If April showers are getting you down, you've come to the right place. We've teamed up with the InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort to whisk one lucky reader and a friend off to the sun for a luxurious four-night, half-board adventure on the palm-laced fringes of the Raa atoll.
Sitting pretty beside a natural lagoon, and on the edge of a Unesco world biosphere reserve, this paradise-worthy stay has got escapism nailed. Want to feel more Zen? The AVI Spa delivers, with an array of treatments and massages designed to help you relax and unwind. Itching to get out on the water? Complimentary kayaks, paddleboards and windsurfing boards are ready and waiting on the powder-soft sands, while sea-based explorations such as sunset fishing, cruising and high-octane motorised sports can be added on for a small charge. You'll even have the chance to meet the famous locals: a snorkelling experience from InterContinental Maldives Maamunagu Resort's Manta Retreat will see you swimming alongside Maamunagau island's manta rays, as you learn the ins and outs of sustainable biosphere management from the on-site Manta Trust team.
You'll be staying in a water pool villa and eating your way around the hotel's six restaurants and bars: lunch at Café Umi, perhaps, followed by dinner on the airy terrace of The Lighthouse, or at the Fish Market, where you'll want to linger over an ocean-to-table meal packed with authentic Maldivian flavours, featuring the freshest seafood from the local market - or lobster tank.
