Take a flight and a seaplane to really get away from it all in Kanuhura, a paradisiacal Maldivian island resort.
In contrast to the freezing snow and that grounded feeling we’re suffering at the moment, why not hop on a plane and escape the wintery weather and transport problems and lounge in the sun in the Maldives? Blisteringly hot at this time of year, these gorgeous tropical islands, offer a paradisiacal experience that words can’t describe.
Some of the islands can be reached by boat, but to get to the island hotel resort of Kanuhura requires an adventurous seaplane journey which is well worth it. Along with the Robinson Crusoe-like natural attractions, Kanuhura boasts lots of man-made pleasures too, with bars, restaurants and first-class facilities for a variety of activities and sports, reports the Daily Mail.
Nearby are some of the world's best diving sites and the hotel resort has an aerobics studio, a gymnasium and a fabulous spa. Romantic multi-course superb dinners, served in your beach villa complete with your own butler are a Kanuhura speciality. The resort also has a great children's club to keep the kids entertained with organised games, films and magic tricks.
On an island that's small enough to walk around, you just have to relax, chill out and enjoy being waited on, while a live band provides background music. It’s not too hard to do. Seven nights' accommodation with breakfast at the Kanuhura Resort and Spa (www.kanuhura.com) costs from £1,399 per person and includes return flights with Emirates from Gatwick plus transfers.
