More superyacht than outrigger in design, a new resort is changing the rules in the Maldives.
On one day alone, I took 432 photos. It's given me a new benchmark for tropical perfection.
Find a seat outside and watch the seaplanes and super-yachts shuttle back and forth on turquoise water.
Not a soul is around and the waves are sublime at this resort in the southern Maldives.
When manta rays gather to feast on plankton, it's also a treat for snorkellers who can frolic in an underwater playground alongside these gracious creatures.
Honestly, it's stupidly, madly, insanely paradisaical, this place.
Barefoot luxury, vivid sea life and a delicious sense of seclusion await at the Fairmont Maldives.
Divers and honeymooners swarm to the Maldives archipelago. There are literally thousands of postcard-perfect islands, with white sand, palm trees and crystal clear waters.This is a place to chill out and enjoy the views while sipping a pina colada from your bungalow that's doubtlessly perched over the waters of a private island. If you can summon the energy, snorkel or dive with its abundant marine life.
