Maldives

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

Located in the Indian Ocean off the southern tip of India and Sri Lanka 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.

Award-winning Luxury Tours in Maldives

The Maldives is already touted as the pinnacle luxury tourism destination, but we see to it you are treated to an elevated VIP experience.

Honeymooners and couples seeking a romantic, luxurious holiday will enjoy tropical foliage alongside pristine coral reef and accommodations intelligently structured to give the feeling you have the island all to yourselves. With dedicated butlers and island hosts anticipating your every need, to world-class restaurants and spas, your stay includes all the ingredients necessary for a peaceful week in paradise.

Inspired Accommodation in Maldives

We take the guesswork out of selecting your luxury accommodation; each resort we partner with is ideally situated and offers security, privacy, and an assortment of thoughtful, memorable excursions. Sip on cocktails in your private plunge pool as you watch the sun dip below the horizon line, embark on a snorkelling safari, or enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach.

Guests can choose between beautifully appointed beach suites and overwater villas complete with thatched roofs and Maldivian-inspired furnishings.

If you are in the market for an away-from-it-all experience, COMO Maalifushi—a luxury resort located on the relaxing and remote Thaa Atoll—is a fine choice. Milaidhoo, nestled in the breathtaking Baa Atoll offers reinvented luxury, spacious outdoor living and five-star service. At Milasihoo it is all about the finer details. One&Only Reethi Rah, as one of the more spacious islands, offers a ultra-luxury all-villa resort experience whilst Baros, a smaller and more intimate resort prides itself on exceptional service and is only a short speedboat away from Male International Airport. 

Destination Highlights

To ensure your luxury holiday in the Maldives exceeds your expectations, we invest the time ahead of your departure to learn what types of activities and excursions you prefer when staying at a luxury resort. Your itinerary can be customised to include:

  • Guided yoga and meditation
  • Half- and full-day outings to private, white sand islands
  • Conservation activities with resident marine biologists
  • And more…

When to Go

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.

Note
All Maldives bookings must be sold in conjunction with a 6 night A&K itinerary.
