Maldives

Overview

If you’re looking to unwind in style, nowhere does luxury quite like the Maldives.

This a place for superlatives: these coral islands in the Indian Ocean really do have the bluest seas, the whitest beaches, and the best luxury hotels in the world. Whether it’s your honeymoon, a diving extravaganza or a luxury Robinson Crusoe experience you’re after, you can be assured of the highest quality of accommodation and service during your stay. Pamper yourself at world-class spas, scuba dive with manta rays in one atoll and snorkel with dolphins in another. Simply swimming in these clear, warm seas will bring you face to face with a kaleidoscope of colourful underwater life.

For those who are travelling from afar, the convenience of taking a speedboat from the airport is more attractive than getting on another domestic flight or a seaplane, and venturing out to the more remote atolls. These choices are perfect for mothers-to-be on their babymoons, families with young children who aren’t good with long journeys, and people who are shorter on time and just want to arrive at their luxury destination as soon as possible!

If you have more time and want to get somewhere truly remote and away from it all, we have options that are a short commercial flight away. Similarly, these options are perfect for honeymooners, groups of friends, and families with older children who are better with travel.

But, if you want ultimate Maldivian luxury experience, then a private chartered yacht is definitely the way to go. Explore remote atolls, scuba dive off the back of the boat, follow the best weather around the Maldivian archipelago. You can do whatever you want, and go wherever you want to go when you have your very own private yacht.

Lightfoot have chosen the cream of the crop and we’re on hand to match you with your perfect luxury island destination.
