A dream holiday destination, the Maldives has much to offer and here are some reasons that travellers the world over keep coming back year after year.
Seclusion & Luxury
The country has more than 1,000 small islands, many of which are uninhabited. Luxury resorts the likes of Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives are each on a separate island providing a laidback escape away from the crowds; such coastal hideaways feature stylish beach or overwater villas, dining delights, water sports and sublime spa pampering!
Diverse Marine Life
There’s remarkable marine biodiversity here be it colourful coral or the over 2,000 fish species in the Maldives. Island resorts in the North Male Atoll are perfect for underwater adventures and some offer guided reef snorkelling and diving excursions; from a vibrant array of reef fish to thrilling shark encounters there’s much to enjoy.
This is a great year-round destination with heavenly tropical weather and glorious sunshine. The average daily temperature is 30°C and nights are a cooler 25°C. While the high season (November to April) is known for its sunny weather, the wet season (May to October) does bring rain but not all day so you can still soak up the sun.
A Safe Nation
With its stable economy and political system, the Maldives is a safe destination as well. This also encompasses pandemic-era travel; in 2020, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) bestowed the country with a “Safe Travels Stamp” highlighting the stringent health and hygiene protocols it had in place that’s been adopted at private resorts too.
