Seclusion, peace and tranquility - these are just some of the reasons why this popular destination has such an alluring appeal. Our luxury resorts in the Maldives are set among lush vegetation on private beaches, offering stunning views and easy access to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
When you’re not relaxing by the pool or being pampered, you won’t want to miss the chance to experience a desert island fantasy with a day trip to one of the uninhabited islands. Take a picnic basket and settle down on the pristine shorelines, search for shells and venture into the mysterious mangrove forests. During the evening, enjoy a candlelit dinner on a terrace in one of the local restaurants and sip a cocktail in the hotel bar while watching the sunset across the ocean.
As soon as you see the exquisite blue lagoons that surround every atoll and island in the Maldives, you’ll be reaching for your bathing suit. The clear and inviting waters offer some of the finest diving, snorkelling and watersport opportunities in the world. Delve beneath the waves and discover vibrant coral reefs, skeletal shipwrecks and shoals of brightly coloured fish. Further out at sea, there’s the chance to swim up close with turtles, gentle whale sharks and manta rays. With diving sites suitable for all levels of experience, the wonders of the underwater world can be experienced by everyone.
If you prefer to stay dry, take a trip on a whale submarine or glass-bottomed boat, or go deep sea fishing. Most hotels also have their own watersport centres where you can learn to windsurf, sail and kayak.
Time to relax
If you’re looking for an indulgent experience, most resorts feature serene spa and wellness centres. Spend a day unwinding in steam rooms and saunas, or treat yourself to a facial or coconut-infused massage. The Maldives is also home to the world’s first underwater spa, where you can enjoy a rejuvenating treatment while watching reef fish glide by.
Other laid-back activities include leisurely boat cruises, where you can choose to go on a guided tour or sail the lagoons yourself. A catamaran can be hired with or without a crew and is the perfect way to soak up the sights of the atolls.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
