Vakarufalhi Island Resort 
Accessible by seaplane, the Vakarufalhi Island Resort occupies a tiny tropical island, only 250 metres from coast to coast, set in a shallow blue lagoon. Hidden among the palm trees and lush vegetation, the 50 thatch roofed bungalows are simply decorated with tiled floors, tropical patterned drapery and small Maldivian details, and open on to private furnished verandas with views of the lagoon. All comprise bedrooms, sitting rooms and semi open air bathrooms with gardens, and include minibars, IDD telephones, CD players and dial up Internet connections. <BR> Dominated as it is by the lagoon and surrounding ocean, the resort offers numerous opportunities for water sports. The scuba centre offers guided diving and snorkelling boat trips, equipment and accessory sales and a complete PADI instructional programme. The windsurfing and sailing centre offers instruction and rental services, including the use of catamarans and kayaks. Further aquatic activities include island hopping excursions incorporating sightseeing trips to a local village, deep sea fishing trips and sunset cruises. Sun worshippers can spend the day on the beach's white sands, with complimentary use of chaise longues and beach towels. The Ilaa Restaurant serves 'all you can eat' buffets, set menus and once weekly barbecues, while the al fresco Ilaa Bar, overlooking the lagoon, serves various beverages and a selection of snacks. The spa offers a range of massage and beauty treatments, and guests can enjoy an evening entertainment programme consisting of dance shows, movies and crab races. More conventional sports are shown on satellite TV in the lounge. Active guests can play beach volleyball, badminton, table tennis, darts and football, with the latter given an extra competitive edge in matches that pit guests against a staff team. The reception area also houses a gift shop, jewellery store, Internet cafe and a library. Mal
