When you close your eyes and think of the Maldives, you will be imagining pristine turquoise waters lapping softly against luxury water bungalows on stilts. You are right, yet the reality is even better. The Maldives is simply the queen of Indian Ocean destinations. Each luxury resort is set on its own private island, shielded by a picture-perfect lagoon. These are surrounded by a coral reef teeming with brightly coloured marine life. Our luxury Maldives holidays are all about choice. We will find you your perfect island.
In many ways, the problem is deciding between them. Having seen all of the amazing resorts in the Maldives, we can help you compare and contrast. This allows you honest travel advice to select the luxury accommodation that is perfect for you. Whether you are travelling on a luxury honeymoon and wanting the most romantic retreat, or as a family where the children can delve into world-class kids clubs or the island which offers the best diving or snorkelling, we help you find the place to go. We are absolute specialists at carefully tailoring an itinerary to combine a dash of culture beforehand. These combinations include Sri Lanka, India, Oman or Dubai. Furthermore, we can arrange creative tours that might include a night or two on a luxury dhoni, island hopping through atolls enabling you to see a little more of the Maldives.
This is just a selection of suggested itineraries that are there to help you with your ideas and to start the conversation with us about planning your tailor-made holiday. All our holidays are private for you and your party, and can depart on any day you like. We can adapt and change any element of these journeys, or design an itinerary from scratch around your travelling plans.
This is just an overview of the hotels and lodges we feature, from characterful boutique lodges to luxury hotels. We do have a range of other hotels that we use, so if you don't see from our portfolio what you are looking for, we almost certainly know about it and can help plan an itinerary using it.

Visiting Maldives in January
January is one of the very best months to visit the Maldives, but the hotel prices will usually be highest.
Visiting Maldives in February
February is a superb month to travel to the Maldives, with the least chance of rain. As it is so good, many of the resorts get booked up well in advance.
Visiting Maldives in March
Again, March is another fantastic month to travel to the Maldives, with clear waters and dry weather.
Visiting Maldives in April
April is again outstanding, with a slight chance of approaching showers later in the month.
Visiting Maldives in May
May generally is the season when you find the best offers from the various resorts and a greater chance of rain, but as we said, it usually washes over quickly. The waters tend to get a little murkier during May, but this only really affects diving and not snorkelling.
Visiting Maldives in June
June is another 'low-season' month, but perfectly good to visit.
Visiting Maldives in July
July again has a slightly higher chance of rainfall and is a great destination to consider for a family summer holiday.
Visiting Maldives in August
Admittedly, August tends to get rather busy as the Europeans arrive on their summer holidays. You can combine with the north of Sri Lanka for a little culture, making for a wonderful two-week adventure.
Visiting Maldives in September
Importantly, September is the last month when you get excellent offers, but we have found it to be a great month weather-wise in the Maldives.
Visiting Maldives in October
October is moving back into high-season when the hotels up their prices a little more and is the best time to see manta rays and whale sharks. There is a chance of rain showers if there is a more intense north-west monsoon in Sri Lanka.
Visiting Maldives in November
November is another month to be aware that you might get a little rain, but is generally absolutely perfect.
Visiting Maldives in December
The chance of rain recedes during December, so that by the end (especially over Christmas and New Year) and the weather is dry and lovely.
The Maldives is quite simply an all-year-round destination, and being so close to the equator the temperatures only really vary a few degrees around the 30 degree mark. Technically, the monsoon arrives from May to September, but as the islands are so low-lying, the showers wash over fairly quickly, and if anything is a fairly dramatic interlude.
