An adults-only, over-the-water retreat in the Maldives

In its new Ras Fushi Resort & Spa, Centara has perfected the genre of romantic seaside holiday: stand-alone villas (both over the water and not), outdoor bathtubs, a sunset bar, those in-vogue mesh beds and (sorry, kids) a strictly adults-only policy. All this on a golden island surrounded by the iconic turquoise waters of the Maldives.

Ocean Front Beach Villas start at $779/night while the overwater villas go for $1,016/night. The hotel also organizes snorkeling and diving trips to the area’s favorites of the Giraavaru Cave, Kuda Haaa and Shark Point.

To max-out on holiday pampering, get the Gold All-Inclusive package (an additional $195/night/person) which includes three buffet meals per day, an 11-to-11 open bar, three dives per week and spa treatments.
