Welcome to a 5-star resort set on the private tropical island of Lankanfushi in the Malé Atoll, surrounded by the waters of the Indian Ocean. According to the bohemian description provided by the owners, “Gili Lankanfush, Maldives is an intimate coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villa accommodations. Everywhere you look, marine life abounds”. With 45 luxurious over-water villas, this is a true refuge for lovers of exotic destinations.
With some of the villas only reachable by boat, Gili Lankanfushi resort offers a high degree of privacy. Each environmentally friendly retreat includes a water garden and sun deck, for a memorable stay. All interiors were envisioned in a minimalist style, as if to emphasize the natural miracles outdoors. The resort also includes a fitness studio, diving center and a library with wireless Internet. Enjoy the photos and hope they slow down your pace for a while!
Here’s the catch: San Diego comes with what locals call a “sun tax.” It’s pricey to live in “America’s Finest City” and the surrounding county, and the region perennially ranks among the most expensive in the country. It’s often a landlord’s market on the apartment front, and home prices are well beyond what many locals can afford. Still, millions of people manage to make San Diego their place in the sun. We spent more than 30 hours conducting extensive research on San Diego’s apartments, neighborhoods and residential options. We looked at more than 80 apartment complexes in the San Diego area, categorizing them by location and comparing them with a set list of criteria. Besides basic information such as year constructed, number of units and average rent prices, we factored in community amenities such as outdoor spaces and fitness facilities.
Bookcases are a lifesaver when it comes to living small. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Our picks are not only functional, they’re attractive. Some ways to use a bookcase creatively in a small apartment include. As a room divider, floating it in an area to split up the space. To house collections of items to clear clutter and give a room a design boost. As a home office, with a shelf set at a height of 28-30 inches to serve as a writing or laptop spot, plus a section for a printer. As an entry, breakfast, media or sofa table. As an armless sofa bookend instead of a side table.
