Where to stay...

The Maldives has several resorts and hotels that offer a wide range of
services that fits to every guest seeking to have a one of a kind holiday
experience. Whether you just want to stay and relax beside the pool,
enjoy some featured water activities, walk barefoot on white sand beach
that's just in front of your villa, be pampered like a royalty, drink a
few bottles of beer and party in a different way, or just do nothing but
adore the majestic beauty of an uninterrupted view of the neighboring
islands, the Maldives resorts are just waiting for you. Resorts are
located in different atolls all across the Maldives.

What to do...

The Maldives has captured the excitement and fascination of scuba diver
and snorkeling enthusiasts around the world. With its top class diving
spots, it is a wonder that must be discovered. The warm water throughout
the year and high level of visibility, often exceeding 50 meters, make
diving an experience that is sought over and over again. Every resort in
the islands has professional diving schools and instructors that are
ready to conduct courses for both beginners and advanced divers. If
diving is not your cup of tea, then you can just take a dip on turquoise
water. A short swim from the beach and snorkellers can experience the
same pleasure from the surface.
Honeymooners and couples who are hoping to get married in a piece of
paradise go to the Maldives. But if you want to relax and do nothing, the
Maldives can be a very peaceful place to go to.

When to go...

On the map, the Maldives Islands are no less than a few splashes of ink.
The country is situated southwest of the tip of India and stretches all
the way to the equator. That said, the Maldives experiences a whole year
of sunshine but the best months to go are from December to April (the
rainy season is from May to November). These are also the times when
people pack the hotels and resorts.

The people are predominantly Muslims but with Dutch, Portuguese and
British influences.
