The enduring appeal of the Maldives shows no sign of abating, and the last few years have seen some sensational openings and refurbishments. Read on to hear what’s new in the world of paradise at three of our favourite resorts.
Known as ‘the place beyond time’, The Nautilus offers complete flexibility and freedom, giving the island a bohemian feel, where you can dance to your own beat. Add secluded ocean hideaways, whiter-than-white sands and a ‘house butler’, and you’ll ﬁnd The Nautilus to be the most perfect and private paradise.
Open since the end of 2018, we’ve seen how Joali has firmly settled into its gorgeous Maldivian seascapes by focusing on high-quality comfort, smart interiors and top-notch service. Art lovers will enjoy the art trail around the island’s verdant interior, and if inspired, you can create your own tropical Gauguin in the studio.
COMO COCOA ISLAND
For an authentic dose of the Maldives, you can’t go wrong with Como Cocoa Island. And with this year’s massive refurbishment, the resort is understated elegance personiﬁed. Relax in your dhoni-shaped over-water villa, soothe body and mind in the soul-enhancing Como Shambhala spa or simply gaze at the paradisiacal panorama.
