Veligandu Island Resort, the Maldives
You've got to love a hotel that has a no news, no shoes vibe. Leave Britain firmly behind at the Veligandu Island Resort, a laid-back Indian Ocean paradise with long, quiet beaches, just a 20-minute seaplane journey from Malé's international airport.
Once you've cooled down with an icy drink, you can sign up for diving, tours to nearby islands and boat trips to see turtles and dolphins. Or you can simply take in the sea view from your private terrace and do nothing at all. What's more, the resort is perfect for a romantic break, with extras like moonlit dinners on the beach and night diving making it all the more special.
Rates: From £304 per night, based on two sharing a villa on a full-board basis.
