Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi Maldives, Spa Resort & Marina

You may think you've gone to heaven when you pull up to Island Hideaway at Dhonakulhi Maldives, Spa Resort & Marina. It's one of only three resorts in the Haa Alifu Atoll, and takes up only five-percent of this private island. The rest of it is virgin land - powder white sand, plus tons of coconut and banana trees.

Inside the resort, find six types of accommodation: some "floating" over infinity pools, some with private pools, some right on the beach, and others that sit on stilts over the ocean. The most deluxe are the Hideaway Water Suites. Each with their own sea-view spa room, including sauna, steam room, and an outdoor bathtub.

Here, private chefs are at your disposal for in-room or in-restaurant dining. If you happen to venture out, be sure to check out the largest whiskey collection in the Indian Ocean. After that, you may require a spa treatment at the Hideaway Spa, with its internal waterways and waterfall walls.

If only you could be marooned here forever!
