Surrounded by nothing but a sea of turquoise, the Soneva Jani Resort is a luxury playground in the Maldives. Their over-the-top villas offer guest whimsical ways to take advantage of the pristine scenery with features including catamaran nets, glass-bottom lounges, and two-story waterslides plunging right into the lagoon. The playful touches don't end on the exterior. Inside, retractable roofs allow guests to drift off to sleep below a blanket of stars. If you can manage to pull yourself away from your private bungalow, the resort will make it worth your while with unique experiences ranging from dolphin safaris to a floating cinema.
