FORGET the rigours of the motley I’m A Celebrity crew. If you really want to get away from it all, then do it in luxury. A Maldivian hotel is offering exclusive castaway island experiences.
W Maldives, on Fesdu Island, is itself a beautiful bolthole with beachside lodges that stand above crystal-clear waters – but they’ve gone a step even further.
The main W Maldives resort hotel
Because the resort, part of the Marriott group, just happens to have its very own pristine private island just a speedboat ride away, where guests can have the place to themselves.
Gaathafushi is a tropical playground spread over just 76,000 sq. ft (a standard football pitch is around 64,000 sq.ft) surrounded by white sand beaches and a turquoise lagoon.
Gaathafushi, the private island
It’s the perfect spot for a castaway romantic dinner under the stars, perhaps for a marriage proposal, or just simply relaxing and stargazing from under a thatched-roof hut.
The hotel can arrange a barefoot BBQ lunch on the island, a private dinner under the stars, intimate group parties or both full and half-day castaway trips.
Turquoise waters at W Maldives
W Maldives also sits on one of the best and largest house reefs in the Maldives, which can also be explored around Gaathafushi, with the vibrant colours of the coral forest and diverse marine life.
