Luxury Maldives Holidays

Maldives Overview

If you’re looking to unwind in style, you can't beat a luxury holiday to the Maldives. Located south of India, in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives consists of 1,190 atolls with a vibrant underwater life.

Throughout the Maldives, you’ll find supreme luxury island living with beautiful resorts offering private pool villas and overwater bungalows, excellent kids’ clubs, some of the best spas in the world and a huge variety of cuisines.

Capital Male is the jumping-off point for most luxury Maldives vacations and getting to your choice of Atoll is easy – most resorts are a quick high-speed boat ride or a short flight away.
