For an is­land hol­i­day with­out the throngs of tourists but plenty of sun, sand, surf and na­ture, visit the Four Sea­sons Pri­vate Is­land Mal­dives at Voavah, Baa Atoll. It’s a pri­vate white beach is­land and the world’s first ex­clu­sive-use hideaway in a Unesco World Bio­sphere Re­serve. Life in the five-acre is­land of­fer cast­away-style iso­la­tion with lux­ury – the is­land is home to only seven rooms (a three­bed­room villa, a two-bed­room villa and two mez­za­nine suites), a Beach House with com­mon din­ing and liv­ing spa­ces, dive school and a 62-foot (18.9m) yacht.

Guests can use the yacht to ex­plore the Bio­sphere Re­serve’s crys­tal wa­ters and co­ral reefs and in­dulge in other ex­pe­ri­ences like div­ing with whale sharks, snorkelling with manta rays, swimming with tur­tles, fish­ing or vis­it­ing lo­cal is­lands. There’s also a spa that of­fers yoga, med­i­ta­tion and pranayama classes, beauty treat­ments and a Ros­sano Fer­retti hair con­sul­tant on call.
