When you arrive at the airport, a staff member from the Sheraton Full Moon Resort Maldives will be waiting to tote your bags to the end of the runway and onto a speedboat where you’ll be whisked off to the private island resort situated near 40 spectacular dive sites. Daytimes are for the whole range of water activities—swimming, snorkeling, and banana-boating followed by a Thai massage in the Shine Spa. Dinner options include the Sheraton’s Sand Coast restaurant, which serves Maldivian tuna curry (called kandu kukulu by the locals—but you already knew that). Or phone for room service in your bungalow-over-the-water.

Prices: Rooms $575 – $2,000 per night
