Buying an island may sometimes seem unnecessarily steep and way too much hassle even for the rich. However, if you are loaded enough to spare $1.5 million for running a private island with all the people you know (and like) in a fabulous place like the Maldives then you’re in luck. one of the world’s most prestigious and stunning island resorts, Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is available for rent, a rare opportunity to experience this remarkable resort in your own way with, the ‘You Run Raffles Maldives’ package. Bring along no more than 70 guests to the Maldivian capital Male where a private charter flight from the Maldivian capital awaits you. For four-night, five-days you get to live out your island life dream which involves two gorgeous islands- one is a white-sand idyll housing 21 vast villas beaming through the lush palm trees; the second island is an overwater retreat where residences stand over gently lapping waters. Now that accommodation is sorted, let’s move on to the second important factor i.e. food (or is that first?). All guests residing here can wine and dine whenever and wherever they wish, on a complimentary basis; in addition to this are specially curated menus and custom dining experiences at The Firepit, an elemental, tiki torch-lit barbecue restaurant or the elegant Nikkei restaurant. There’s a load to do here besides soaking in the sun and gazing at the blue hues. Right from enjoying countless water sports and unlimited use of the resort’s yacht Azimut, you can go on coveted dolphin-watching cruises, fishing or diving expeditions or simply sip on refreshing cocktails and canapés waiting aboard. You have your very own Raffles Marine Butler, who will guide you through the rich marine life of Maldives the resort’s two vibrant house reefs, home to scores of fish species, from fluorescent parrotfish to handsome blacktip sharks and 22 gentle hawksbill turtles.
