With glorious white sands, swaying palm trees and glittering azure waters, the Maldives are the picture-perfect holiday destination. Synonymous with exotic luxury and exceptional hospitality, these hideaway islands are the ultimate beach lovers’ paradise.
There aren’t many holiday destinations where you arrive on a private island by seaplane. However, in the magnificent Maldives this is par for the course! As soon as you set eyes on the amazing Maldivian Atolls, you’ll be transported to a world of unrivalled luxury and sheer indulgence. A pure desert island paradise awaits.
The saying “no news, no shoes” sums up a holiday in the Maldives perfectly. If you’re looking for a tropical retreat where you can lie back, unwind and simply listen to the waves lapping against the shore, then this is the place to come. Whilst the islands’ main activity is relaxation, take time out from sipping cocktails on your sun lounger to discover the spectacular coral reefs. There’s a fascinating underwater world just waiting to be explored.
With near-perfect weather all year round, friendly locals, an abundance of holiday activities, and superb first-class resorts, it’s no surprise that the Maldives remains a favourite for those looking for their very own slice of paradise. Whether you simply want to soak up the sun or take part in the all the thrilling water sports on offer, there’s an island for you in the mesmeric Maldives!
Here's a small snapshot about what the Maldives can offer you, so you can make sure you come home with amazing memories, instead of a bunch of those dreaded what ifs!
When it comes to honeymoons, there’s nowhere quite like the Maldives! Think four poster beds in your own private water villa, romantic candlelit dinners under starry skies and moonlit strolls along the beach. The Maldives is a true honeymoon paradise.
What better way to explore these extraordinary islands than on a traditional Maldivian dhoni? Hop aboard one of these authentic wooden sailing boats and cruise through the translucent waters of the Indian Ocean. Swim, snorkel or just top up your tan on the deck!
Take a trip to the vibrant capital and get a taste of the real Maldives. Visit the Grand Friday Mosque, one of the largest mosques in South East Asia, and then stop by the handicraft shops to pick up some holiday souvenirs. Before you head back to all-inclusive luxury, enjoy a refreshing coconut juice from one of the local vendors.
