Dreaming of the Maldives? Feel inspired by these two luxurious hotels
Cheval Blanc Randheli – Owner’s Villa
Escape to your own private island only accessible by seaplane and only forty minutes north of Mali. This private island is your definition of an escape, of your ‘nowhere-to-be-found’ and where you can be indulgent with discretion.
The Cheval Blanc Randheli was conceived by its architect Jean-Michel Gathy and invites you to “experience French Art de Recevoir”- or in other words the art of hospitality. Unlike other villas of the sort, Cheval Blanc is a completely secluded lagoon offering a rare experience for its discerning guests. If you ever considered holidaying on your own private island and haven’t done so yet, you might wish to consider Cheval Blanc Randheli Owner’s Villa.
Stretching over 8000 sqm and only accessible by private berth and jetty, Owner’s Villa is a four-bedroom luxury abode with a 25 m outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, crystal clear beaches, lush gardens, and a spa to match. And that’s not all, with a private guest villa just a few steps away and a fully mapped reception area including a bar, piano lounge and relaxation lounge, it becomes another definition of your home away from home. It isn’t called Owner’s Villa for nothing – this private island is suited for families or groups and as a guest, there’s the opportunity to own the entire island. With a dedicated staff available 24 hours (they have their separate living quarters), a culinary team and valet, guests need not worry about being taken care of.
Taj Exotica Resort & Spa
Ideally situated in the centre of one of the largest natural lagoons in the world is the Taj Exotica, reachable by speedboat in just 15 minutes from Mali International Airport. With 64 luxuriously decorated villas and suites, you are promised endless views of the Indian Ocean that will just take your breath away.
Ideal for honeymooners, Taj Exotica lets you choose its different array of villas, each perched over the lagoon and accessible by ladder. Why not opt for their premium beach villas with pool? We’re certain that you’ll want to experience this nirvana replete with master bed and bath combination, private veranda with sun beds, generous plunge pool and to top it off an outdoor shower.
It might be worth noting that Taj Exotica was also recently voted the No. 1 Hotel in Asia and No. 2 in the world by Conde Nast Traveler’s American readers. There is only one way to find out, visit Taj Exotica.
