With Bespoke Holidays to Maldives you can find this small collection of paradise atolls is one of the most unspoilt destinations you’ll find on Earth. Clear blue sea laps against pristine white sandy beaches, tropical palm trees sway in the gentle breeze, transport is by private boat or seaplane, and the majority of these tiny Indian Ocean islands host just one resort each. The people are open and friendly and the food is fresh and delicious – a tasty fish curry is the national dish. Unspoilt coral reefs and abundant marine life including manta rays, sharks and turtles make the Maldives a diver’s dream destination. Whether you are looking for pristine beaches, luxury hotels, fantastic cuisine or taking to the water the Maldives has it all.
