Rather than topping their huts with traditional thatched roofs, the Kudadoo Maldives Private Island Resort is taking a sustainable approach to the exotic beach getaway. It's instead covered completely by solar panels that collect enough energy to power the entire property. The escape is floating in a lagoon just off a tiny island in the Maldives. Guests stay in private over-the-water bungalows that are fitted with Tasmanian oak floors and handmade furniture and come with private butlers and personal plunge pools. Forming an arched pattern, each room is fully immersed in views of the turquoise waters. On the opposite end of the island, the two-story main building houses a restaurant, lounge, spa, and a pool that extends out into the sea.
