Amilla Fushi, a new private-island resort in the western Maldives, contains everything a modern castaway might need: limestone-and-timber houses, outdoor rain showers, a spa with its own tea lounge, an 8,000-bottle wine cellar, and rooms with personal sundecks where you can be mesmerized for hours on end, watching the water ripple in a spectrum of clear glass to deep indigo. You might go to the restaurant for a lunch of delicious kingfish sashimi, but better yet, why not have your butler deliver it straight to your door? Because, truthfully, it’s difficult to leave a spot like this.
