Naladhu, Maldives: A home away from home
ROSS & DI PHILLIPS
Book yourself into an Ocean House on Naladhu and proceed to enjoy a romantic week of doing absolutely nothing, just sitting on your expansive balcony with a good book and the surf crashing just a Frisbee throw from your deck. The rooms are more like small houses and are very functional and enjoyable to rejuvenate in. They really are the ultimate crashpad.
High rollers could charter Nirvana, a 55-foot Sunseeker Manhattan and cruise at 26 knots to other atolls in search of new waves. With two guest cabins on board, an overnight, outer-atoll surf mission becomes very tempting.
Tennis anyone? The courts are a 5-minute pontoon boat ride away and are floodlit for cooler, night-time play.
Book a Stand Up Paddle board from Tropicsurf for the whole week and park it at your private beach cabana, allowing you to paddle to and from any of the neighboring Anantara islands and restaurants so that you won’t feel guilty about all of the scrumptious food indulgences you enjoy amidst the seven restaurants.
