Alila Villas Hadahaa in the Southern Maldives
We love the Maldives here at TheCoolist, and we also love the luxury resorts of Alila Hotels. The Alila Villas Hadahaa merges both of our travel passions into one high end destination, a series of luxury villas in the southern end of the Maldives islands. The new development is comprised of 50 private villas, some are inland, including their own pools and others stilted above the Maldivian waters.
While the focus of the Alila Villas Hadahaa is first about luxury and relaxation, the design of this resort is rooted in eco-conscious practices. The complex includes rainwater harvesting systems, waste treatment facilities and natural ventilation methods to keep cooling costs low. Guests of this stunning Maldives resort can not only rest in ultimate luxury, but can rest easy that the footprints they leave behind will be friendly to the local environment. Rates start at $945 a night. [alila hotels, scda architects via contemporist]
