Maldives

Romance, adventure, the magic of beauty unfolding in barefoot luxury… these are the words that say it of all of the islands of the Maldives.

It’s the perfect natural combination for the ideal tropical destination.

Turquoise lagoons surround the glistening beaches of the 1,200 or so islands that make up the 26 coral atolls of the Maldives.  Creating a dreamlike picture of a thousand gems scattered on a bed of blue velvet, fading into the distance as the sea merges with the sky.

Known to the world as a treasure trove of marine life, Maldives has earned itself the reputation of being one of the best diving destinations in the world. All of the resorts have professional dive schools with fully qualified instructors offering a range of courses.  Dive schools organise daily dive boat trips to sites around the islands throughout the year..

Breathtaking suites sit on stilts over the crystal clear waters, dine in stylish à la carte restaurants which serve up a delightful array of dishes and luxurious spas are ready to welcome you to rejuvenate your body and soul.

Each resort is on its own private island for that added touch of shipwrecked bliss.  The perfect place to come and unwind with that pile of books you never get round to reading. It’s an enchanting destination for honeymooners and couples, and a safe haven for families looking for watersports, beachfront living and warm hospitality.
