Maldives

Escape to white sand beaches and turquoise waters on a luxury holiday in the Maldives.

Located off the southern tip of India is the slender chain of coral islands known as the Maldives. A picture-perfect combination of oceanfront cabanas, overwater bungalows, aquamarine lagoons, and swaying palm trees, a Maldives holiday is the perfect time to treat yourself to a touch of luxury and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.

Our Abercrombie & Kent travel experts have decades of experience preparing custom itineraries for visitors in search of a unique, rejuvenating getaway. Whether you are celebrating your honeymoon, an anniversary, or you’re travelling with friends and family, we spare no detail in preparing a Maldivian holiday you won’t soon forget.

On arrival in the Maldivian capital of Male, you’ll be whisked away to your resort by speedboat or seaplane; both offer unique opportunities to take in the island’s saturated jewel tones from sea and sky. At your resort, how you spend your time is entirely up to you: set out on a guided surf lesson, dip your toes in the warm Indian Ocean, discover underwater marine treasures, or sunbathe from the privacy of your overwater villa.

Best Time to Travel to Maldives 

Tourism in the Maldives peaks between December and April, but travellers can expect hot temperatures and sunshine all year round. Monsoon season runs from May to October, but rainfall typically gives way to sunshine and makes for excellent surf conditions and a rich display of marine life.

Soneva Jani, located on one of the Maldives’ largest islands, is another elite escape: in addition to villas with private water slides, the resort’s central structure is home to a kids’ club and other family-friendly amenities.
