Mövenpick Kuredhivaru Maldives
IN THE LESSER-TOURISTED NOONU Atoll, pristine and untouched is the name of the game. Every villa in this precision Swiss getaway (prefer sunrise or sunset views from bed? The rooms are named accordingly) has its own pool, but with such magnificent nature at your front door, you are going to want to spend all your time in the sea. Mövenpick is near stellar dive sites, including Christmas Rock, a towering reef shaped like the holiday tree where white-tip reef sharks and stingrays come out to play. Game on. movenpick.com; villas from US$850 including taxes.
