A remote archipelago formed by 26 natural atolls, the Maldives offers exceptional marine life and spotless white-sand shores. Relaxation is the order of the day here, and it’s served on a luxury plate with a side of old-fashioned Maldivian hospitality. Every resort has its own private island and unique personality. Find world-class dive sites in the Ari Atoll or stay close to the capital on the North and South Male Atolls. Days are spent snorkelling, diving, island-hopping or soaking up the sun with terrific views of the sea. In the evening, the night sky is so clear that you’ll feel like you can see each and every twinkling star in its entirety.
