Epitomising the luxury the Maldives is famed for, the 128 villas are not only some of the largest in the world, but each one is set on its own secluded patch of sandy shore or on stilts over the water. Beach Villas have one or two bedrooms and are a good choice for families, while Water Villas exude romance and so are perfect for couples. All feature stylish natural furnishings, flat screen satellite TV, surround sound, iPod docking station, a DVD/CD player and personal 24-hour Villa Concierge to see to your every need. As well as a large soaking bath and cascading shower, each villa also has its own verandah or over-water deck. The new and already very popular Water Villas with Pool are a great choice for their generous outdoor living space, including a private infinity pool hovering over the lagoon. We also like the Grand Water Villas with Pool, featuring a separate living room, outdoor dining space and 23 sq metre private pool, and the exceptional three bedroom Grand Sunset Residence with fully equipped kitchen and personal chef.
