Maldives Holiday Ideas

Talk of the Maldives generally conjures images of a romantic getaway or a honeymoon and don't get us wrong - it is sensational for both of these, but it is similarly great for a family beach holiday. After two recent trips researching the Maldives, Original Travel has picked the best resorts of a very, very good bunch, whichever kind of luxury holiday you're after.

Sabbaticals

“Sabbaticals are such stuff as dreams are made on” – what Will Shakespeare would have said had he worked a 9-5.

Winter Sun

As the evenings close in and the temperature drops, we at Original Travel brace ourselves for a scenario that goes something like this.

Beach Hotels

The beach: soft sand between your toes, warm sun kissing your skin, the sound of waves gently rolling onto the shore and the smell of salt in the air… essentially the travel dictionary definition of heaven.

Great Escapes

In an increasingly hectic world, sometimes a holiday just needs to be about sheer escapism – be that from the Great British weather (those rainy days just keep coming), the office, from the city, or even from the children. The exclusive escapes suggested here all incorporate more than a little indulgence, and the time and space to take time out from reality back home.

Diving

One of the fastest-growing pastimes on earth, diving’s popularity should come as no surprise. Most of the world’s best dive spots happily coincide with what are some of nicest places to be above water as well, making for the perfect combination, whether you want to snorkel, dive or just relax.

Best Beach Holidays

What’s your idea of the perfect holiday? Riding across the majestic savannah in Kenya? Enjoying exclusive access to a Buddhist ceremony in a remote Bhutanese monastery? Or just sitting on a beach having a well-earned rest from the rigours of daily life back home?
