Africa is full of stories and there is an adventure to be had around every corner. Tailormade Africa brings you the best of these stories including safaris, wildlife, activities, accommodation experiences, conservation and African culture.
We know what you’re thinking. The Maldives is a destination that is purely for loved-up honeymooners who want to simply do nothing but lounge about for two weeks on the beach – right? Definitely not for the active adventurer type. Well, we are delighted to break that stereotype - the Maldives really does have so much more to offer and the great news is there will be no need to quarantine in the Maldives when you arrive.
The Maldives is made up of a chain of around 1,200 small coral islands and sandbanks which are grouped in clusters, or atolls. Only 200 of these are actually inhabited. Blessed with sugar-white sands surrounded by sapphire-blue seas and flourishing coral reefs, the country boasts some of the world’s most luxurious resorts, making it the ultimate island getaway.
In terms of activities, you’re in for a treat. Yes, by all means make the most of doing as little as you want. Enjoy sipping a cocktail by the pool, feel the Indian Ocean sun beating down on you as you lounge about on super-soft sand or dip your toes into the sea while you catch up on some guilty pleasure reading. But, if you’re up for something much more active then you really won’t be disappointed!
The waters surrounding the islands will be your playground for the duration of your stay. Home to up to 12 different species of whales and dolphins, you’ll get the chance to see them dancing around the boat as you head out to a remote island for some snorkelling, or before you plunge beneath the waves on a scuba diving excursion. The reefs in the Maldives are celebrated for their vividly coloured corals and staggeringly beautiful marine life. We can hand-on-heart say that you will want to purchase an underwater camera before you travel to capture the magic!
Other water sports you can try your hand at include kayaking, windsurfing, kite boarding, water-skiing, and paddle boarding, and if you’re keen to throw a line then the deep-sea fishing is absolutely magnificent and gives the chefs a chance to cook up your catch for supper! Freshly caught tuna is simply delicious. We would also highly recommend you enjoy a sunset cruise on a traditional fishing boat, known as a Dhoni – just incredible.
The resorts are also keen to surprise you with other more unique experiences. Private sandbanks are in no short supply, which gives you the chance to have a family day out, a romantic candle-lit supper or even sleep out beneath the stars! Some resorts even put up a faux screen so you can catch a movie while the sounds of the sea surround you.
We haven’t even touched upon the accommodation yet. The islands are home to some of the world’s foremost resorts, which offer sensational menus, breath-taking villas and soul-soothing spa treatments. There is a massive selection of superb dining options with the best from the east and the west. Sample some of the freshest seafood at an underwater restaurant or on your own private table on a candlelit beach. Each resort has their own spa where you could get lost in treatments from facials and 2-hour specialised all-body massages to Yoga Nidra and personalised weight-loss programmes.
And where will you be catching up with your beauty sleep after all this excitement? You can choose from decadent whole island resorts, atmospheric retreats, classically sophisticated bungalows with private pools, or over-water villas with their own house reefs all which comes with the incredibly warm Maldivian hospitality. However you want to experience this tropical haven, we can find the place that is perfect for you.
After all, everyone has a Maldivian holiday in them somewhere!
