An exotic island paradise in the southern Maldives, with a gorgeous villa and your choice of meals included

If you close your eyes and picture an island paradise, it will probably look a lot like the Maldives. With powdery white sands, lush green palms and bright turquoise waters, this Indian Ocean island nation is almost too dreamy for words. Hidden among a collection of its cerulean atolls is Canareef Resort Maldives, which promises a stay like no other. Even getting here is part of the adventure – you'll have to fly over the equator and take an exhilarating speedboat ride from the airport.

The property itself is just as impressive. The beautiful villas are separated by lush greenery, and each offers access to the private sandy beach, where you can lounge and gaze at the sparkling sea. Inside, you'll find natural materials and a color palette that reflects the scenery and culture around you. There are also plenty of activities on and around the premises to keep you busy – join dolphin cruises, dive with manta rays, explore shipwrecks, and take tours of nearby islands. After a bit of excitement, dine on Maldivian specialties, or enjoy a massage at the waterside spa.
