About the Maldives
The Maldives offer idyllic surroundings for couples who want to savour intimate moments together in a unique, serene environment – just one reason why it is rated as one of the best beach holiday destinations in the world.
Discover a choice of tranquil and pampered settings on any of the more than 80 exclusive resort islands, which are mostly covered by lush tropical vegetation and encircled by gorgeous palm-fringed and sugar-white beaches.
Things to do and see
Relax in exotic seclusion overlooking stunning sugar-white beaches and pristine coral reefs. Wake up to the sound of rippling waves, spend a lazy morning on your private sundeck over the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean or take a plunge in your private infinity-edge pool.
See colourful reef fish, including the remarkable powder-blue surgeonfish, from a private sundeck or through the glass floor of an over-water villa.
Cruise to an uninhabited desert island for a seafood and champagne luncheon, enjoy water skiing thrills or go game fishing for tuna. Dive pristine offshore reefs that are famous for their wealth of marine life, or go swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing in sheltered lagoons.
At sunset, sail on a traditional dhoni fishing boat while dolphins play alongside or settle into moments of pure romance while sipping champagne in the privacy of your stylish villa.
The Maldives offers a choice of stylish and luxurious beach villas and over-water suites often situated on idyllic private islands that fringe tranquil lagoons.
Maldives resorts are spread across the 250 inhabited islands of the Maldives, with the atolls of Lhaviyani, Alifu (North and South Ari Atoll) and Kaafu Atoll – site of the capital Malé, the airport and most resorts – being the most popular.
