The Maldives is a collection of islands in the Indian Ocean, home to palm-fringed beaches of powdery-soft white sand and warm, clear waters. Here you can snorkel in blue-green lagoons, swim among brightly colored coral reefs and cruise to uninhabited islands.
Generally the tourist resorts have their own private beaches. Spend long, lazy hours relaxing on the sands while resort staff bring you refreshments. Then treat yourself to a spa treatment.
The clear waters of the Maldives are ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving and underwater photography. Resorts have fully equipped dive schools with lessons available for beginners and intermediates.
Dive at the Banana Reef Dive Site to see pufferfish, bannerfish and several species of grouper. Experienced divers can look for leopard sharks at Gangehi Island's Gangehi Kandu dive site. The islands also have shallow lagoons perfect for snorkeling.
Most of the beaches and resorts rent out equipment for watersports. Go kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, surfing and jet skiing. Charter a boat to fish for tuna, marlin, dorado and barracuda.
While most people come to relax on the beaches or play in the sea, the capital city of Malé is well worth a visit. Gaze at the beautiful architecture of the 17th-century Grand Friday Mosque. The religious building is made from coral stone decorated with carvings, calligraphy and intricate patterns. See examples of Maldivian art at the National Art Gallery. Watch freshly caught fish being gutted at Malé Fish Market.
Book a day trip to one of the less-frequented locations where Maldivians live. Experience local life and culture, visit fishing villages and buy traditional handmade goods.
Most visitors to the Maldives stay in beach bungalows or water bungalows at self-contained luxury private island resorts. The most common way to get into the islands is to fly into Malé. From there, seaplanes or boats will take you to your resort.
Enjoy the very warm temperatures of the Maldives at any time of year. The calm and relaxation are enchanting.
Very friendly staffs and clean place. This is the resort I would recommend to everyone who love the sea,sand and sun. Located only 15 mins ride by boat. Resort is still undergoing some constructions, cannot wait to go back again. Thank you Bandos.
i very like this beautiful place ,warming staff , delicious food .
The hotel was very new and close to the Male airport (about 10 mins drive). Asif from the Hotel welcomed us at the airport and he was very friendly and nice. Breakfast choices are fair. Room is pleasant and the bathroom is spacious. However, the room was smaller than what was perceived from the picture. ...
Amazing experience at Meeru. For the first time, I felt like I was treated with full respect and the service is unbeatable. The food is very good at the 2 restaurants on the island, and the amenities are clean and abundant. The hotel offered us a night on their boat, and a lovely dinner. It was incredible! ...
Everything you can think of down to the very last detail is exceptional. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. There is not one thing I would change about the experience.
