Located on its own private island surrounded by a reef on all four sides, the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo is one of the newer and more luxurious overwater bungalow resorts in the Maldives. With 50 water villas and no other rooms, each guest gets maximum attention, including a 24-hour personal butler. Service in the restaurant, spa, and dive shop are also of very high standard.
Each of the water villas here is large and has a small plunge pool on its private deck as well as a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. This is an ideal Vadoo island resort for a honeymoon or romantic getaway, but the diving and snorkeling through the house reef are also excellent so this could be a great choice for nearly anyone looking for a boutique private-island resort in the Maldives.
The Adaaran Prestige Vadoo is located just southwest of the main island of Malé in the Maldives.

To reach the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo you’ll need to fly to the main Malé International Airport in the Maldives. From there you’ll be met by hotel staff who will put you on a private speedboat for the 15-minute ride to the small island where the resort lies.
Reviews for the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo are very positive, with the small and intimate setting of the island itself being a major plus. The service, which includes your own butler, mostly gets very high marks, though some do report some delays or confusion, which seems natural at some point for any resort. There are also a few that say the butler service was the only service that was attentive, though only a few feel this way.
The house reef by the Vadoo island resort is said to be stunning, and the diving and snorkeling are excellent. The food gets very good reviews as well, though some say the atmosphere in the lounge could be improved upon. Overall this appears to be a good choice among moderately priced 5-star overwater bungalow resorts in the Maldives.
