Flic en Flac, Mauritius
At Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa in Mauritius, 65 houses are spread out among 27 island acres. Some have views of Tamarin Bay while others overlook tropical gardens, and all have hand-selected furnishings, oversized bathtubs and rain showers, and private plunge pools. The resort’s on-point staff prides itself on tailoring personalized experiences, so while you feel completely off the grid here, your every whim is also anticipated. Count on Indian Ocean swims among the dolphins, outdoor massages by the water’s edge and a romantic, lantern-lit dinners on your own villa patio.
