Welcome to Maldives
In Male Specks of emerald green enveloped by dazzling turquoise waters like scattered beads in the ocean;
also white powdery beaches, tall palms lean on towards the sea, crystalline white sands giving way to crystal
clear waters, shades of turquoise blend flawlessly with deeper hues of blue; pristine coral reefs and some of
the most incredible underwater life on our planet.Rising from the deep blue of the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean are more than a thousand islands and thousands more reefs that form the Maldives.
What better place to relax and enjoy yourself than the romantic dunes that adorn these islands. Imagine a place that is nothing but surf and sun; where paradise meets reality. You can choose any of the ninety resorts islands across the Maldives for your honeymoon or holiday stay; allowing yourself the freedom to explore everything is amazing tropical wonderland has to offer. Everything has been designed with the luxury and comfort of travelers in mind, which is why per capita it is the busiest tourist area in the world.
Half a million people every year rediscover this paradise. Sunny, unique and unspoiled, the Maldives is an archipelago comprising 1,190 low-lying coral islands scattered across the equator, in groups of 26 naturally occurring atolls which are divided into 20 for administrative purposes. Maldives islands are characterized by a unique coral nature and thus they posses unique tourism resources though in a one-sided way, namely in the submarine and littoral environment of the islands, lagoons and reefs, associated with the year-round tropical climate.
Unrivalled luxury, stunning white-sand beaches and an amazing underwater world make Maldives an obvious choice for a true holiday of a lifetime.
Maldives is home to perhaps the best beaches in the world; they’re on almost every one of the country’s nearly 1200 islands and are so consistently perfect that it’s hard not to become blasé about them. While some beaches may boast softer granules than others, the basic fact remains: you won’t find consistently whiter-than-white powder sand and luminous cyan-blue water like this anywhere else on earth. This fact alone is enough to bring well over a million people a year to this tiny, remote and otherwise little-known Indian Ocean paradise.
Resorts for Everyone
Every resort in Maldives is its own private island, and with over 100 to choose from the only problem is selecting where you want to stay. At the top end, the world’s most exclusive hotel brands compete with each other to attain ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools to in-room massages and pillow menus. It’s not surprising that honeymooners and those seeking a glamorous tropical getaway have long had the country at the very top of their wish lists. But there’s also plenty of choice beyond the five- and six-star resorts.
Maldives has undergone seismic change in the past 10 years, since inhabited islands have been opened to tourism and locals permitted to build their own guesthouses. Travellers no longer have to stay in resorts and remain separate from the local population, something that kept backpackers away for decades. Island hopping by public ferry, speedboat and domestic flights has opened up this incredible country to visitors on almost all budgets. A number of islands in Male and Ari atolls are now big centres for a booming guesthouse industry, with dozens of options on each.
With some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world, the clear waters of Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. The richness and variety is astonishing; dazzling coral walls, magnificent caves and schools of brightly colored tropical fish await you when you get down to the reef. In deeper waters lurk manta rays, turtles, sharks and even the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. The best bit? The water is so warm many people don’t even wear a wet suit.

THINGS YOU CAN DO ARE ENDLESS
SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE
Mind, body and spirit benefit from the serenity of a holiday in the Maldives especially when this is enhanced with relaxing and rejuvenating sessions at a resort’s spa. There are an estimated 110 top quality spas at island resorts plus some spas in Male’ and even one in the public terminal at the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, as well as informal ones catering to guests staying on inhabited islands.
THRILLING SIDE OF LIFE
Because of its marine location, the Maldives boasts every kind of water-based adventure sport from paddling around a lagoon in a transparent hulled canoe to being propelled several metres below the surface of the sea by underwater scooter, or gliding several metres above the surface dangling from a parachute behind a speedboat. For the energetic and adventurous, the Maldives is just as rewarding a destination as it is for the laidback sun worshiper or sophisticated epicure.
With 99% of its territory being sea, the Maldives is one of the world’s leading watersports hubs with its environment of islands and turquoise blue waters forming the perfect combination for a natural watersports arena. All the resorts and the inhabited islands popular with tourists have a watersports centre of some kind, either with a fleet of windsurf boards, sails and other equipment, or just a couple of wakeboards.
Not all the resorts favour motorised watersports like jet skiing because of the pollution and noise disturbance to the serenity of the resort. On the other hand, many resorts support watersports like canoeing and paddle surfing because of their minimal effect on the peaceful environment. Some of the popular thrills to be had from adventure watersports are listed here.
FUN SIDE OF LIFE
Having fun in the Maldives
The Maldives is unusual as a holiday destination because of the fun things to do whether you are staying on a plush resort, in Male’, or in a simple guesthouse on an island in a faraway atoll. Entertainment and daily excursions are organised at every resort so don’t be shy about joining in. Excursions will include fishing and cruising (to watch dolphins dance) as well as visits to the capital, Male’, and to genuinely deserted islands, perhaps for swimming and a picnic, and shopping expeditions to neighboring inhabited islands.
If you stay in a guesthouse on an inhabited island, you will have the chance to meet Maldivians, experience local culture and cuisine, and join in what the islanders do for relaxation, such as playing football in the late afternoon or relaxing over a soft drink and eating “short eats” (small snacks) in a seaside café.
You will be able to organise fun activities for yourself, like going on a dhoni (local boat) to try your hand at line fishing, or swim in crystal clear lagoons watching marine life through a snorkel.
MALDIVIAN SIDE OF LIFE
Getting to know the Maldives
The Maldives offers so much more than sand, sun and sea as the islands are blessed with a rich culture and heritage. A holiday in the Maldives is a chance to gain an insight into this unique country, by exploring island villages, sourcing local handicrafts, visiting heritage sites and the National Museum, tasting local cuisine, and watching cultural performances.
With a total area approximately the size of Portugal but a land area comprising islands and sandbanks about the size of Singapore, islanders were isolated from each other by the ocean that forms over 99% of the country. Their self-sufficiency is reflected in the implements and clothes they fashioned for themselves, which have become today’s handicrafts, and in agriculture. Some islands are very fertile, lush with mangroves and with interior ponds. Every island supports vegetation of some kind with coconuts somehow managing to thrive in a small, sparse land area. Careful nurturing on islands devoted to agriculture has fostered the growing of papaya, peppers, eggplants, melons, limes, breadfruit and bananas.
As in the past, Maldivians today are adapting to the climate. Before mechanization they depended on the monsoon winds to enable them to sail between the islands or to Ceylon for trade, when voyages back and forth would take many months. Now climate warming is seen as an issue and the Maldives is in the forefront of creating a worldwide awareness of this potential problem.
ROMANTIC SIDE OF LIFE
For couples, a romantic holiday in the Maldives is a chance to be together in a way that never happens at home. Accommodation on a resort is not just a room, it’s a private love nest designed for the romantic. Villas are secluded in lush vegetation or isolated above a lagoon. The interior décor is soft, muted tones of distinction, the furnishings are impeccable, the bed is large and blissfully comfortable, the bathroom luxurious. Gaze from the veranda to a panoramic view of the lagoon lapping the beach and of coconut palms waving on the shore. Even the breeze seems to whisper romance.
Just as there are resorts more suitable for families with children or for enthusiastic divers, there are also resorts designed for those in love, whether beginning life together, renewing their vows, celebrating a wedding anniversary, commemorating their years of partnership, or simply wanting to get back in touch with each other away from the humdrum of daily life.
Such resorts are rich in the privacy and discretion created for couples to be together. The ambiance is dedicated to the romantic side of life. The tropical scenery, the island tranquillity, the lack of crowds, the perfect attention to detail and service, the finesse, the fun and the leisurely life with time to enjoy each other, embrace the essence of perfection.
COLORFUL SIDE OF LIFE
It is estimated that nearly half the guests on holiday in the Maldives arrive with the intention of snorkelling or diving or, as soon as they see the crystal clear waters of an island’s lagoon and the colourful fish and corals, can’t resist giving it a try. Snorkelling is open to everyone who can swim and even children as young as ten can learn how to scuba dive. It’s easy in the Maldives.
