Maldives

From The Good Tourist

An Island Paradise

The country boasts enchanting blue lagoons and a warm, friendly people. I visited three different resorts and can attest to the luxurious lifestyle on offer. Travel is generally via private speed boat, dhoni, or in a single-engine plane, and your biggest dilemma will probably be nothing more taxing than whether to stay in a water bungalow built on stilts or a two-floor luxury beach villa with all the mod cons. Often a section of beach is allocated to your holiday home or you may be lucky enough to have a personal lap pool or outdoor Jacuzzi attached. The cocktails flow freely and all manner of foods, catering for every taste, are imported. You can have a Japanese breakfast in your gigantic four-poster bed and later enjoy a stunning sunset over margaritas and Mexican tortillas. Service is quietly courteous and friendly. In the Full Moon resort even routine needs are catered for in style, with an outdoor bathroom in a private walled garden full of tropical plants. Whilst on Bandos Island Resort and Spa you have the option of round-the-clock butler service.
