Think fast.

If you were cast away on a remote island with just three critical tools for your survival, what would you bring?

If you answered "private infinity pool, bamboo bar and dedicated chef..." 

Then we've got just the place for you…

No rescue required from Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, a new resort consisting of 112 pool-strapped villas on a previously untouched island in the Indian Ocean, now open next time you need an escape.

The name translates to "secret water island" in a local dialect. Yet it could just as easily translate to "secret water island with a 600-hectare lagoon where your thatched-roof villa comes with its own infinity pool and stunning views of the endless ocean." But we choose to just say it in slideshow.

You could have a perfectly perfect time without ever changing that set-up, of course. Or you could venture a few paces to take some Thai boxing lessons at the fitness center. Or melt into the olympic-sized jacuzzi in the wellness area. Before you take the edge further off at an open-air bamboo bar called Onu Onu, where you'll find a personal grill with a dedicated chef doing all the work.

But there's only one way you'd consent to ever stepping off this island before your time. And that would be when the private yacht materializes to take you on a sunset dolphin cruise.

Anything for the dolphins.
