At Addicted to Maldives, we know there’s no place quite like the Maldives. With it’s white-sand beaches, towering palm trees, and crystal-clear waters, it is truly a place that exceeds your wildest dreams of island paradise. Beyond its jaw-dropping beauty, it is also home to some of the world’s most renowned resorts, which offer award-wining dining, world-class facilities and next-level luxury experiences, making the Maldives a destination that delivers on all its promises.
There’s a certain kind of magic you feel when you visit the Maldives, that’s very hard to put into words. It’s the type of magic that you need to experience first-hand, and once you’ve fallen under its spell, you just might find yourself planning your return holiday before you’ve even boarded your flight home…. which is a sure sign that you’re officially ‘Addicted’ to Maldives!
If you’re yet to discover the wonder of this unique part of the world, here are seven reasons why we believe the Maldives should be at the very top of everyone’s bucket list….
The colour of the water is truly #nofilter worthy – we like to describe it as ‘fifty shades of blue’ because the aquamarine, turquoise and aqua tones literally shimmer and glow in front of you when the sun hits the lagoon. You’ll be pinching yourself in disbelief the first time you see this effect for real!
The sophisticated and exclusive One&Only Reethi Rah, Joali, St Regis Vommuli and Velaa Private Island redefine the meaning of ‘indulgence,’ offering state-of-the-art luxury, elegant, expansive abodes, and intuitive staff that cater to every whim.
The Maldives is a place where every traveller is treated like royalty – there you’ll find Executive Chefs who create personalised menus, private butlers who are available to assist with any request twenty-four hours a day, and teams of dedicated staff who all work seamlessly to tailor your stay down to the finest of details. Once you’ve experienced the level of luxury offered by Maldivian resorts, all other holiday experiences fall short.
In an island paradise, there’s so many opportunities to create unforgettable memories as a family – whether that’s exploring the island via bike, chasing hermit crabs, heading off on snorkel sessions to find Nemo and friends, or enjoying ice-creams poolside at sunset - your family will find its new happy place in the Maldives.
During your stay, you might find yourself sitting at an exclusive six-seat chef’s table on a Monday, enjoying a matched-wine dinner in a subterraneancellar on the Tuesday, experiencing the romance of a sandbank picnic on a Wednesday, and dining on fresh lobster and champagne in an underwater restaurant on a Thursday!
A snorkelling session on the house reef will dazzle you, as you discover a kaleidoscopic underwater world of brightly coloured fish, (harmless!) sharks, gliding rays and curious turtles. Join a sunset dolphin cruise and watch as beautiful Spinner Dolphins come to surf the wake of the boat and show off their spinning skills, or take a trip to Hanifaru Bay, a unique biosphere zone that attracts large groups of majestic Manta Rays.
