Imagine more than 1,000 coral islands formed around 26 natural ring-like atolls, scattered like tiny white pearls in the Indian Ocean, just across the equator.
This is a collection of some of the most exquisite and sought after islands in the world.
Picture cobalt blue seas, aquamarine reefs, heavenly white beaches, swaying palm trees, dazzling sunsets and pleasant temperatures all year round. These magical islands, each with their own spectacular encircling reef, are a quiet, unspoiled paradise just waiting to be explored.
With warm waters which are crystal-clear up to 50m, marvel at over 1000 species of passing fish ranging from tropical fish to mantas and sharks. Renowned as one of the world’s best diving destinations, be spoilt for choice with fascinating diving sites such as Banana Reef or Fish Head.

Cruise the inviting waters in a speedboat, sailboat or banana boat, relax and soak up the sun on the beach or go parasailing to discover the Maldivian archipelago. Or try a surfing safari to the best sites in these inviting waters.
The resort hotels are a haven for visitors, each with their own unique facilities from spectacular pools, sporting facilities, bars on the beach and dinners under the stars.
Choose accommodation from bungalows right on the beach, family villas or an over-water suite on slits with a splash pool or diving platform.
Transport from the airport to your resort will vary from a sleek motor boat to a seaplane ride with breathtaking views.
In the evenings, savour a delicious variety of fresh fish and seafood with an Indian and Sri Lankan influence and be entertained by the friendly Maldivians with Bodu Beru, their festive music featuring drums, song and dance.
