About The Maldives

The Maldives is made up of a chain of nearly 1,200 islands, lying south-west of the Indian sub-continent in the Indian Ocean. The islands are grouped in a double chain of twenty-seven atolls, most of which consist of a large, ring-shaped coral reef supporting numerous small islands. The islands are mostly tiny, averaging one to two square kilometres in area, and no individual island is longer than eight kilometres. The Maldives lies between 1-1.5 meters above sea level, with the highest island situated at just 3 meters above sea level.

Only around 200 of the islands are inhabited, with around 164 of them being developed as tourist resorts. Home to perhaps the best beaches in the world, almost luminous cyan-blue water as well as some absolutely staggering marine life, it is this heavenly combination of natural treasures that brings over a million people a year to this tiny slice of paradise every year. Every resort is its own private island, and with over 100 to choose from, the only problem is selecting where to stay! This is where we can help. Whether you are travelling as a family, on honeymoon, or with a group of friends, it is important to select the right island with the perfect atmosphere for your stay. The world’s most exclusive hotel brands are all represented in the Maldives, competing with one another to attain ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private pools, to in-room massages and private candle lit dinners on a sandbank. But for those looking for a more laid-back, modest stay, there are also some fantastic options.

The Maldives has a warm and humid climate and is influenced by two dominating monsoons. The dry season (northeast monsoon) runs from December to April, while the rainy season (southeast monsoon) runs from late May to November. Temperatures range between 25 and 32 degrees celsius throughout the year.

The livelihood of Maldivians traditionally depended on the seas, fishery being the main source of sustenance. While fishery still contributes significantly to the economy in terms of employment and income, tourism is the main source of income for the Maldivian economy today, so get in touch with us and help sustain this wonderful economy!
