Paradise on Earth: The Maldives

The ongoing pandemic is beginning to subside as more and more vaccines make their way to people’s arms, instilling confidence that far away exotic destinations are once again in reach. Many countries are starting to adapt to a post COVID world where people can enjoy their upcoming summer holiday vacations with safety protocols in place, enabling us to still enjoy the sunshine and spread our wings. Social distancing in the Maldives is extremely easy: it is an Indian Ocean island archipelago with over 1000 islands. This not only limits the number of people around, but it also ensures quick access to rapid testing at some of the most luxury resorts in the world. Additionally, each passenger upon arrival must provide a negative test. These protective measures have led to the Maldives having much lower death rates than other places. The Maldives has everything tourists need to enjoy a fun, safe, and unforgettable vacation. We all long for a sense of luxury and the Maldives is a paradise unlike no other. Let’s find out why.


LOCATION

The Maldives has a unique location with each resort tending to be on its own private island making it a safe and secure place. There are clear blue skies and waters, a

unique biodiversity of marine life, picture-perfect sceneries, and amazing tropical weather. It is said that the Maldives “is home to about 5% of the planet's reefs that comes with an explosion of colour contributed by soft and hard corals that form them. The reefs are home to a

thousand species of fish. Lured by the rich nutrients that flow in with the currents, large pelagic fishes such as manta rays and whale sharks also make the Maldives their home” (Maldives Marketing & Public Relations Corporation). The Maldives truly is a paradise on Earth unlike any other and tourists readily enjoy the ambient atmosphere, cultural landscape, and the vastness of the Indian Ocean all in one place.


OVERWATER BUNGALOWS

Undoubtedly a premier feature of the Maldives are the fascinating overwater bungalows that invite a sense of tranquillity as guests have a 360 degree view of the Indian Ocean and surrounding waters. The Maldives have the most overwater bungalows in the world, allowing for travellers to have access to privacy and luxury like nowhere else. Bungalows vary in size and shape touting some pretty cool features from water slides into the Ocean below, on-demand boat access, personal butlers, bathing pavilions, infinity pools, open air bathrooms and even a window glass plane on the floor below so you can easily see the eclectic marine life right beneath your feet! It’s like having your own personal aquarium inside. These

features are just the tip of the iceberg when you stay at the several resorts located in the Maldives.

The Maldives has the perfect setting for a dream vacation, as it is home to some of the best luxury hotels and resorts in the world. An endless amount of fun awaits all guests here. Some of the best resorts in the Maldives include the
