These example itineraries are here to get you inspired, but no two True Travel holidays are the same. Our Maldives experts start planning each trip with a blank piece of paper, designing every itinerary 100% personalised to you.
The Maldives are formed from a cluster of 26 coral atolls, located in the Indian Ocean off the southwest coast of India and Sri Lanka, boasting some of the best beaches in the world and seriously luxurious island resorts. With the islands’ unabated beauty, it’s easy to see why the Maldives has become the Mecca for honeymooners and couples, given the attraction of incredible resorts and spas where visitors simply relax and unwind. As a showcase for overwater villas, outdoor bathrooms, underwater restaurants, stargazing, unforgettable sunsets, stylish interiors, and yoga studios and tennis courts overlooking crystal blue waters, these luxury hotels promise you a trip of a lifetime.
Marine life surrounds the islands, with gargantuan caves, schools of brightly coloured tropical fish and vast swathes of coral awaiting close to the shore. For those seeking extraordinary experiences head to Hanifaru Bay, a popular spot to swim alongside a squadron of manta rays. Further out at sea, snorkels and fins can lead you to five species of sea turtles (frequently spotted at Turtle Reef) and the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, in South Ari Atoll, one of the world’s most desirable locations to see them.
For those wishing to take a break from complete relaxation, immerse yourself in an array of exhilarating aquatic activities on offer, such as jet skiing, kitesurfing, parasailing, banana boating and paddleboarding. The Maldives is an unrivalled epicentre for snorkelling and diving, and with most resorts offering PADI qualification classes, beginners are in the right hands.
For those restless in paradise, the freedom of the expansive mill-pond sea is hugely enticing. Glide into the distance on a luxury yacht and sip on sundowners as the burnt orange sun slowly sets behind the glistening turquoise waters. Alternatively, take pleasure in the memorable experiences of game fishing, and inspecting the underwater world 100 feet beneath the ocean from the inside of a submarine.
Cheval Blanc was absolutely amazing. That place is off the charts and the rooms are incredible and the style and design are perfect. As a standard room (considering all the rooms in the resort are the same), they will be the best in the world, that I’m sure! The staff are amazing and accommodating, and I couldn’t fault the food – I could go on and on! Thank you so much for all your work organising, genuinely, the most perfect trip.
