-- With the ever increasing number of billionaires buying their own Private Islands it has turned from a desire into a reality for the lucky few. However for most of us, it is just a dream and something we fall asleep to. But now the sounds of rolling waves, a stunning blue lagoon and at night, a dome of bright twinkling stars, with the satisfaction of it being only yours, is possible.
Maafushivaru Maldives (http://www.maafushivarumaldives.com/)
has its very own desert island, a well-kept secret that we are now happy to share. Just 500 metres away from Maafushivaru is the small island of Lonubo, five minutes by boat, ten minutes by pedalo and you have reached that dream. A beautiful white soft sandy beach and a huge sandy lagoon fringed by a vibrant reef and a plethora of marine life, Lonubo truly takes your breath away and now it can be yours for a day.
The introduction of the beach bungalow hidden amongst the trees in the centre of the island means that you can stay the night on Lonubo while enjoying the creature comforts the room has to offer. Each room features a king-sized bed, air conditioning/
fan, minibar, tea and coffee machine, mobile phone, satellite TV, stunning outdoor rain shower bathroom, a terrace, sun beds and sun umbrellas. In fact we have two bungalows so that a family can stay overnight but the island will be exclusive to one reservation at a time and a choice of packages to meet your needs is available. Accommodation packages range from a picnic hamper, BBQ or full dinner, all accompanied by sparkling wine and breakfast the next day. The island is exclusively yours from 4.30pm until 9.30am the next morning, enough time to relax and take in the sunset, dinner under the starlit skies, the tranquillity of having your own island. You can truly feel like a billionaire for a night. We will come the next morning at 10.30am to collect you and return to Maafushivaru where you can continue your stay.
Lonubo additionally offers a great selection of choices from early morning exclusive champagne breakfasts to picnics or private beach dinners featuring your very own chef and waiter. We also offer complimentary transfers during the day for guests who wish to swim or relax on the soft sandy beaches and take in the magnificent fiery Maldivian sunsets.
