The Maldives is all about luxury. For pure escapism, its sugar sands, swaying palms and idyllic island retreats are unrivalled. But it’s the light that strikes you most: European eyes are simply not accustomed to the infusion of saturated colour that comes as standard in these tiny Indian Ocean islands. It’s quite awe-inspiring.
Malé is the capital, but you’ll probably be leaving on a jet – or more accurately a sea – plane soon after arrival. First charted by British navigator Robert Moresby in the 1830s, the islands of the Maldivian archipelago number more than a thousand – yet nothing is more than a short hop away. At your resort, it’s paradise found, as you’re welcomed off the jetty with flowers, fresh juices and open arms.
There is world-class scuba diving here, along with an array of other watersports; but if that sounds too energetic, there are top-notch spa treatments to be had for the ultimate in pampering luxury. You’ll be staying, if not in an over-water villa (now a Maldives trademark), then among the palms, a mere step away from the gin-clear waters.
We will ensure your visit to paradise is unsullied by worry – from finding the perfect resort for you to organising seamless air or water transport, island hopping and activities, this will be a time blissfully free from care. You will come away with an unfurrowed brow, a rejuvenated body, and quite possibly a flower in your hair.
