Head to this Maldives resort for white sand beaches and serene ocean views

Catch the perfect sunset here

There are vacations, and then there are vacations. The Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is an idyllic slice of heaven in the Indian Ocean. Think powder white sand beach, swaying palm trees, and turquoise water as far as your eyes can see. 

The 120 luxury villas offer a seamless blend of art and nature. Surrender to the life aquatic. You have the option to choose between the stunning water villas perched over the Indian Ocean and the castaway tented jungle villas. Our favourite, however, was the hideaway beach villas nestled deep inside in the mangroves. Once you’ve settled in, your agenda should now comprise gorging on scrumptious food. Choose from the four distinctive restaurants: if you are in the mood for fresh seafood accompanied by a fantastic selection of old and new world wines, then head to Azure. But if you are feeling peckish for Japanese tapas and sushi, then opt for Kata.

For classic cocktails complemented with some scrumptious bites, the Onu Onu Bar will satiate any epicurean. Still, the best idea here is one that includes a romantic sunset cruise aboard the resort’s private yacht. What’s more? A personal chef will also be on board to prepare a private feast. Under a velvet amphitheatre of the sky, lean back, and enjoy the moment. Paradise found? You bet!
