From Hotels to Water Villas
Hotels in this part of the world are more resorts than anything else. The Maldives features a full selection of three-, four-, and five-star resorts, including well-respected names like Lux, Constance, and Four Seasons. Maldives resorts are known around the world for their unparalleled hospitality combined with local culture.
Most of the four- and five-star Maldives hotels feature well-appointed rooms with amenities that make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Rooms typically come with private patios or balconies featuring great views of the ocean or the resort's gardens. As a rule, guests can choose from beach and water villas, garden villas, and standard rooms.
Onsite amenities generally include wellness spas, swimming pools, complementary and paid-for water sports, fine dining, and more. And because Maldives resorts are all very walkable, visitors never have to go far to find exactly what they are looking for. Whether it is a day soaking up the sun on a white sand beach or a cold drink at the swim-up bar, every need is catered to.
Dining Options at Maldives Resorts
A Maldives holiday is intended to be an all-inclusive holiday that allows you to spend all of your time at the resort. As such, nearly every Maldives hotel features at least one restaurant. Most of the four- and five-star properties offer multiple dining options.
Many of the restaurants feature regional cuisine that takes advantage of locally-grown produce and other ingredients. Resorts with more than one restaurant are more likely to feature a wider variety and may include cuisine from across Asia and the Middle East to European favourites like Italian and French.
If you are looking for something special, some of the Maldives resorts offer undersea dining for a truly incredible experience. And of course, don't forget dining alfresco on the beach. Nothing is quite as romantic as an intimate dinner for two as the sun goes down and the gentle waves lap against the shore.
