Soneva Gili, Maldives Resort
With all the buzz around ABC's "Lost," the deserted tropical island is looking more appealing everyday. Daniel Defoe started it all with the classic Robinson Crusoe and now you can get away from it all like him in the Maldives. Soneva Gili is a resort that doesn't just give you an ocean view, it puts you in the ocean, moreover, above the ocean. All of the 45 rooms stand above the Indian Ocean's crystal waters on stilts, some are connected to the main land by a pier, others, known as the Crusoe Residences are detached and require a boat to access. My personal favorite is the Private Reserve, a capacious 15,000 sq feet made up of 5 buildings. Featuring 2 master suites and a guest room, this floating palace even includes Mr. and Mrs. Friday to serve you as you relax on the many open decks or indulge in the spa room. For me, I'll be partaking in the 2 story slide into the ocean. Cowabunga!
