Relax in luxurious surroundings
The Maldives are situated in the Indian Ocean south west of Sri Lanka, and consist of over a thousand coral islands grouped in a chain of twenty six atolls strung across the Indian Ocean.
These islands are fringed with colourful exotic coral and the amazing turquoise sea of the ocean is home to a rainbow of marine life. The Maldives are mostly flat although some have dunes, small lakes and marshes.
In traditional times the economy and livelihood of the Maldivians was based around fishing and crop growing and the area was renowned for tuna, cowry shell, coir rope, tropical fruits and vegetables. Today the economy is boosted by shipping and tourism.
The Maldives have many secluded resorts and each one is a self contained community with its own sports and leisure facilities, shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Maldives holidays offer various types of accommodation, thatched bungalows are set amongst tropical palm trees, whilst beach villas edge the crystal clear waters.
If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious and romantic, then book a water bungalow, these are built on stilts in the edge of the ocean, and the private balconies are perfect for star gazing long into the night.
