Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, South Malé Atoll, Maldives

Nestled among white sands and crystal blue waters, this elegant Waldorf Astoria resort serves up 11 celebrated dining venues, a world-class lifestyle spa and wellness sanctuary, and a plethora of adventure. Each Beach or Reef Villa (half on land and half over water) is set in a private enclave, complete with a pool, ample indoor and outdoor space, including a dining pavilion with cosy lounge chairs, a daybed swing, spacious bathroom with double vanity and outdoor rain shower, and sweeping ocean views. For those seeking a little more exclusivity, the Stella Maris Ocean Villas are secluded from the main island and only accessible by boat. Or for the ultimate in privacy, Ithaafushi Private Island is a 32,000 square-metre sanctuary with nine bedrooms, five pools, a private entertainment clubhouse, dedicated chefs and a personal concierge.

Dine from the treetops at signature restaurant Terra, featuring spectacular views of the ocean and horizon, and world-renowned contemporary Japanese concept restaurant, Zuma, and catch the sunset from the signature bar, Amber. Unwind in one of the tranquil spa treatment villas or explore a plethora of activities including watersports, diving and adventure for guests of every generation (that's if you can tear your younger guests away from the Waldorf Astoria Young Discovery Park with its exciting water recreation area and enriching activities catered to kids and teens for them to enjoy their very own Maldivian experience).
