Condé Nast Traveler has highlighted three properties of the Maldives in its annual report of ‘9 Beautiful Overwater Bungalows Around the World’.
The report gives prominence upon the marvel of the overwater bungalows of Six Senses Laamu, Niyama Private Islands Maldives and Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas.
Six Senses Laamu, the Maldives is well known for its works towards marine conservation and sustainable development in Laamu Atoll. The property has been noted for its triple-tiered overwater villas constructed of local materials, which brings money to nearby island communities. Here you can be sure to see a unique panoramic view of the Maldivian nature, the blue-green seascape and treat yourself to one of the many treatments available at the Six Senses Spa overlooking the ocean.
The second property mentioned in the report, Niyama Private Islands Maldives is both adults and family friendly. This luxury resort is set across a pair of islands in Dhaalu Atoll accessible by seaplane from Velana International Airport. Underlined for its overwater bungalows, each with a partial open-air shower, private pool, and deck with stairs leading directly into the lagoon below, the property offers an Explorers Kids Club, world-class surfing, kneeboarding and other similar leisure activities.
Last but not least, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is the third property mentioned in the report. This property is what overwater dreams are made of. Located in Baa Atoll which is officially designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for its vibrant coral reefs and prolific marine life, this luxury resort offers overwater bungalows with glass-bottomed bathtubs, overwater hammocks and a private pool. Guests can enjoy learning about stars at the astronomy-themed rooftop bar which has the largest telescope across the Indian Ocean.
All three properties have been selected as the Condé Nast Traveler’s top resorts in the Indian Ocean: Readers’ Choice Awards 2018.
