Intercontinental Maldives

5* out of 5 stars

When it comes to luxury Maldivian beach resorts, this one’s a timeless classic. At Intercontinental Maldives, time almost stands still as guests reconnect with nature and settle into elevated R&R, surrounded by otherworldly scenery. Become cast away amid the white-sand shores of the Raa Atoll near the Unesco Biosphere Reserve, where the hotel’s house reef and lagoon unveil a kaleidoscope of marine life including a unique manta ray sanctuary. The resort spa makes great use of this island setting too, with an overwater position for the utmost tranquillity.
