Beach bungalow

An idyllic thatched bungalow set on the powder-soft sands of a pristine island, just steps from the water

Not many places on Earth outshine the breathtaking Maldives. This otherworldly archipelago comprises 1,200 coral islands grouped into 26 atolls and strewn across the Indian Ocean. Just a 50-minute speedboat ride from the capital of Malé, you'll find Makunudu Island. It should come as no surprise that this island resort ticks all the boxes for a tropical paradise, thanks to its gleaming white-sand beaches, warm turquoise waters and picturesque swaying palms.

There's more to enjoy here than just the scenery, though. You'll be staying in a Maldivian-style beachfront bungalow, with ocean views, traditionally inspired décor and a private outdoor shower. The resort's restaurant serves local delicacies and international cuisines, and a laid-back bar is on hand with ice-cold beers and exotic cocktails. Fill your days with scuba courses at the nearby dive center, or indulge in a few treatments at the spa, featuring Maldivian, Asian and European treatments.

Good to know

Please note that a green tax of $6 per person, per night is payable directly to the resort.
