Overview :

Located southwest of India, the Maldives is a group of nearly 1,200 small coral islands that form an archipelago of 26 atolls spread out over the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

Each resort is set on its own island, offering seclusion and privacy, and many are well known for having some of the largest and most luxurious over-water villas of any island destination. Always natural, promising you a holiday of a lifetime, Maldives is truly the ultimate in long haul luxury. With pristine white sandy beaches, azure blue lagoons, palm fringed islands and deep blue Oceans, Maldives offers breathtaking nature and sheer beauty. Powder-soft beaches with spectacular ocean views lead to beautiful lagoons and beneath the water, the coral coastline forms an intricate underwater paradise resplendent with marine life.

With its warm temperature and exceptional clarity, the water off the Maldivian coasts is renowned for breathtaking snorkeling and diving spots. Endless skies and crystal waters in shades of blue edged by white sands soft as powder are surely the ultimate fantasy for romance.
