Maldives – For ladies seeking both utter seclusion and total luxury, the sprawling Private Reserve at Gili Lankanfushi offers the perfect hideaway. The largest over water villa in the world, is the perfect place for friends wanting somewhere ultra-special to unwind or celebrate, away from the rest of the world.
Surrounded by the glistening Indian Ocean, 500 metres away from the main resort and accessible only by boat, the recently renovated Private Reserve is a place to enjoy total freedom and fun in unimaginable style. Built of wood and glass, with floor to ceiling windows and endless, cleverly designed indoor and outdoor living spaces, the vibe is natural chic. The huge oversea terraces are made for daytime lounging and the dazzling new fresh water infinity pool offers an alternative to bathing in the lagoon.
With one ensuite master suite, one duplex master suite with two bedrooms and a fourth ensuite bedroom. The Private Reserve comfortably sleeps eight adults with ample room for privacy and plenty of space for extra children and perhaps, a nanny. Beds can even be made up on deck for a truly magical ‘sleeping under the stars’ experience – perfect for cerebral chats long into the night beneath a spectacular sparkling and unpolluted sky.
Of course, no ladies getaway is complete without sufficient pampering, and the Private Reserve has its own spa with sauna and steam room and highly trained female therapists offering top quality treatments. Bespoke two or three day Meera Spa Journeys can be tailored for personal needs using all-natural products from luxury brands Voya and Sodashi. A menu of healing, revitalizing or detox treats, including detoxing seaweed wraps and the fabulous signature Meera massage blending techniques from around the globe, will leave guests radiant and rejuvenated.
Incredible cuisine is a key part of any stay at Gili Lankanfushi, prepared with the freshest vegetables and herbs straight from the resort’s organic garden and sustainably caught local fish and seafood. A female Japanese chef is available to design meals to individual tastes and a whole range of other delicious fare from around the world, with an exciting nod to flavours of the Indian Ocean. Served in the open top floor dining room or at cushioned round tables on the ocean’s edge, the cuisine is guaranteed to complement the stunning views. The Private Reserve has a kitchen available to guests who wish to cook for themselves or the resort’s in-house chefs are available to prepare the food onsite.
There’s a state of the art cinema, too, for film screenings of guests’ choice and two female Ms. Fridays (private butlers) are available 24/7 to see to any requests, whether it’s a private snorkeling trip to remote reefs with a female marine biologist or an indulgent picnic on a deserted island. And whilst guests rarely want to leave the Private Reserve, all the facilities of the main resort are simply a short boat ride away.
