When it comes to choosing your favourite island in the Maldives, it can be difficult to distinguish each dreamy sandbank to the next – on the surface, anyway. So, we’ve called upon the people who know their island best – the general managers and staff who live and breathe these beautiful destinations. Even though they spend every day here, it’s refreshing to know everything about the island they work on still excites them and they find new reasons to fall in love with it all over again on a daily basis. We’ve asked people from the seven islands in our Maldives Sale to share their favourite island corners, so when you get the chance to visit them for yourself, you can discover their hidden secrets…

Dhigali Maldives

“My favourite place on the island without question is Haali Bar at sunset. There is no better time of the day or location on the island where you can experience life’s simplicity in the form of a golden sunset, while you have a drink in hand and your toes in the sand.”
Glenn Daniels, General Manager

LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas

“Our favourite part of LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas is the fact there is so much to do, see and taste! With eight restaurants and five bars around our big resort island there is something for everyone, whether you want to relax in silence, take on adrenaline-filled activities or stay up late dancing all night long.”
Mohamed Mamoun, Resort Manager

Constance Halaveli

“As the sun sets, Constance Halaveli’s beach transforms itself into the most romantic place in the Maldives. Step outside your villa and immediately feel the magical breeze of our small piece of paradise. The rhythmic waves of the Indian Ocean lapping the beach suggest you are already worlds away from your everyday life.”
Tangi Le Grand, General Manager


“My recommendation would be to take a guided snorkelling tour with one of our on-island marine biologists and follow it up with a meal in Chill Bar. Chill Bar offers a heaven-sent sundeck dedicated to the art of mixology and hovers over the aquamarine waters. It’s the perfect spot for cheeky lunchtime tipples and has the best sunset views while sipping a cocktail or two.”
Bill Ignatiadis, General Manager

Gili Lankanfushi

Gili Lankanfushi

“My favourite part of Gili Lankanfushi is Villa 38 – a beautiful villa with access to its own private sandbank island and water hammock. The villa is set at the end of Jetty 3; it’s so private and quiet with the most brilliant sea views. Your Mr or Ms Friday can set up a beach barbecue or sunset drinks and you’re taken across to the island by private boat – or you could swim, as it’s only a few metres away. A totally memorable experience!”
Lisa Darchambaud, Head of UK Sales

Constance Moofushi

“After dinner, I like to go for a walk up to the end of the resort’s arrival jetty with a drink and sit down under the stars. It allows me to relax after a long day and I can put my feet in the sea with fishes swimming all around them.”
Henri Arnulphy, General Manager

Six Senses Laamu

“I love our house reef. It’s a magical underwater world right on our doorstep – if you’re staying overwater you can snorkel among coral straight from your villa!”
Marteyne van Well, General Manager
