The ever-popular Maldives might not be the world's best kept travel secret, but those in search of a true off-the-radar escape should head to Coco Privé Kuda Hithi, a secluded retreat set within the lush confines of one of the Maldivian atoll's private islands. Designed by Singapore-based architect Guz Wilkinson, the sumptuous lodgings sleep a total of 12 people and comprise one master residence and five airy villas with views of the Indian Ocean and beyond. The interiors are clean and classic with neutral modern furnishings set against wood interiors, and among the facilities are a library, cocktail bar, gym and steam room, as well as a personal chef for those out-of-hours cravings.
