Sophie Turner, best known for her role as Sansa Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones, has arrived in Maldives for an exclusive getaway to celebrate her birthday.

Turner, who turns 22 on Wednesday, is holidaying at the award-winning private island retreat of Coco Privé Private Island Maldives.

Coco Privé, part of the luxury resort portfolio of Coco Collection, was recently named the World’s Best Private Villa in the annual Boutique Hotel Awards.

At USD 45,000 a night, Coco Privé is the first private island for exclusive hire in the Maldives. Secluded and utterly discrete, the island is perfectly designed for guests to escape to an entirely private paradise.

With a master residence and five guest villas all with breathtaking views, a lavish dining room, purpose-built kitchen, cocktail bar, wine cellar, library, indoor and outdoor gym areas, sauna, and a 40-metre pool, this 1.4-hectare island is the perfect space to indulge in anything you can imagine.

A dedicated team of personal staff including private chefs, butlers and spa therapists ensure a level of service that is unparalleled. Every guest is given a completely personalised experience, and this is what makes stays on the island so exceptional.

For her performance, she has received four nominations for Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, as well as a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Supporting Young Actress in a TV Series.
