Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi opened last month. Situated 30 minutes from Malé International Airport, the property consists of three private islands and more than 100 villas.
There are 39 beach villas, 24 reef villas and 56 overwater villas, each with its own infinity pool, dining gazebo and outdoor deck with a swinging daybed. A 32,000-square-foot private island is also available for booking, in case guests need two villas to themselves, along with five private swimming pools, an overwater spa, cinema and dedicated team of chefs. For slightly less space, Stellas Maris Ocean Villas are available, with two bedrooms.
The resort offers 11 specialty concept, on-site dining options. Dine in tree tops, a wine cellar cave or at a communal table crafted from 200-year-old timber. The poolside bar and grill is helmed by a Michelin-starred chef and one dining outlet features the Maldives’ first wood-fired oven.
The spa, which includes 10 treatment villas and a botanical garden, incorporates soothing art throughout. A dedicated spa buggy transports guests from their villas. There are more than 30 treatment options, including a 24-carat gold facial.
The property puts a high emphasis on sustainability, so minimal single-use plastics are used; key cards are made from woo;, bath amenities are in refillable containers; and water is produced on site. Additionally, the property’s resident marine biologist hosts presentations each week.

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.
