    Pocket Guide: Maldives

    Pristine palm-fringed beaches, crystal-clear waters and a life of luxury is what attracts so many people to Maldives hotels. And it is rare that anyone is disappointed: wherever you choose to visit, from a choice of nearly 1200 islands, a taste of paradise awaits.

    The islands are strung out like glimmering beacons in the Indian Ocean, offering you some of the world’s best diving and snorkelling sites, as well as plenty of water sports and opportunities to just relax in idyllic surroundings. You’ll find that the richness of the marine life is mirrored by the delicious fine foods served in the gastronomic restaurants when you finally decide to surface for air.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in the Maldives

    Malé – Book a hotel in the buzzing capital city of Malé: a densely crowded and feels nothing like the relaxed islands that surround it. Yet, here you can find some fine shops and a host of great art galleries and museums. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, that is!

    North and South Malé Atolls – These atolls offer a different world to the capital altogether, yet they are just a short hop across the ocean away. Areas of the South Malé Atoll will suit the more adventurous traveller, whilst the North keeps it strictly luxury. On both you will find stunning natural beauty, both above and below the water. The channel dividing them is packed with excellent dive sites but, if it is the surf you are here for, the North Malé Atoll is where some of the Maldives’ best waves can be found.

    Southern Atolls – The islands here tend to be much less developed, which is perfect if you are looking to get away from it all. Here you can still discover the traditional Maldivian way of life, but you are never too far away from the safari boats, dive sites, surfing trips and watersports that make staying on the islands such a pleasure.

    Baa Atoll – Amongst the 13 islands that make up this atoll you will find the arts and crafts of the Maldives. They are known for their artisanal lacquer work and the production of feyli, a fine woven cotton sarong. The Baa Atoll is also a designated UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, recognised for the diversity of its marine life, and the sites it harbours where whale sharks and manta rays come to breed.

    Addu Atoll – Located in the far south of the Maldives is a heart-shaped atoll that boasts colourful coral gardens teeming with marine life that are ideal for snorkelers and divers alike.

    Things to See with a Hotel in the Maldives

    The capital city, Malé, has the pick of the museums and galleries: a trip here makes a refreshing break from all that paradisiacal beach beauty. Yet, what most people come to see in the Maldives are those stunning sunsets over pristine beaches which can be enjoyed on boat cruises, from the air in a helicopter or simply by ordering a cocktail and laying back on the sand.

    Things to Do in the Maldives

    Take a boat trip to secluded beaches on uninhabited islands and play Robinson Crusoe to your heart’s content, until its time to return back to your resort and be wined and dined once more. For a shot of pure adrenaline you can swim with a whale shark or watch a hammerhead feast on unsuspecting prey. Snorkel trips will bring you to vividly coloured coral gardens that you can marvel at, and often include some freshly cooked fish barbecued on the beach for lunch. You can head for the surf spots to try riding the waves, and there will be a beautiful backdrop to compensate any embarrassing wipe-outs you may suffer. Back on dry land why not enjoy home-cooked Maldivian food with a local family and discover the bustling markets and local cooking techniques? Most of all, though, just relax and enjoy being in paradise!

    "Beautiful Velassaru - a quick 20 minute speedboat"
    From the moment we arrived at Male, there was someone to meet us and guide us to the speedboat Upon arrival at the resort it was even more beautiful than the pictures. Magical. Beautiful beach villa - and the most relaxing time we have ever experienced. The buffet breakfast always had a good spread. Nice choice of restaurants and all the meals were very good. Staff were welcoming, but not in your space which we liked. Would definitely recommend this resort.

    "The Maldives in Style"
    If you are looking for a fabulous room with superb attention to your every need, you'll find it here. The choice of rooms is varied...we stayed in a spacious unit with its own plunge pool with a direct view looking out on the big ocean waves breaking on the reef just in front of our unit. The breakfasts were sumptuous and offered food for every taste....with dining out options also great. The main pool area was being renovated while we were there so I can not comment on this area or the big main bar area....we were more interested in sitting oceanside on the lovely beaches, so were more than happy anyways.

    "A slice os paradise"
    For couples, especially couples on a honeymoon or a special anniversary (we were on our 25th wedding anniversary) this place is perfect. The setting of white, soft sands in a clear blue sea with tropical greenery is impossibly beautiful. The villa is immaculate, clean and tastefully decorated. Out the back you have your own sun dec with table and chairs and two sun beds. Best of all there are a few steps which lead into the water. From there, using the borrowed snorkelling gear it's a short swim to the reef, which is full of colourful fish. The restaurant is very good, with some great dishes. As you might expect, the sea food is especially good. Although this is an Islamic country, there is no issue having a glass of wine (or just about any other drink you might like). We had a candle lit meal on the beach one evening and a meal on the sandbank. Both were very expensive, but both were fabulous. We also went snorkelling in the "Aquarium" reef, which more than lives up to its name. This is a paid for activity, but this included a very good guide and the boat ride out. Dolphin watching on the sunset cruise was another highlight, especially as the guide was the hotel's marine biologist, who had a great depth of knowledge and an enthusiasm for the subject to match his knowledge.
