Barefoot luxury, overwater bungalows and the world's best snorkelling - welcome to the Maldives
Discover the ultimate in island escapism and barefoot luxury with a holiday to the Maldives. Warm clear blue sea, colourful atolls and palm-fringed pure white sand beaches. It’s all here in the Maldives, or as we like to call it, Paradise Found! Spread over 90,000 square kilometres, this idyllic string of Indian Ocean islands is the ultimate luxury beach holiday destination. Want to stay in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives? We can make it happen. Hop on a seaplane or skim across the sea by boat to arrive at your destination in style, leave behind the stress of everyday life (and your shoes!) as a barefoot, carefree way of life takes over, which is just how it should be. The crystal-clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, whilst the reef walls offer a fabulous collection of sea life for more experienced divers. The islands have a vast variety of marine life, with colourful corals and hundreds of different fish species including rays, moray eels and even whale sharks. The pristine beaches and deserted sand bars are perfect for family adventures, romantic honeymoons and everything in between.
When we think of a dream escape, the Maldives comes to mind, made up of over 1,000 islands and 26 atolls. The beauty of a getaway here is every resort lies on its very own island surrounded by clear waters, powder-white sands and palm-fringed beaches. Combine this with luxurious accommodation, exquisite cuisine, world-class hospitality, incredible marine-life and tailored experiences on request, you can expect the most luxurious holiday in your own slice of paradise.
COUPLES & HONEYMOONS
The Maldives has been a long-established destination for honeymooners and it’s no surprise why. Be whisked away on a seaplane or speedboat to a secluded retreat; stay in a luxurious overwater bungalow and step off your private deck straight into the cyan lagoon, take a romantic stroll along the beach and reminisce about your big day over a private dinner under the starry night sky. In the Maldives, you can expect the perfect start to married life.
SNORKELLING & DIVING
For snorkelling and diving, the breath-taking reefs make the Maldives one of the best locations in the world. When temperatures are warm and conditions are good, expect underwater visibility to sometimes be as high as 50 metres. With the top dive sites here and many resorts surrounded by marine-rich reefs, the striking underwater colours and abundance of marine life including manta rays, reef sharks and turtles are never too far away.
Although it may not be an obvious choice, the Maldives are a great option for a family holiday. Grab a snorkel and explore nature’s playground, discovering the underwater marine-life in the shallow, calm waters with the children, go dolphin-watching or simply spend quality time together and make memories in an island paradise. With accommodation ranging from luxury island resorts to all inclusive family resorts complete with kids clubs you can relax knowing that your children will always be entertained.
