KANUHURA LUX­URY IS­LAND RE­SORT, Mal­dives

World Travel Magazine - - Where To Stay Exclusive Islands -

Need to sat­isfy your in­ner gypsy and jet-set­ter? This re­sort cel­e­brates your free­dom in the lap of lux­ury. Your bliss be­gins when the sea­plane touches down on crys­tal wa­ters. This is where bare­foot lux­ury is de­fined by walk­ing bare­foot all day, com­pletely free. Break out the linen and gor­geous sun dresses. Re­cently ren­o­vated, a mix of the eclec­tic mod­ern and in­ter­na­tional, with a cre­ative lux­u­ri­ous laid-back style has no need to im­press or try too hard. Let ev­ery­thing go in the here and now. It’s easy in spa­cious vil­las with pri­vate ter­races and pools over­look­ing pris­tine white sand beaches. Pri­vate is­land, Je­hunuhura is only a five minute sail from the re­sort is­land where you can en­joy the Drift restau­rant and an is­land all to your­self. If you’re in sea­son, you may even spot a baby sand­piper hatch­ing. Over­wa­ter vil­las up the dra­matic with see-through floors in the bath­room mak­ing your bath feel like you’re float­ing over the im­pos­si­bly blue ocean wa­ter. Their over­wa­ter ham­mocks in the bath­room and on the ter­race up the gypsy vibe, with gor­geous white­washed in­te­ri­ors fea­tur­ing out­stand­ing orig­i­nal art pieces that add a dash of beach ele­gance. Six res­tau­rants on the is­land give the gypset­ter tons of choices from Fogo––quite pos­si­bly the only Brazil­ian restau­rant in the Mal­dives––to a ro­man­tic, most un­usual din­ning ex­pe­ri­ence in a boat at Dhoni. Be­cause you haven’t lived un­til you’ve dined on a boat with cham­pagne and throw pil­lows. Other venues of­fer fu­sion cui­sine, pool­side din­ning and an herb gar­den, fea­tur­ing or­ganic food, per­fect for your in­ner hip­pie. Stun­ning sun­set cruises will help you dis­cover a few more colours then you found in the crayon box. Ad­ven­tur­ers will love night fishing, armed with only a line and a hook, bait in hand. Af­ter a few clumsy tries, you’ll catch trop­i­cal fish in no time. The best part is eat­ing your catch, pre­pared by the chef––din­ner doesn’t come fresher, or more or­ganic. kanuhura.com
