The Maldives – A Perfect Paradise
Lying just to the southwest of Sri Lanka, the Maldives are a collection of around 1,192 coral islands that come together to create one of the most beautiful and romantic holiday destinations in the world. The islands are quite flat, with the highest point at approximately eight feet above sea level. There’s even a rule in place that says buildings are not allowed to be higher than the tallest palm tree.
Ring-shaped reef structures form the atolls and these reefs provide the natural defence against wind and wave action on these delicate islands so you can just relax and enjoy your luxury holiday. These beautiful islands sit directly on the equator, creating one of the most temperate climates in the world. The sun shines all year round and it is always warm and humid, with temperatures hovering around 29-32 degrees Celsius.
All Inclusive Holidays in the Maldives
Luxury Holidays in the Maldives
Holidays in the Maldives are all about dazzling white soft powdery beaches encircled by turquoise shallow calm lagoons with crystal clear waters coupled with lush green exotic vegetation providing shade on those sun-filled days - images of natural scenes to rival the Garden of Eden. Exotic all inclusive holidays in the Maldives mostly focus on barefoot romance, rest and relaxation.
The Maldives is home to some of the world's most diverse marine fauna and flora - 30 types of unique plant, a thousand recorded species of fish and over two hundred classes of coral which form tens of thousands of reefs. No wonder many see it as one of the greatest destination for diving holidays on earth. Diving is available all year round on your Maldives holiday and all centres are staffed by qualified dive instructors. All resorts have water sports centres providing a range of water sports and fun activities including snorkelling, windsurfing and catamaran sailing.
Discover the Indian Ocean
On each island by law there can be one resort and usually, therefore one hotel. This means that views are not spoilt by tall buildings that block the sun after a certain hour and beaches are not filled with hoards of people; enabling you to recline in utter peace. Most of the Maldivian islands provide their guests with that special feel of privacy and total seclusion.
Hotels in the Maldives tend to be 3, 4 or 5 stars with different styles of accommodation from superior and deluxe rooms and apartments to beach villas and the very popular water bungalows providing that exclusive and quintessentially Maldivian experience - a morning swim in the lagoon straight from the privacy of your bungalow's terrace.
When you’re feeling totally relaxed, there are plenty of island-hopping excursions on offer, such as visiting the capital Malé or a ride in a seaplane to take in breathtaking views of the whole region. Take an early morning cruise to see the sun rise and watch dolphins playing in the lagoon, a treat for any animal enthusiast, or head out on a night fishing cruise to enjoy the peaceful, still night under starry skies while you fish and end the evening with a barbecue including your very own catch.
Spas in the Maldives are in a world of their own, offering the perfect blend of luxurious therapies, health and beauty luxury experiences and sensory stimulation complemented by tranquil surrounding and blissful tropical beauty. Many of the treatments combine traditional Asian therapies with classic European spa techniques.
