The Ultimate Guide to Luxury Escapes in the Maldives
The Maldives is a destination well deserving of a place on most people’s bucket lists. Mark shares with us the importance of using a travel agent when planning a holiday to the Maldives and three resorts worthy of a place on your list!
There are over 160 resorts in the Maldives and we know the choice can be overwhelming when deciding where to stay. Whether it’s the thrill of diving, exquisite spas or a family holiday they offer it all. Here are some of my top recommendations for resorts in the Maldives.
A Retreat for Wellness: COMO Maalifushi
Nestled amidst the pristine beauty of the Maldives, Como Maalifushi is a sanctuary for wellness seekers. Beyond its luxurious accommodations, this resort specialises in holistic rejuvenation. Immerse yourself in world-class spa treatments, embark on yoga and meditation journeys, and tailor your wellness program to your needs. I’ve stayed here myself and from a wellness perspective I loved that you had the option for dining from the COMO Shambhala menu if you wanted to be healthy, but the option to dine for other menus if you were wanting to indulge – you are on holiday after all!
This is also a fantastic resort for seeing whale sharks (the season for this is November to April). Guests are given a phone and if whales sharks are sighted they will get a call and taken straight out on a boat to see them!
From £4,345pp for 7 nights with flights, a complimentary upgrade to half board and complimentary sea plane transfers.
Families in Paradise: Six Senses Kanuhura
For families yearning for both relaxation and adventure, Kanuhura is the ideal choice. Here, kids are in for a treat with the Grow with Six Senses kids club which offers an array of activities including children’s yoga and treasure hunts. There’s also an Island Hangout for teenagers to spend time with new friends. I particularly love the activities they put on for families to do together, such as family picnics on a private sland, renting a dhoni
boat to go dolphin-spotting or watching movies alfresco under the starlit sky. Kanuhura has recently reopened following an extensive transformation with new villas ranging from one to three bedrooms, making them a great choice for families.
From £9,245 for a family of 3, 7 nights with flights, complimentary upgrade to half board and discounted sea plane transfers
All-Inclusive Luxury: OZEN LIFE MAADHOO
OZEN Life Maadhoo redefines the Maldivian all-inclusive experience. From the enchanting M6M underwater restaurant to a myriad of water sports and curated excursions, every indulgence is included in your stay. Dive into the crystal-clear waters, savor exquisite cuisine, and explore the underwater world in the most remarkable way. This is another resort that I’ve personally stayed at and I can honestly say I’ve never experienced an all-inclusive package quite like it. There is no compromise on quality just because it’s included, which is very rare. Even Whispering Angel is part of the package.
From £4,145pp all-inclusive for 7 nights with flights & luxury speed boat transfers. Save up to £1,420 per couple.
