We have a page devoted to luxury Maldives resorts and we’ve also got some tips as to what you should be looking for when seeking a luxury Maldives Holiday...
... So why not sit back and enjoy the ride!
What to look for
Privacy, personalised services and spa treatments. These three elements essentially make up a luxury resort in the Maldives – Luxury resorts in the Maldives are world class. The seclusion of some of the five star islands can mean there are only 12 guests on the island resort. The activities will in some cases be determined by you and your villa host or perhaps outlined by the resort.
Choose from desert island escapes with picnics on the beach to candlelit suppers in your villa or again on the beach. You only need look at some of the pictures on this site to see just how exclusive and luxurious the Maldives are. Luxury holidays in the Maldives, mean that you orchestrate your own day. You choose when you dine and what you eat when you do… Yes folks, you’ll create your own menu on your fabulous five star holiday in the Maldives and it won’t be just any old food, but award winning international cuisine… Yum!
But worry not, if you can’t think of your own food itinerary, then you’ll be pleased to know that five star Maldives resorts can have up to 7 restaurants, yes you heard us seven restaurants!
Luxury villas in the Maldives should offer complete privacy. Whether it’s a plunge pool area or private beach area. Yes you read that correctly; closed off, private beach areas. Your own personal piece of a tropical island… Bliss.
Inside your Maldives villa, you should expect nothing less than, large spaces, bath tubs big enough for two, open air showers and of course the all important flat screen TV…
... Not that you travel thousands of miles just so you don’t miss your favourite soap opera! Some five star resorts even have separate living and sleeping areas, so you really can create a home from home.
On luxury Maldives resorts, the décor is chic and sumptuous and you can expect to see lots of wood and lots of thatched roofs.
If a resort isn’t offering lots of enclosed outside spaces then the trade off should be a large inside space – a space that feels like an apartment, with separate living and sleeping areas his and hers bathrooms.
Anything else to keep in mind…?
With luxury Maldives resorts, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to book it as an all inclusive break.
These are the resorts where the guests advisestheir villa host (that’s a butler in old money) as to what they’d like to eat that day, without needing to ask whether it's on the menu.
You’re completely in charge and you pay for that privilege.
We’ve also seen that prices for the same resort can vary widely so it’s best to shop around, after all the more you save on the price of the holiday, the more you get to spend when you’re on holiday… Huzzah!
