If you’re seeking out a spontaneous beach getaway in the Maldives, there’s still time to take advantage of the opening special at Alila Kothaifaru Maldives. Valid for stays until July 31, the Third Night on Us deal presents exactly what is advertised: a free night awarded to guests who book two consecutive paid nights, with breakfast included. Also part of the deal? A range of complimentary Spa Alila wellness activities; daily afternoon tea and coffee; and the 24-hour services of a Personal Host, Alila’s version of a butler.

This newly minted private-island sanctuary in the Raa Atoll — a 45-minute seaplane flight from Male — was created by Singapore-based architecture firm Studiogoto. Instead of the usual rustic design with thatched roofs, Studigoto went for a clean-lined contemporary aesthetic that gives equal weight to simplicity and sustainability. Low-rise terraced pavilions and villas, as well as a treetop spa, blend perfectly into the natural landscape. The property sports the sleek look expected of the Alila brand, with a minimalist appeal and horizontal planes and flat roofs that echo the topography of the island.

The property’s 80 generously sized beach and overwater villas feature island-inspired hues and textures; warm natural materials, cultural motifs, and organic forms create a spa-like vibe. Each villa combines a succession of indoor and outdoor spaces that have been carefully designed to maximize views of the Indian Ocean while maintaining a sense of intimacy and total privacy. It’s a deeply calming environment where travelers can enjoy a restorative stay in one of the world’s most sought-after destinations.
