Lankanfushi, North Male Atoll, Kaafu Atoll
If you're dreaming of lounging your days away in a decadent overwater bungalow with someone special, the Maldives is probably one of the first locations that comes to mind. And if not, maybe it should be: It would be hard to pick a more romantic, secluded destination -- after all, just about every resort is situated on its very own private island. And plenty of the overwater villas are downright stunning, with big private decks and extras such as plunge pools and hammocks. We picked out the 12 sexiest overwater bungalows in the Maldives. First up, the Gili Lankanfushi -- a rustic-luxe, eco-friendly property that's justifiably known as one of the best in the Maldives. All 46 villas here are overwater, and they're big as houses, built of a beautiful combination of woods (teak, bamboo, and eucalyptus among them). Guests can expect beach-chic decor, king-size beds with romantic, gauzy white canopies, big sundecks leading down to the water, and private rooftops. Most are located along one of three jetties, but some are accessible only by boat.
