A string of idyllic coral islands scattered across aquamarine waters along the equator. Exquisite private island resorts encircled by sugar white beaches and calm turquoise lagoons provide the ultimate getaway for sun worshippers, divers and incurable romantics.
The Atolls The Maldives consists of 1,190 islands over 20 major atolls (island chains surrounding a lagoon). Malé, the capital, and Hulhule, where the airport is based, form part of the North Malé Atoll. Many of Trailfinders’ featured resorts are located here.
Diving & Snorkelling The scuba diving and snorkelling in the tropical waters of the Maldives are considered to be amongst the best in the world and the majority of our featured resorts have a recognised dive centre on site offering regular dive tours and night dives. There are also 25 protected dive sites and a huge diversity of underwater life. Please note water clarity is best from January to April.
Island Hopping Why not pair a stay on North Malé Atoll (reached by speedboat transfers) with a stay on one of the outer atolls (accessed via seaplane) for an unforgettable twin centre Maldives getaway? Alternatively, pair a stay in the Maldives with a fascinating private tour of India or Sri Lanka.
Unique Experiences Choose from a host of exquisite gourmet dining options including ITHAA, the iconic underwater restaurant at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. For an unforgettable whale shark encounter, LUX* South Ari Atoll organises snorkelling trips to see the world’s largest fish in their natural habitat. For the ultimate indulgence, PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi is home to the world’s first underwater treatment rooms at the futuristic LIME Spa, whilst Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa offers The Island Spa which is located on its own tropical island reached by traditional dhoni boat. For a quintessential and truly magical stay in the Maldives, choose one of the exclusive overwater villas for blissful ocean views, direct lagoon access and fantastic photo opportunities.
