One of the largest islands in the archipelago of Rasdhoo Atoll, Kuramathi Island Resort was originally three resorts. Now they're all under one umbrella you can enjoy the pleasures of a remote island setting while having a variety of restaurants on offer. Choose from barbecues on the beach, incredible Thai dishes or fresh fish and seafood, or keep it simple with pizza and ice cream.

There's also a wide variety of accommodation, with nine styles of villas, dotted around the lush gardens, standing in water or set facing the beach.

A spa, two swimming pools and a host of activities (on and off water) means that if you get itchy feet there's plenty to keep you busy.

Wow factor: Treat yourself to a couples' massage on the edge of the jetty over the water.

Flight time: From 10 hours to Male.
