The Maldives offers so much more than sand, sun and sea as the islands are blessed with a rich culture and heritage.
A holiday in the Maldives is a chance to gain an insight into this unique country, by exploring island villages, sourcing local handicrafts, visiting heritage sites and the National Museum, tasting local cuisine, and watching cultural performances.
With 99% of its territory being sea, the Maldives is one of the world’s leading watersports hubs with its environment of islands and turquoise blue waters forming the perfect combination for a natural watersports arena. All the resorts and the inhabited islands popular with tourists have a watersports centre of some kind, either with a fleet of windsurfing boards, sails and other equipment, or just a couple of wakeboards.
Mind, body and spirit benefit from the serenity of a holiday in the Maldives especially when this is enhanced with relaxing and rejuvenating sessions at a resort’s spa.
The first underwater spa in the world was created in the Maldives. This features two glass-walled underwater treatment rooms with panoramic views of a coral reef and curious fish and a soothing design inspired by the colours and textures of the sea.
