Living the Life of Luxury in the Maldives


When it comes to choosing a luxurious holiday destination, the Maldives immediately springs to mind, and do I even need to explain why?

The ultimate Indian Ocean retreat with the warm tropical sunshine, white sandy beaches and luxury water villas. The blue lagoons and stunning coral islands are the most wonderful escape for romantics and honeymooners. With every single island as idyllic as the next, it’s difficult to choose from the hundreds out there. Not to mention the fact that it is home to some of the best scuba diving in the world, the most phenomenal variety of colourful fish, turtles, stingrays and would you believe…friendly sharks! More than anything I’m sure you’re looking to unwind, and luckily enough the Maldives is renowned for its wellness centres and pampering spas, so you truly will be in heaven. Keen on watersports? You can choose from swimming, snorkelling, water/jet skiing, wind surfing, a catamaran ride and countless more.

When dreaming of your romantic retreat far from the rest of the world, does an overwater bungalow set on stilts above the turquoise ocean, linked by raised walkways to the mainland whispering tropical paradise sound appealing? This accommodation is the ultimate sought after overwater experience, and certainly something you’ll never find in the UK. More than half of the overwater bungalows in the world are located in the Maldives, although they may look rustic from the outside, their comforts are anything but, luxury comes in abundance with these, not to mention the million dollar view!

The best weather tends to be from November through to April, with May and June sometimes a little more unsettled, with higher rainfall and choppier sea conditions, although a day in the Maldives without the sun showing is a rarity! Transferring to your hotel by speedboat or seaplane is just another part of the excitement. With seaplanes offering the most amazing views as well as the perfect way to begin and end your holiday. Another exciting journey you may choose to take by this amazing form of transport is if you decide to island hop during your stay, and with such a wide choice available its rude not to! It’s the most wonderful way to take in the staggering bird’s eye view.

Taking the standard night out to a whole other level, the hottest new resort for the Maldives is undoubtedly NIYAMA by Per Aquum, the world’s first underwater music club. The anything but ordinary resort is located in the South Western Atoll of Dhaalu, 40 minutes from the main island of Male. This ultra-cool club is the perfect post dinner destination for a tropical cocktail, to dance the night away, or obviously watch the spot lit reefs and sea life beyond.

If you had to choose somewhere to be castaway, the Maldives would most definitely be it. Drift dreamily in the Indian Ocean, most of the 12,000 isles are in fact uninhabited, and even the ones which are, all you’ll find in sight is tropical coconut palms, white coral sands and luminous turquoise seas. True paradise on earth.
