Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beach Hotels

by Josey Miller

The Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives

Define your relationship: Honeymooners—with a few days or 40 years of marriage under their belts—retreat to the Four Seasons Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru.

Do-not-disturb factor: High. Once a coconut plantation populated by a single local, the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru is still a privacy seeker's paradise. The gated entrance to each Beach Villa is veiled behind coral walls and dense foliage, so seeing, being seen, or none of the above is entirely up to you.

Sex appeal: Three beds in a one-bedroom villa? We like the way you think, Four Seasons. The sexy superabundance of horizontal snuggling space starts with the mosquito-netted, teak four-poster bed in the guest room. An oversize daybed on a mezzanine-level loft overlooks the Indian Ocean, and further up a spiral staircase, beside your personal 12-meter lap pool, you'll find yet another daybed, plus a traditional Maldivian swing. If you've had enough lounging around, you can rinse off à deux in the extra-deep soaking tub or the indoor rain shower, which opens to an outdoor shower garden Adam and Eve would envy. Ready to venture out? There's beachside basking, of course, plus the only Olympic-size pool in the Maldives. Take it even further by being whisked off to a secluded sand spit, where a butler will serve you cocktails at a table handcrafted out of the sand, followed by a starlit barbecue for two.
