“White Lotus” Next Stop: The Maldives? Mike White Hints at Asia, Four Seasons Hotels Has Many Venues There


So where does White Lotus go next? Remember, in the final episode on Sunday night, Daphne announces the next vacation will be in the Maldives.

Well, the Maldives are in Asia, and that’s where show creator Mike White has indicated in interviews he’d like to head to explore Eastern religion among his characters. He’s also suggested that Tanya’s murderous husband, Greg, could turn up there, perhaps pursued by Portia, Tanya’s assistant.

Indeed, the Four Seasons hotel chain has several venues in the Maldives that are expensive, romantic, and other worldly. So it’s possible that Daphne dropped a hint that no one picked up. And maybe they’ll find Tanya’s secret twin sister there, too. (Tanya’s father was a billionaire, a secret child is not to be ruled out.)

And where or what are the Maldives? Just in case: they’re a series of island southwest of Sri Lanka and India. It’s an archipelago, which means water, water, everywhere as well as a lot of beaches. There’s lot of locations for adventures. And since the White Lotus gang rarely leaves their hotel, there won’t be too much worry of having to leave the resort.

PS The only people we never want to see again on any vacation are Daphne and Cameron. I hope White isn’t planning on bringing them back!
