Maafushivaru: the unpronounceable Maldivian island hideaway

Maafushivaru. That's right, Maafushivaru. Assuming you're able to tell your seaplane pilot where to take you, then what you'll find is a private Maldivian island paradise with 50 villas, a spa, and restaurant -- and soon the only thing you'll be saying is maaa... who gives a sh*t, this place is awesome.

Maafushivaru Water

Scattered across stilts over the crystal blue lagoon, the villas have direct access to the water from your private wooden deck.

Maafushivaru Food

If you spring for the all-inclusive stay, you can take in all your meals at the Mediterranean-style main resto.

Maafushivaru Pool

The beachfront infinity pool is sooo conveniently next to the bar, and there's complimentary Wi-Fi in most public areas, and did we mention the bar next to the damn infinity pool?

Maafushivaru Deck

Oh, hello amazing sunrise and private deck.

Maafushivaru Room

All of the villas feature air-con, king size beds, flat screen TVs, iPod docks, espresso machines, and the always-important mini-bar.

Maafushivaru Spa

Outside of this gorgeous spa, the facilities include a lounge, wine cellar, dive school, and library, where you can try and look up Maafushivaru, or just go outside and experience it.
