Following a six-month renovation, Naladhu Private Island will reopen this November with a paler colour palette and sleeker furniture creating a “modern colonial Southeast Asian style”. Redesigned by New York-based designer Yuji Yamazak, the new look is monochrome with dark woods and a kiss of teal. Home to just 20 houses, the top suite, the two-bed Pool Residence, now has its own private 20-metre beach. Located on the edge of a lagoon in the South Malé Atoll, Naladhu Private Island is 30 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport in Malé. For more information, visit
