Because it just isn’t getting warm enough fast enough for some of us, Destination Design goes tropical this month to the Maldive Islands. The Ayada Maldives is a resort and spa, complete with a dive and water sports center. (There’s even a Kids Club for those of you saddled with tots.) The island’s 112 villas are located in the central region of a pristine reef, surrounded by a shallow lagoon. In a word, breathtaking.

Are you packed yet? What: Ayada Maldives Where: Maguhdhuvaa Island -Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll – Republic of Maldives How much: From $1460 Highlights: In addition to lounging and diving in paradise, you can dine at the resorts’ six restaurants and be pampered at the full service spa. Design draw: It’s like a movie set—dreamy thatched huts, each with its own private pool, on a lagoon. All the furniture and colors are soothing, sleek and modern. Book it: Call + 960 7303010 or email
