The six Amilla – 4 Bedroom Villa Residences are among only eight private residences in an elite gated community on this coral-fringed island resort in the Maldives' Baa Atoll – a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Think absolute beachfront location, crystal lagoons, pristine white sands, private pool, acres of living space and heart-warming service. Then add the Amilla Fushi resort's outstanding facilities: restaurants, spa, personal training, kids club, diving, big game fishing and water sports, pro tennis, football and many other activities. This is “paradise – the most idyllic and relaxing place on earth”, says supermodel Kate Moss. Can it get any better! The Amilla Beach Villa Residences front impossibly white powdery sand within a gated community; all you can see from the villa is the turquoise sea unfurling to the reef edge, and the crowns of coconut trees swaying in the sea breeze. Beyond the villa, paths of fine white sand cut through groves of palms shading dense foliage and carpets of ferns, leading to the fabulous restaurants and recreational facilities that support the larger (yet equally exclusive) resort community on this tiny, less-than-one-kilometre-long, jewel of an island.
