Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi 

This resort is a magnet for the rich and famous. Recently, it opened its own Private Island. Here, every moment of your holiday is personalised to ensure you enjoy every minute. Arrive in just 15 minutes by seaplane or enjoy a 40-minute yacht. Marvel as you discover the 11 restaurants, award-winning spa and personal butler service.  

Six Senses Laamu

If secluded sandbanks and stargazing are your thing, book an ocean water villa with its own pool at Six Senses. This is one of the most remote and private resorts. So if you want to get away from the world, you can create your own relaxing sanctuary with your travel companion here. With convenient upper deck dining and an over-water plunge pool, you’ll never want to leave. 

One & Only 

Boasting pure luxury and privacy, it doesn’t get more lavish than the One & Only Reethi Rah. Are you looking forward to exploring the ocean? This resort provides diving lessons so you can get up close and personal with the stunning marine life. In addition, you can choose from eight restaurants dotted across the island, as well as plenty of beach bars that are the perfect place to soak up a Maldivian sunset. 

Gili Lankanfushi

If you love the idea of visiting the spa for a massage with your companion, you are in for a treat at Gili Lankanfushi. Remarkably, the Meera spa has a glass floor so you can watch the manta rays and bull sharks swim beneath you as you are pampered from top to toe. This resort is happy to provide you with tailor-made experiences. You can dine under the stars, enjoy your own private cinema experience on the beach or go on a romantic sunset cruise and enjoy dolphin spotting at dusk. 

Soneva Jani 

This resort has grabbed attention for all the right reasons thanks to its Instagram-worthy water villas that have their own water slides attached. The water villas at Soneva Jani really are a different class with their own fresh-water swimming pools, retractable roof for stargazing and signature outdoor bathroom with rain-shower and sunken bath. With direct access into the ocean and dining on your own private deck, you can experience everything the Maldives has to offer from the privacy of your own villa.
