VillingiliResort & Spa

5 of 12

I’ve been to the Maldives several times in the past decade and seen the resort boom in this remote archipelago. Though I’m not a fan of all the overdevelopment, Addu Atoll, one of the islands south of the equator, has remained relatively pristine. On a sandy outcropping near a coral reef, Shangri-La has built Villingili Resort & Spa (doubles from $1,200), with 16 tree-house villas and 60 timber bungalows that hover over the aquamarine water. And better yet, British Airways launched nonstop service from London Gatwick to Male, which cuts the travel time in half. —Shane Mitchell
