The breathtakingly beautiful white sandy beaches, the natural foliage, the oceanic mysteries and the manmade luxuries that characterize the many islands of the Maldives has made it a firm favorite with European and US travelers alike. In fact, one often hears of the celebrity vacations and getaways at the island resorts as they offer literally everything that oneâ€™s heart can desire.
The opulence that typifies Maldivian resorts is unparalleled. The luxury villas and suites that come with private pools, direct lagoon and sea access, dining by design- where one wants, when one wants, the cruises, the diving, the island picnics, the movies under the stars; these are all part of a dream world that come alive in the Maldives for the discerning traveler. For those who spend countless hours of their lives, slogging away at their offices, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be treated like royalty and just relax and be pampered is magical.
The Maldives is home to some of the best dive sites in the world, and is also where you can find the best and undisturbed coral reefs. The sea life is teeming with sharks, turtles, dolphins, manta rays and every kind of fish imaginable. For vacationers who love the water, this is truly paradise. For those who arenâ€™t particularly partial to swimming alongside sharks, the spa experiences (each resort has its unique selling point for spas), the local cultural activities, the cycling, the golfing and shopping for souvenirs, call out.
And the foodâ€¦.well, how to describe the food? A melting pot for different types of cuisine from around the world, the Maldives has some of the best international chefs cooking exotic dishes, conducting wine-tastings, cookery demonstrations and all things gastronomical in the most perfect setting- sometimes under the water, sometimes beside it, sometimes above the tree-tops, sometimes on a private islandâ€¦..you never know where youâ€™ll end up!
And thatâ€™s the beauty of the Maldives; there are so many surprises (good ones) that make you wake up, rejoining at each day. What a perfect life that isâ€¦
