Rooms & Suites: 45
Sprawled out on a remote island in Maldives' Noonu Atoll, Cheval Blanc Randheli (part of LVMH's luxe hotel portfolio) will be nothing short of extravagant when it opens in summer 2013.
The 45 airy loft-style villas–some set on the white-sand beach, others on stilts over turquoise waters–feature private infinity pools, impeccably appointed interiors and jaw-dropping views of the surrounding lagoon. Guests will be able to unwind in the Cheval Blanc Spa and take advantage of the island locale with a fleet of traditional dhoni boats (Maldivian fishing boats) specially crafted for Cheval Blanc. The idyllic retreat will also include four restaurants, ranging from fine dining to a fish market, as well as cigar and wine cellars.
