10 Reasons to Visit the Maldives
The Maldives conjures up images of infinite silky beaches set against a backdrop of a vivid , Tiffany blue ocean. While that isn’t too far off at all, and the Maldives is nothing short of magical, something is missing in the picture – you! To tap into the country’s ‘Visit Maldives Year 2016‘ campaign – and to talk you into seeing the islands in all their out-of-this-world glory for yourself at least once in your life – we have rounded up ten reasons to visit the Maldives.
So what is it that makes the Maldives so unique and special?
1. Astonishing aerial views of the Atolls
Life is about the journey – and the journey on board a seaplane in the Maldives is likely to be the most scenic one is your life. Captivating views of the Indian Ocean, submerged coral reefs, islands and lagoons will leave you in a pleasant suspense of the beauty that awaits you at the Resort.
2. Plenty of sun throughout the year
The Maldives’ Equatorial climate results in small variations in temperature. Any time of the year is best to visit the Maldives, as air and water temperatures rarely drop below 28 degrees Celsius.
3. World-class diving and snorkelling
Being one of the planet’s most renowned diving and snorkelling destinations, the Maldives never fails to impress. Dive sites, suitable for any level of experience, make splash with vibrant fish life and allow you to experience Nat Geo-like sights first hand. Lhaviyani Atoll’s most majestic? Manta Rays in season!
4. Whiter-than-white beaches
Uncrowded. Shimmering. Waiting for you to sink your toes in. Need we say more?
5. Fine dining on the beach
A favourite to our honeymooners and anyone celebrating their special occasion while at the Resort. Here’s proof that romance is very much alive!
6. Small islands
On most islands, everything is within walking distance. Kuredu is the Maldives’ second largest resort, yet you can circumnavigate the island in about an hour. If you’d like to see if even a smaller island would be your thing, visit Komandoo Maldives Resort, one of the country’s smallest and top romantic resorts.
7. One-fits-all resorts
Whether it be your honeymoon, wedding anniversary, long-awaited beach break or a family holiday, you can’t go wrong with heading to the Maldives. Yet the choice of the resort is crucial for your holiday to live up to your expectations. Unlike many Maldives’ resorts, Kuredu is both children-friendly and understanding of those after a quiet, romantic getaway. We’ve found a way by having three resorts within one!
8. Luxury spa treatments
Relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments are the Maldives’ resorts middle name. Pampering at the award-winning Duniye Spa allows one to embark on a journey of complete relaxation.
9. Striking natural beauty
Even though your every whim will be taken care of at the Resort, get the big picture of the Maldives by hopping on a boat. Experience what it’s like to be surrounded by crystalline water and everything else your Maldives’ dreams were made of: pods of spinning Dolphins, tropical, lush islands and secluded sandbanks calling your name. The remoteness and the spectacular landscape will leave you wowed.
10. Vibrant night life
Before you call it a day, you can let go at the evening entertainment programme. From live bands, Maldivian shows, diving movie nights to Friday White Night Parties, we promise you won’t be bored at Kuredu. Though if you’re looking for quiet, uneventful and romantic nights, that’s perfectly fine, too.
