There is no greater escape from the chaos of our everyday lives than the heavenly sanctuary of the Maldives. Expect an air of carefree living with most islands adopting a ‘no news, no shoes’ rule, inviting guests to tune out the outside world and flex their toes on the soft ground.
We can attest to the spell that the Maldives casts on its visitors; imagine leaf hidden cabanas, intimate torch-lit banquets on an empty golf course and taking over a private islet for a sleepover under the stars, this is why those seeking solitude flock here for privacy.
The ideas of seclusion, honeymoons and a tranquil paradise are synonymous with this group of islands. However, it can’t be denied that children, too, love splashing in vast expanses of glittery bath-warm water and being surrounded by first-grade sand castle mortar, both of which the Maldives is most definitely not short of.
A slow-mo stay in the world’s largest over water villa, away from the crowds in the Maldives. Enforced quiet and separation in recent months has reacquainted some of us with the value of peace, while solitude has also whet our appetite for the joys of being with others. For the perfect balance of both – enjoying seclusion with those closest to you – you’d do well to consider retreating to Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives.Read More
