Trip to the Maldives
The Maldives are without and doubt heaven on Earth. Unfortunately, they are slowly sinking due to the rising sea level. So, don’t lose your opportunity and visit these incredible islands now!
Here are a few tips about the trip to the Maldives: what do do and where to go! The Maldives is a haven for snorkellers and scuba divers, with its abundance of coral and sea
life. Its beaches and hotels don’t disappoint either.
- Where are the Maldives?
The Maldives is a group of over 1000 coral islands, set in the Indian Ocean. They are located on the south-west coast of India.
- Where can I stay?
It’s hard to beat the perfect combination of white sandy beaches, perfect blue seas and tropical sun and most hotels in the Maldives make the most of their surroundings by offering guests access to the beach directly from their rooms, or creating romantic areas for dinner and drinking. Boutique hotels go a step further than this by creating a relaxed, contemporary feel that makes guests feel right at home.
On the Ari Atoll lies the most exclusive hotel in the island group, the Dhoni Mighili. This stunning hotel sleeps just twelve people, and guests arrive either by luxury speedboat, private plane or romantic Dhoni. A butler sees to your every need. Eat, drink and sleep to your own schedule and make the most of every minute.
Or, if the North Male Atoll is more to your taste, the Hufaven Fushi is a decadent boutique hotel just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Male International Airport. Relax by your private pool, because there’s only your villa and one other on the whole complex. If you want a candlelit dinner on the beach, just say so. This experience is worth every penny!
- What can I see?
The islands that make up the Maldives are all small, and it is a good idea to visit more than one!. Many people come for the diving and snorkelling, but it may be worthwhile taking a trip to Male, the capital city, where markets, mosques and small shops may bring you back to everyday life. Otherwise, just take in the beauty of the coastlines and the ocean from your boutique retreat and soak up the sun. There is also fantastic wildlife! You can see sharks, dolphins and much more!
- How do I get around?
Only some of the islands fall within the heavily regulated tourist zone, which the Government has imposed to prevent the destruction of natural landscapes and villages. If you want to move between permitted islands, then you can fly or use a dhoni or speedboat. Most islands, however, are small enough to walk or bike around easily.
The Maldives might be exclusive, but if you have the time and you are prepared to indulge yourself, then there’s nowhere better to go.
It is truly the paradise on Earth!
