It has now upped the ante with the Premiere Water Suite, a 3,282-square-feet hideaway perched upon stilts above the lagoon. A feeling of lightness and liquidity pervades the rooms: two bedrooms with beds that appear to float above the floor, sunken Jacuzzi’s in each of the two bathrooms, and a living area with floor-to-ceiling windows create an illusion of infinite space. A spacious wooden deck, graced with two swimming pools, faces west to showcase the theatrical Maldivian sunsets.
The two equally new and spectacular Beach Suites boast nearly 7000-square-feet of tropical opulence. One suite faces west, taking in decadent dusk views; the eastward-gazing sibling is steps from the island’s coral reef. Each suite has two separate bedrooms with open-air bathrooms. The garden, equipped with two plunge pools, leads to unending white sandy beaches, the mecca for all Maldivian pilgrims.
