Ideal for a sustainable escape, Crown and Champa Resorts has opened its latest property, Kudadoo Maldives, a lavish private island that’s entirely powered by the sun.
Found in Lhayivani Atoll, the newly opened resort features 15 villas, each with almost a thousand solar panels which generate 300kW of electricity – enough to power the three-hectare island retreat. With sustainable properties at the top of modern travelers’ check-list, guests are already flocking to its sun loungers – with famous faces including the likes of Chiara Ferragni.
The private island comes with all the amenities needed for an opulent escape – including personal butlers. Guests can stay at one-or two-bedroom residences, which are nestled in the sand lagoon. Impressive details include Tasmanian Oak floors, an eco-cooling system, private outdoor decks and private infinity plunge pools.
It’s been designed by Yuji Yamazaki Architecture, with its unique structure recognised as one of Architectural Digest’s Hottest Designed Hotels in 2019. Constructed using eco-conscious materials – including wood from forests in Indonesia, New Zealand, Canada, as well as locally-sourced timber from the Maldives, this eco-friendly property has sustainability at its centre.
What’s more, Kudadoo Maldives also avoids the use of single-use plastics, making sure that all of its materials are biodegradable. Furthermore, natural lighting and airflow is kept in mind throughout the resort’s design.
Interestingly, the resort offers an ‘unscripted’ dining approach when it comes to mealtimes. There are no menus here, only suggestions. The executive chef, a fine dining maven, creates bespoke gastronomic treats instead with a personalised signature twist.
