Plan a tailor-made escape or honeymoon to the Maldives and unwind on desert island beaches

The Maldives are about infinite-seeming horizons broken only by a distant, palm-fringed atoll or the occasional outline of a dhoni sailboat. Our specialists have journeyed around this scattered island-nation, seeking out the most exclusive spots and properties in a destination that’s already renowned for offering utter seclusion. They’ll orientate you toward particular islands and hotels that fit your interests and specifications, and can also suggest ways in which you can combine a Maldives holiday with a trip to the Indian Subcontinent, or farther afield.

A stay in the Maldives can be as energetic or leisurely as you wish. You might choose to experience an underwater spa, or take snorkeling tours of house reefs with marine biologists. Go diving, observe manta rays and even whale sharks, and swim in balmy lagoons. Take an evening cruise to spot dolphins, or simply idle away hours on your own thila (sandbank) with a picnic.
