Maldives, for all these reasons, is the fashionable destination in the summer.

Dreaming of an earthly paradise after having lived through some of the most complicated months of our lives is a necessary aspiration for the traveling spirit that has been asleep within us for more than a year. Now, with the Covid-19 vaccination in full swing, that dream can already become a reality and the fashionable destination to put it into practice is Maldives, an amalgam of more than 1,100 islands that emerge in the middle of the coral of the Indian Ocean and that has earned for decades the title of one of the most exclusive destinations in the world.

Maldives is in vogue in 2021 and it is not the result of chance . Several ingredients play in its favor that make it the perfect corner to get rid of pandemic fatigue at a stroke. One of them is that it can boast of being a Covid-free destination, thanks to the vaccination of a high percentage of its population and practically all professionals in the tourism sector. To this is added, in addition, that at the end of 2020 it was cataloged as the best destination in the world in the World Travel Awards, considered the Oscars of tourism.

Maldives for all travelers

Although a priori it may seem that the Maldives is an exciting destination only for those seeking sun, beach and rest, the reality is that there are as many alternatives as travelers. In fact, there are hundreds of islands that have managed to be themed according to the visitor’s preferences, without overlooking the hotels, with exclusive and imaginative proposals that make the trip an unforgettable experience.

For couples

Almost any hotel in the Maldives can be a hit when traveling as a couple, but there are some options that take the cake. Seaside Finolhu , for example, boasts of being the only hotel in the Maldives that has a Beach Bubble, that is, a bubble stay that invites you to disconnect and feel in the most absolute privacy and under the stars.

Anantara Veli Maldives Resort does not fail if what you are looking for is to enjoy the peace and serenity of the Indian Ocean, as it is located on an island for adults only. Some of its bungalows have a private pool and personal host service, while its impressive spa offers circuits and rituals for two.

For gourmets

Seaside Filou is ideal for gastronomes, as it has the title of Best Luxury Beachside Restaurant, according to the 2020 World Luxury Restaurant Awards. Located on the opposite side of the spectacular sandbar of the resort, it is a pioneer in registering the brand toes-in-the-sand.

Another pleasant surprise for gourmets is Anantara Kilavah , as its underwater restaurant allows you to dine under the waves of the ocean or even floating on the water. It is even possible to explore the world’s first underwater cellar among sharks, turtles and tropical fish.

To go with children

Maldives can also be a good idea when traveling as a family, with children and teenagers. In fact, the possibilities of fun and entertainment are more than guaranteed for almost any age, thanks to the possibility of doing activities such as water sports, snorkeling or playing games on the beach. Grand Park Kodhipparu has villas with pools and direct access to the sea and, as Booking advises, its kids’ club does not disappoint.

Kandima Maldives also stands out , an ideal accommodation for families that boasts of having the longest outdoor pool in the archipelago, as well as water sports facilities and a multi-adventure beach club that delights children.

To go with friends

If you think of the Maldives as a destination to share with friends, your refuge may be Naladhu Private Island Maldives, as it is a private island that can be rented in its entirety. It consists of 20 very spacious houses with their own pool, as well as butler service 24 hours a day, making it ideal for large group celebrations. In addition, it has a wide range of sports such as water skiing, motor boats, among other options.

Varu by Atmosphere is an accommodation located in the North Malé Atoll, which makes it possible to perfectly combine the nightlife of the capital with the leisure possibilities of the surroundings, as recommended by Civitatis. It has facilities designed to practice any type of sport, as well as several perfect bars to extend the night.

To go with a pet

After this difficult year, our pets also deserve a good break and Maldives becomes a perfect destination for it. Beach Villa Ukulhas, located a few steps from Ukulhas beach, is suitable to go with our dog, since it offers rooms with a private beach area.

For divers

Maldives is a paradise for divers due to the marine diversity it offers, surrounded by corals and crystal clear waters, so almost any island can be a good option. However, the crowning glory goes to the luxurious LUX North Male Atoll Resort & Villas whose rooms are on the beach or over the water and have a private pool and terrace with views of the Indian Ocean. Although the best thing is that it has a world-renowned diving center, as well as facilities for water sports or Hatha yoga, among other options.

For surfers

Surf lovers have a must-see at Niyama Private Islands, as it is the only luxury surf resort in the Maldives with its own wave breaking directly off the coast. The complex is surrounded by several perfect spots for surfing, although it has guides that guide the guest on the most suitable times and places to vibrate to the fullest on the board.

For wellness lovers

Resting in the Maldives is a piece of cake, but it always helps to stay in a hotel with a good spa. And in this field, a sure hit is Joali Maldives, a haven of peace and calm inspired by tropical surroundings with the mission of reconnecting body and mind thanks to its sustainable architecture.
