Vacay the LVMH Way

So, about Cheval Blanc Randheli.  What exactly is all the fuss about?

Well, it's in the Maldives. Accessible via seaplane from Malé, this august property - only the second offering from LVMH - is bucket list affirmed.

“L’art de Recevoir” is the brand’s core philosophy, so no detail is spared. The Maison’s team of “Alchemists” ring guests pre-arrival to plot the ideal vacay.

A Majordome, or “Guardian Angel,” who caters to guests every whim, even unpacking and packing luggage, comes with each of the 45 villas, some over water, with or without gardens, and others with private beaches.

World-class dining and cocktails are easily found, but chefs also make room calls. Go reef snorkeling or diving day or night. Even sail to nearby private island Maakurandhoo to play tennis, perfect that golf swing or just kick back. Better yet, indulge at the Cheval Blanc Spa.

And, yes, children, young and old, are welcome.
