Maldives

The Maldives bring the quintessential images of white sandy beaches among the turquoise ocean to mind when mentioned. As a destination it encompasses all that you could ask for. Accommodation for lovers, families or friends that is so stunning your jaw will drop on a regular basis. Meals consisting of the finest produce, fresh from the ocean and seasoned from the islands herb garden, masterfully prepared by amazing chefs for you to consume in a striking setting. Activities from the sedentary hammock testing through to the more energetic surfing make sure that there is actually something for everyone. Take the opportunity to learn about coral regeneration, cook local dishes or enhance your yoga poses. Treat yourself with a spa treatment within a magical backdrop, see marine life at their finest in a spectacular environment and end the day with your drink of choice before heading to an outdoor cinema under the Milky Way..



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN MALDIVES



Destination Dining DESTINATION DINING

Break away from the meals being served in a restaurant.  Many resorts offer private dining experiences in amazing locations.  Isolated sandbars, beachside under a gazebo, in your villa, on a candle lit jetty or even a sunrise champagne breakfast - not much is out of reach.  You’ll enjoy scrumptious food in a magical setting. 

Outdoor cinema OUTDOOR CINEMA EXPERIENCE

Your resort may have an outdoor cinema set up on the island.  Relax on a beanbag, feet in the sand and enjoy a movie under the stars.   
Jet Skis WATER ACTIVITIES

Water activities are endless!  Try your hand at snorkelling, banana boat rides, surfing, sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding, parasailing to name a few.  And with a water temp of around 27 degrees, there's no getting out because you are too cold!
Wellness WELLNESS TREATMENTS

Whether you wish to indulge in a body wrap, some reflexology, a massage or just wish to have some polish on your nails, you’ll be able to find it available at the resorts spa centre.  The ingredients used sound good enough to eat, and often using some of the local goods too.  Yoga, Pilates or aqua jogging might also be available for you to start the day feeling zen.   
Own Pool SWIM IN YOUR OWN POOL

Sure, there are resort pools for everyone to use.  And you are on an island surrounded by water.  But to walk out the door and straight into your own pool is something to put on the postcard.  If you want to step straight in to the sea water, there are plenty of overwater villas, some of which have their own pool too, so the best of both worlds! 
Learn about environment LEARN ABOUT THE AREA

While education is not on the top of everyone’s agenda, the Maldives is a very unique environment.  Your resort may have skilled staff on so you can learn about coral regeneration, rehabilitation of marine life and sustainable practices.  Take time to chat to the resident astronomer or a marine biologist and learn something new.

Like most addresses in the Maldives, this one is no different - surrounded by crystal clear water and white sand underfoot, the island of Kodhipparu is perfect for spotting the many colourful corals and fishes that are literally at your doorstep.
