Exclusive Vacation Destination
Where to hobnob with the super wealthy? Set in the impossibly turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean, the islands of the Maldives have become a luxury vacation destination with few equals. But in between snorkeling the reefs, topping up your tan and generally taking the word “relaxation” to new heights, there’s the key question of what to eat — and where. Happily the country punches well above its weight when it comes to culinary choices, thanks to exclusive resorts where celebrity chefs craft some of the world’s finest and most expensive ingredients — as well as local produce — into show-stopping plates. Bear in mind, the Maldives is made up of 26 atolls filled with over 1,000 islands occupied by dozens of resorts — all spread out over 90,000 square kilometers — so hopping between properties for meals isn’t really an option. Not to worry, the food is as much of a draw as the white sand and stunning sunsets.
