9 out of 10

Meaning 'vastness of space' in Dhivehi, Jumeirah Vittaveli is actually half created from reclaimed land, though you'd never guess that from looking at it. It's a beautiful place, with sumptuous white beaches and plentiful thick vegetation. However, its real draw is its rooms, which are nothing short of astonishingly palatial and gorgeously decorated, bringing the best of Dubai to Maldives.

Even the starting category, the Beach Villa, is a vast 184 sq m, and all rooms have their own private swimming pools as standard, up to and including the 800-sq-m Presidential Suite, which is astoundingly luxurious. The most notable rooms are the Ocean Suites, six of which stand independent of each other over the reef, and can only be reached by dhoni. These are popular with those seeking total privacy, though arguably the Beach Villas on the main island are more charming, surrounded as they are by a swimming pool moat on three sides. As well as being spacious, rooms are tall, with wonderful beamed ceilings, marble floors and distinctive thatched roofs, while decor combines timeless tradition with modern touches such as flat-screen TVs, media centres and rain showers.

The island enjoys gorgeous stretches of beach, while the public areas are also impressive, all crafted in timber and sublimely decorated. Facilities on the island include the magnificent over-water Talise Spa, a gym, a water-sports centre and a very smart diving centre. The resort has two L-shaped communal pools, one for families, the other restricted to adults, so there’s peace and quiet even though children are more than welcome on the island, as the excellent kids club shows. There are three restaurants to choose from: Swarna for Indian cuisine; Mediterranean at Fenesse; and steak and seafood at the candlelit MU Beach Bar & Grill. Altogether this is one of the smartest and luxurious resorts in the country, and is a perfect choice for a high-end romantic break.
