Man at His Best

Club Med Kani Maldives

Affordable luxury we like.

Let’s be honest: times are bad, the economy is soft, budgets have been cut. So, when booking a holiday, “value for money” is the priority these days. An all-inclusive resort like Club Med Kani is a no-brainer when you want to relax in luxury—and get bang for your buck. Many Maldivian resorts require lengthy transfers from Malé; but for Kani, you simply head across the jetty from the airport, hop into their water taxi, and 30 minutes later, voila, the fun begins.

For more perks (read: honeymooners), the Manta Exclusive Collection is the way to go. Not only do you get to stay in an overwater suite with direct access to the ocean (where we casually swam with a baby shark), you can also enjoy your breakfast there, laze around the Beach Lounge or spend the day at Club Med Finolhu Villas, and have sunset drinks at the stunning Manta overwater bar. Otherwise, a typical day at Kani consists of yoga on the beach, snorkelling, lunch at The Vehli, aqua aerobics, sailing or kayaking, a quick bite at Kaana, and then dinner and drinks at The Kandu. Or you could just lounge by the beach all day and do absolutely nothing. After all, you are in the Maldives—with its turquoise waters, sandy atolls and sky that changes to a different shade of blue every hour, making it the perfect setting for your OOTD #bless #blissful #beautiful
