Maldives Holidays: An Overview

Pristine white sands and crystal clear waters - the Maldives are arguably the most happening destination on the planet right now.

Miranda and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Pure and unadulterated desert island bliss - literally. There's no mainland, even the airport is on its own island, and all transport is by boat or seaplane - so you'll be island hopping from the minute you arrive
  • Some of the best hotels in the world in terms of luxury, service and serious wow-factor rooms (think over-water villas) - plus, each hotel occupies it's own private island

Original Highlight

Snorkelling in the crystal clear warm waters exploring coral reefs is like something from 'Finding Nemo' -amazing colours and creatures everywhere you look. I even came face to face with a (very friendly) turtle, which was a first!

A note on price

The Maldives is not a cheap luxury holiday destination, principally due to geography and the incredible standards of accommodation. Direct flights start from around £600 per person, but sky rocket in the high season. Hotels begin from around £2,000 per person for a week – but there are also hotels with rooms that cost that per night, so it really depends on your budget. Learn more about our pricing
