About Maldives

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Maldives is ideal for visitors looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in serene surroundings. The small republic of the Maldives is a luxury holiday destination that possesses some of the most astonishing and beautiful underwater life in the world. Consisting of over a thousand tiny coral islands, the Maldives is traditionally a fishing and trading nation which converted to Islam in the 12th century. Aware of its magnificent natural resources, in recent years the country has striven to maintain its traditional way of life and preserve the natural beauty of the islands whilst offering visitors a secluded and exclusive holiday experience. With turquoise seas, coral sand beaches, swaying palm trees and thatched huts and cottages, the Maldives represents for many the perfect picture of a typical deserted tropical island, a dream holiday destination offering peace and quiet with hotels which epitomise barefoot luxury. The Maldives hotels and island resorts we feature really are the very best. Whilst they all look idyllic, and clearly with the deluxe resorts we offer, you will receive luxurious accommodation and outstanding service, there are important distinctions that our sales team can draw your attention to: distance from Male and how you travel to the resort (speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight plus boat), the size of the island (some are very small and intimate, others are found on larger islands or connecting islands, beach or overwater villas (the overwater villas are usually, but not always, more expensive than beach villas) and the range of facilities (dining options, water sports and diving).

Highlights of the Maldives

For many, the Maldives offer some of the most fascinating underwater exploration available, from both snorkelling and diving. There are over a hundred different species of fish, from angelfish to flying fish, snapper and triggerfish, stingray and shark, as well as turtles and numerous corals of a multitude of colours. If your resort is near Malé then the capital is worth a brief visit with its mosques, traditional houses with rounded corners and tea shops with a selection of ‘short eats’ including rice pudding, curried fish cakes and small bananas.

Cultural highlights of the Maldives

Bodu beru traditional music and dance, traditional seating - the undholi (like a hammock) and the joli (a net seat hung from a wooden frame), local crafts including mats, lacquer work and jewellery, traditional dhoni boats.
