Maldives: A pocket guide

Home to pristine beaches, an exceptional selection of sea life, and luxurious vacation homes, the Maldives are much more than a honeymoon hotspot. This string of coral atolls in the Indian Ocean is also a mecca for divers, and the perfect place to spend time with the family. Surfing, scuba, and island hopping keep fidgety family members amused, and after tracking turtles and swimming with stingrays along the remarkable cerulean coastline, what better place to retreat to your hammock with a well-deserved cocktail?

Prized as a wellness destination, the Maldives offer some of the most indulgent Ayurvedic treatments, to ensure you return home rested and restored. For residents of the private rental villas peppered across the Maldives’ swirling sands, morning yoga practice is likely to take place on the beach in front of a spectacular sunrise.

Whether you come with the family or on a couples vacation, be sure to make time for a romantic starlight dinner in an open-air restaurant. Due to the Maldives’ exclusive nature, you can rest assured that such precious moments will be enjoyed in optimum privacy.
