Why We Love It: Perched on a private isle with only five other villas (intended for your guests), this bi-level sanctuary upped the ante in the Maldives last year.
Wine and dine on the ground floor, then retire to a massive master upstairs, which opens onto a jacuzzi deck with nonstop ocean views. Elite amenities include daily spa treatments and a private chef.
