Barefoot breakaway

Maldives, Indian Ocean

By Caroline Tapp-McDougall

In the languid waters off the North Male Atoll, Gili Lankanfushi, is the ultimate eco-escape for those with plenty of vacation time and money to spare. Set in the middle of its own lagoon with 360 views of the Indian Ocean, Gili, is laid-back, secluded and sustainable with 45 newly designed overwater villas inspired by the island’s natural surroundings. 

The “Private Reserve” located 500 metres from the main island is the largest of its kind in the world. With 1,700 square feet overwater it offers four large bedrooms, a personal spoiling spa, an air-conditioned gym, a private infinity pool, a two-story waterslide and a private, open-air cinema. It’s the ultimate in indulgence.
