Far from Malé's urban frenzy, take a break in a bubble of serenity at the far end of the Shaviyani atoll of the Maldives archipelago. A one-hour ride on a seaplane will take you to the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi and its 120 high-end private villas on stilts. Wooden terraces and wicker roofs mix with an infinity pool that directly gives onto the Indian Ocean, and a bathroom that opens on the outside.
Between white sandy beaches and coral reefs, the location's natural beauty will dazzle you. Amid the charming houses, a one-of-a-kind underwater art gallery appears out of the blue. Artist Jason deCaires' sculptures can therefore be discovered by foot when the tide is low, or with the help of a diving suit when his installation is covered by the sea. When night falls, let your spirit wander from your terrace into the sky, free from visual pollution, as it reveals the shiny Milky Way.
