Laguna Maldive

LAGUNA This is a good all-rounder: not too large to sacrifice that desert-island ambience, not so “honeymoonish” that parents will be constantly wishing their offspring came with a mute button, and not so quiet that active guests risk boredom. Many of the 115 rooms are in two-storey blocks, set back from the beach and shaded by lush vegetation. It has wonderful sweeps of beach and, although every island in the Maldives has a frill of magnificent turquoise water, the shallowness of the lagoon here means that the sea retains that stunning Tiffany colour as far as the eye can see. The pros: food is a cut above offerings in many other resorts. The cons: dated decor. Best for: groups of thirty- or fortysomethings. The package: Kuoni (01306 747008, www.kuoni.co.uk) has seven nights, B&B, from £747pp, including charter flights and transfers. more
