An archipelago of glistening coral atolls in the Indian Ocean, where crystal blue waters blend flawlessly into the sky - a luxury Maldives holiday will captivate you with its enthralling charm.
Begin your lavish escape by diving deep amongst coral reefs courted by rays and parrotfish. Watch a black tip reef shark glide by, or a whale shark in all its spotted glory. Private diving safaris and colourful snorkelling trips are a popular way to pass the blissful days in the Maldives. Cruise the atolls in a traditional wooden dhoni before escaping to a sandbank in the middle of the ocean for a romantic private dinner. Spend a day visiting a local village and sampling local fare or indulge yourself with exquisite cuisine made by some of the world’s leading chefs. Discover life below the surface at an underwater restaurant or spa followed by stargazing on the beach. Unhurried and unspoilt, these impossibly beautiful islands promise a stay of utter tranquillity and luxury. Whilst most are small enough to walk around, to explore some you may need to borrow a bicycle, but why stray from your stilted water villa where you can relax on a daybed with the waters lapping below and slip down the private steps into the warm sea. Expansive beach villas, many served by private butlers, come complete with their own exclusive stretch of sand. Whether you are opting for a blissfully romantic Maldives honeymoon or quality time with your family, these idyllic islands are the epitome of paradise. Add a touch of Arabia to your journey and enjoy a stopover in Dubai, where you will be mesmerised by the soaring skyscrapers alongside vast desert spaces, before arriving at your Maldivian hideaway. Rarely reaching more than a few metres above sea level, the Maldives’ islands are utterly beguiling, offering the discerning visitor a taste of peaceful serenity. Paradise is not lost after all.
