3 Private Sanctuaries For Your Next Maldives Getaway
Picture the perfect tropical vacation: The pristine glisten of immaculate blue waters, snow-white beaches sifting powder-soft sand between your toes and underwater ballets with some of the world’s rarest marine life. Now, top this with epicurean epiphanies on a plate with front row views to nature’s underwater bounty, accompanied by incredible fine wines that date back to the 18th century. Better yet, combine these with sunset horizons seen from world-class luxury villas, sensory salvation by spa, indulgent personal butler service, and a perennial warmth of both sun and senses. These three luxury resorts in the Maldives will bring you the perfect paradise.
Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villa
Set on strips of spotless white sand, Anantara Kihavah exalts in the opulence of space with 79 luxury villas and residences spread across the island. With a range of settings to suit different travellers, the resort spans accommodations like the Beach Pool Villas, which offer prime access to the exquisite beaches, or the dreamy Overwater Pool Villas, which command impressive views of the horizon. With a private pool, pillow menu, outdoor rain shower and more, each of these charming residential enclaves exude comfort and calm. Choice of scenery aside, stays are also customised to the type of holiday guests seek.
White powdered sand, calm azure waves and crystal clear lagoons; day breaks as surfers paddle down to the big break, divers check off their list of underwater sights and others tuck into an indulgent breakfast spread and green elixirs for every lifestyle malady. Some explore the infinite ocean or rest above the water in stilted homes and some drive their own speedboat or are driven around by their personal chauffeur. When night comes, some dine under the stars, while others venture into exotic foliage for a cinema experience in the jungle. However they choose to spend their day, “No News, No Shoes,” is the only rule guests ever need to remember as they leave their worries behind and unwind at Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives.
Lux* South Ari Atoll
Set in the picture-perfect island of Dhidhoofinolhu, Maldives, LUX* South Ari Atoll has been offering guests the alluring promise of island escapism since its inception. Holding reign over the entirety of the island, the resort’s powdered beaches and limpid waters have long paid tribute to the LUX* brand of holidaying with a “lighter, brighter way of celebrating life”. Having recently undergone a complete refurbishment, the idyllic retreat has now expanded on its conveniences with a revamped theme of beach house chic. Going above and beyond in the realms of both design and activity, LUX* South Ari Atoll has successfully reinvented its style to fit the new age of travellers seeking a serene escapade.
