Welcome to the Maldives - the land of inner bliss, solitude, peace and tranquillity, where sands are as white as the smiles of the locals, where fish swim happily in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where the weather is a perennial summer dream, and where the deep rays of the sun wait to engulf you in their arms.
Maldives has deep blue seas, turquoise reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees. It is also a place full of local character, where its people have long spent their days perfecting the art of idyll living.
The Maldives is comprised of rows of atolls in the Indian Ocean, with a total of 1,190 coral islands formed around 26 natural ring-like atolls, spread over 90,000 square kilometres. These atoll structures are formed upon a sharp ridge rising from the ocean.
The weather in the Maldives is usually picture perfect: sunlit days, breezy nights, serene mornings, and iridescent sunsets. With the average temperature at about 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year, the sun is a constant on most days, shining through treetops, creating lacy patterns on your feet, healing cold-bones with its warmth.
For Maldivians, who love a good story, it is somehow fitting that the early history of the country is enshrined in myth and legend.
The islands of the Maldives are situated along the historical sea-faring trading routes of the Indian Ocean. Thus settlers and visitors from neighbouring regions and around the world have come in contact with the islands for as long as history has been recorded.
As a tourist destination, the Maldives is very accommodating to guests, but there are few things you may like to take note of before your arrival.
Normally your resort will book your transfer to their property either by speed boat, sea plane, or domestic flight according to their location and any specific option you or your travel agency may have arranged with them. For any special transfer arrangements, for example for business travel or non-resort travel, we will be happy to help you.
