Maldives Holidays 2022/23

Where the fringe between the sea and sand is your favourite place; most of the Maldives happens on this merge of land and sea. With overwater villas and sunbleached decks, your holiday becomes married to the sea in an unforgettable way. Imagine waking up from your bed to watch the sunrise directly over uninterrupted views of the azure blue sea and light blue sky meeting every day. The waters are so clear that you don’t need to snorkel but should you want to venture further into the sea, the reefs and coves are teeming with life including sea turtles, dolphins and basking sharks.

Powdery white sands give way to crystal clear waters that are a shade of turquoise, blending flawlessly with deeper hues of blue. Rising from that deep blue vast expanse of the Indian Ocean are more than a thousand islands and immaculate reefs that form the Maldives. What better place to relax and enjoy yourself than the romantic dunes that adorn the Maldives islands. A place that is surf and sun, where paradise meets reality. There are many resort islands across the Maldives from which you can choose to have your dream holiday, wedding or honeymoon stay. Each allowing exploration of this tropical wonderland and where everything has been designed with the luxury and comfort of the traveller in mind.
