Make memories that last a lifetime, in the Maldives

Comprising of over 1,000 tiny islands, stretching across 900 kilometres of glistening turquoise waters, the Maldives encapsulates the very essence of heaven on earth.

World-famous for its luxurious over-water villas, uniquely soft, white-sand beaches, and a mesmerizing underwater wonderland, the Maldives sets the bar as the ultimate dream-like escape.

Each resort occupies its own individual island, so whether you are looking for a romantic honeymoon destination on your own private island, to indulge in 5-star all-inclusive luxury hospitality, an exciting, action-packed family holiday of a lifetime or to experience some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the world- the Maldives has it all!

Can't wait to escape? Jump straight to our MALDIVES ESCAPE OF THE MONTH


No one does luxury quite like this, indulge in overwater massages, experience fine dining in underwater restaurants, be pampered with personal butler service and forget the world on your own private stretch of sand. Although traditionally favoured as the destination of choice when it comes to honeymoons and romance, The Maldives is also becoming quite a hit with families. Most resorts offer an excellent range of children’s clubs and activities such as snorkelling schools, star gazing and coral nursery visits as well as experiences the whole family can enjoy like glass-bottom boat rides, alfresco cinema evenings and cookery classes!

Away from the resorts, you’ll find some of the best diving spots in the world, the Maldives is home to over 300 species of tropical fish, turtles, manta rays and various species of shark. The water is so warm, you won’t even need a wetsuit! Long dazzling white beaches boast velvet-like sand and its unique, away-from-it-all isolation regularly makes the Maldives the most lusted after island escape in the world.



The Residence Maldives is a five-star resort on the pristine island of Falhumaafushi in the Gaafu Alifu atoll. Designed in traditional Maldivian style with contemporary luxury, this resort offers unparalleled relaxation in a paradise setting. It boasts the first Spa by Clarins in the Maldives, an array of gourmet dining options, and various excursions such as dolphin cruises and castaway island picnics.
