9.3 out of 10

Surrounded by a perfectly circular reef, the thickly vegetated Kihavahuravalhi is ringed by gorgeous white-sand beaches: you couldn’t ask for a more idyllic-looking Maldivian island. However, the resort’s biggest attraction is its 82 stunning villas, all superbly realised homages to ultimate luxury, crammed full of beautiful Asian furnishings and with highly impressive outdoor bathrooms.

All accommodation here comes with a private pool, whether on land or over water. This is one place, though, where the beach villas are even better than the more expensive water villas – they enjoy far more seclusion and have some of the best bathrooms in Maldives.

The dining options are just as opulent, including the showcase Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky dining complex, made up of four sections, including one (Sea) where you can enjoy a gourmet, wine-paired set menu in a glass box underwater while fish swim around you. Other choices include Fire – a top-notch Japanese teppanyaki restaurant (for which booking ahead is essential) – and various beach dining options.

The resort has every facility you’d expect at this price – a huge pool, sumptuous spa, water sports centre, dive school, outdoor cinema, gym, tennis courts, yoga and cookery lessons and a super kids club. Look no further for a superb luxury option with excellent service and terrific beaches.
