The Maldives is a mesmerising sight to behold. Consisting of 1192 islands, the Maldives is truly a delicate natural wonder. The striking and serene imagery of the deep blue sea blending into a turquoise lagoon, its waves, serenely lapping on the sandy white beach of your Maldives hotel is almost always a constant in the Maldives.
Scattered across 90,000 square kilometres of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives stretches out over the equator - the southern tip of the resort nation crossing and encompassing the 0° mark. A tropical paradise in the truest sense of the word, the Maldives is 99 percent sea with less than one percent land. With the highest point in most islands, including Maldives resorts, averaging just one meter above the sea, the Maldives is considered a delicate, environmental wonder - both above and below the sea. As such, extra care is given to maintain the natural balance. The Maldives has 25 protected reefs. And protected marine wildlife includes sharks and turtles with a total ban on turtle products and shark fishing banned in designated areas.
Resorts in the Maldives have a variety of holiday experiences on offer to the discerning traveller. Your stay in any Maldives resort will let you choose from just the serene enjoyment of your natural environment and the more adventurous choices of surfing, jet skiing and a variety of other water sports. Almost all the Maldives resorts will cater to your snorkelling or diving needs while also offering you ample avenues of pure relaxation - spa treatments are currently becoming the norm in most resort islands.
