Anantara Dighu Resort & Spa

Just 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé, this little gem of an island hosts just 50 rooms. The resort is very committed to protection of the environment--the soaps are biodegradable, and the heating system is solar. 4.6 stars from Google+ reviewers, 5/5 at TripAdvisor, and 9.1/10 at Booking.com.

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

It's got an underwater restaurant...I kid you not...it's called Ithaa, and you can dine while sharks swim next to you and over your head. Pretty hard to one-up that for an exotic dining experience! Conrad is the upscale arm of the Hilton brand, and you can see the luxury and sophistication in their overwater villas and beach villas.

Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa

This Canadian-based resort group has spectacular properties around the world, and their Maldives resort is no exception. Their spa--well, it has its own ISLAND. And, for divers, their three-deck, liveaboard luxury catamaran The Four Seasons Explorer gives you scuba diving options further away than the smaller day-trip dive boats can offer.
