WMal­dives of­fers an Ex­treme Is­land Takeover Pack­age, where a seven-fig­ure sum ac­quires the exclusive use of an en­tire lux­ury is­land, com­plete with ev­ery in­dul­gence sup­ported by im­pec­ca­bly trained staff. For the du­ra­tion, the is­land be­comes your own pri­vate play­ground, from the white beaches and scenic la­goons to its 78 bun­ga­lows.

The restyled Wonderful Beach Oa­sis bun­ga­lows have been en­livened by a red pal­ette, while the Fab­u­lous Over­wa­ter Oa­sis vil­las have blue and white hues that re­flect the lo­cal sea life. Be­spoke items from top de­sign­ers fur­ther amp up the lux­ury.

The pack­age in­cludes the six gourmet eater­ies and bars with un­lim­ited food and house bev­er­ages, the spa, wa­ter sports – and the ul­ti­mate cool nightspot, the un­der­ground 15Below.

Fish, the re­vamped over­wa­ter restau­rant, fea­tures ocean-to-table cui­sine pre­pared with South- east Asian flair. Most im­por­tantly, the ho­tel works with lo­cal fish­er­men to ensure they fol­low W Mal­dives’ code of ethics “to make ev­ery­thing we do sus­tain­able and use the fresh­est and most or­ganic in­gre­di­ents pos­si­ble”. Prices start at US$4 mil­lion (S$5.6 mil­lion) for four nights. www.wmal­dives.com ≠

Each of the 78 beach and over­wa­ter pri­vate bun­ga­lows has its own sun­deck and plunge pool. Inset: en­joy the fresh­est catch at Fish.
