Sneak Peek: Viceroy Maldives

Surrounded by the Indian Ocean on the private island of Vagaru, the Viceroy Maldives opened April 2. Located in the uncharted northern edge of the Maldives archipelago, the 61-bungalow resort ($1,600–$2,400) is less than an hour’s flight from Malé International Airport. Ranging from 1,108-square-foot one-bedrooms to the 4,370-square-foot three-bedroom Royal Villa, each bungalow features ocean views, a private pool, and indoor and outdoor showers. The 17-acre resort also features a natural lagoon, five dining venues inspired by the spice trade routes of Asia and Africa, an Ayurvedic Indian spa, and a PADI-licensed dive center. Activities include private lessons for beginning water-skiers and windsurfers, yoga, catamaran sailing, deep-sea fishing, and numerous other water sports.
