Want to roll out of bed and wiggle your toes in bath-warm turquoise water? Or lounge on the floury white sand of a private island, being served drinks without having to do so much as lift a finger? It’s all within your grasp when you check into on of the fantastic hotels in the Maldives.
There are almost as many five-star hotels on the islands as there are types of fish swimming around the Maldives' reefs. With so many great options to choose from, you’re certain to find the perfect place to unpack your bags, whether you’re travelling as a family, solo or as a couple.
With luxury resorts far outnumbering ordinary hotels and hostels, tourism in the Maldives is really all about the five-star experience.
Remoteness is a common theme among the Maldives’ high-end resorts, with many located on otherwise uninhabited islands where there are no other facilities. So if all you want to think about is which swimsuit and sunglasses to wear that day, then a five-star resort could be just the ticket.
If you fancy a more active holiday in the Maldives, the option of independent travel is there for the taking. Though resorts were once the only option for travellers to this glorious tropical nation, a series of smaller guesthouses have sprung up on the islands over recent years.
Nevertheless, it is still very much the norm for tourists to visit the Maldives on a package deal that includes board, food and transport. So even on inhabited islands, restaurants and other tourist facilities are a little thin on the ground.
