Male, Republic of Maldives
Sailboats and canopied cabanas dot sugar-soft sands at Baros resort in the Maldives. Here, 75 bungalows -- many of which are overwater -- have thatched roofs and elegant wood furnishings; some have private plunge pools. Guests can snorkel in the Laccadive Sea’s calm turquoise waves right off the property’s shores or boat to one of 30 diving sites (clownfish and rainbow runners are among the common swimmers). In the evenings, pair sundowners with overwater sunsets at the open-air Lighthouse Lounge.
