The Maldives

“Those crystal-clear blue waters are a sight, and I’d love to escape for a week…or two… or three!” —Christian Smith, via Facebook

“This destination is great for couples and families; you can be as ‘busy’ as you want with activities such as fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing on a traditional Maldivian dhoni,” says T+L Super-Agent Valerie Ann Wilson, who advises homing in on two hotels (island-hopping isn’t always easy here). Her picks: Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, where guests can indulge in an ayurvedic massage or swim with manta rays in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and One&Only Reethi Rah, whose 32 recently renovated overwater villas now have private pools.
