A ‘No Shoes, No News’ philosophy permeates this iconic property in the Maldives archipelago – considered one of the finest water villa resorts in the world.

The epitome of barefoot chic, it comprises just forty five exclusive overwater villas with private water garden, including seven Crusoe Residences and an über-chic Private Reserve which can only be reached by boat. Villa interiors boast an open-air living room and bathroom, with sun decks both on the roof and over the lagoon. Each villa enjoys the services of a dedicated ‘Mr/Ms Friday’ who will ensure all your wishes are fulfilled. Choose from moonlit in-villa dining, sunset Champagne cruises on board a dhoni or dinners in the gourmet wine cellar.

By The Sea restaurant serves Japanese cuisine to the accompaniment of sakes and stunning ocean views. A dive school will train you to be PADI-certified within a week, sunset and dolphin cruises can be organised and there’s a plethora of watersports from Hobie Cats to surfing at the dedicated Surf Centre. In the award-winning Meera Spa with its glass-panelled floors, holistic therapies complement Ayurvedic programmes and yoga. Little ones are kept entertained by the resorts’ Mr and Ms Fridays.

When is the best time to visit Maldives?

The Maldives has a hot, tropical climate with sunshine all year round. The most popular months to visit are between November and April during the north-east monsoon when it is dry with very little wind. Whilst there may be rain during some of the summer months, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, this is becoming an increasingly popular time to travel.
