The Maldives is a stunning archipelago, gloriously secluded in the Indian Ocean.
The main island of Male is a densely populated and thriving hub – but while it is the epicenter of the nation, you probably won’t see it. If you’re going to the Maldives you are most likely headed for one of the beautiful outer island resorts. In complete contrast to Male, they are the quintessential in luxury and ideal for relaxed holidays.
One school of thought says there’s not much to do here. While this is fairly true, there doesn’t really need to be much.
The perfection of the beaches and the bathwater-warm sea provide you with all the daily activities you need. And when the evening comes you’ll have fine restaurants to dine in and upscale beach bars to drink and chat with liked minded people.
The Maldivian people have a proud Muslim heritage, although the younger generation and most staff at the hotels may not necessarily be devout or even Muslim at all. As a tourist you can expect to be treated extremely well – Maldivian standards of service and attention to detail are very high.
