The awe-inspiring landscape of the Maldives shapes the dreams of many worldwide wanderers. The country is widely recognised for its pristine white-sand beaches with turquoise waters, rich underwater environment packed with rare fish and colourful sea creatures, and, world-class hotels and resorts that offer a stay like nowhere else.
All of the above – and much more! – make Maldives a lavish destination that very few get the chance to experience. Of course, Maldives has seduced many celebrities with its paradise-like landscapes, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Kardashians, Fernando Torres, Michael Phelps, Cristiano Ronaldo – and the list goes on.
One of Maldives’ peculiarities, that make it differ from other exotic destinations like the Bahamas or the Philippines, is that most of the hotels are located on small islets all by themselves. This means that in many resorts, you will enjoy total privacy and seclusion, meeting with none other than the staff and the other guests.
On your first trip in the Maldives, we think you should stay in a resort where you can do many activities including getting a glimpse of the local life. Maybe meet locals and make some very good friendships, who knows? This is why we have chosen this superb resort located in the exotic Raa Atoll, 151 km north of the capital city of Male.
