Article posted 17 July 2019

The Maldives islands glitter and shine in the blue Indian Ocean like facets of a sapphire. Inspiring dreamers and tempting travellers from all over the world, these islands are blessed with miles of pearl-white beaches, lush exotic greenery and clear turquoise waters stretching out as far as the eye can see. Sink your feet into the warm sand and you’ll quickly see why visitors call this paradise on earth.
Take a look at our favourite things about the Maldives and start dreaming of a magical escape in this beautiful archipelago.

Soak up the beauty of the garden islands

Thanks to their remote location and unspoilt natural beauty, the Maldives are home to some of the most breath-taking views on earth. Wander winding paths through palm trees and tropical flowers, and spot multi-coloured birds flitting from tree to tree, filling the air with their exotic birdsong. Laze on a spit of white sand surrounded by gently lapping waves, as if it were your own private island. Or take a dip under the water and visit a wonderland of vibrant coral reefs and fantastic sea life.
Our Maldives resorts seamlessly combine world-class design with the natural beauty of the islands. Club Med Kani is an eden for nature lovers, nestled amongst the flora and fauna on a beautiful garden-like island reserved solely for Club Med guests. Meanwhile our ecologically-friendly Finolhu Villas sit on the beautifully preserved, private island of Gasfinolhu right next door, perfectly situated to enjoy the sunrise or the sunset.

Find a world of family fun

The Maldives aren’t just for honeymoons and romantic getaways, though couples will definitely find plenty to enjoy in their private villa over the sea. There are kid-friendly adventures and family-focused activities galore, ready to make lifelong memories.
Our kid friendly Maldives resorts have kids clubs specially designed for babies, little ones, children and teens. Kani is the best island in the Maldives for families, thanks to our dedicated children’s corner with arts and crafts, kayaking and sailing lessons, beach games and sports, and even a flying trapeze. Families staying in our Finolhu Villas can also enjoy Club Med Kani’s kids clubs at any time, so you can relax and enjoy the sun, knowing your children are having the time of their lives.

Indulge in a little luxury

The Maldives are home to some of the most luxurious holiday experiences in the world. Pleasure-seekers will love the sheer level of indulgence to be found on these beautiful islands, from beachfront spas to the iconic Maldives overwater villas.
Club Med Kani has been designed to deliver the ultimate in luxury. The Kandu restaurant serves freshly caught fish, grilled to melt-in-your-mouth perfection, while the MANDARA spa offers Balinese and Hot Stone massage with aromatic oils. Stay in an overwater suite, sat on stilts in a turquoise lagoon, offering direct access to the Indian Ocean and spectacular views.
Enjoy all the pleasures of Kani, with a little extra peace and quiet on Gasfinolhu. Our luxury Finolhu Villas come with dedicated hosts to see to your every need, from preparing breakfast in the morning to serving champagne in the evening. Choose a villa with a private stretch of beach or a staircase into the sea. Whichever you choose, you’ll also have your own pool and private decking to enjoy.
However, the epitome of luxury lies in Manta, our 5-Trident exclusive lounge on Kani. Enjoyed by guests of both islands, here you can enjoy all-day beverages, watch fish swimming below you from an overwater hammock and toast the sunset with complimentary champagne served from 6pm.

Channel your inner explorer

Don’t be fooled by the serene lapping waves and the gently swaying palm trees; the Maldives have a whole host of adventures waiting to be discovered.
