The Republic of the Maldives is the smallest country in Asia, nestled in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. It is made up of nearly 1,200 small coral islands grouped into 26 atolls, providing beaches galore and plenty of access to the sea. Our luxury Maldives holidays are ideal for relaxation, swimming and diving. A range of activities such as dolphin cruises can also make luxury holidays to the Maldives an unforgettable experience.
Like many nations made up of islands, fishing is a big part of the Maldives' history and culture. Delicious seafood features heavily in their cuisine, and fine fish is one of their major exports. Their food is also influenced by Indian cooking styles, making for delicious food culture that will seem familiar-yet-different to many taste buds around the world.
The Maldives used to be one of tourism's best-kept secrets, only taking off as a major destination a few decades ago. Now tourism is one of the largest areas of the country's economy as people embard on luxury Maldives holidays to take advantage of the soft white sand, golden sun and sapphire seas. In spite of the destination's popularity, luxury private island resorts make it easy to enjoy a relaxing, private holiday away from the crowds. One example is Anantara Resort and Spa on Dhigufinolhu Island, a luxury private island resort with an extensive spa and a range of international fine dining options. Anantara Resort and Spa maintains a small number of spacious villas stuffed with amenities. We can provide custom stays at this resort, ideal for those who want to ensure that both comfort and privacy can be kept to a maximum.
One of the main attractions of the Maldives is the clean, bright, clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Many luxury holidays to the Maldives employ overwater suites for pleasant views and easy access to the sea. These are especially popular with honeymooners, but ideal for holidaymakers of every kind. If this interests you, we can arrange tailor made holidays to the Maldives to visit to Cocoa Island by COMO. Cocoa Island is a luxury resort that puts particularly strong emphasis with 33 luxurious overwater suites. The resort boasts an especially good location, on a private island which benefits from a warm lagoon and fine white sands.
Part of the Maldives' appeal is the abundance of clean and unpolluted natural beauty. The environment is certainly important to the Maldives, as the country has resolved to become carbon neutral by 2019. This same spirit of caring for the planet is exhibited by Soneva Fushi. Founded in 1995, Soneva Fushi pioneered the Maldives' place as a luxury destination. It was designed to provide a complete luxury experience in an environmentally-friendly way and was built with sustainable materials. We can provide holidays at Soneva Fushi which preserve the planet without compromising on comfort.
