Special rates during out of school holidays
After (too) many months spent in urban areas, enjoy a smooth landing by seaplane in the Maldives, a string of beautiful islands bordered by the sea. Here, you’ll find the charm, intimacy and exclusivity so sought-after. As luxury is not always about high fares, several Maldivian resorts are offering out-of-school special holiday opportunities, departing from Paris and other main European cities.
To take advantage of these offers and have a break for two, without the children, the Islandian experts share their advice:
•« The Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a 5-star boutique-hotel with newly renovated villas, in warm island tones. Nestled in the South Nilandhe atoll, the resort shares with its visitors the pure beauty of the surroundings. Here, we breath true love at the heart of vast natural spaces without skyscrapers! Just before school holidays, we often receive great deals at attractive prices. To learn more about it, contact us to design your first tailor-made getaway.” – Yannick, Islandian expert.
•« The Atmosphere Kanifushi is an all-inclusive Eden. Half an hour's flight by seaplane from Malé, a fine sandy beach is revealed, dotted with sumptuous individual villas. With its "Platinum Plus, Premium All-Inclusive Plan" package, the Atmosphere Kanifushi holds a real plus which allows lovers to fully enjoy their romantic holiday in the Maldives, in complete serenity.” – Patrice, Islandian expert.
Great wedding anniversary and honeymoon offers
Traditional, yet legendary, the honeymoon is the perfect excuse to fly abroad together before getting stuck back in routine and feeling the well-known “post-wedding” effect. As for the wedding anniversary, it is the ideal opportunity to surprise your partner! To guide you in this choice, the Islandian experts have sorted it out and passionately share with you their preferences:
•« Perched on an emerald lagoon, stands the Coco Bodu Hithi’s luxurious tropical huts. On stilts as well as on land, await an array of restaurants for refined cuisine lovers. During the day, you may relax at Coco Spa to enjoy exceptional treatments and massages, in a both glamorous and wild atmosphere! » – Shirley, Islandian expert.
•"Secretly nestled on an isolated island, the Constance Moofushi is synonymous of luxury in all simplicity. Here, everything is taken care of. Disembark, drop your luggage and let yourself be guided in this all-inclusive cocoon. The U Spa of this 5-star hotel is equipped with two double massage rooms. I strongly recommend that you make your reservation before your arrival, to benefit from a unique treatment for two, created from natural elements. » – Thierry, Islandian expert.
Special moments in adults-only hotels, without the kids
Not far from India, in the very heart of the Indian Ocean, eternal summer is the greatest charm of the many secretly settled islands. Surrounded by the Arabian Sea and the Laccadive Sea, the various atolls of the Maldives intrigue by their natural beauty. Up close or from afar, it only takes a few seconds to understand that the Maldives' treasure is definitely its surrounding environment.
The Maldives is bathed in daylight and in alternately turquoise and emerald water, but also in excellence and luxury at all levels. Real paradise for tailor-made services, highly private events, exceptional hotels and all kinds of whims, it is the ideal holiday destination for a secret getaway, far from the crowd.
Masks and fins in the morning, sun oil and tanning during the day, fruity cocktails and prime snacks in the moonlight.... Our advice? Enjoy your time together! And to do so, the Islandian experts suggest two worth-a-visit addresses:
•« For the bride and groom looking for a peaceful and quiet setting, I suggest our 7 nights and 8 days Maldivian Castaway. This breakaway offers the opportunity to stay in a Standard Beach Bungalow and on half-board basis at Rihiveli The Dream, a superb hotel nestled in an islet of fine sand in the atoll of South Malé. During your holiday, a collection of activities such as access to water sports, a Beach Volley session or a barbecue lunch on Sunrise Island will be included. Few addresses are bound to satisfy your Robinson Crusoe escape fantasy like the Rihiveli The Dream does! » – Thierry, Islandian expert.
•« Whether you are looking for a relaxing seaside getaway or the excitement of living over the water, in a villa on stilts, the JA Manafaru will, undeniably, satisfy your desires with its 84 villas and suites. Here, you may enjoy magnificent sunsets with glowing reflections and a privileged contact with nature; all in a romantic setting with a natural but sophisticated charm. I would suggest that you opt for a stay in a Beach Bungalow with a private swimming pool to enjoy the 100% Maldivian-style luxury! » – Patrice, Islandian expert.
