Head here for ocean views and private pools. 

Nestled on the Maldives' secluded Noonu Atoll, the new Movenpick Resort Kuredhivaru (www.movenpick.com) offers 72 contemporary yet natural overwater villas replete with huge glass hallway floors, private pools and spacious outdoor decks.

Meanwhile, the 30 beach pool suites and three beach spa pool residences all come with ocean views and private pools, decked out in sandy shades, heavy wood accents, and coconut wood furniture (from B15,531/night).

The main all-day buffet restaurant, ONU Marche, is made purely out of bamboo, while a spa room built over the sea offers holistic treatments and massages.

Active vacationers can head to the hotel’s water-sports center for jet skiing, diving and windsurfing.
