Maldives

Often referred to as ‘teardrops in the Indian Ocean’, the Maldives are undoubtedly some of the world’s finest and best-preserved natural wonders.

From bejewelled beaches and exposed sandbanks to swaying palms and crystal clear balmy waters with a myriad of wonderful sea life, these islands are truly breathtaking. Find your own deserted beach on which to enjoy a private afternoon of basking and bathing or snorkel among schools of brightly coloured fish, swim with dolphins and go whale watching: the Maldives are the ultimate destination for those wanting an unforgettably romantic experience. Enjoy the simplicity of nature elegantly combined with the decadence of 5-star luxury, including tiny islands offering a Robinson Crusoe-style experience, resorts with award-winning spas and imaginative amenities, and suites stilted over iridescent shallow lagoons. The islanders have an endearing sense of humour and a willingness to share and educate, so you will always feel welcome. The Asian-European fusion cuisine can be enjoyed in a multitude of settings from formal gourmet restaurant dining to intimate villa meals or even picnics on the beach; no matter which resort you choose, feelings of luxury and romance will pervade.
