A gong announces your arrival, and after that you're whisked off for a ritualistic foot bath in your colossal guestroom by the sea where the pampering only continues at this all-villa, private island resort in the Maldives. With infinity pools that meld into the Indian Ocean's vast mélange of myriad blue tones, 12 buff-colored beaches and a PADI National Geographic Dive Center, you'll never be bored here. Plan to read a book in the egg-shaped chairs suspended from shady palms, or muster the energy for a sunset cruise to watch spinner dolphins at play.
