Maldives holidays & resorts
Tours in the Maldives are probably as close to heaven as any traveller can experience. Sprinkled like 1,000 tiny jewels in the cobalt Indian Ocean, it’s little wonder that this enormous archipelago of coral islets has become a password for paradise, thanks to their powder-white beaches, nodding palms and blissful turquoise waters.
Our Maldives tours come as part and parcel of our tours of Sri Lanka, so you’ll get to experience the best of this resplendent island before flying south to the Maldives themselves. And once you’re here, you’ll have time to drink in all the pleasures and tranquillity that Maldives holidays are known for – lolling on coral sands, swimming in bath-warm seas, snorkelling amid exotic reefs and relaxing like never before.
Highlights of our Maldives tours
Our tour to the Maldives start by showcasing the highlights of Sri Lanka. Discover the bustling capital of Colombo before delving into the lush interior to wow at the ancient ruins of former capital Anuradhapura and Sigiriya, where a 5th century royal fortress perches on a 182-metre chunk of jungle rock. You’ll also witness the magnificent rock temples of Dambulla, the evocative town of Kandy and the beautiful mountains around Nuwara Eliya, the 19th century hill town that served as a cool summer retreat for the British.
From here, you can extend your holiday with time in the Maldives. Choose from our all-inclusive Maldives resorts and we’ll transport you to Malé, the Maldives’ capital, before whisking you by speedboat or seaplane to your chosen island hotel. As you approach, you’ll get glimpses of the unbridled beauty ahead. Cue palm-shrouded islets ringed with dazzling white sands and baby-blue lagoons. Beachside chalets and luxurious water villas standing on stilts above the water. And a tempting choice of spa treatments and watersports to indulge your senses.
Lounge on the sands, enjoy sunset strolls along the shore or wallow in an Ayurvedic massage. Or, if you’re feeling active, snorkel around eye-popping coral gardens, scuba dive with manta rays and turtles, or try sailing or waterskiing. And whichever of our Maldives resorts you choose, you’ll enjoy delicious all-inclusive meals and local drinks, plus a choice of à la carte restaurants for when you want something extra special.
