Reasons to Visit
Protected by reefs and lagoons, the islands that form the Maldives have beautiful white sandy beaches with little or no waves, allowing for a refreshing swim to escape the tropical heat.
A relaxing or romantic break is not complete without a rejuvenating spa treatment, so it is no surprise that the resorts that we work with have great spa facilities. Huvafen Fushi has an underwater spa with windows looking straight out onto the reef.
Famous for its immense variety of fish, corals and other underwater flora and fauna, the Maldives is amongst one of the best places in the world to enjoy snorkelling and diving with comfortably warm and often crystal clear waters. Turtles, sharks, Manta Rays and Whale sharks can be spotted, depending on the season.
The Maldives is renowned for its luxurious resorts. Whether you wish to stay in a villa on stilts in the water or on the beach or fancy your own plunge pool, we have a small selection of resorts offering the best value for your money.
Surrounded by tropical waters it is no surprise that the Maldives are a haven for some of the best and freshest seafood, but it doesn't stop there. The resorts that we work with all have great restaurants all employing experienced chefs guaranteeing a culinary delight.
Tiny palm clad islands, wonderful accommodation, tropical weather and the nearest big city at least 50 min flying time away, it is no surprise that the Maldives offer a relaxing escape from the hectic lives lived by most of us. As they say on the islands, 'no shoes, no news'.
