The enchanting archipelago of the Maldives is named from the Sanskrit ‘mālā’ meaning garland and ‘dvīpa’ meaning island, a fitting name for this group islands and atolls sheltering over 1000 coral reefs in the warm waters of the Indian ocean.
Soak up the sun year-round and enjoy the refined, unique hospitality offered by the lovingly curated group of resorts dotted individually across the islands. You will find a blend of simplicity and luxury, where untouched nature meets sumptuous comfort and unrivalled privacy.

The draw of this unique islands’ nation is far more than just world class hospitality and pure relaxation. For experienced underwater adventurers and intrepid beginners alike, diving in the Maldives is second to none. Tour the islands’ protected coral reefs, in particular, the designated UNESCO biosphere reserve of Baa Atoll and spot native fish species, dolphins, whales, manta rays and sea turtles in their colourful, otherworldly natural habitat.
A nation as passionate and proud of its rich cultural heritage as of its biodiversity, soak up the history through its food, music, and of course, the welcoming local communities. Sample the sweet, sour and spicy flavours in grilled fish and curry dishes as you dine on the beach and think back to the Maldives place on the historic spice route where influences from Indian, Malaysian, Arab, Persian, Indonesian and African traditions arrived and can be seen and experienced still today.
