The Story

Best time to go: All Year
Best for: Slow Travel, Ultimate Luxury Holidays, Honeymoons

There aren’t many better ways to experience the Maldives than this! This journey combines two of the most luxurious Maldivian resorts, staying firstly in Baros in a beach villa and then at Huvafen Fushi in an over-water villa on stilts. You link the two with an overnight luxury dhoni cruise to take you between the resorts. We always find the blend of beach and over-water villas gives you the best of both worlds.

We suggest starting at Baros, just 25 minutes from the Maldives international airport, and a resort that is perfect for couples or honeymooners. Baros has the highest level of repeat customers in the Maldives, and you will quickly see why – it is almost perfect. There are many dining options, a superb spa and a wonderful house-reef. Following your stay at Baros, board your private dhoni as the sunset sets, and feast on freshly prepared canapés and sipping chilled champagne.  You then stop at a remote sand-bank, where your on-board chef will BBQ a gourmet feast. Retreat back to your floating hotel room for the night.

The next morning, wake for an amazing champagne breakfast served by your dhoni staff. Cruise gently onto Huvafen Fushi, stopping for a snorkel or a dive. Spend your final three nights (or more) in an over-water Lagoon Bungalow with Pool. Huvafen is again an adults-only resort and ideal for couples or honeymooners. With a chic, trendy vibe, it is perfect to conclude your amazing experience in the Maldives.
