Rekindle the flames of amour with an escape to Cheval Blanc Randheli, a Maldivian hideaway from your partner’s favourite fashion labels.
So as much of the region exits the lockdowns and restrictions of the pandemic, it might be time to have a look at your relationship. Sure, all that time working from home together, laptops at the dining table, designated Zoom times, couple’s yoga in front of the telly and all that jazz, might have been exactly what your relationship needed, chances are you’ve been grating at each other for more than two years now and it might be time for the kind of release that doesn’t end with jail or divorce papers.
When couples come to an impasse in their relationship; when communication breaks down and resentment sets in, often counsellors will suggest some time away together. A trip is a chance for couples to forget their external cares and to reconnect, enjoy shared experiences and rekindle the all-too-important sexual flames that modern life so easily retards. But it can’t be just to anywhere; it needs to be neutral ground, with plenty of discussion pieces to keep conversation flowing and activities for both him and her; somewhere with an abundance of romantic persuasion on tap.
Introducing Cheval Blanc Randheli, an indulgent little retreat by the LVMH group, owners of Louis Vuitton and Moet Hennessy. Located on the remote Noonu Atoll of the Maldives, the distinctly French, utterly modern hideaway has a little something for everyone: access is via the resort’s own leather-clad seaplane, and accommodation is in one of 45 sumptuous residential-style villas designed by celebrated architect Jean-Michel Gathy – trust us, you’ll feel right at home.
Firstly, rediscover yourself with the state-of-the-art gym, professional-grade golf simulator, comprehensive water sports centre, tennis centre, the Maldives’ only surf simulator, and dedicated cigar divan, while she’s pampered with a Guerlain treatment on a dedicated spa island.
Then come together for vintage champagne in the Le 1947 fine dining restaurant or a wine-laced degustation in the Diptyque show kitchen, just two of the resort’s seven bars and restaurants. Spend your days diving on coral gardens or have your own Blue Lagoon experience on a nearby uninhabited island, before returning to a Cinema Paradiso experience or a candle lit dinner under a canopy of stars, organized by your own ‘experience alchemist’.
Frolicking in the azure lagoon, world-class gastronomy, absolute privacy and all the romance you could beat a stick with?
It’s just what the doctor ordered.
