Luxury, this term is as old as the world and civilisation itself. Anything and everything can be luxurious, from luxury hotel brands to luxury food brands, people are pulled towards this word automatically. This does not mean the world is becoming a mass web of materialistic needs, on the contrary, it could mean that throughout the generations, the humans are always looking for a way to improve themselves, whether it is by service or advancing a product.

Where it is used

If you to go a luxury hotel, for instance, to Anantara Hotels Resorts and Spas, you’d see that the decor and style of service are highly advanced when compared to a hotel that calls itself homely or boutique style.

What to expect

The word luxury usually means pampering and excess lavishness, thereby, costlier than the usual items or services too.

If only we could stay in one of those during the next holiday… You are not alone. Numerous travel enthusiasts have overwater villas on their bucket lists. And you should too!

Given the vast number of golden beaches and picture-perfect setting, in Maldives, villas are a preferred choice for travellers.

Resorts such as Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives even offer hammock facilities for you to spend you afternoon lazing around, basking in the awesome, year round weather that only the Maldives can boast of.

In some resorts, overwater villas are located at the furthest end of the island, resulting in you having to take quite walk to access other amenities. When making your booking, ensure that the villa you have in mind is, in fact, the same as what’s promised on the website and also that you are not completely isolated from the rest of the resort. However, if complete isolation is what you after, this may not be too relevant for you.

A key fact to remember is that although many websites promote overwater villas, only a handful of them are worth it. This is due to the fact that very few islands are naturally equipped to house overwater villas. The Maldives, with its myriad of island resorts, is one such country where you can travel to, to knock off one item from your bucket list – holidaying at a spectacular overwater villa.
