Experience the real castaway holiday, but with all the modern amenities you can dream of, at the Crusoe Villas at Soneva Fushi.

With a private garden where you can sit and watch the palm fronds, take a long luxurious bath under the stars or chill out on the large daybeds in these two-storey villas. You can even enjoy a dinner on your private terrace. Ipods preloaded with a selection of music and movies are provided, along with Mr/Mrs Friday (Butler) service to give your vacation a truly deluxe touch, and although it is a castaway experience, Wi-Fi is also available on request.

For you beach lovers, it isn’t a beachfront villa for nothing. Each Crusoe Villa has private and direct access to the glorious silvery beach, only a few steps away from your front door.  


Enjoy the fine cuisine of India at the brand new fine dining restaurant ‘Swarna’ at Jumeirah Vittaveli.

Swarna, translating to ‘Gold’ in Sanskrit, is open just in time for the festive season this year, Swarna offers Indian Cuisine with a selective and creative interpretation of customary Indian recipes, including an option of authentic ‘thali’ platters, the traditional Indian way.

The restaurant, comprising of three private cabanas and a special Chef’s table are located in a garden reminiscent of the olden Indian days of Maharajas and Maharanis.

There is also an outdoor adult swing located for guests to relax and enjoy the unique ambiance of the garden and restaurant.


Located in South Male Atoll, Velassaru is a lovely little speck of an island, a breathtaking 25 minute speedboat ride away from the international airport.

Everything about the resort spells out relaxation in capital letters; the aim is to leave your stress, your worries and your shoes behind. The white sands eponymous with the Maldives name is found everywhere on this island.

Dive, snorkel, play tennis, do yoga, go fishing, or for those who want, do absolutely nothing. Simply lying on one of the beach beds, watching seabirds dance on the horizon, or playing with the friendly baby basking sharks that come all the way to the beach, is amazing. 


If you want to enjoy food from around the world while teasing your palate with the local flavors simultaneously, then Holiday Inn Kandooma Maldives have everything that you need.

With the numerous restaurants and bars, ‘Dine IN! The Kitchen’ stands out particularly.  An interactive dining experience; the best international dishes from the menu are displayed by the chefs who invite you right IN their kitchen to watch and, if you want, participate in preparing your desired dish.

If your desire is to sample the local cuisine, then ‘Spirit of the Maldives’ does not disappoint. The evening kicks off with a Maldivian cooking class for kids, followed by presentation  and tasting of delicious Maldivian cuisine while speaking to locals about Maldivian food culture, and ending with ‘Bodu Beru’ a traditional Maldivian Dance.
