Noonu Atoll, Maldives – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
December saw the launch of Bubble Lounge, one of the first champagne bars in the Maldives, at Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa. The over-water property is the ideal spot to indulge in breathtaking vistas with equally extraordinary drops. To that end, the lounge offers an impressive array of French champagnes; a collection of over 50 bottles includes Dom Pérignon and Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier. The wine list showcases new and old world sparkling varieties. A tapas menu celebrates the island’s exceptional seafood, boasting teriyaki-glazed lobster accompanied by citrus coconut jelly, basil froth and ikura and fresh oyster with dashi caviar, marinated scallion and mint granite. Be sure to indulge in the peppered white chocolate and Thai basil coated strawberries, the ultimate treat to couple with a glass of bubbly and unending Indian Ocean views.
