If you’re yearning for paradise then a holiday to the Maldives is your best bet. Bask in unrivalled luxury, have dinner under-the-sea and sleep over the water, go diving in the crystal-clear sea and embrace some much deserved R&R.
One reason people flock to the Maldives every year is because of the incredible all-inclusive resorts, most of which are situated on their own private island. If you like a cold drink whilst lounging around the pool, it’s important to do your research before you go, the Maldives is predominantly a Sunni-Muslim country, so alcohol is only available at hotels and resorts. There are some all-inclusive packages that include alcoholic beverages and others that don’t, so it’s worth checking before you book!
Discover its underwater world
If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at snorkelling or diving, then the Maldives is a great place to start. The beaches are surrounded by reefs that are brimming with wonderful tropical wildlife. Snorkel in the luscious lagoons and enjoy the surroundings as exotic fish dance around you! You may also come across calm manta rays and smaller sharks just off of the coastline. If you’re an avid diver, then you’ll probably already know that these isles are some of the best spots to go scuba diving in the world. Don’t worry if you’re a beginner though, these are perfect conditions for you, too! Be mesmerised by the vibrant coral reef and its inhabitants, swim alongside turtles and be fascinated as the gentle giant whale sharks glide past.
Dine under the ocean and stay over the water
Descend nearly six metres underneath the water and discover the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant at Hurawalhi Island Resort. Prepare to be dazzled not just by the water but by the culinary expertise of the chefs there, which makes this place as much fine dining as it is an extraordinary design masterpiece. Once you’ve dined at this fantastic restaurant, go and have a lay down in your resort and experience a holiday like no other. This is one of the best things to do in the Maldives and really showcases the luxury experience. Most resorts on these islands have villas that sit over the water, meaning you’ll wake up with incredible views of the Indian Ocean and enjoy breakfast while watching the wildlife beneath the waves.
Beaches that resemble paradise
It goes without saying that the main reason people visit the Maldives is because of the consistently perfect beaches, and with super-soft white sand and crystal clear water, we can see why. Enjoy your dinner on the beach under the stars, relax by the calm water with a cocktail or take a dip in the warm Indian Ocean – there are so many ways to enjoy the shore here. Take a trip to the neighbouring islands and you’ll soon realise that this paradise is mirrored no matter which resort you decide to book.
Book a stay at Huvafen Fushi and you’ll have the chance to experience a spa that’s fully submerged under the sea. Sit back and relax while the currents ebb and flow, the fish glide by and diffuse bubbles slowly rise to the surface of the ocean, you’ll be in complete serenity here. The spa features two underwater couples’ treatment rooms with panoramic reef views and the rooms are decorated with inspiration from the colours and textures of the sea.
