Captivating Atolls of the Maldives

An atoll is defined as a ring-shaped coral reef or a string of closely spaced small coral islands, enclosing or nearly enclosing a shallow lagoon. 


Among the many atolls in the world like Tuvalu, Bikini Islands, Aitutaki Atoll or Tubbataha Reef, the Maldives atolls hold a very special place among all these natural beauties.

It's because the Maldives has 1,190 coral islands grouped into 26 naturally formed atolls offering breathtaking views when riding a seaplane! A real life Robinson Crusoe experience!

First and foremost, our hearts are with those who have been affected by COVID-19.

We are also delighted to let you know that all International Travellers are welcome in the Maldives again with effective Covid-19 related government protocols in place to ensure everyone’s safety.

  • Under current circumstances, tourists may visit other operational resorts subject to prior approval from the Ministry of Tourism. You are advised to inform the prior so that we may facilitate the approval process via the resorts.
