Constance Moofushi, Maldives
This true barefoot island chic retreat is about 30 minutes by seaplane from the airport and located in one of the best dive locations anywhere in the world – the South Ari Atoll. If Robinson Crusoe did ‘luxury’ this would be the result; fabulous laid-back vibe, simply stylish and completely in tune with its idyllic location. The Cristal all inclusive package means you can relax and enjoy all the treats on offer – how about a scrumptious afternoon tea pool side, perhaps with a glass of something chilled and bubbly! There is a lovely relaxed air at Constance Moofushi which is totally in keeping with its spectacular surroundings.
Moofushi’s accommodation is ‘rustic-chic’. The beautiful Beach Villas are amongst some of our favourite land-based villas in the Maldives. Scattered along the beach you can lie back and watch the sun set or perhapsjust let all your cares dissolve away as you sway to the rhythm of the waves in the thoughtfully placed hammocks. These wooden villas offer a style which is contemporary, yet welcoming, with beautiful bathrooms, vast beds and high thatched ceilings. Elegant stilted Water Villas have spacious, furnished terraces with steps down to the ocean – perfect for romantic interludes or simply soaking up the utter peace of your destination. Senior Water Villas are set further away from the island ensuring total privacy and seclusion. In addition to the spacious terrace, a cool bathtub seemingly floats above the ocean – perfect for star gazing.
The dining here is laid-back and relaxed rather than formal. The talented chefs at Manta will take you on a culinary journey around the world whilst dine at Alizée with palms soaring overhead, the sand beneath your feet and the sound of the ocean in your ears. There are two delightful bars to enjoy – we particularly like the tree-covered Totem, perfect for thirst-quenching mocktails.
Diving and snorkelling are second to none in the famous waters of Ari Atoll, and in addition you can enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, pedal boats and catamarans. There is also a sensational main swimming pool – and U Spa by Constance is a beautiful overwater space where treatments use only the purest natural ingredients.
