Teardrop-shaped island villa resort with a glass-floor overwater spa and six restaurants

The Lowdown

A teardrop-shaped, palm-fringed island spread across 250 acres of coral reef in the middle of the Indian Ocean provides the setting for this far-flung Maldives getaway. The resort has 105 overwater and beachfront villas topped with coconut thatch roofs, each with a knockout view across white sands and turquoise waters. The villas feature rich local influences, with traditional artworks set against contemporary furniture. The glass-floor spa allows you to watch the fish swim by while you get pampered. An outdoor infinity pool and a range of water sports (including a PADI-certified dive center) will keep you happily occupied until dinner, when the resort’s six restaurants serve a range of cuisines including Japanese, Mediterranean and gastro dishes with local flavors.

In the Area

You’ll reach the Loama Beach resort by seaplane from Malé — an experience in itself. This paradisiacal teardrop-shaped resort has all the white sand, blue water and palm trees you’ve been daydreaming about. But the resort is also keen to promote the Maldives’ heritage and has created a unique hub for the islands’ culture, the Loama Art Gallery and Loama Museum — the country’s only official museum outside Malé. For a firsthand taste of local life, take part in a Maldive-style sunset fishing trip. Diving and snorkeling in the Maldives are famously out of this world; for first-timers it’s hard to imagine a better place to learn.
