Discover Maldives

Offering the ultimate island retreat for beach lovers, divers, families and incurable romantics alike, a Maldives holiday has a lot to offer for visitors.

The Maldives is a stunning archipelago scattered across the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Just over 1000 coral islands are strung together in 26 clusters or atolls. Only 200 are inhabited and are home to our blissful resorts, typically with just one hotel per island. The home of ‘no shoes, no news’, the Maldives offers modern barefoot luxury at its very best.
Marine life: Lagoons teeming with marine life and house reefs just moments from the shore make your holiday in the Maldives ideal for snorkelling and diving. A host of other water sports including sailing are also available whilst sun downer and dolphin spotting trips are not to be missed.
Spa and relaxation: Chill out and relax with a good book and enjoy the stunning surroundings or pamper yourself with a blissful spa treatment. Some of the best and most unique spas in the world can be found here, whether underwater, in the jungle, or over the ocean.
Dine in style: Dining is a real pleasure in the Maldives with a vast array of cuisines on offer from around the world, all set in beautiful surroundings. Where else in the world do you get the opportunity to enjoy a meal on your very own private island?
Family activities: Many hotels in the Maldives have excellent kids clubs which offer a mix of energetic and creative activities from arts and crafts to hermit crab racing. Younger children can enjoy an introduction to snorkelling and diving in the safe lagoons, whilst teenagers can have a go at surfing. 
Honeymoon: The idyllic islands of Maldives are the perfect place for honeymooners - it is hard to beat the romance of tranquil waters, beautiful sunsets and dining alfresco under a canopy of stars on your own patch of desert island paradise.
