Amillarah Private Islands
Imagine, having a Private island designed with a maximum of privacy in mind, giving the owners an exclusive 'getaway-from-it-all', but still only 25 minutes away by boat from the capital Male and the international airport. Welcome to Amillarah Private Islands – unique tailor-made floating residences designed by famed Dutch architect Koen Olthuis.

Worldwide, we face many challenges involving water, and with climate change and the instances of extreme weather events on the rise, water is becoming a priority topic. For hundreds of years the Dutch have lead the world in hydraulic engineering and technology, coming up with many innovative solutions for living on, or near water. One such solution, albeit at the luxury end of the market, are the Amillarah floating islands located in the Maldives and developed by Dutch Docklands, the global leader in floating developments, concepts and infrastructure.
Delivering green, low-impact luxury
The size, shape and style of the islands are customizable, as is the location. One of five lagoon developments in the Maldives, Amillarah Private Islands are self-sufficient, ‘low-impact’ developments featuring the latest state-of-the-art green technology. Dutch Docklands cooperates globally with Christie's International Real Estate and famed oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society charity. Floating developments are numerous in the Netherlands due to the nature of the delta environment and heavy population density. From floating houses to floating greenhouses and floating farms, the Dutch have developed many smart ways to deal with the threat of water and can now export this knowledge to similar areas around the world.
Sustainable Urban Delta
The inherent complexities and pressures associated with densely populated urban areas are second nature to the Dutch. Over many centuries, authorities, industries, knowledge institutes, and citizens have striven to develop integrated approaches and a holistic vision to enable sustainable development of the urban environment – the Sustainable Urban Delta.
