The Dreamland resort in the Baa Atoll does seem to live up to the 'Unique' in its name:

Are there any other Maldives resorts which have a freshwater lake on them?

Joali is one of them. Perhaps Vegard can help us with the others.

Hondaafushi is about to open 2 or 3 years ago.

I had reservations made for March 2017 and had to change everything at the last minute.

Funny to see that it continues to open soon :)

Great, thanks, Bruce. But you don't happen to know which ones will be 5+ stars by any chance?

I don't track that. It's hard to say anyway. Some advertise "luxury property" in marketing words, but end up being 4+ star (the "luxury" is bring in the Maldives). A few resorts planned to be 5-star and then shifted to the less crowded 4+ star market before launch (eg. Outrigger Konotta).
