Don't want to wait until December, when Gili Lankanfushi re-opens, to book a gorgeous spot in the Maldives? Consider Meeru Island. Located about 15-and-a-half miles from Gili Lankanfushi, Meeru Island has everything from a water sports center to garden views to glow parties. These overwater bungalows are not as minimalist as some of these others, so they're a great place for families and visitors of all ages, perhaps rather than a totally checked-out, tranquil couples' retreat. But make no mistake, those water villas are plenty peaceful!

From the iconic Water Villas, you can sleep and even bathe with views of crystal blue waters or lounge outside in one of the wraparound hammocks that allows you to hover right over the lagoon.
