Three unique experiences to enjoy during your tailor-made holidays in the Indian Ocean
There’s no better time to go to the Maldives than between November and May, when the temperatures are fresh and the air is dry… and leaving the cold behind is your most tempting desire!
The 22 atolls of this island nation fleck the ocean like a pearly necklace. There are endless activities for couples or families: swimming and snorkelling the coral reefs, picnicking on seemingly abandoned islets, cruising a wind-driven Dhoni at sunset, going on an exciting fishing trip, diving excursions to underwater caves, and so much more.
Here are three unique experiences to enjoy during your tailor-made holidays in the Indian Ocean.
#1 To go on a World-Class cruise
Thousands of islands sprinkle the Maldivian archipelago, and a voyage on board the Four Seasons Explorer offers a seafarer’s gaze over the stunning North Male Atoll, where visits to outposts complete with beach-side massages, diving in the UNESCO biosphere reserve at Baa, and visits to tiny villages on the cusp of islet shores are a must. A few night’s sleep on the floating cruiser, then a few more in a posh villa at the resort’s island will do wonders in driving away thoughts of the weather back home and the papers on your desk.
#2 To feel sand between your toes
On one of the northernmost islands – in the atoll of Haa Dhaalu – it is essential to take off your shoes and enjoy its very long white sandy beaches and its vast lagoon with crystal-clear turquoise water. Go one step further at the Barefoot Eco Hotel by indulging in fresh local seafood and produce, as well as the special detox fruit bar. Children will particularly love the bubble making and open-water diving courses, and school work will be the furthest from their minds during their vacation in paradise.
#3 To embrace romance under the sun
Create unforgettable memories with your other half under the sun of this paradise island! You will never find a more picturesque place to share a romantic moment with your loved one. Located on a small private island on an isolated atoll, Hotel The Residence offers you villas on the beach and others on stilts. Spend your days in a sunny idleness under the coconut trees and the sun! Floating from your terrace to the beach, from your pool to the crystal-clear waters of the ocean, there are many activities between land and sea to fulfil your romantic adventure. Take the opportunity to kayak, windsurf, paddle-board or sail a traditional dhoni to admire the sunset surrounded by dolphins! For an intimate moment, pamper yourself with exclusive therapeutic treatments and massages at the Spa by Clarins overlooking the sea.
No matter where your eyes land, shades of blue cross your eyes: from turquoise to azure blue and cerulean. Come to a place where the sky meets the sea, and leave your worries behind.
