A lo-fi Maldives island resort with a choice of villas, plus an option for all-inclusive board and a dolphin-spotting cruise

Hidden among a smattering of cerulean atolls, Canareef Resort Maldives is a true escape from reality. Simply getting there is a departure from the ordinary, as you travel across the equator over a breathtaking ocean expanse.

Villas are spaced apart by lush greenery, each offering access to a pristine beach that leads to a glittering lagoon. Partial open-air bathrooms will keep you right in the heart of the balmy surroundings. The villas are unmistakably Maldivian, adopting a rustic island style over resort glamour; and with rave reviews and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in their pocket, you know you will be well taken care of here.

For those who won't want to do nothing (all of the time), there are plenty of activities around and on the resort to keep you busy - join dolphin cruises, dive with manta rays, explore shipwrecks and take local island tours before heading to the waterside spa to make sure any jet lag is well and truly banished.
