest airport I’ve ever seen in my life! Basically just a runway. There was also a staff member waiting at the Kudoo Airport to bring us to the speedboat. We were served a welcome drink and 30 minutes later, we had arrived at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa.
First and foremost, yes, the Maldives is the pristine paradise you’ve always imagined. The Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa definitely lived up to my expectations. Crystal clear waters, white sands and lush greenery make this the picturesque holiday postcard we all have in our minds. The Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa has 50 total villas and 14 are Water Villas. The entire resort is located on the smallest island I’ve ever been on, only taking 20 minutes to walk all the way around it. I was able to stay at both a Pool Villa and a Water Villa but in this article, I will focus on the infamous Water Villa stay experience.
When you first set your eyes on the Water Villas, your head might explode from the sheer beauty. When you open the door, you’ll enter the very spacious villa and most likely be immediately attracted to the impeccable views.
The Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa Water Villas are equipped similarly, with a sofa, lounge chair, beautiful bed, coffee and tea station, desk area, outdoor daybed, outdoor lounge chairs and spacious bathroom. Everywhere I sat or laid down in this Water Villa was quite comfortable. Be careful when enjoying the daybed, if you slip off, you’re going for a dip. When the water was calm I could look straight down to see the fish clearly, beautiful! The villas are masterfully designed to maintain the privacy of all guests which I’m sure can be appreciated by all. It was also great to be able to go snorkeling directly from the villa!
The bathroom of this Water Villa was super impressive with its large bathtub and outstanding view. There were two sinks with high-quality toiletries. There was also a large shower stall with skylight. I quickly fell in love with my Water Villa and never wanted to leave!
All of the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa’s public facilities are situated around the property’s gorgeous main pool. From all areas of the island, guests only need to walk a maximum of 10 minutes to reach 2 restaurants, a bar, spa, gym, dive center, library, reception, 2 pools and more.
The pool compliments the Hadahaa island perfectly. The beach is just a few steps from the pool as well! Every morning we would enjoy our breakfast overlooking this beautiful pool at the Park Hyatt Hadahaa’s all-day dining restaurant. The breakfast had an impressive amount of à la carte options with a variety of cuisines as well as a sizable buffet. All the items we tried at breakfast were great, and over the five days, we had plenty to sample from.
The hotel food and beverage staff at breakfast were very observant and always met our needs. Most were all genuine and felt more like new friends than simply staff. After I shared with one that I enjoyed spicy food, they always remembered to serve me chili with all of my meals. Another staff member named Nicole even offered me Chinese chili packets from her personal stash! I’m impressed.
There are multiple food and beverage packages available and I would recommend the full board option, as there is nowhere else to eat on the island. Overall. the food was quite good. Not every dish blew my mind, but I enjoyed a majority. Whether it was a burger by the pool, kung pao chicken off of the a la carte menu, or one of their buffet dinners at their Grill, I’m sure everyone can find something to enjoy.
The Park Hyatt Hadahaa Maldives features a modestly sized gym, which I had all to myself throughout the 5 day visit.
An activity not to be missed while visiting the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is the incredible snorkeling and diving! We found it very easy to borrow equipment for the duration of our stay and enjoy the absolutely incredible conditions. While snorkeling at the Park Hyatt Hadahaa I saw more types of fish than I’ve ever seen anywhere else in the world. Seeing all of this beautiful nature reinforced the need to take care of our planet so we can continue to enjoy it for years to come.
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa did a great job at incorporating the local culture into the experience. For example, each day of the stay, during the turn-down service, the staff gifted us a local Maldivian dessert accompanied with a card explaining it. Little extras like this add to this superb luxurious experience.
Another activity that I would highly recommend while visiting the Park Hyatt Hadahaa Maldives is to visit the Vidhun Spa. I’ve had numerous spa treatments, all around the world and this massage jumped to one of the top positions on my list! It was so good, that I’ve written about it in a separate article, which you can read by clicking here.
It’s easy to see that I had nothing but positive things to say about the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. I’m raving about it because I feel so wonderful about the entire experience! I really felt a connection with the resort and staff members. This is a beautiful piece of heaven in which you don’t need to have any plans when you visit, just relax and enjoy. The major takeaway should be that the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is simply a must visit!
