The Maldives: Heaven on Earth

by Julia on July 26, 2017

The Maldives is a republic of over a thousand islands in the Indian Ocean, south-west of Sri Lanka and India, and is world renowned for being an idyllic and luxurious destination for vacationing.

No two islands are the same; therefore, there will be something for everyone wanting to escape from the maddening crowds. Whether you’ll prefer the north for its more favorable snorkeling, or the south for its diver friendly deep lagoons, the Maldives provide a wonderful seascape.

The Weather

With its dry climate and near perfect temperatures all year round, the Maldives is a favorite luxury destination that can be visited at any time of the year. Winter sun vacations are the most popular and costly time to visit the Maldives, but if you are vigilant, you can find your dream holiday with Voyage Privé.

January to April has minimal rain and hot temperatures, and is the most popular time as sun-seekers enjoy the clear blue skies. The rainy season begins in May and lasts until September, but the low-lying level of the islands means that clouds blow over quickly and rain is quick to pass; there are also fewer travelers during this period. October to December sees the return of long sunny days and rising temperatures, and an increased number of visitors.

The Beaches

If you were to describe your idyllic beach, you would be describing one of the Maldivian to a tee. The bone-white beaches and the clear turquoise ocean are breathtaking. With strict laws governing development in the Maldives, no beach is compromised by unsightly development. The resorts are on their own private island, and are encircled by a ‘house reef’ which creates a natural swimming pool and provides protection from tidal currents. Heaven is a place on earth.


Each resort is located on its own island and provides residents with awe inspiring views of the ocean without the hustle and bustle of usual beach scenes. The private lagoons are quiet and restful and give a real haven for relaxation. You can walk along the white sand beaches and even take moonlit dips without seeing another soul.

Spend time together

You may be looking at a Maldives vacation as a honeymoon, or perhaps as a special holiday for your family. With only the resort staff and other residents on the islands, distractions are minimal, and you can concentrate on relaxing and unwinding together. Everything in the resorts is designed for peace and harmony.

The Maldives provide the perfect luxury holiday solution for a variety of travel groups; if you are honeymooning your requirements will be different to those vacationers on a family holiday. Be sure to select a resort that will give you what you want, and provide you with the amenities that you crave. If you may want scuba lessons, for example, you’ll have to seek a resort who can provide such comforts. Research your resort to make sure they can offer everything you wish for and more. The Maldives is a place of idyllic relaxation; there’s no need to burden yourself in such a beautiful part of the world.
