Sunsets on Hadahaa Island, Huvadhoo Atoll, Maldives


There is nothing like the unique beauty of sunsets along with Bodu Beru traditional Maldivian dancing on a private island in the Maldives. While we were at the Park Hyatt Maldives, we had the opportunity to take in a sunset entertainment ceremony, along with some pretty spectacular sunsets from across the island. As with any island life, you have to take full advantage of everything that the Maldives have to offer.

Sunsets on Hadahaa, Huvadhoo Atoll, Maldives.

“Time spent on a Maldivian Private Island is a unique experience not found in many beach resorts around the world. The immersion into nature is usually substantial and a stark contrast to my every day corporate life. “

On this visit to the Park Hyatt Maldives, we stayed in a wonderful Park Hyatt Maldives Pool Villa. We also had the opportunity to circumnavigate the Hadahaa Island, took in a back of house tour, explored and snorkled the wonderful Hadahaa house reef, and enjoyed many sunsets on Hadahaa.

For our experience during our last stay, or for some other room configurations, please see here for our time in a Park Hyatt Maldives Park Villa and Park Hyatt Maldives Over Water Villa.

Saturday’s Park Hyatt Maldives Manager Reception:

One of the new features of staying at the Park Hyatt Maldives was the managers reception on Saturday nights. At sunset, the beach bar offers a sunset cocktail, etagiere snacks and some with live entertainment. I met the manager here. Although truthfully, I didn’t have much conversation with him. He pretty much greeted me, got me a drink and went onto the next arriving group. All in all though, the manager’s reception was a nice feature for those that are on a longer stay.

Bodu Beru Maldivian Dancing:

We also had a bodu beru dancing demonstration that was masked as the entertainment for the sunset session. The bodu beer dancing is the traditional Maldivian dancing consisting of increasing drum beats. While it

Sunsets on Hadahaa:

Closing out our stay are the beautiful sunsets. Hadahaa has some amazing ones and they look beautiful almost no matter where you are on the island. The island is the perfect place to grab some bubbles and spend some time with a loved one with views like this at your doorstep almost every evening.

My thoughts on sunsets on beautiful Hadahaa Island:

All in all, the Park Hyatt Maldives remains my favorite beach destination. It’s the ultimate beach holiday resort for an adult couple. It has beautiful beaches, heaps of privacy, a setting to die for and the remoteness that makes the place unique. The stay was just as good the second time around. Five days was way to short!!

If you’ve spent some time on Hadahaa enjoying the sunsets, did you find them as spectacular as I did?
