With pristine beaches lined with the swaying palms, dazzling underwater world, green jungles, extremely luxurious resorts and welcoming people – there’s little to wonder why Maldives is synonymous to paradise. The famous group of islands are known for being a heaven on earth but Vaadhoo Island has a lot of surprises that are revealed at night. The mesmerizing shining water looks like a mirror that reflects the sparkling stars above. However, the secret is this: phytoplankton – the marine microbes – are bioluminescent and emanate the blue glow. Travel by boat or seaplane is common on inter-island trips from Malé to uninhabited islands or small fishing villages, many of which offer guesthouses or homestays. The most typical travel accommodations are luxury spa resorts and overwater bungalows on wooden stilts.
Male (mar-lay) offers the best chance to see the ‘real’ Maldives away from the resort buffet and infinity pool. Overlooked by tall, brightly coloured buildings and surrounded by incongruously turquoise water, Male is a hive of activity, the engine driving the Maldives’ economy. The island capital of the Maldives teems with high rises and narrow streets, all ringed by seawalls. Shopaholics can savour Male’s flavours in the local markets, which are packed with fresh produce, and along Chaandanee Magu, the spot for local souvenirs, such as carved wooden dhonis, miniature replicas of the boats dotting area waters. The golden-domed Friday Mosque presides over the landscape, while the underwater riches of the atolls lure scuba enthusiasts from around the globe.
Every resort in the Maldives is its own private island, and with over 100 to choose from and the exciting thing is selecting where you want to stay. At the top end, the world’s most exclusive hotel brands compete with each other to attain ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools to in-room massages and pillow menus.
