1. Cheval Blanc Randheli, Maldives
This resort is the most sophisticated hideaway in the Maldives. It sprawls over five islands, one of which is dedicated to its super-indulgent spa. It is only accessible by traditional dhoni boat so you’ll bob in and float out. Debut the new you at Le 1947, the resort’s signature restaurant, named after Chateau Cheval Blanc’s most prestigious vintage. Its astonishing nine-course degustation menu features super-fresh fish cooked in herbs and spices, and delicate macaroons as good as you’d get in the best dining rooms in Paris. There’s also The Diptyque, a live cooking theatre creating Japanese cuisine, and Mediterranean fare at Deelani, over the water.
Best by boat
Visiting yachts are required to send a request, then either anchor in the resort’s lagoon or just outside it and tender in.The full Spa Guide is available in the February edition of Boat International
