An instant favorite among honeymooners and celebrity couples, One&Only's latest luxury lodging sprinkles 130 thatch-roofed villas (all with terrazzo bathtubs for two) along the 12 beaches of this 109-acre island in the North Male Atoll. The island's paradisiacal surroundings are the resort's focal point. Daybeds outside the Moroccan restaurant, Fanditha, are the best place to take your meals. The nonstop activitiesfrom diving excursions to tennis tournamentsmake the resort a sort of ultradeluxe Club Med. And while some may find the friendly banter of the staff intrusive, most will appreciate their simple acts of kindness, like a beach cleaner reaching down to dig up stunning colored cowries for a seashell-seeking guest.
