Where to go when you really, really need to get away.

The Beach House at Manafaru, Maldives

6 of 13

How to get there: Fly to Male, where a butler meets you for the scenic 45-minute prop-plane flight to Hanimaadhoo and a 45-minute speedboat ride to the resort.

The experience: Check into one of the 68 villas and suites, including 38 overwater pavilions (which offer glass-paneled floors), and gaze out at miles of unobstructed sea. The beach house is set on its own island, but uses just 11 percent of the land; the rest is preserved to protect nearby sea-turtle nesting areas. If you want to do more than just relax on the beach, there are plenty of options: diving, tennis, swimming pools, and a golf simulator.
