Back to Nature

If you've ever fancied the whole Robinson Crusoe experience, or the slightly less lonely Swiss Family Robinson get away, the Maldives is way ahead of you, having built much of its tourism industry on precisely this desert island ideal, albeit in many places also providing a butler, gourmet restaurant and a fleet of staff catering to your every whim, making it somewhat more fun than a Daniel Defoe novel. These resorts tend to be very well designed, use imported woods and natural fibres, have little or no air conditioning and often open-air rooms with no windowpanes. The simplicity (even at the top end) of such places, not to mention their peacefulness and relaxed feel, is what attracts people.
