We’re charting a course for the luxury brand’s new property in the Indian Ocean
Words by KATHRYN ROMEYN
Heaven on earth, indeed. Days at Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi — the deluxe hotelier’s first resort in the Indian Ocean — may comprise tooling around on a chartered yacht, swinging from a daybed beside the infinity pool (on the deck of your overwater bungalow) and discovering the surreal show beneath the surface.
You’ll also have the chance to savor Miyazaki wagyu beef and Alba white truffle, washed down with Krug bubbles, from a bamboo nest designed for two perched high in tropical treetops. Or you can always slip into spa-induced bliss with a couple’s Starlight Ocean Massage, set to lapping waves in a private candlelit garden. From $2,000/night.
Don’t Forget to Pack …
