Your Guide To The Maldives

The Maldives' ideal position on the equator gives it an all-year-round warm temperature averaging between 25° - 32° C. The islands boast a rich cultural mix thanks to its position on the historic spice route, with food heavily influenced by Sri Lanka and South India. Experiences in the Maldives are out of this world and are unique to each island.

The Maldives is home to one of the most delicate environments anywhere on the planet, with coral reefs as the foundation of the islands. Several resorts conduct their own conservation programs such as the protection and rehabilitation of sea turtles, as well as the protection of the coral reefs. 

Unique experiences come in the form of dining underwater, stargazing, diving with manta rays and whale sharks, and enjoying privacy in your very own over-the-water bungalow. Resorts range from chich and boho to ultra-luxury, with an island to suit everyone's needs.
