Like the little gems scattered in the vast Indian Ocean, each of the “2,000 islands” shows a surprising beauty, the highest level of luxury and unrivalled hospitality. Maldives combine all components of a 5-star vacation.
Going on a trip to the Maldives, you will not have to endure a shipwreck to get on a paradise island, because these islands are famous for the incredible ratio of five beaches on capita! Maldives attract thousands of tourists with luxurious beaches, excellent food, and the already mentioned traditional Maldivian hospitality.
Spend the day in the capital Male
An excellent choice to get to know country living one day in the colourful city of Male, capital of Maldives. You will find the hustle and bustle, scurrying fishing boats in the harbour, walking trips through the local market which is full of fresh products. Do not miss the opportunity to taste sweet but refreshing coconut juice.
It is always worth a visit to the mosque Hukuru bowl, built over 350 years ago and is decorated with intricate carvings. The capital is also full of wonderful local craft shops, where, among other things, you can buy jewellery made from local sea corals.
Relax and have a rest
Maldives is truly a bit of heaven on earth, and there are all conditions to relax and get away from your daily routine, especially when it is cold in our latitudes. The islands are the ideal place to rediscover themselves without doing anything more intense, as the admiring the views of the sea, read a book and sip cocktails on the deck.
Many of the top-notch resorts offer a wide range of exotic treatments. If you are looking for something very special, why not sign up for the first underwater spa in the world where you can take a relaxing bath in the underwater cockpit surrounded by tropics.
Leisure, sport and sky
In the Maldives, you get the whole range of underwater and surface entertainment that will delight all those who can not sit on a deck chair for too long. Here you can try yourself in windsurfing, wakeboarding to get an amazing experience, enjoy views of the islands in the warm waters of the ocean.
For those who want to explore the surrounding waters to the darkest depths, there is every opportunity to dive into the fascinating underwater world – the Maldives is famous as the birthplace of sea rays and whale sharks.
Where to stay in Maldives
Many resorts are located entirely on individual islands, surrounded by tropical wildlife. The island’s capital Male is located near the airport. Here you will find luxury hotels which are surrounded by natural vegetation and palm trees.
The other two thousand islands scattered across the Indian Ocean are available either by seaplane or by water taxi, and each of them combines the amazing beauty of nature, luxury service and amenities.
