After a 30-minute yacht ride from the airport, you'll arrive at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi. The 122-villa resort occupies three private islands surrounded by the impossibly blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Accommodations include reef, beach, and the area's signature overwater options and come in one and two bedroom configurations. Each one features at least 2,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space with a dining pavilion, hammocks, outdoor showers, and infinity pools protected by lush, tropical vegetation. For an ultra-exclusive stay, opt for a Waldorf Residence. Accessed only by boat, the estate sits on its own private island and offers two villas that come with their own personal concierge, chef, spa, an entertainment clubhouse, and not one, but five pools. Also on the property are 11 restaurants. With global delicacies ranging from pecking duck served over the water at Li Long to dinner in the treetops at Terra, there's sure to be something to please every palate.
