ROOM LUST Rooms are exactly what you want from a desert island. Tatched roofs, hammocks and a powerful outdoor shower. Décor follows the ‘simple yet chic’ theme with lots of natural fbres and cheery nods to Maldivian culture. Pops of fuchsia and hip leather trunk-boxes doubling as mini-bars add a contemporary feel. All rooms are equipped with nify Mac Minis so there’s no shortage of on-screen entertainment. Not that you’ll just be watching TV…
RELAX As one of the smaller, more intimate islands in the Maldives, nothing is too far away…most importantly the spa! Te overwater Spa de Constance is on a jetty in the centre of the island and ofers guests an oasis of calm and a wide range of indulgent treatments. Don’t miss the heavenly four hands massage, which lef us so blissed-out we had to be carried to the relaxation area.ACTION! Divers will be delighted – the Ari Atoll is renowned for its subterranean splendor; desert island day trips, night fshing and dolphin spotting are also worth squeezing in.
WE LOVE Te choice – it might be all-inclusive but that doesn’t mean boring bufets for every meal. Tere’s a range of à la carte options – not to mention 100 wines and an extensive cocktail list!GET THERE 30-minute seaplane from Malé.
