Maldives vacations - A true example of paradise
An achingly beautiful archipelago of over a thousand islands, the Maldives stands out as somewhere truly spectacular. Tucked away within the deep turquoise Indian Ocean, the islands’ remote location allows it to remain an unspoilt treasure and retain its desirable castaway ambience. Maldives holidays are a truly wonderful treat for any visitor and the choice of all-inclusive resorts on their own private islands make this enchanting getaway the ultimate location for beach holidays.
Enjoy barefoot luxury and utter seclusion
The Maldives is the epitome of luxury. A stunning archipelago in the Indian Ocean, here is where your idea of an island paradise comes to life, offering true seclusion and romance amongst some of the world’s most stunning scenery.
The main island of Male is a thriving, densely populated hub of colourful buildings, lively local markets, and a true insight into the ‘real’ bustling Maldivian lifestyle. Odds are you won’t stay here though – instead, we take you to the most remote islands, nestled far away and surrounded only by pristine white beaches and crystal-clear waters. In complete contrast to Male, these islands offer quintessential, barefoot luxury. Most of these tranquil islands have just one luxurious resort with private pools and elegant accommodation, evoking the desirable feeling of being the only people for miles. Each all-inclusive Maldives resort offers style and sophistication, with many offering the coveted overwater villa experience. Just imagine watching the sun set whilst enjoying direct access to the lagoon.
Though quiet, idyllic islands paint the picture of having not much to do at all, we find the Maldives to be one of the best places in the world to scuba dive. It’s teeming with sea life including manta ray and turtles, and it's one of the rare places in the world where you can see whale sharks in their natural environment. The Maldives is also home to truly spectacular natural atolls, including the Ari Atolls and Lhaviyani Atoll full of colourful marine life and coral reefs.
The perfection of the white sands and bathwater-warm sea provide you with all the daily activities you need, and when the evening comes you’ll have fine restaurants to dine in and upscale beach bars to drink and chat with liked minded people. A Maldives honeymoon is set to be wonderfully intimate and romantic getaway, with sensationally idyllic hideaways offering the perfect escape for newlyweds to spark some romance. Why not treat yourselves to a spa treatment, too. You deserve it.
The Maldivian people have a proud Muslim heritage, although the younger generation and most staff at the hotels may not necessarily be devout or even Muslim at all. As a tourist you can expect to be treated extremely well – Maldivian standards of service and attention to detail are very high.
The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April, as you'll be outside of monsoon season and blessed with beautiful blue skies and warm sunshine.
