Velaa Private Island is opening in the northerly Noonu Atoll on this December. Glassy suites make the most of the ocean views and are designed so you needn't leave - there's plenty of outdoor space to lounge around and eat in. Should you wish to dine 'out', the restaurant serves Maldivian seafood and has a Champagne bar.
Organic products are used in the spa which specialises in treatments where toes are wiggled back into place and muscles are thumbed, stretched and squeezed; you won't fall asleep but you will leave two inches taller. Meditation - on the beach, by the pool, on the 'raised meditation platform' - is actively encouraged.
