Dive into our Destination of the Month: Maldives

Are you waiting impatiently for the borders to re-open, day dreaming about lazing on a sun-soaked deserted beach somewhere with a cocktail in hand? The Maldives is actually a lot closer than you think, and with pure white sand beaches, turquoise waters and breathtaking sunsets, it is the perfect holiday destination to plan for when borders open – after all, social distancing won’t be a problem when lying on a deserted beach.

Not only is it the ultimate beach destination, but the Maldives has a truly vibrant culture and some truly amazing experiences. Here are a few of our favourite stays and experiences. 

Soneva Fushi

At Soneva Fushi, experience spacious luxury villas hidden among dense foliage of the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. 

Our favourite highlights include:

  • Heading to the open-air Cinema Paradiso where the waves lap at the shore, the sea breeze rustles the treetops, and stars shine on screen and overhead.
  • Spending a romantic night camping under the Maldivian skies on your own private sandbank in a luxurious Bedouin-style tent. Breakfast is brought to you the next day!
  • Feeling the sense of freedom and adventure by stepping on to an iconic barefoot luxury ultra-indulgent yacht, the ultimate in exclusivity and privacy.
Gili Lankanfushi

Gili Lankanfushi, arrive on the shores of barefoot luxury. Perched on a tiny coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villas. The forty four stilted villas offer rooftop and over-water sundecks, featuring open air bathrooms, sumptuous daybeds and a personal entertainment center.

Our favourite highlights include:

  • Learning with a team of expert carpenters or ‘Gili Craftsmen’, who host an array of immersive arts and crafts workshops for guests to learn the tricks of the trade.
  • Popping on a snorkelling mask and pair of fins to head to the 15-metre drop-off zone at the edge of our house reef. Exploring its dazzling coral walls is like swimming in an aquarium and there is a good chance you will see turtles and rays.
  • Delighting in the excitement of flying over some of the Maldives’ spectacular atolls in a seaplane with our scenic Flight Experience. 
Heritance Aarah

Heritance Aarah, wake up to the soothing serenade of the ocean, be it beside soft, sun-drenched shores or above crystal waters of pure turquoise. These intimate villas and suites seamlessly blend indulgent comforts with traditional aesthetics for pure beachside bliss.

Our favourite highlights include:

  • Fly boarding, whereby the watercraft propel mechanism is redirected to two jets on the bottom of the fly-board, creating lift!
  • Eating food with heart, cuisine with flavour and a culinary journey of epic proportions – the food here is for the connoisseurs who appreciate the finer things in life. 
  • Embracing inner bliss at one of the most holistic Maldives spa resorts where healing hands gently soothe the senses and uplift your soul. Feel stress just melt away at one of six treatment rooms set above tranquil lagoon waters at the overwater spa, that features a steam room.

The Maldives remains a safe and secure destination to travel to and is naturally isolated. It is not just for honeymoons though, there is much to do for all ages, with endless activities. 

 

Start planning your trip today and be one step closer to swimming in the beautiful sea, having long lunches with amazing food and watching the sunset with cocktail in hand – the ultimate in social distancing!
