The remote Republic of the Maldives is a sovereign archipelagic nation located in the Indian Ocean. Made up of more than 1,000 coral islands and known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs, the Maldives is also famous for luxury resorts. The rich and vibrant culture and cuisine have been greatly influenced by the Indians, Sri Lankans, Arabs and North Africans who traversed the trading routes of the central Indian Ocean over centuries.

Ariel view of Maldives

Viewed from the air, the atolls and reefs that make up the Maldives look like bracelets with precious diamonds and emeralds scattered on a cushion of deep blue. The sense of something priceless is only further enhanced upon arrival. There is something exquisitely romantic and enthralling about visiting a tropical island that you can only reach via speedboat or seaplane. When you close your eyes and imagine being shipwrecked on a white sand beach surrounded by turquoise waters and far away from the stresses of everyday life, you have described the Maldives.

Feel tensions melt away as you float on an infinity pool and gaze into the endless distance. Roll from your bed and flop effortlessly into the sparkling turquoise water, taking full advantage of your water-villa’s proximity to the lagoon. Or plonk your day bed on a deserted spit of sand and let the sound of lapping waves on the beach lull you gently.
