Welcome to Maldives
The Maldives is one of the world’s most geographically dispersed nations with over 1,192 coral islands dotted along 180 kilometres. This unique setting is in the heart of Maldivian tourism, offering over 140 hotels, each self-contained on its own island.
Must Have Experiences
The Maldives experiences two seasons every year. It’s sunny and dry from December to April. And has a few showers in May to November, brought in by the South West trade winds. But the sun usually shines brightly for more than 7 hours of the day.
It has 31 protected areas of marine biodiversity and the designated UNESCO biosphere reserve in Baa Atoll famous for its manta rays.

The country has been independent through its known history, except for a short period of Portuguese occupation in the 16th Century. This was followed by a period of voluntary British protection.
The county’s history can be traced through a number of dynasties, ruled by 93 Sultans and 4 Sultanas. The Maldives became a republic in 1968 when the sultanate was abolished after a referendum.
Guests are free to wear whatever they like whilst on the resorts, however when visiting the local islands and the capital, we do advise guests to cover their shoulders.
